This 86-Square-Foot Paris Apartment Is Totally Livable

How much does size really matter? Judging by this tiny home in France, not a whole lot -- as long as the space is functional.

On the seventh floor of an apartment building in Paris, there's an 86-square-foot apartment complete with a bed, kitchen, bathroom, table and chairs, closet, bathroom and storage space. Originally a maid's room, Kitoko Architecture Firms transformed this studio space for a client's au pair using the "concept of the swiss army knife," according to digital architecture and design magazine Design Boom.

Basically, that means there's more to the space than meets the eye. After some sliding and unfolding, that becomes very clear. Watch the video above for proof.
