Kotatsu is a heated blanketed coffee table, invented in 14th century Japan, and can be found in most Japanese homes during the winter. While they are the focal point of Japanese homes during the winter, they usually aren’t the prettiest furniture.
A mid-century masterpiece in Toorak, designed by none other than architect Roy Grounds of NGV fame! The home received many accolades when first built in the early 1950′s, and won the Victorian Architecture Medal in 1954. A classic, quintessentially Melbourne home.
