Time & Style Residence
Renewal and Reopening

Time & Style Residence was renewed open in December 2020 after a month of complete renovation and is reborn as a store that comprehensively purposes living spaces.

In addition to movable furniture such as sofas, chairs, and tables, the shop features ten models in the House Storage lineup of original home storage furniture. 

This renewed store is a place where you can experience products that achieve residential functionality with great design. 

The curtains and rugs’ lineup, indispensable decorative elements, carefully selected, features high-quality items from Japan and overseas. The store also offers a complete lineup of original tableware, as it aims to create a space where customers can check out product features and displays and storage methods.

Time & Style Residence will continue proposing expressive spaces for every client based on consultation with planning staff and the condition of customers’ residences.

We want to express our sincere gratitude for the many years of patronage from our customers since the Time & Style Residence opening in 2003. While we have kept the reopening low-key under the COVID-19 pandemic, we are delighted that the day has come to reveal the new Time & Style Residence.

We look forward to your visit.

Residential Storage Furniture: House Storage

House Storage is a line of Time & Style residential storage furniture that values functionality, natural materials, and safety. 

To achieve a sense of unity and beautiful living environments that connect to the entire space, House Storage pursues fixed-storage furniture imbued with comfort, practicality, and contentment. 

In the same way as movable furniture such as sofas, chairs, and tables, this storage furniture is also carefully crafted piece by piece by artisans, with attention to high-level skills and the everyday ease of use in every detail of living spaces. 

By re-examining the modern living space where industrialization and convenience have been pushed forward at the expense of natural materials, this furniture aims to be an ideal element in spaces that bring richness to the everyday living that gives rise to lifestyles.

Art exhibition

Yasuhide Kuge / Mnemosyne

From January 16 until March 13. 
Time & Style Midtown. 
Open from 11:00 to 20:00.  

“Amidst the coronavirus pandemic’s suffocating pressure, the performers revealed moments of physical, creative expression born from a dynamic equilibrium.” 

“I can now switch ideas and techniques to refine my works, so these new photos express certain elements that I was unable to include in my past works.” 
(Yasuhide Kuge) 

A collection of his works, Mnemosyne, is planned for release in 2021. 

Time & Style Midtown will welcome Mr. Yasuhide Kuge and introduce his photographs, focusing on his latest works. As forms of art, fashion, and media expression, Yasuhide Kuge’s pictures carry a unique-yet-congruous aesthetic rooted in deep photographic understanding. 

His works transcend the superficial techniques, experience, or raw ability, bringing a “perspective” specialized for photographic expression that delivers an aesthetic that transcends subjects and mediums. 

Kuge’s photographic works began in the 1990s with behind-the-scenes street shoots. He then went on to use large cameras to produce individualistic forms of print expression and to partner with corporate and media entities (Aliens [Tsuburaya Productions], Absolute Speed [Honda], niwa to sono [AXIS], and others). 

In 2009, he published his photobook Atelier, a collection of artist and dancer atelier (studio) photography. 

In 2020, he announced LA LUZ BROTA (“the light sprouts”), which, amidst the coronavirus pandemic, recaptures past print works in a literary context 

and Ambulant Colors, new video production in his Atelier series. 

Slated for release in 2021, his newest work captures the creative expression moments generated by two performers, Sunayama Norico and Ikemiya Nakao, transforming them into picture form. Do not miss the chance to stop by and see how these works feature in the Time & Style Midtown.
