An alleged minimalist, Joel Smith, has refuted claims that his home style is 'lazy', even though he has not furnished his home that he moved into 15 weeks ago. Mr Smith's friends and family have stated that he is a 'big-time couch potato' and 'definitely way too lazy to find furniture to suit his style', arguing that a minimalist would probably put more effort into their home than others. Mr Smith spoke to us: 'It's minimalistic! Why would I need a three-seater couch, when I can only sit in one seat at a time? I don't need heaps of furniture'. Experts expect it to take a few more weeks for Mr Smith to convert from minimalist (lazy) to maximalist (hoarder).
