Small Space Living – Clever Everyday Furniture Solutions
Continuing with my ‘Small Space Living’ series, today’s post offers some help with furniture solutions for those seeking some inspiration. And, I hasten to add, this post is not just for small spaces. Why I hear you ask? Purely because there are some very clever furniture designs out there, and you may just feel compelled to find a place for them in your own home.
Ready to enjoy and appreciate some clever furniture design? Let’s go……
Embrace Magazine Rack (John Green, York, UK)
Clever and simple in its form, I am in love with the Embrace Magazine Rack from John Green. It is an award-winning piece of furniture design and its name really doesn’t do it justice. It is actually so much more than a solution to storage. Two low modern tables that when put together, ’embrace’ each other. When apart, it provides different functionalities, such as a laptop table, a bench and desk. If space is really tight and there’s no room for a dining table, you can use one of the tables as a serving tray………. breakfast in bed anybody?
Good to Know: The Embrace Magazine Rack: Each unit is numbered, stamped and signed upon completion: Materials Bent plywood, available in Birch, Oak and Walnut: Dimensions H.375 W.850 D.350
Hay Tray Table
Grid Daybed from POOL Design Studio
Revolve by Lincoln Rivers from Wireworks
I love this revolving wall unit by Lincoln Rivers from Wireworks. It is designed for bathroom spaces, but think it could work well in other spaces such as the bedroom or if you are lucky to have one, a dressing room. One of the reasons I am attracted to this design is that it keeps your spaces clutter free as everything is hidden at a gentle push. Trying to keep a small space visually and physically clear of clutter is hard, especially as we tend to own so much these days. The bonus with this piece is that it is made from bamboo which is a sustainable material so its great for our environment!
Good To Know: Colour: Brown, Depth 18cm, Height 140cm, Width 28cm, Material: Bamboo & glass
Big: Ledge Shelf By Anne Linde, Copenhagen, Denmark
A little shelf that has big potential for small space living. I’m loving this simple shelf design that can be utilised just about anywhere you need to display and store your bits on whether it’s the kitchen, hallway or as shown here as a bedside shelf. Again using the vertical as opposed to floor space is ideal for the smaller bedroom and would look great with a hanging pendant or wall light above it.
Good to Know: Available in Black, White and Brown. Made from powder-coated steel for durability, Height: 33cm Diameter: 22cm, Width 34.5cm
That is all for me today, but be sure to check back next week for some more inspiration!
Have a great weekend wherever you are!
In a world where houses/flats/apartments seem to be getting smaller, getting the furniture right and being able to fit it all in can be a battle!! Great read Maria…keep them coming :) x
So true Amanda small spaces can be more complex to get right. Thanks for your lovely comments and heres hoping others feel the same! :D x
While I love all of these designs, the first table I definitely my favorite! With my work at Jarrimber, practicality is always something we try to incorporate into each design.
It’s a great versatile table Todd, and its good to hear that your designs are being thought out with usability in mind. I’ll have to head over and have a look at your work :D
