Having 650 sq. ft. or less to work with can be absolutely daunting…or it can be a time to be incredibly creative and innovative! Our theory is small living doesn’t have to mean sacrificing luxury – the key is to find pieces that are aesthetically pleasing, serve numerous purposes, and are spatially savvy. Without further ado, here are our top five must-have pieces of furniture for studios, small apartments, and lofts!
For those who need a home office but fear they don’t have the space, we introduce you to the BDI wall desk. With overall dimensions of 23″ h x 45″ w x 20″ d, the BDI Wall Desk can be positioned at any height and securely attaches to the wall with a simple mounting bracket. Complete with a multi-function keyboard/storage drawer, this little beauty gives you the convenience of a comfortable, modern at-home working environment while saving you floor space.
Let’s face it choosing between having either a sofa or a bed is choosing between a rock and hard place. But now you can have your cake and eat it too! The American Leather Comfort Sleeper® is available in 15 styles, each with its own unique personality. Choose from a variety of designs, from classic rolled arms with nail head trim options to modern high-leg designs scaled perfectly for even the most space-challenged settings. All American Leather Sleeper Sofa mattresses offer a full 80″ in length of sleeping surface, yet they take up less total floor area than conventional sleepers (whose mattresses are only 70-75″ in length) because their patented sleep system extends from within the seat back of the sofa.
P.S. The American Leather Sleeper Sofas are $300 off now (3/11/17) through 4/4/17!
Making the most out of your space is all about finding pieces that can serve multiple purposes so as to condense the amount of furniture within the area for a less cramped environment. The Natuzzi Editions Alberobello Coffee Table serves as a typical coffee table, but also opens and extends – perfect for working and dining!
The Skovby Round Expanding Table is the perfect fit for apartments, smaller dining spaces, breakfast nooks, four person families, and “lovers of clever contraptions”! With the turn of a lever, the top splits into three sections, which move apart and make room for three leaves that rest within the base when not in use. A little light pressure, and the leaves are released to join the sections of the table. Expanding from 4 to 6 dining spaces is as easy as turn, push, squeeze.
Where other extension tables require spare leaf storage or cumbersome expanding processes, the SM 32 is easy as can be. The leaves store in the base, the table pushes apart with a quick lever turn, and the leaves fall into place with a gentle push. This is what modern tables are supposed to be.
Save floor and closet space with elegant storage. The attractive Eileen leaning shelf looks great alone or when combined in groups to create a complete wall system. The shelf rests securely against the wall and its tempered grey tinted shelves are perfect for books or displaying your favorite items. Available in three finishes, all with grey tinted glass shelves. Tempered glass shelves will hold up to 50lbs.
