Transformer, multifunctional furniture is truly a wonderful invention, especially when it aids the effort of trying to downsize or making the most out of living in small spaces. Itâ€™s also great when it comes to furnishing childrenâ€™s bedroomâ€™s since it adapts to their ever-changing needs as they grow. The so-called Nook Bed, created by Spanish designer Carlos Tiscar is a great example of such a transformer piece of furniture. […]
Living small requires that every piece of furniture performs itâ€™s own function, as well as some extra oneâ€™s besides. Storage is usually the biggest problem, and the Spanish firm PKMN Architectures came up with a unique way to solve this obstacle during the renovation of a small villa in Madrid, Spain. To do so, they designed a series of innovative modular units, which are easily movable and thereby capable of creating entirely flexible living and workspaces.
Former airplane interior designer, Steve Sauer, worked hard to transform a tiny closet space in Seattle into a functional apartment, which is also known as a â€œpico dwelling.â€ The apartment measures only 182 square feet, yet consists of two beds, a full kitchen with a dishwasher, a bathroom with a shower, and a soaking tub set into the floor just inside the front door.
Sauer succeeded in fitting 8 separate and functional spaces into the tiny space, including a cafÃ© area, which is stacked atop a video lounge that is equipped with a 37-inch TV. In a lofted area on one of the walls there is a bedroom that sits atop a walk-in closet that can also double as a home office.
