hether it’s a condo or a more
house, we all expect the
space we have to perform a lot of
functions. One way to ensure that your
home is working both harder and smarter
is to furnish with pieces that serve
Beds with storage
Space is often at a premium in the
bedroom, particularly in older houses
with tiny closets. Opt for a bed with
generous storage and you’ll instantly
free up a swathe of room for clothes,
making you and your partner a little
happier. While some beds feature
drawers and/or hidden panels behind
the headboard, others lift up to reveal
huge storage areas. With this much
under-bed storage, you can stash
bedding, books and out-of-season
clothes where they’re easily accessible
yet totally invisible.
Sofa beds used to get a bad rap; they
were uncomfortable as beds and no
great shakes as sofas, either. But those
days are happily over. Now top designers
and manufacturers are creating sofa
beds that are comfortable, supportive
and good looking . They’re an ideal
solution for small guest rooms, multi-
function spaces and offices.
Ottomans are a welcome addition to
almost any space, from the entry hall
to the bedroom; they look great and are
easily portable. For added convenience,
many ottomans double as storage, with
seats that lift up to reveal a handy spot
for keeping throws or cushions. Built-in
trays are another surprisingly useful
feature — simply flip the seat and you’ve
got a handy substitute for your side table
or coffee table.
Extension tables have been a must-have
for generations, and contemporary
designers are constantly producing
new iterations. They’re perfect for
frequent entertainers and anyone whose
extended family is often in and out.
Contemporary versions are typically
designed without the insertable leaves
that characterized older tables, so
there’s no need to store or fiddle with
Modular seating already offers fantastic
flexibility, and is a great choice for
anyone who likes to rearrange their
space from time to time. And some
contemporary sets offer even more,
with highly adjustable seats that behave
like recliners, letting you adjust your
position as well as your room layout.
Add a swivel chair or two to the mix,
and you’ll be ready to change the
orientation of the whole room at
a moment’s notice.
