Multi-functional furniture is one of the easiest ways to make the most of the space in your home. You might already have a sofa-bed or a coffee table that can be used as extra dining space in a pinch, but what about furniture pieces that have 3 or more uses?
It might sound too good to be true, but it isn't. People are starting to realize the benefit of home furnishings that have multiple uses, and it's given birth to a whole new kind of furniture. These 7 pieces of furniture might be just the thing your tiny home needs; they can all function in at least 3 different ways!
1. Coffee Table + Chair + Side Table
This stylish coffee table designed by Daniel Pearlman can function as three separate pieces of furniture or just one. When not needed, the chair and side table can be tucked neatly under the coffee table, saving a ton of space!
2. Chair + Side Table + Bookshelf
The OpenBook Lounge Chair by Studio Tilt is a cozy miniature home library that gives you everything you need to curl up with good book and a cup of tea. In addition to the built-in shelves and side table, it features a cubicle-like wall that shuts out the world and lets you focus on the task at hand.
3. Bed + Desk + Bookshelf
This clever spin on the classic murphy bed functions as a desk in the daytime and a comfy bed when it's time to sleep. Plus, it has a built-in bookshelf to store all your reading material! You can purchase it from SmartBeds.
4. Coffee Table + Desk + Storage
This is the ideal coffee table for people who work from home or spend a lot of time on the computer; it can pop open to function as a desk when needed. Made in Italy by Arredatutto, it also features a storage space that's perfect for keeping books, work supplies, or TV remotes.
5. Side Table + Chair + Coffee Table + Lounge Chair + Bed
A new take on the sofa bed, the unique Kewb design by Sit and Sleep can transform from a compact table into a full size chair with a coffee table and then into a comfy single bed. In a pinch, when the Kewb is being used as a table you can even place the cushions on the floor for extra seating!
6. Desk + Dinner Table + Loveseat
If you live in a small space, you might have had to make the choice between having a dining room table or a loveseat. The Bada table by Ecosystems eliminates this problem! It works as a desk, can be extended into a dining room table, and then easily converts into a comfortable loveseat when it's time to curl up and watch a movie.
7. Bed + Desk + Couch + Drawers
Created by French design student Fanny Adam, this clever sofa functions as a bed, a couch, and a table or desk. As a bonus, it also features a set of drawers that can be used to store extra bedding for when guests spend the night. Unlike other convertible sofas, it actually works as a couch and a desk at the same time, so there will never be any arguments about who gets to use it!
