The Coathander Chair by Jörg Gätjens capitalizes on the growing demand for small-space living designs. I have to get me one of these! It's a chair, valet and bedside table. There's a box underneath the seat where you can hide more junk.

Implications - In rapidly growing cities, apartments have become essential living spaces to accommodate the space constraints of cramped, urban areas. The lack of space in small rooms can often be a problem, so furniture companies are developing pieces that are compact while providing more storage space. As household products become more space-friendly and multi-functional, living in small spaces will become easier for city-dwellers.
