30 Space-Saving Solutions

From a Room-in-a-Box to Multifunctional Furniture

— June 8, 2009 — Art & Design
Large spaces have become a thing of the past as more and more people opt for the city-dwelling lifestyle. With the rise of small-space living, compact furnishings are sitting on the forefront of home decor.

Check out the slide show below for everything from fold-away kitchens to compact appliances, as well as mini multifunctional rooms.

Implications - The economic recession and ensuing credit crunch caused consumers to increasingly look for products that offer more for less. Designers of space-saving furniture found success within this environment, as these innovations appealed to homeowners and apartment-dwellers alike. Companies can take advantage of this opportunity by strategically designing multifunctional consumer products with a small form factor.
