42 Examples of Customizable Seating

From Adaptable Sofa Seats to Modular Beanbag Loungers

— July 29, 2015 — Art & Design
With a greater number of consumers living in small spaces, there is an increasing need to find multifunctional furniture items, such as customizable seating. For those with limited living space, customizable pieces offer a flexible and functional alternative to full-size furniture sets.

Adjustable sofas are one example of customizable seating. These ingenious furniture pieces allow users to maximize the seating capacity of their home simply by changing the size, shape or configuration of their couch. Some of the most interesting examples of customizable seating include shape-shifting sofas, couches with ergonomically adjustable pillows and geometric sectionals.

Beyond sofas, other examples of customizable seating include office and dining room furniture as well. For example, there are button-adjusting seats that can be converted into dining room chairs. There are also yoga-inspired office chairs that allow the user to shift into different postures and poses. These ingenious examples of customizable seating allow consumers to maximize the few furniture pieces they own.
