25 Two-in-One Home Furnishings

These Multipurpose Designs Maximize the Potential for Small Spaces

— April 14, 2017 — Art & Design
When living in a small space, it is essential to make the most of what little room is available by investing in multipurpose designs.

Some of the best examples of two-in-one home furnishing designs include floor mats that turn into desk-like spaces for study, the Stephen Kenn x Victorinox Stepladder Chair or even something as small as EYKING's tealight holders, which double as napkin rings.

IKEA's 2017 PS Collection was specifically designed with young urbanites and small living spaces in mind. This line includes a stunning range of two-in-one designs, such as the Lounging Vest, which is described as "a new kind of throw that you can also wear." Similarly, Pottery Barn's Small Spaces collection is made up of dining table-desks and couches with built-in storage compartments.
