The Convertible Sofa by Julia Kononenko, an industrial designer based in Kharkiv, Ukraine, is not the typical multifunctional piece of furniture. Instead of simply packing away neatly, converting into a smaller set of seats or even rearranging into a different shape all together, this couch transforms into a dining table. This is perfect for small spaces that cannot accommodate a dining set on a full time basis.
In its more compact form, the Convertible Sofa by Julia Kononenko looks like a plain wooden chest. But when the lid is raised, it reveals lush cushions instead of an empty belly. The cushions can be removed to reveal comfy stools. When shut again, the top of the lid expands out to provide more table space for meals.
