Your space at school is small, but that doesn't mean you sacrifice style. It doesn't matter that Ashley Goldberg designed these bean bag loungers for Land of Nod kids. If I were off to college, I'd snap this pink pattern up faster than you can say "Back to School." Check out more great, compact pieces below...

A lot of big box store ottomans are flimsy little things, but this upholstered mustard yellow one from Target looks sturdy and stylish. Plus, storage; $34.99

A folding screen with a small footprint that doubles as a room divider and as a storage rack for clothing and accessories. Genius. $249 from CB2.

An upgrade from makeshift sawhorse tables, this cute desk from Walmart combines white metal and wood laminate into a small scale desk with lots of storage options. At $102, the price is right too.

If you have a mattress on the floor as your bed, these stools from Land of Nod are the perfect height for an impromptu nightstand. At $59, they're an affordable pop of color too.

Nesting tables are the things that small space dreams are made of, and these acrylic ones from Wayfair are just the thing. $128 for a set of three.

The KNOPPARP is more than a chair but not quite a full sofa size, and it's perfect to stick at the end of a bed. $119 from IKEA.

At $499 this metal industrial cart from West Elm is on the spend-y side, but you can keep and use it long after your college days are behind you.

This wooden shelf from Urban Outfitters can be laid out horizontally and used as a media cabinet, or stand vertically as a slim bookcase. It's on sale right now for $199.

This twin-size bed can act as a sofa as well as a sleeping spot, with built-in tufted pillows to lean against. $189 from Walmart.

This lucite locker from the Novogratz is a little steep, but it is such a great modern twist on the ol' college classic. Use it as a coffee table and for storing your stuff. $479 from CB2.

A colorful side table, with a much needed drawer, that would work well as a nightstand. $107.99 from Wayfair.
