Want to get two for the price (and space) of one? We can help. These small homes all squeezed extra function out of some strategic pieces of furniture. Here's what they did that you can do, too.
A more functional console
This great idea, spotted on Tages Anzeiger, shows that a console can do more than provide a surface, it can give you extra shelving too.
Dressers as bedside tables
In a small space like Kay's NYC studio, you have to combine all you can — like these small dressers standing in for bedside tables.

A desk built into a bookshelf
