Double-Duty Furniture

In a tiny space double-duty furniture is not only very convenient, but also a necessity. In the past few years designers have been creating some incredible and innovative designs, but multi-purpose furniture is not a new concept by any means. In fact my favorite piece in this selection is the Franklin chair, a chair that folds into a stepladder, which was designed by one of America’s Founding Fathers, Ben Franklin.

Including the Franklin chair, here are my selections for a modern minimalist small-space dream home.

Shown above the jump, from left to right:

  1. Tagei Convertible Coffee Table by Akemi Tanaka
  2. Doc XL, a great small space sofa that converts into an equally small bunk bed.
  3. The Franklin Chair converts into a step-ladder.
  4. Flexy from Calligaris is an adjustable height table: coffee table by day, dining table by night.
  5. Bookseat from Fishbol
  6. Read & Roll by Direnc Demirbas which is really more of a fixture, but still a stylish double-duty item.
