We loved John and Tup's Studio Loft for it's spareness, and we think it lost votes because it was TOO spare for most people. Okay. Still you have to appreciate the fine details such as this swing-out dining table in the kitchen.
Sliding out like the blade of a Swiss Army knife, this simple design is a great solution for a small kitchen or office where you might just want to expand your surface area temporarily. (Thanks, John & Tup!)
