Having battled the horrors of small space living for many years, I'm constantly on the lookout for furniture pieces that can perform more than one function. That's why I was blown away when I came across this simple and effective design that debuted at Germany's Imm Cologne furnishings fair this past month.
Whether you toss your sweater on the couch, leave your laptop on the night stand or throw your towel over the door, different parts of your living space inevitably collide in a way that can create mess and confusion. Beaugars, designed by Meike Langer, alleviates this by providing a basic and attractive go-to unit with a versatility that is able to meet many needs. A perfect option for studio-living in which space is limited or an entryway where daily essentials are always coming and going, Beaugars' function lies in the austerely simple configuration of two lightweight metal arcs that rotate around a small wooden table. As easy to use as it is on the eyes, Beaugars is a great option for those seeking simplified living, and a fine example of furniture that thinks outside the box.
