The Importance of Form + Function

The Importance of Form + Function

Since space is limited in a smaller homes and apartments, being creative and making the most out of your furniture and decor is important. We wanted to know how many of you...

...consider both the form and function of items in your home? How you use your furniture and how it looks. We bought the chair and ottoman set (pictured) because we loved the look and we knew the ottoman could double as a chair for extra guests or a side table by placing a tray on top. Now our one furniture set works three ways. Last week, we posted about our friend who bought a lamp on style alone, only for it to be sitting in storage until her design style changes. We have another friend who only buys things that she knows she will use right then and there in her home, foregoing an item that may appeal to her in just style. Share with us how you consider items for your home.
