Let’s be honest: The stress of moving doesn’t stop once you’ve forked over a deposit and packed up your old home. Unless your new space has identical measurements as your old one, you’ll have to scheme up an entirely different layout — and purchase new products to match. Ugh. The good news is it doesn’t have to be that way.

There are plenty of modular furniture pieces that can expand or shrink as your space does.  If you ask us, the concept of modular furniture is pretty brilliant. It’s an easy way to keep your style consistent as you move into a new apartment or home, plus you don’t have to think about buying or selling anything. The best part? They’re also designed to make moving a breeze. Talk about a dream.

Whether you’re looking for easy-to-move couches, storage units, or dining chairs, check out our 10 favorite finds below.

Looking for a traditional couch that’s easy to pack up and move? Give Burrow a try. At first glance, the company’s Nomad sofa looks like any other couch. But in reality? It’s held together by discreet latches. Instead of recreating Friends’ iconic “Pivot” scene, you can unhook the latches and carry down your couch piece by piece. If only Ross knew modular couches existed…

Its freestanding design means that you can easily pair it with other pieces in the collection to create a set that's right for you.

Another winner from Floyd is the Floyd Platform Bed. Thanks to Floyd’s smart platform, you don’t have to buy a new bed frame every time you upgrade mattresses. This mid-century-inspired pick consists of a few movable platforms, so you can easily transform your bed from a twin to a king (and vice versa) making it a piece that's also great to hand down.
