American retailers have started to climb aboard the small space wagon these days (
DWR,
C&B,
West Elm, and
Pottery Barn all now have small-scale lines or categories, at leat in their printed catalogues). But in Europe they’ve been working the small space challenge for several centuries, and so many of the best solutions hail from those far shores.

With this in mind we’re rounding up the best of Swede giant Ikea’s small space solutions, starting with the bedroom.

Pictured at top, the new Malm Queen Bed with “Vanishing” Headboard shelves, $189. The headboard unit contains two banks of retracting shelves. A nifty trick for hiding visual clutter, though the unit does still occupy some floorsplace, behind the bed.
