The pandemic has forced many to not only treat our homes as places to rest, but also as places to work and study. With so many changes in the new normal, it’s been hard to adapt our living spaces. MUJI’s new furniture collection can help you get a leg up (quite literally).

The Japanese lifestyle brand’s new furniture series is its first in 11 years, and it features versatile items—namely, a bed, a sofa, and a table—that can change sizes to cope with evolving home arrangements.

The legs of each product can be unscrewed and replaced with a different-sized leg, so you can free up vertical space and add shelves above or squeeze storage containers below to help organize all that stuff your family had brought home from the office and school. For the bed and sofa, leg sizes range between 5 cm (about 2 inches) and 26cm (10 inches), and the table’s legs can measure up to 72 cm (28 inches).

The line is minimal in style, and also in price. The bed frame sans mattress is 46,800 yen (about $449), the table 49,900 yen ($478), and the sofa 79,800 yen ($765). According to MUJI, the collection is sustainable, as versatility helps prolongs the lifespan of each item, further reducing waste. The company’s minimalist aesthetic also makes sure the furniture will never go out of style.

MUJI’s new furniture collection debuted on Nov. 13 in Japan. No word when it will be available in other countries.
