Worse, he needed all of those things, yet his flat had no room for more furniture.

  1. The sexy slot sofas

Have you ever felt the lack of space in your home when guests came home unexpected? It is a common scene when guests or relatives arrive uninformed; we begin to pull stools and chairs to make them comfortable. This assumes a bigger headache after they leave, as everything has to be put back in place just to be pulled out the next time. The Slot Sofa promises to drive a nail in the coffin of this problem. You don’t need to worry about searching and pulling coffee tables and chairs when you have this piece of furniture at home. Designed by Matthew Pauk, the Slot Sofa helps remove clutter and manage space with a hideaway dual ottoman and coffee table.

Tuck the coffee table inside to present yourself with a divider between two seats, perfect for a board game or a game of arm wrestling. Pull it out and there you go! A coffee table is ready along with two cushions, which were secretly tucked under the sofa, to rest your feet on. The cushions are secured magnetically, which avoids sliding off the wooden frame.

  1. Your coffee, your way

Don’t think twice when I say that your coffee table can house an arm-chair as well as a side table. The design of the Coffee Table by Daniel Pearlman can be deceiving. The design looks like a long coffee table. But when the side table and the arm chair are pulled from under the mantle of the table, the trio makes up for a mesmerizing interior. Moreover, the side table also functions as the chest of a drawer. What else can be a better candidate for saving space and yet add beauty to your room?

  1. What’s in a stool?

The answer is, “a lot”. A stool is no longer a boring piece of furniture. What if I told you that your stool can also be a magazine rack? “Un Stool” is a furniture that can take up the form of a magazine rack in the space-saver mode, and can metamorphose into a little table when pulled out.

The exterior is made of eco-plastic and the table is made of sustainable plywood.

  1. Folding Ironing Board

Your husband is waiting for you downstairs for going out to party. He is already fed up of the time that you are taking for your make-up. Minutes later, you hear him blowing the horn of his car in frustration, asking you to hurry up. You have just ironed your pretty black dress. But you cannot leave until you smoothen out all the creases and find yourself perfectly dressed for the party. What do you do? Will you just wear the dress and run? Or will you admire yourself in the mirror, only to fuel your husband’s wrath?

Don’t worry; Aissa Logerot has designed the solution for you. The Folding Iron Board and Mirror helps you to save time by flipping back into a full-length mirror. The board has two faces – one that of an ironing board and the other is that of a mirror. This furniture not only saves space but also removes clutter from your room. What can be a better option than this if you have to perform the tasks of ironing and dressing consecutively and are short of time?
