As the number of city-dwellers faced with small living spaces increases, so does the demand for space saver furniture. A number of furniture designers and retailers have caught on to this idea, including IKEA, Habitat and Dwell but who is producing the best products at a price we can all afford?
We have often found that contemporary furniture designed for small spaces is either prohibitively expensive or cheap and badly designed or put together.
So who is making affordable but high quality space saving furniture?
Contemporary space saving furniture
IKEA recently launched a limited-edition collection for 2014 aimed at young, creative city types faced with small living spaces and uncertain rental terms.
The On the Move collection has been inspired by Ikea-commissioned research, which found that one in five city dwellers now lives in a house or apartment smaller than 30 square metres. We know how they feel!
They’ve got plenty of tips and ideas to help you (and us) make the most of those small or awkward spaces. You can read more about their 51-piece On the Move collection in this section. Read more.
Compact living solutions
The brand Bonbon has become synonymous with compact living solutions and we’re a huge fan of their storage beds. Later this month we’ll be delving deeper into their space saver furniture options.
Space saving kitchen ideas
Habitat’s fitted kitchens always leave us drooling. Habitat kitchens are available in a wide choice of materials, colours and finishes, combining functionality and durability with a really distinctive and contemporary feel. Some of their innovative space saving kitchen bars (they actually pull out of a drawer!) and pull out pantries are must-haves for small kitchens.
And that’s just the beginning. Check out the rest of our space saving kitchen ideas.
We’ll be back soon,
