I’m continuing on with my “Buy Better, Buy Less” theme, because it really pertains to many aspects of city living today. Multi-functional furnishings or multi-use spaces are very relatable concepts these days and while our living spaces decrease (I mean, do you think our grandparents ever imagined 400 sq. foot homes?) our need for savvy, multi-functional solutions increases. How better to “Buy Better and Buy Less,” than to purchase one awesome piece that serves many functions?
It’s no secret that my current (and perhaps all-time) favourite multi-functional items are the Comfort Sleepers from American Leather and the Semblance Modular Units from BDI. Storage space is a huge issue for me so I’m always on the hunt for items with hidden storage space in ottomans, coffee tables or even beds.
The Puzzle Ottoman from Lucy Au, a Canadian company based out of Quebec, is an awesome multi-functional item.
- Move the wood panels around as needed or just to switch it up
- Don’t need the bed? Order with simple storage space!
The Spectra Bed is another great multi-functional piece.
- Leatherette is classy and timeless
- Hidden storage space underneath the bed is perfect for linens, out of season clothing or just that junk you don’t have any other place for…
