Apartment Essentials: Furniture For Smaller Spaces
In a compact space, choosing the right furniture can make all the difference between your home feeling cramped or comfortable. From practically lucent coffee tables to shelving that merges with the needs of your space, these 8 @home items should be on any small spaces list:
Round Dining Table
The Tress Round Dining Table with slender legs not only tucks into small spaces with ease but is budget-friendly too. A round table means no bumping into sharp corners, and the thin legs makes it easier to squeeze one more friend around the table.
Instead of choosing the largest possible shelving unit that will fit your space, consider picking up a few floating shelves and arranging them decoratively on your wall to store your items. Add a few fun items from the @home curious collection to complete the look.
Just because you don’t have room for bulky armchairs and a giant sofa doesn’t mean you won’t have a need for ample seating. One solution is stools, not only are they great to accompany your kitchen nook but are useful for when extra guests pop by and you require additional seating. The Camilla Nook stool is ideal, with its low back its perfect for tucking in under your nook and freeing up more space.
If you’re going to buy only a few items to make the most of your small space, a great, big mirror should definitely top the list. Hanging a large mirror instantly makes a small room feel bigger and brighter. Position it across from a window to really maximise this trick. The @home Peruvian Mirror is a stylish statement piece but for those on a budget pick two or three simple mirrors and hang them side by side.
Bulky armchairs may be cosy, but they also take up a ton of floor space. In a compact living room, you can pack more seating into the available space by choosing armless chairs, or armchairs with an upright profile like the Jonathan Occasional velvet chair. And if you move into a larger space in the future, a pair of small-scale armchairs can round out a larger seating arrangement or sit side by side a console table in a spacious entry hall.
The petite Chloe bench makes for comfortable seating and gives you a place to stretch out when on your own, without the bulk of a full-size sofa. In a larger space, a bench can also work at the foot of a bed, in the entry or even pulled up to a dining table.
Lucent Coffee Table
Like an invisibility cloak for your furniture, the Lucent Coffee Table is an excellent choice for small spaces. The beautifully elegant table gives the feeling of more space while highlighting what you place on it.
Ottomans and Stools.
Whether you choose a luxurious velvet, or natural linen ottomans and stools are a must for any small home. Use them as footstools, extra seats or side tables.
