The ultimate in visual and structural simplicity, the form of his combined home desk and shelving design by MisoSoup is composed of a single strip of curved wood that wraps up to become as much a work of minimalist wall art as it is a multifunctional work station with useful space-saving storage lofted above. Like a shelving units or other storage systems, this combined furniture is designed to sit flush against the surface of the wall making it fit well wherever it works within a bedroom, living room or office layout. However, getting such a long and awkwardly shaped wood structure into a small space in the first place might be a difficult trick (perhaps the next move is to make it convert or come apart in a few places.
Much of the language we humans use goes unspoken – a hand gesture here and a facial expression there. Cute and quaint, this seating series uses recognizable gestures to evoke simple emotions, making us ‘feel’ as if the furniture is somehow abstractly alive.
Office storage is often lacking in style and hardly ever interesting, but the Strates System from Mathieu Lehanneur solves both of these problems while creating a scalable, modular, ultra-modern system of office furniture. Strates incorporates nesting modules that form slick desks + shelving in whatever size and configuration best fits your particular working space.
What six-year-old children don’t dream of something this spectacular? A space ship theme was considered, as were race cars and medieval castles … but with pirates you can never go wrong, right? Argh!!!
One of the oldest space-saving storage tricks in the interior design handbook involves making use of that leftover area underneath the stairs , the awkward extra space that does not always lend itself to cheap or easy storage solutions.

While not a new idea, turning stairs into drawers is a relatively simple way to get easily-accessible storage space out of a staircase.
When is a bench not a bench ? When it’s a chair as well – and a comfy-looking lounge chair at that.
Wooden roll-top desks are clever classics that depend on segmented wood slats to close and open without sacrificing classy curves.
So they may not be precisely secret upon close inspection or serious reflection, but at first glance who would suspect a stack of two-by-fours to have a concealed set of doors or drawers?
You may remember these bold bookshelves by Olivier Dolle - taking the art of organic abstraction to the next level, here are a series of black tables with natural wood inclusions likewise shaped like trees. From a distance, they look continuous – up close, the grain reveals cuts between pieces, sanded smooth and finished to avoid any gaps.
The effect is subtle, at first – one could almost miss the writing on the wall, particularly once it is piled with stacks and rows of colorful books.
Love it or hate it, transforming furniture is a trend that is increasingly difficult to ignore.
There are a lot of ways to make a nice bedroom, but for kids there is an element of excitement that is just as important as bedroom size and style.
