by Jillian CariolaPublished: August 15, 2017Updated: August 16, 2017

Morph your small, cramped home into a space-savvy dwelling with some of the coolest transforming furniture in the market.

For many people used to moving about in large homes, making the sudden change to a scaled-down dwelling would be quite the adjustment, since living in a small condo or tiny house means sacrificing on livable space. But as the saying goes, “necessity is the mother of invention,” a statement fully embraced by the brilliant minds behind these pieces of space-saving transforming furniture. Some of these pieces are found in various other countries, while others are readily available right here in the Philippines. Splurge on these transforming furniture now and turn your small house or unit into a space-savvy home.

 

Grandis Modular Sofabed

Sold by local foam and mattress manufacturer and distributor Uratex, the Grandis Modular Sofabed is a multipurpose seating system that aims to increase options for comfortable seating without taking up a large amount of space. The larger piece, which may seem like a simple sofa, can be transformed into a chaise lounge and a sofa bed. A separate lightweight ottoman can be used alone as another seat or an accent table. Putting the two pieces together in certain combinations can form a chaise lounge, a bench, or a bed.

KEWB

Created by UK furniture company Sit and Sleep, the KEWB starts out as an unassuming block-shaped table, but it can be unpacked and transformed into various forms of seating. For watching TV after a day at work, turn it into a full-size chair with an adjustable backrest and coffee table. Having friends over for game night? Turn it into a high or low table with three floor cushions for seats and a side table with a shelf. Unwind with a good book by lying back on a recliner with a drinks table. For a good night’s sleep, stretch it out into a single bed with a bedside surface.

Sofa Bunk Bed

If you live far from your family and you’d like them to be able to stay at your place but can’t figure out the sleeping arrangement, how convenient would it be to have a sofa bed? While the idea of a couch that transforms into a bed is not new, what is novel is having one that becomes a bunk bed. And even further than that, how about a sofa that actually contains three beds?

Mirror Table

For condo units where space is a scarce luxury, you will need all of the square meters you can get, which makes Mirror Table a good replacement to the traditional dining table. Designed by Austrian artist Verena Lang, this piece of furniture functions as both a mirror and a table. One edge of the table is affixed to the wall and the other—where two foldable table legs are attached—is held up with a latch, displaying a mirror on its underside. Come dinner time, the table can be easily unfolded into a table that fits five, and folded back up against the wall when you’re done.

Flexible Love

In a home that always ends up as everyone’s hangout, one can never have too many chairs, but how about one that also doubles as a conversation starter? Flexible Love begins as a small good-for-one chair that extends, twists, and turns to accommodate you and your friends.

Jack ottoman

In the arena of space-saving furniture, ottomans have always been appreciated for providing both seating and additional storage. But not a lot of them offer bedding, like the Jack ottoman. Developed by Resource Furniture, Jack is first a plush bench, but turn the top cushion over to reveal a smooth wooden surface and you have a coffee table. And the transformation doesn’t end there; the ottoman also opens up to a cushioned foldout bed good for overnight guests.

Norden Gateleg Table

Ikea, one of the biggest names in furniture, is the brain behind the Norden Gateleg Table, a nifty piece that combines a table and storage. In its most compact form, it can be used as a console table. Drop-leaves on either side can open and stay propped up by unfolding the gatelegs, turning it into a dining table for four. It also has a total of six drawers for storage.

Matroshka Furniture AB

Matroshka is the granddaddy of all transforming furniture; save for the kitchen, it basically has all you need to furnish an entire home. Conceptualized by Swedish company Matroshka Furniture AB, this amazing piece is based on Russian nesting dolls in that it combines four rooms in one compact 15-square-meter set. Starting out as a raised study with a bench, pulling and opening certain parts converts it into a dining set for six, a living room that can fit up to eight, and a king-sized bed.
