One of the greatest interior design challenge nowadays, I think is cleaver solutions for small places. With so many families or couples living in the city centre in very small apartments, designers are asked to come up with smart ideas to provide the largest amount of storage and a comfortable living for their customers. I personally lived in different European cities and always found very small apartments to share with other tenants. While I was at Salone del Mobile this year, I've seen some incredible solutions that will allow you to save space and decor a small apartment, without giving up a stylish design.
Compact living unit - day version with sofa and desk
Tumidei, a company from Central Italy, from 1958 has been developing incredible compact living solutions together with the distinguishable "Made in Italy" design and quality. These incredible furnitures fit perfectly into a small apartment or a guest room, where you will have desk, wardrobe and a conveniently hidden bed, for visitors.
Here below, the working desk becomes a single bed, perfect for a young child's bedroom. In the pictures below, the red sofa becomes a double bed suitable a young couple living a small city studio without bedroom.
Another company that produces compact living solutions is the Italian CLEI from Como. Their furniture have also very high quality and they are beautifully designed. Here below, the sofa becomes a bed and the desk can go inside and outside the unit. This is perfect for a city apartment or guest room.
