Perfect for an office, recreational room, or guest room, a daybed serves as extra seating for guests, but quickly turns into a bed.  All you have to do is rearrange the pillows and bedding and you have room to sleep. Many daybeds have storage as well so you can keep bedding or other items hidden.  


Ottomans with Storage

Ottomans can be used in several different ways.  It can be used as a footrest, extra seating, or as a coffee table.  Ones that also offer storage are a great place to keep blankets, games, or accessories.  Some larger ottomans can even fold out to a twin-sized bed! It really is a versatile piece.

Dining tables with a leaf have been around for a long time, but they are often cumbersome to put in.  And where to do you store them when not in use? The answer to that problem today is an expandable dining table with sides that fold down. Use it as a desk or console when alone, and then simply extend it to create a dining setting.

Nesting End Tables

Nesting end tables include a set of a larger and smaller table. The smaller table discreetly slides under the larger table, creating a cohesive look while also saving space. There are several luxury furniture brands that offer these types of tables.  


Bar Cart

A bar cart offers extra storage to beautifully display alcohol, crystal, and other bar accessories. This is not only a tasteful accent piece, but it helps save space in the kitchen and dining room. Plus, it is easy to move out of the way once you are done with it.


Configurable Sofas

Media Cases

Media cases serve as beautiful displays for your TV and other equipment, but they’re also a classic bookshelf that can be added to any interior design style. If you don’t like the look of clutter, choose a media case with closing doors. This clean look is the perfect storage.
