It has been decades now since space-saving furniture modules have evolved - right from the old trunks that used to be carried everywhere for their utilitarian value and conveniently converted into a bed, when a palliasse was placed over it; to the present day camouflaged furniture items that serve multiple purposes as storage and embellishing elements at the same time.
The principle factor that generally seems to direct furniture options in any space-planning scheme is the basic style of the décor and the ambience it purports to create. However, talking about the ‘looks-like-what-it-really-isn’t’ kind of systems, we reflect on the vertical foldaway beds, beds that double up as deeply cushioned sofas during the day, fold-away-and-out ironing platforms, dining tables, deceptively comfortable reclining chairs and the like.
Various space-saving devices and hardware are continually being incorporated into table fittings, cabinets, bars, TV and display units, and electronically operated reclining chairs that almost open out into a bed. While the varied range of camouflaged furniture is suited to the design of smaller spaces, dummy columns constructed purely for embellishing purposes and wood cladding on unsightly load-bearing protrusions in a room, make for ingenious use of space with enclosed shelves of varying heights right up to the ceiling. This also applies to various corners, unsightly niches or under the stairway.
Characterized by a freedom of expression, ingenuity in hardware has given rise to a variety of space-saving furniture that fulfills the need for a complete living experience; yet can be done away with to adapt to the needs of our contemporary lifestyles.
