Functional Furniture For Apartment Living

Functional Furniture For Apartment Living

Living in an apartment often means making the most out of a smaller space. Selecting key pieces that are functional and multipurpose is an easy way to optimise your space, and doesn't mean you have to compromise on aesthetics.

The art of balancing form and function can be a tricky one to navigate, so we’ve pulled together three functional furniture pieces that are absolute must-haves for apartment living. 

Extendable Dining Tables

When you live in an apartment, hosting a big dinner party might seem like a dream reserved for those with spacious dining rooms. Enter the extendable dining table, a versatile piece that has extra panels (or leaves) that can be inserted or removed to customise the length and adapt to your needs. For smaller, tight dining spaces, the dimensions of the table can be customised to the size of a regular table, and when you have guests over, you can utilise the full length of the extendable table.

The Casablanca Extendable Dining Table testament to the idea that one doesn’t have to sacrifice style for space-saving utility. With the capability to extend from 200cm to 250cm, it caters to both everyday use and special occasions. Its striking design features curved, slatted legs that make a bold design statement in any dining space.


Coffee Tables with Storage

The coffee table is often the focal point of a living room. But beyond aesthetics, a coffee table with built-in storage is a practical solution for apartment living. These tables offer hidden compartments or shelves for storing books, remote controls, or even small electronic devices, helping to keep your living area tidy and organized.

The Noir Round Storage Coffee Table is a prime example of stylish, functional furniture, which stands out with its timber panelling and curved edges. The natural oak colouring and round shape make a strong impact in contemporary living rooms. Its practical door opens to reveal ample storage space, ideal for hiding away pillows or other living room essentials.


Ottomans are the unsung heroes of functional furniture. Beyond being a stylish accent in any space, these versatile pieces are adaptable to your needs and are perfect to be used as extra seating, a comfy footrest, or even as a side or coffee table.

For a blend of comfort and style, the Juliette Boucle Ottoman is an ideal choice. The simple contemporary design will bring an elegant textured touch to your interiors with its tactile boucle fabric and curved form. More than just a piece of furniture, Juliet is a multi-purpose accessory that elevates the functionality and aesthetic appeal of your living or lounge room.


Remember, your furniture choices can have a big impact on the functionality and aesthetics of your apartment. Choose your pieces wisely and create the perfect balance in your space.
