Contemporary life is a bit of a conundrum. The bad news: as the demands of city life increase, we are also left with smaller and smaller living spaces. The good news: we’ve got just the right things to make the most out of your space so that you can live smart — instead of cramped and stressed. Turn your ‘small’ space into a fun, organised, and surprisingly spacious one with functional and clever pieces from MOs Design.



When space is at a premium, multi-functional is the way to go. Think of furniture double-agents, such as the sofa-by-day, bed-by-night favourite like Natuzzi Italia’s lovely Notturno sofa bed and Arioso armchair-bed. Speaking of beds, what more could you want from the Lugano bed by BoConcept, with its luxurious headboard and generous hidden storage? For the very clever, there’s the completely unassuming Rubi table again from BoConcept—a coffee table that easily converts into a dining table, and then even folds out to make room for more. Who says pretty isn’t useful? Pierre Paulin knew what he was doing back it the `50s with the Daybed. Striking colours à la Mondrian, this small sofa has a built-in coffee table, but can also become a bigger sofa for 3 or 4, or even an auxiliary bed for one simply by moving the cushions around. It’s also in the details, like Ligne Roset’s Judd Patterson by Numéro111 or Vitra’s Corniches by Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec: these seemingly additional aesthetic pieces are actually subtle storage spaces and shelves.



Make more room for yourself by picking compact things that pack a punch: like the Cineline extendable dining table by Pagnon and Pélhaître for Ligne Roset, or the wall-mounted Cupertino desk with fold-up writing surface storage by BoConcept. Don’t forget about lighting: go for smaller but very bright, effective, and still easy on the eyes. Have a shot with the Anglepoise Original 1227 Mini, just a little smaller than the original but just as focused and easy to direct. For mobile, flexible tables we have Jasper Morrison’s NesTable and Rise Table for Vitra, both are quick to move around or adjust the height.

Don’t be limited, make your space perfect for you no matter what the size by living smart. Choose pieces that work for you, instead of the other way around.
