To earn a place in today's homes, furniture needs to look good and work overtime. These stylish furniture pieces have multiple uses, can be used in many rooms, have smart storage, and clever functionality. We are all busy multitasking, so our furniture should too. The Console Table:
It makes a great desk (with drawers for office supplies) but its overall slim proportions mean this table works in lots of places. You can station it behind a sofa or in a foyer for a place to store keys and the mail.
The Upholstered Dining Chair:
It's perfect at the dining table, of course, but also at a desk since those office chairs on wheels are usually not so pretty. Or use it in the bedroom if you want a perch for putting on shoes or pull out into the living room when there's a crowd over watching the game.
The TV Mirror
This is the solution if you are against having a TV in the bedroom. The frame holds a mid-size flat-screen TV, and when the TV is turned off, it's a mirror. When it's cleverly camouflaged like this, your TV doesn't have to ruin your decor or take up valuable real estate in your bedroom.
The shelves roll out from behind the headboard to offer storage solutions on both sides of the bed. Keep the bedroom looking neat and tidy by sliding the drawers into the headboard.
The Storage Ottoman
Instead of shoving a bulky file cabinet in your closet, why not park one of these in your living room? It holds standard-size hanging files and just about anything else you can think of. It also has casters on the bottom, making it easy to move around as well provides extra seating. Choose from more than 100 fabrics for this one.
The Storage Cocktail Table
The top slides open so you can get at what's stored inside without disturbing your tabletop display. Keep remotes and TV accessories in the top compartment and board games in the bottom drawer. Or try it at the foot of the bed for sweaters because it is also cedar-lined.
The Storage Cube
These come in six different colors. At 18 inches, they're perfect next to a sofa or chair. Pull four together for a generous coffee table, or stack them into sleek, streamlined towers for showing off your stuff. The simple design and glass top goes with any decorating style.
The Sleeper Sofa
The futon grows up and gets better-looking. This sofa pulls out to become a full-size bed. There are also seven colors of slip covers to choose from. But the coolest part is that the arms zip open to store pillows and bedding, so you're always ready for an overnight guest.
The Dining Table with Storage
If you're one of those people who uses the dining table as a desk, this one's for you. The tabletop slides open to reveal two storage cubbies with dividers. Use one for office supplies and the other for silverware, napkins, and rings. The table's clean lines mean you can pair it with any style of chair.
The Wedge Ottoman
Each person takes a slice of the pie to sit on. Or put them all together and add a big tray for a coffee table that's super practical, especially if it's upholstered in leather or outdoor fabric.
