Multifunctional furniture is often very practical, and it also needs to be ingenuous to work well. In this post I share some of the coolest furniture that can serve multiple purposes.

1. The Flop armchair

Armchair or bed, you decide. A perfect furniture for people who frequently have visitors. Designed by Elena Sidorova.

4. The sunflower chair

A great chair that also serves as a library. Even better, it doesn’t only look good, it also looks quite comfortable.

5. Work + Play

Work from home without turning your house or appartment in an office. A great concept by Gruber + Schlager.

6. Multi-functional Furniture for Kids

The Multi-functional Furniture by Adensen Furniture is rightly something every parent has dreamed of. Especially designed for kids up to 10 years old, the smart furniture could be changed into a crib, a table, storage drawers, shelves, and a bigger bed, etc.
