It’s super frustrating to find the couch of your dreams, only to measure out your tiny living room and realize it’s not going to fit. We’ve *all* been there. Lucky for you, Pottery Barn’s latest spring 2017 collection features furniture that makes small-space living “size-conscious and multifunctional,” and all at a price point that won’t break the bank. All these cool furniture finds — which range from a sleeper sofa to a coffee table that lifts up for extra storage — are now available at flagship stores and online.
Many of the pieces find a way to help squeeze in storage, but in a totally stylish way. You’ll find storage options that won’t bulk up your room, brilliant ways to hang your clothes and stash shoes when you’re running low on closet space and a kitchen rail system with interchangeable knife blocks, baskets and even an iPad holder. Scroll on to see a few of our faves.
So long, hand-me-down futon — there’s a new kid in town. Pottery Barn’s compact Soma Brade Slope Sleeper Sofa ($119+) easily folds out into a sleeper couch for guests but is still comfortable enough to lounge on during your next Netflix binge, thanks to the double layer of padding that you won’t find on most sleeper sofas.
If you don’t have enough kitchen cabinet space, use the industrial-inspired Rainier Galvanized Storage Cart ($99) to stash plates, cups and serving dishes. The wheels make it easy to move, in case you need to do some quick rearranging before your next dinner party. Don’t need it in the kitchen? Use it as a nightstand or roll it into the bathroom to hold toiletries and extra towels. Speaking of dinner parties — the super slim Alice Gateleg Storage Table ($399) above can be used for dining or for working. Lift up the eaves to create a dining spot for two and tuck baskets into the built-in shelves to store dishware and extra kitchen utensils.
There’s no shortage of storage with these completely customizable Dublin Stackable Shelving Units ($69+). The wire frame feels light and airy so your space won’t seem even more crowded. Plus, you can stack these pieces together as high as you need. Just make sure to use the included hardware to secure the pieces to the wall to avoid any #shelfie mishaps.
