However, looking closer, you will realise that the coloured gaps in between the shelves can actually be pulled out to form two table and 4 chairs!

When this clever table is not in use, it looks like an ordinary mirror surrounded by a wooden frame hanging on the wall. But in a few steps, it transforms into a fold-away table with legs that snaps into place to support the table when you need it. Add a few chairs and you’ve got yourself a dining table!
If you have a small balcony to spare but do not want to spend much effort cleaning the area or worrying that the rain will spoil the outdoor furniture, then these two designs of compact furniture are just what you need. Both have the similar concept of the seats being hidden away when not in use so that the furniture looks just like a simple uncluttered structure. But when pulled away, reveals 4 seats and a table for a simple chit-chatting session with friends drinking by the balcony, overlooking Singapore’s bustling city lights.
These stairs could be the most space-saving stairs of all time, using just a central pole and spiralling steps to fit a staircase into an unbelievably tight corner, making it a great alternative to a loft ladder. Enabling you to ascend and descend with much ease, especially when your hands are full with carrying laundry or other items. However this is not very suitable for a house with young children but adds a touch of colour and design to an otherwise mundane looking city house.
If you only cook occasionally and do not really need the functions or area of a full-scale kitchen, then this compact kitchen will come in handy, where an entire kitchen is being fit into a piece of furniture roughly the same size as a bedroom dresser. This design is also pretty sleek and minimalist as well. The compact kitchen unit looks like a desk when not in use, but the lid flips up to reveal a sink and two burners. With a drawer-style microwave underneath, a small fridge and even a tiny dishwasher. Definitely more than what you’re bargaining for if you’re living alone or with a partner and usually eat out.
Want to hold an occasional sleepover at your place or to host some guests but do not have an extra room in your house to use as the guest room? With a design that seems to have been inspired by Transformers, you can convert your living room into a guest room with just a swing. Instantly converting your living room sofa into a bunk bed for two. Perfect for kids or just a couple of guests.
