Randy DesRocher volunteers a lot of time building homes for other people, so when it came time to furnish his tiny Miami apartment, he just picked up a hammer. In only 432 square feet, he managed to fit a living room, bedroom and kitchen, each with its own personality. Mirrors in the lounge double the light, and the sofa doubles the storage.
DesRocher didn't need a big, open kitchen, so he turned part of it into a lounge. He built L-shaped benches covered with fabric that have hidden storage underneath. He took two barstools, cut them in half to coffee table height, added tops and arranged them together.
