From silicone bottles that roll up for storage to a bookcase that transforms into a table and chairs, we found a little something for everyone, if you’ll pardon the pun.

It’s a Set Up

We’re flipping out over these minimalist tables from the Netherlands. Made from solid steel and wood by Arco, arrange them horizontally when you need a bench or coffee table. If space is limited, flip it vertically and it becomes an end table. Nesting multiples are architecturally pleasing, and when not in use, flip them over on their faces to store blankets or storage bins.

Sleeping in the Clouds

Bedtime is fun time thanks to the Cloud Bed by Lago. Suspended off the ground, kids will love sleeping in their own little loft, and parents will appreciate the storage space underneath. And if you’re really strapped for space, use the top of the Cloud for storing even more.

Lean on Me

The precarious-looking and space-saving Arco Pivot is a solid wood cabinet that was designed with the concept of storing all smaller everyday items in one place. What is unique about the design is that the drawers can hinge so that you can open both drawers at the same time. That way you can easily deposit keys, devices, sunglasses, day planners and mail and then actually know where it is later.

A Step Up

Inspired by florists’ stands that were once found on Italian town squares, the Rampa is one of our favorite multifunctioning pieces in this roundup. The steps, which boast hidden storage, can be used for books or decorative items. On the other side it opens up, revealing a writing desk, two more compartments and six drawers. It’s on casters, and we think it would make a great bar cart.
