By Carly Scholl
If you’re strapped for square footage, it may be time to get creative with your furnishings. When it comes to designing a chic and practical home, dual-purpose products and savvy storage solutions are key to avoiding cluttered and cramped living areas. We’ve rounded up our favorite space-saving products that make sure you maximize every last bit of your abode.
In Tune and In Style
The finely crafted Piano wall organizer could stand alone as a decorative art piece, as its functionality is cleverly disguised. Retractable hooks accommodate everything from coats to bath towels to purses and then can be folded flush into the panel for a seamless look. The large size measures 58″H by 32″W by 4″D. If you’re lacking wall space, opt for the small, which is only 58″H by 15.5″W by 4″D. $2,200-$4,800 (resourcefurniture.com)
Whether you don’t have the square footage to accommodate unused seating daily or need a few extras for entertaining, the Flux Envelope folding chair is the solution. Made of durable polypropylene and available in six color options, the comfortable, contemporary chair can be folded flat for easy storage. While it weighs only 11 pounds, it can support up to 353 pounds. $596/four chairs. (expandfurniture.com)

What looks like a compact console can transform into the center of a party with just a few simple alterations.
