More Than Meets the Eye: Transform Your Ideas about Adjustable Furniture
Why invest in custom adjustable furniture? You can use space more efficiently in a small home or room, and your pieces can be constructed to dismantle and transport easily when you relocate. We’ve previously discussed some of the advantages of adjustable furniture, and a term like “efficiency” sounds objective enough not to merit too much introspection, but furniture, like fiction, sometimes slips too easily into genres. Reclaimed wood furniture, for example, can be built to fit any style but is frequently associated with stereotyped rustic or “eco” looks. Adjustable furniture, precisely because functionality is one of its key characteristics, is often linked to sleek, futuristic styles.
When you work with a CustomMade artisan, your adjustable furniture will bring efficiency into your home in any style you prefer. And if you need another reason to go custom, your adjustable furniture can add dramatic flair to any room. Transformation is not just about efficiency. It can also be spectacular.
The venerable Murphy bed has enjoyed renewed popularity. This hidden bed design by Salon Interiors takes the classic space saving concept and turns it on its side. When the bed is lowered, the desk becomes a storage bay. When the bed is raised, the storage bay becomes a desk again. A companion drawer cabinet can be rolled under the desk or kept apart as needed.
Check out this video to see this cool transformation in action.
