I love multi-functionality–the dining room that also serves as an office and crafts room, the basic black dress that goes from the office to a cocktail party with a change of accessories. Such dual purposes appeal my sense of thrift and efficiency!
So a chest of drawers that converts to a dining room table is a big WOW! How great for that space-starved first apartment!
My friend Andrea Nierenberg featured this on her blog recently. Andrea is not an interior designer, but as the “Queen of Networking” and the author of several books on the subject, Andrea is an outstanding resource for all kinds of useful information. This nifty piece of furniture is aptly called The Manhattan Clam.
Look around your home. What two-fers can you create in your space?
