Where to buy furniture/home accessories online for small spaces?
May 22, 2008 2:14 PM   Subscribe

Furniture for small spaces: Somewhere on the internet, there exists a hip little home furniture/accessories store with products designed specifically for those living in tiny dwellings. Do you know what it is?

I, of course, failed to bookmark it. Thanks in advance.

Two links for the price of one.

Zero-footprint furniture (prototype).

yes, follow TTT's link through to Tiny Living. It's a great store to visit- it's a small hole-in-the-wall to help exemplify the practicality of its wares- and their online store seems to have an even wider selection.

It's not terribly hip, but this store has some nice, smaller scale furniture.

To echo TryTheTilapia, the Apartment Therapy blog covers home design, organization, furnishings, etc. with a bias toward small dwellings. (If you ask me, though, there's also a bias towards large budgets.)

Maybe you're thinking of Tiny Living?

A few more possibilities: Del-Teet, UrbanaRue, and Rowe Furniture's MiniMod.

Room and Board seems to have a lot of smaller scale sofas and chairs. I know this because I love their stuff but have been looking (with frustration) for larger-scale pieces.

I really wish there was someone out there designing furniture that took advantage of taller ceilings. I've lived in some pretty cramped apartments in my time, and I could never understand why it was impossible to find a desk with a hutch that went up 7' with shelves built into it. I mean, that's just a no-brainer! All that dead space above short bookshelves, short desks, etc. -- it's crazy. And a lot of leases forbid adding things like shelves, so if it can't be done with furniture, it can't be done. All I see out there these days are ugly shelving "systems" that don't amount to much more than some metal tubes and a couple of flat boards that look like they belong in a workshop, not a living room.

Tiny Living was the place I was thinking of. Thanks for all the other suggestions, too!
