Castlery is peppered with sleek and functional designs that don’t clutter the space. Chairs, stools and tables in ultra-modern silhouettes and neutral hues create the illusion of a spacious pad.

Modular sofa sets that can be rearranged to accommodate multiple room layouts are perfect when you find yourself tight on space.
Mobile and re-configurable furniture
The furniture and furnishings from Danish Design is economical in every sense of the word. Furnishing modern design classics that are time-proven and built to last, there’s really no questioning the Danish design ethos of quality and comfort. Fully modular sofas and mobile furniture are space savvy and can easily be converted into many different uses. The famed Royal shelving system designed by legendary Danish designer Poul Cadocius allows shelving units to be reconfigured in a multitude of ways. Its signature sleek profile and clean-cut hardware makes it a great enhancement to the home.
Spare and simple teak furniture designs
Sure, dense teak furniture may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you’re searching for furniture that scrimps on square footage but Ethnicraft’s spare and simple designs visually open up the space to create the illusion of a bigger interior. Contemporary and eco-friendly designs take centre-stage here with FSC-certified (Forest Stewardship Council) teak wood furniture that is both durable and sustainable. The Kubus Naomi side table boasts style and functionality with a built-in magazine rack for additional storage whilst boxy wall racks utilize vertical space in the home.

Ingenious space-saving solutions

Spaceman is the ultimate space-saving destination in our arsenal. With beds that seemingly disappear into walls and transformer-esque furniture, some might even call it outrageous… We throw the spotlight on to the Slumbershelf – essentially a wall-mounted folding bed and a shelf rack fitted into one compact contraption and the Boxster – a coffee table and dining table rolled into one sharp looking piece. With so much visual trickery up their sleeves, there isn’t a better way to combat shoebox living and to maximize your space.
