Almost everyone goes crazy whenever they enter an IKEA branch; and some of the first things they snap up are the pillows, dinnerware, and tiny decorative accessories. The popular furniture brand is known for these, but IKEA carries many versatile and well-designed furniture pieces for small spaces. Here are some of the best:

A drop-leaf coffee table: because, why not?

Drop-leaf dining tables are essential pieces for small homes, so IKEA created a coffee table version with the Arkelstorp coffee table. It forms a neat cube with storage underneath for magazines when the leaves are dropped (also making this an ideal side table), but when guests come over, pull up the leaves and you've got a full-size, oval center table.

This has to be one of the best, tiny-space dining tables you'll see; and even if you don't have a dining area in your studio unit, this table is the dining area. The Norberg Wall-Mount Drop-Leaf Dining Table is installed on the wall, and pulls up to seat two (or three). Once you're done eating, drop it down flush to the wall, and your dining area is gone!

A slim dining table that plays hide-and-seek


IKEA's PS 2017 collection is fun, trendy, pop-py, with tinges of 1980s Memphis Design influences. But the PS pieces have some brilliant storage solutions, such as the sleek PS 2014 Dining Table, which is made of solid pine. There are aqua-colored, slim drawers hidden underneath the tabletop to hide your placemats, utensils, or a pack of after-dinner cigarettes.

Play wheelies with this versatile cart


Almost every hipster home worth its salt has the Raskog Utility Cart, but it's not just a bar cart. You can use it as a storage unit for your kitchen, and you can wheel it wherever you're doing your cook prep. Other uses: a moveable toy bin, living room side table, toiletries catchall in the bathroom.

The best customize-able shelves, ever


Sometimes the best solution is usually the simplest, and this rings true with the Algot shelving system. You can mount these as open shelves, or as a storage system in a closet or pantry. The different sizes make it right for the tightest spaces.

Lofty dreams


We've been seeing the simplest loft beds in IKEA since the 1980s, and each design is always efficient. The no-frills design of the Stora Loft Bed Frame is perfect, because you can customize the bottom part to become a study area, closet space, lounge area, or another sleeping area.
