6 Essential Furniture for Condo Dwellers
Read this before you go furniture shopping!
You've just moved in. Although your new condo may look wide and spacious for now, it will have an entirely different feel once the furniture start coming in. We've listed down some space-saving and convertible furniture to solve your small-space dilemmas.
Most condo owners, especially of a studio unit, purchase a sofa bed (like the VIENNA) because of its dual function as a couch and as a bed. There's a variety of designs and sizes of sofa beds to suit your interiors.
For those who share a flat or have kids, getting a trundle bed (like the ELAN) is the best way to go. You only have to pull out the second mattress during bedtime, and the kids can use the space as play area during the day.
Keep books, magazines, remote controls, and gadget cables in the hidden storage of this center table (DALTON). You can also convert this coffee table into a worktable and an additional dining table for guests when you throw a party.
Choose chairs (like the KIAN ASPEN) that are easy to clean and lightweight so they can be easily transferred to other areas of the house when needed.

The Scandinavian look will never go out of style especially in small places. The key is to stick to a neutral color scheme and then pair it with elements such as chairs in bold colors. This dining table set (VIENNA) is lightweight and affordable but sturdily built.
Not enough space for this one? Think again. An hourglass-shaped table like this (VIENNA) adds visual interest to a space and has no sharp edges, making it kid-friendly, too.
Whether you live independently or with other people, there's definitely a way to thoroughly maximize your area without sacrificing form and function. That said, mark your calendars—the BLIMS Fine Furniture mid-year sale is coming this mid-June and lasting until July.
