These 5 Space-Saving Pieces Will Transform Your Small Home

Who said furniture for small spaces can’t be stylish? These pieces beg to differ!


Don’t make your new condo unit or small home look like an ordinary model unit—you have to personalize it with your own unique finds and furniture pieces that are efficient but stylish. Check out these new pieces from Habitat. All five are space saving, storage-friendly, and well-designed.

A fabulous wall organizer.

These wooden wall hooks come in two sizes and can hang your bags, hats, toys, and other whatnots. Play around with shapes—make it into a tree—and it doubles as wall sculpture! Twiggy Hooks, P4,050 (large), and P2,050 (small).

An armchair that fits into tight corners.

The common misconception of condo units is that you cannot have the luxury of an armchair. This cheery yellow armchair, however, dispels that notion—it is a mere 68cm in width, with a snug form. Daborn Armchair, P39,500.

A slim, storage-packed desk.

Stop working on your laptop on your bed! Save your back and your sanity by getting this slim secretary-type desk (with extra storage for papers and a drop-down writing top) that will fit into a corner of your bedroom. It’s only 59-cm wide. Henio Desk, P25,800.

A china cabinet that's modern and sleek.

Nix the fussy, classical china cabinets with all its carvings and frills. Get a clean-lined sideboard that fits your modern lifestyle. This could be used as bookshelves or a display cabinet, too. Ikenna Sideboard by Pierre Favrese, P115,000.

A sideboard that can double as an entertainment console.

This sideboard can be used as a traditional hallway or dining cabinet, but its sleek top and low platform on the right are the perfect spots for placing your vintage turntables and speakers (with storage for your vinyl collection, too). Ileen Sideboard, P56,800.

Visit Habitat branches at 2/F UP Town Center,  Katipunan Ave., Diliman, Quezon City, and at its flagship store at 3/L Abenson, (beside Ascott) 28th  St. and 4th Ave, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig City.
