Space-Saving Bookshelf-Desk

January 18, 2011 | By | Comments (1)

I’m always on the lookout for storage solutions that can work double or triple duty. I currently live in a small-ish space (less than 1,300 sq ft), we lived for the first five years of our marriage in a small place (850 sq ft), and, when we were dating, my husband lived in an itty-bitty place (400 sq ft). I know what it’s like to have your home’s size significantly limit your design and storage options, and finding great furniture can be difficult. So, when I see a stylish, multi-functioning object that includes a storage component, I want to scream it from mountain tops.

Designer Sakura Adachi has created a fun and functional piece named Trick for Italian furniture company Campeggi that is a bookshelf and desk in one unit:

I think you could easily use the desk as a dining table, as well, which makes the piece even more functional.
