Amazing transforming furniture concepts

Space comes at premium these days. Every now and then, we come across some of the most innovative space saving furniture concepts. Be it indoor gardening or sleeping, everything is becoming the symbol of modularity at its best. Coming to modularity, nothing defines it better than furniture in homes that is used on daily basis, testifying the importance of modularity. Here comes in the usage of some furniture that is multifunctional. Turn this way you can sit, turn that way you can use it as a table and turn another way, there you have a storage system. I hope I have painted a picture good enough in which you now have to fill colors by looking at some of the most amazing transforming furniture concepts by scrolling down.

Transformer Shelves

Designed by Martin Sammer these shelves allow unique customization of compartments and store things according to his/ her needs. It is more of a creative expression given the ammunition of functionality.

Modular Office Concept

Designed by Florian Jouy, it comes too handy in our space cramped spaces. It is a modular office that folds out to form a single bed. Taking inspiration from the way of living of students, it allows you to rest whenever you are tired of working. That is not all, it also comes with drawers that not only allows you to store, but also serve as a headboard.

Modular furniture units are getting all the attention these days. This modular office concept by Florian Jouy could come handy in modern apartment settings, where space is a major problem. The design of this modular office has been inspired by the way students live.

You can use the modular unit as a simple desk when at work and when you feel like sleeping, you can convert the same into a full bed. The office equipment and other accessories can be stores in the built-in drawer, which serves the function of a headboard. The three planks can be used either as a seating unit or as a mattress for sleeping purposes. The possibilities with modular furniture are never-ending and the only requisite is imagination.

Tent Sofa

Philippe Malouin has designed this tent sofa for Campeggi. It is a multi-functional furniture that can be used as an outdoor furniture unit or even a space saving option for sleeper sofas. The arms of this sofa can be unfolded to create walls and the roof around the mattress transforms into to a cozy bed. Playful transformation of the sofa definitely takes the furniture to a new level.

To meet the users’ diverse needs and to make the most out of the least available space in modern city apartments, London-based designer Philippe Malouin has designed an amusing piece of furniture dubbed “Tent sofa” for the Italian brand manufacturer, Campeggi. Based on the idea of a couch, this multifunctional tent sofa can be used as an outdoor furniture unit or as a space-saving alternative to sleeper sofas. Furnished in green fabric, the tent sofa, with the impression of a military tent, pitches in a space that is shared or common. Looking like an ordinary chair, the modular furniture transforms into a bed or even an outdoor tent-like shelter. Its arms can be unfolded to create walls to maintain privacy, and a pitched roof around the extended mattress turns it into a cozy and comfortable bed. Speaking of alternatives, it takes the idea of a couch fort to an entirely new level.

The sofa is made of soft polyurethane panels, therefore, it can be unfolded to create a real life tent in order to shield its user from public glances. This sofa could also be used in the public sector.


Designed by Ufuk Keskin, it is a clever piece of furniture. It is an apt creation for small spaces, as it is easy to store and easily transportable. It can be flattened completely just like a pack of business cards.

Exploring the wide range of furniture, we often face difficulty in transporting them from one place to the other. Portable furniture is what catches our eye in such scenarios.

Ufuk Keskin has cleverly designed a unique “Sheetseat” that gets molded from a chair to a flat pile of wood analogous to a business card. Featured at DWR’s M+D+F 2022 and IDSA’s Equilateral Exhibitions during New York Design Week, this portable chair is apt for small spaces, allowing ease of storage and transportation. This creative design looks appealing with its extraordinary appearance and convenience.

Sheetseat is a folding chair cut from a single sheet of plywood with a thickness of 3/4″ when collapsed. This simple innovation in flat-pack seating allows for storage and transportation in even the tightest of spaces

5 chairs can be CNC routed out of a single sheet of 4’x8’ plywood with minimal assembly. Appx. 60 chairs fit in the trunk of a regular sized sedan.  Sheetseat was featured by Manhattan Magazine as one of the 5 must-see designs during NY Design Week.

Recommended Articles

We have some articles that I would like to recommend to the readers.

Foundation Repair And Maintenance

We have described here the type of foundations, what is a foundation inspection and what should be included in a good foundation inspection checklist. We can discover problems in the foundation to make us ask ourselves if it is safe to live in a house with foundation problems, and what entails a foundation repair. Not only the repair activity itself but how it affects our wallets.

I explain if the foundation repair is actually covered by homeowners insurance and the actual foundation repair cost. We disaggregated these foundation repair costs and determined, the cost per pier when footings or piers are the solutions for the settlement of a foundation.

To repair a foundation, the service provider might require an underpinning system using piers: push piers vs helical piers where helical piers are preferable for residential real estate objects, despite their costs. Also when you compare helical piers with concrete footings, we can determine that helical piers are more cost-efficient than concrete footings, in my opinion.

We have water in the crawlspace, which can be an issue for the whole foundation if the problem persists, and an additional difficulty when selling a house with water in the crawl space, as it can provide the prospective buyer with a lot of bargaining power, so what can we do: I explain what to do when the crawlspace is flooded or there are simply puddles of water always standing, thus I describe how to remove quickly the water in the crawlspace and how to prevent the problem for the future. So I discuss if it is normal to have water in the crawlspace after a heavy rain, and the importance to perform a crawlspace waterproofing thereafter, normally by installing a vapor barrier.

I describe how to improve the air quality in the crawlspace and to accomplish this, I am reluctant to use lime powder in this article, where I explain the pros and cons, as I would be using lime powder only to avoid the dangers of raw sewage under the house.

We discuss the sill plate replacement cost and how to avoid the outdoor sump pump freezing because it happened to me once.

There are always new methods for repairing foundations. One of them that we investigate here is the Powerbrace foundation repair method.

Animals can be a problem when they live near the foundation: In the following articles, we describe how to remove them and how to prevent them from digging and burrowing. The articles are about animals digging holes around the foundation or when they are burrowing below concrete, below a concrete slab, or between gaps in concrete footings, for example.

In regards to basements, I describe how to solve the hydrostatic pressure in the basement, which is a lateral pressure that is the main cause for having a basement wall that is bowing, or that can be caving in or buckling. While a slight inward curve for basement wall bowing is acceptable, after that degree, you have to address the issue and face sometimes relatively high basement wall repair costs.

I provide to you some reasons why we will need a certified specialist to deal with a risky sewage backup in the basement because bacteria survive a long time in a contaminated sewage network, and also we discuss how to deal with a basement drain backing up in general and what to do when it happens only when flushing the toilet, something that is not a DYI project at all.


I explain here the process of concrete lifting or concrete raising, which can be done through mudjacking or slabjacking. We recommend the latter, which injects polyurethane foam.


There are some interesting articles here, in this Framing category. I refer to sistering floor joists, as a methodology to reinforce existing floor joists with some emphasis on sistering 2x6 floor joists or sistering with 2x8 instead, and about the building code for sistering joists, for sistering rafters, and the code for notching floor joists.

Many of these problems have a consequence: sinking or sagging floors.

Water Heaters

About water heaters, we have a complete guide about water heater types and their installation requirements, about power vent water heaters, and venting in tankless devices, and I also explain in detail the difference between a mobile home water heater and a standard water heater. I also describe in detail how to remove the heating element without an element wrench using just a socket, and how to fix leaks.

We have a few reviews when a water heater falls into our hands, such as the Titan product portfolio, Navien lineup, the Titan N-160 reviews, the most praised by our readers, and the Rinnai R94LSi.

I study several water heater capacities and tested 20-gallon water heater units and a comparison between point of use and tankless water heaters.

We open a tankless water heater to show how does it look like inside a tankless water heater, and how to protect your water heater against the effects of hard water. I also explain the pros and cons of tankless water heaters because many people consider that tankless units are better than standard heaters and it is not always the case.

After the lifecycle of the water heater is over, I reveal to you different options to proceed with its disposal.


Just because they became popular and related to current news, I study how to identify aluminum wiring and once discovered, how to proceed with its remediation or retrofit.

Pest Control

I have a featured article where I compare Orkin vs Terminix pest control services.
