Want to save space without sacrificing style? Look for innovative furniture pieces that won’t waste another square foot – from beds that pull out of the walls to cabinets, chairs and tables that transform with multiple functions. These double-duty designs cram maximum use into smart space-saving packages – all with stylish results. You may never look at a cocktail table the same way again.
