The sad fact is, we don’t all have Queer Eye‘s Bobby Berk on hand to get our flats Insta-ready at the drop of the hat, neither do we have the sprawling, never-ending space of a Kardashian mansion as our disposal, so, for many of us that means we have to get creative with the space-saving.

However, just because most of us are working with *slightly* less space than we’d like doesn’t mean we have to compromise on style; it’s just about finding the dreamy interiors x efficiency sweet-spot. Here’s our pick of the best furniture pieces for small spaces and petite layouts. Doesn’t that sounds much nicer?!


Renée Rattan Tall Full Length Mirror

Mirrors are great for creating the illusion of more space, and placing them by a window is the perfect way to reflect the world outside. Rattan is also sooo in right now, and we can’t get enough of the comeback. 


Roma Single Chairbed, Pink

We’re in LOVE with this dainty pink sofa bed from Habitat. By day, it’s a stylish comfy chair, but by night, it’s a cosy guest bed, perfect for a good old Netflix binge.


Wall Mounted Hanging Rack Shelf with Wine Glass Holder

Graw Furniture


Obviously we love a bar cart, even if it’s just a place for a fancy decanter you never use and a bowl of citrus fruit. But, if you’re tight on space, try a wall-mounted bar like this one from Wayfair.


Ero Orange Velvet & Tassel Floor Lamp

This lamp is everything. If the bright orange velvet doesn’t get you, then the tassels will. It’s available in other colours too, including pink and navy blue. Plus it’s standalone, meaning you don’t have to use up valuable table space.


Belgrave Extending Dining Table

This dark stained wood dining table is perfect for smaller homes. It can extend to fit 6 people when you’re hosting but can retract into a snug circle when you need the space.


Ria Room Divider

Urban Outfitters


This boho-approved rattan room divider is the perfect way to break up your space if you’ve not got many rooms to play with. It’s also foldable for easy storage.


Vienna 2 Seater Velvet Sofa, Rose

This squidgy Habitat sofa is ideal for a cosy living room nook. At just five and a half feet wide it’s easily slotted into tight spaces, but means you don’t have to compromise on comfort.


Sahara Table

This Sahara table is a great way to introduce a bit of 1920s art deco to your space, while giving you a snug and efficient surface that would look perfect sitting next to a velvet sofa.


Ezra Velvet Swivel Chair – Blush Pink

With shell-like detail and a swivel feature (yes really), this dinky armchair is perfect for tight spaces where you need a little movement. You can pick it up in this blush pink or a contemporary grey.


Istanbul Jute Circle Rug

We are sold when it comes to anything wicker, seagrass, or jute, especially when it’s a convenient 59 inches across. Pair with a generous amount of plants and you’ve got yourself a piece of 70s heaven. 


Slimline Bamboo Caddy

Carrying on with the Scandi style interiors, we’re absolutely loving this bamboo bathroom caddy. It’s an absolute steal too at just £30, and it’s tall and slim so it’s perfect for teeny bathrooms and lots of products.


Kano Double Platform Bed

This bed is giving us major New York City main character vibes. Plus it has storage drawers and these very cool bookshelves at the foot of the bed.


Kooper Storage Pouffe, White Boucle

Aside from being a living room essential, a pouffe is a great way to sneak some extra storage into your set-up. Plus, we cannot get enough boucle…


Haze 2-Seater Sofa Bed

This stylish grey fold-out sofa bed is just 65 inches wide (including arms) meaning that it’s perfect if you want an extra bed for guests but are short on space.


Twig right solid walnut column

Secret storage is the key to maximising your space. Which is why this floor-length mirror with a shelved back is a perfect space-saving solution. 


Foldable Seagrass Woven Planter

Can you tell we’re a little obsessed with wicker atm? This woven basket will accommodate your plant babies beautifully, and can tuck into teeny spaces.


Pembridge Folding Desk, Natural Mango Wood & Racing Green

Now we’re WFH a lot more than we used to we’ve got to squeeze an office into our living space as well as everything else. Well, that’s where folding desks come in. A perfect work space and office storage unit when folded out this Swoon Editions desk also acts as a chic bookshelf when folded away.
