Transforming furniture

We’ve featured some transforming wall beds on the site before, and now we want to show you more of them in action. The New York company Resource Furniture has made a demonstration video of all of their amazing space-saving furniture:

Actually, they’ve made two videos, but the second one is produced in a way that kind of makes me motion sick. Regardless, if you live in a small home or have a room that serves multiple purposes, transforming furniture can be a wonderful way to make better use of your space.

    Funny, when I saw the title of this post in my reader I was going to comment about the video I saw this weekend because I thought their stuff was really great — but you’re a step ahead of me :)

    The only downside I see to Resource Furniture is that a lot of what the feature actually takes up a good amount of space and requires large, blank walls which is great for a studio or loft apartment, but for my 625 sq. ft house it isn’t really practical. If I could even fit one of those sofas or beds in my house to begin with, it would certainly be covering a window or a walkway.

    What great ideas and furniture that they have come up with. The only downfall is probably the price. Until this stuff becomes mainstream there will be a premium to pay that the average family may not be able to afford.

    I even saw some pieces that i could live with. Thanks for the video.

    @finallygettingtoeven.com: I’m sure there will be plans available and less expensive copy-cat products within a year…

    I think the most impressive part is that the interaction is so simple and graceful. Everything just glides into place with ease. Even traditional fold out sofas and convertible furniture is usually so cumbersome. This is pretty amazing.

    People my age have seen too many old Three Stooges films where someone gets shut in a Murphy Bed. :)

    The linked website doesn’t publish any prices for these units. Anyone have any idea? Are they ridiculous?

    I wish there was a listing of sellers in other states/locales, too (if there are any?).

    Thanks for this post. It actually makes me look forward to downsizing from a 3-bd single-family house to a 1-bd or studio apartment, some time later this summer.

    Definitely see what you mean by motion sickness! I have a feeling that these furniture pieces are definitely pricey *sigh*

    very cool stuff. I love clever multi use furniture. My only concern is when 2 people want to use the space at the same time for different purposes.

    Oh, and their video company should invest in some lav mics, because some of the audio was awful (sorry – just a pet peeve of mine)

    Your article is an article that made the bus, so that makes me a better idea of what you preach.

    Really amazing stuff. Unfortunately they are extremely pricey, over $2000 for a coffee table! :(
