Furniture with storage space

Keeping order has become a new trend

Keeping order has become a new trend. At least since well-known organising consultants like Marie Kondo rose to prominence, we know that a tidy flat also means a tidy mind.

Clearing things out makes life easier. Sometimes, what’s missing is the right storage space so that you can put things away in your own four walls. We will present you with different furniture that makes this possible in an efficient and stylish way.

Open vs closed storage furniture

Not everything we own has to be cleared away. We like to put memorabilia or objects of art on display. Furniture that combines open and closed surfaces is particularly suitable for this purpose. These combinations also contribute to creating a relaxed atmosphere indoors. This is because only closed fronts can have an oppressive effect, whereas a purely open system quickly gives off a feeling of visual unease.

Table, make my stuff disappear

Life truly begins after you have put your house in order.

Getting more out of your sofa

Who hasn’t experienced this: you’ve made yourself comfortable on the sofa and want to read a good book or watch a film. But neither the remote control nor the book are within reach. You laboriously slide over to the coffee table, which is just too far away for these moments of relaxation.

The remedy here are sofa systems that combine comfort with a possibility for storage or somewhere to set things down on. Whether directly next to the sofa or integrated into the seats – it’s up to your own preference. As an extra add-on, some sofas even offer a storage option with a tray, so that snacks from the kitchen can make their way to the living room in style.

Letting your study disappear

Working from home has blurred the lines between work and relaxation. At home, it should still feel private and nothing should remind you of your job after work. This can be difficult to accomplish because work areas are connected to clutter and you often can’t be bothered to tidy up after work. The solution is modern secretaires that can simply be closed. This way, work disappears with a flick of the wrist and your free time can begin.
