Twofold Furniture for Tiny Houses and Small Spaces

This high tech Twofold furniture by Christy Oates is a great invention for small spaces, tiny houses, and any multifunctional space.

The video below will do more than my words can describe as to what’s actually possible with smart design.

It’s described as folding furniture and when not in use it’s stored on your wall like a piece of art. When you’d like to use it, you simply pull the furniture out and set it up. When you’re done, you can enjoy your open space and your furniture is used as art.

A laser cutting machine is used to cut the plywood and engrave the art onto the furniture. Innovations like this certainly makes me look forward to the next few decades as our small spaces get better and better. Please enjoy and re-share.

    The main problem I have with such rigid chairs is they are so uncomfortable. Love when I see tiny houses that have cushy seating, as it feels and looks welcoming.

      One could easily hang seat cushions on the folded, wall-mounted chairs.

    Christy is a GENIUS!!!! Absolutely mind-boggling how she took a 2-dimensional “art work” off of the wall and turned it into 3-D furniture! My faves: the Skyline Table and the Lamp…WOW!!!

    I did find it mildly amusing and a touch ironic that furniture designed to minimize space was show-cased in a MASSIVELY LARGE STUDIO SPACE! Bwhahahahhaaaaa. It would have been nice, in the end, to actually see it inside one of these micro 100 sq.ft. or less tiny houses.

    But, still enthralling and exciting to see the videos. 😀

    Now that’s some out of the box thinking! Astonishing creativity and craftsmanship.

    The Skyline coffee table is my favorite…I like the way the piece left on the wall is still art after the table piece is removed, and how it echoes the assembled table.

    Very imaginative and I especially liked the folding light fixture. Beautifully designed and assembled. Thanks for sharing. Cheers from Australia

    I just love this wonder creative idea, art, storage in small areas and practical use all rolled up in one…it looks great. I can see a real market for this type of thing. I think there is a whole area of furniture yet to be discovered in this fashion. I look forward to see more.

    this is a cute novelty but for me one of the reasons I like my tiny house is I was able to return to the craftsmanship of a handmade home. This is machine made with more arts and crafts than craftsmanship. That laser on the other hand could supply hours of amusement when I don’t want to work in the wood shop.

    While I think these are cute and would be functional for a moveable unit I think there is a great trade off once the unit is set. Most people want tables and chairs for everyday living. What good is a shelf that folds out if you can’t put anything on it since the whole idea is it stows. As mentioned above most of that folding stuff is very uncomfortable at best. As a furniture builder myself I find the stuff neat in design but somewhat lacking in warmth and fashion. Most people that live in mini homes want as much comfort in use and visual appeal as space can afford. IMHO
