This is Aiko’s 260 sq. ft. apartment in Japan.
She used a multifunctional coffee table to create a living room that easily transforms into a dining room.
Since the apartment has 11.5ft ceilings, Aiko was able to take advantage of the vertical space too. So the bedroom hovers over the kitchen, and the bathroom is slightly elevated with storage underneath.

This is IKEA’s low maintenance, chain-less bicycle that’s now available in the U.S.
Going tiny can often mean getting rid of one or more vehicles, and this snazzy SLADDA bike could be a great new way to get around town without a car.
This bicycle is powered by a belt drive, which is a rustproof, durable and maintenance-free alternative to a regular chain. The automatic 2-gear system is integrated into the rear hub, so there are no wires that rust or break.
Want one? Me too!

Today I ran into a modern yet creative small space I think you’ll like. Check out Ryan and Tony’s funky and cool Brooklyn loft with a view. They share this space with roommates.
Ryan says, “That’s how we afford this cool place. Sometimes there’s just two of us here, other times four or five.”
There are three bedrooms that they rent out.While the eclectic living area and kitchen are the common gathering place for everyone.
Inside this Brooklyn loft they have decorated and used a lot of space saving furniture and items from Ikea.

In this video IKEA interior designer Ray shows you a 430 square feet (40 square meters) that sleeps six people using IKEA furniture.
The space is very open. Three sets of bunk beds surround the dining table which is used for eating and working.
A corner of the tiny home is used as a music and reading area. And there’s a large kitchen with open storage and lots of vertical storage throughout the entire home.
