This is the Avoid Tiny House. It’s Leonardo Di Chiara’s tiny house design that people like to call the ‘Swiss army knife’ of tiny house designs.

They call it that because all of the furniture and rooms in the house are built-in and fold-out, as you’ll see below. According to Leonardo, he collaborated with over 150 different people to complete the design! Enjoy!

This is the Vento Sectional Sofa Bed by Franz Fertig.

It’s a modern sectional sofa, but it transforms into a comfortable double bed with a bedside table in a unique way.

Unfortunately, it starts out at $6,822 so nobody can really afford it and at that price point, it just wouldn’t be practical, but what do you think of the actual design?

This is a non-electric bed lift that was built for a stealthy cargo trailer to tiny house conversion.

This bed-to-ceiling system could also work for van conversions, tiny homes, and in other small spaces to create more multi-functional space. What do you think?

A while back I introduced you to YO! Home and I described it as a genius multi-functional studio house. That was Prototype 2. So now I’m showing you one of their other prototype studio designs.

This YO! Home gives you some of the functionality of a larger home inside of a studio space by using multifunctional furniture and designs, like how the bed that hides into your ceiling and how the dining room hides into your floor.

It even features a desk that converts into an extra bed, a kitchen that hides away when you’re not using it, and built-in floor storage. If you ever want to find yourself in a city, is a design like this something you would consider?

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 a 100-year-old Kyoto home in Japan that was renovated by NAAD architects using plywood. The home offers 645 sq. ft. of space and it’s been remodeled with multi-functionality and privacy in mind using all plywood.

When you go inside you’ll see how you can slide several of the plywood wall units to transform the place according to your needs. From shape shifting rooms to privacy walls, you really have to see it to believe it in the video below. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

This is the drawer house created by Japanese architects Nendo in Tokyo, Japan.

It’s a multi-functional residential home that transforms according to what you’re doing whether it’s cooking, sleeping, entertaining, dining, bathing, or studying.

Everything pulls out of one wall so that just like a drawer, you can pull out and put away whatever you need. It’s a versatile way to deal with the limited amount of space available in places like Tokyo. Please enjoy, learn more, and re-share below. Thank you!

I’m always on the lookout for space-saving furniture for tiny homes. In this post, I’m excited to show you the Quad Micro Bar by Joe Warren. If you’ve been looking for a dining table solution that doesn’t take up that much room…

Whether you are living in a tiny house, micro apartment, or any other small space. It’s a really cool solution in my opinion because it doubles as a stand-up table and bar stool table. And the stools are really easy to put away. Check it out below and let us know what you think in the comments.
