Don't you love.....double the function

A friend of mine has had me thinking about furniture layouts for smaller living spaces, with fewer, larger pieces of furniture, investment pieces to use in a future home.
So I am thinking - dining table doubles as console or desk.

Works as eating space for two.  Pull table clear and place chairs all around when more people come over.  What do you think?  Any ideas?


  1. OOOH! I love it, I am sending this post to a client right now! The perfect solution for her weird shaped living/dining room!

    1. Wonderful!!! Its fun thinking of solutions for rooms. Ofcourse I have no idea how to fix my living room layout. Its just not working but I can't resolve it.
