This coffee table design by Amy Whitworth from QUBIS HAUS is plain lovely. Multi-leveled and multi-functional, the piece looks original and can also serve as a playing grounds when transformed into a doll house. Its smooth texture inspires warmth and the carved squares induce a sense of friskiness. But will the design not cause a conflict of interests when installed in its rightful place in the living room? Won’t young ladies jump at it during coffee brakes?
Here is a short project description from the developers: “QUBIS HAUS is a coffee table that transforms into a doll’s house with the simple addition of sliding panels made from wood and perspex, enabling the ‘designer’ to create different room layouts.The table is made in solid birch ply wood and has clean modern lines making it a beautiful piece of living room furniture as well as a center for children to play“. Be sure to have a look at the video to see how the doll house can be customized!
Most people have closets in their homes these days, but sometimes there’s always that need for the stuff that just doesn’t fit or belong in there. Check out this great use of an armoire to hang coats, store outerwear, and even provide a little bench area! Perfect for any entryway or mudroom. If you have a bathroom that fits one, an armoire is a beautiful way to add more storage — especially for towels. Like some of the others on this list, this armoire from Enchanted Home does away with the glass and replaces it with netting instead.
You can never have enough storage in the kitchen. If you lack cabinet space but have just enough room along an area of a wall, an armoire can serve as a wonderful pantry. Check out this great example from Decoholic. Alternatively, you could use the same idea as above, but for coffee instead. Ever Evolving Life 4-5 shows the complete transformation this armoire went through to become a cute little coffee bar.
