With so many creative sofa designs these days, we love to see projects that stand out. Anthropologie envisioned a modern sofa which occupies a special place among the contemporary upholstered furniture out there. Featuring digitally manipulated photos of faraway places on a neutral background, this couch is the kind of piece you imagine building your entire room around. Perfect for modern rooms with a personality, but also adaptable to classic interiors, the seating unit is fresh, adaptable and original.
But if you take a step back and ignore its perfect design and aesthetic value, you may be shocked to find that the sofa does not rank high in practicability. It is not expandable, nor can it be moved easily from place to place. Still, we like it so much, we would rather ignore that, as well as its steamy price tag (of $3,298 !) and simply ask if you enjoy its overall appearance as much as we do.
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.
Hobbyists often have lots of stuff that require lots of storage room that’s easy to access and keep tidy. Whether it’s sewing, crafting, gardening, or something else — organization is key, and an armoire can really be the perfect solution for it. You might be surprised to find how versatile armoires can be to use in place of other pieces of furniture. Check out this desk from Apartment Therapy! Put it out of sight by closing the doors when you’re all done working. If you’re expecting, an armoire can be a clever use of a changing table. And when baby is all grown up, you’ll have the opportunity to find another use for your armoire. An old armoire works just as well as a regular bookcase — if not better for the unique look you get. Check out how these home owners replaced the glass doors with netting to show off their book collection.
