You don’t have to forgo a comfortable and stylish sofa just because you’re starved for space. For a small apartment, skip the three-seater and jump at the chance of a two-seater, especially if it’s a classic from Carl Hansen & Son! Designed by Kaare Klint back in 1930 for the office of the then Danish Prime Minister, this great sofa comes in options of oak, walnut, or black-painted oak with leather and goatskin upholstery.
Measuring a mere 33cm at its widest point, this slender chair can fit into any tight spot, and is particularly great for doing light work in a small study. Made in a lacquered steel frame with moulded polyurethane foam upholstered in fabric or leather, it’s also lightweight – so you can move it around the house with ease.
Available at Blå Station
Want to recreate a boutique hotel-inspired bathroom at home? Well you really can, even in the smallest of apartments. The new Victoria + Albert Metallo 61 Quartz washstand is an elegant and luxurious-looking design that’s perfect for compact spaces. It features a durable Quartz surface, an undermounted Kaali 46 basin, and an optional quartz upstand. It also comes with a towel bar and tubular brass shelf for storage. Available in three Quartz colours – Black, White and Biscuit.

BTO homeowners listen up. TURBO Italia has launched two built-in, compact, two-zone hobs under its IMMAGINARIO series that are particularly great for small kitchens in BTO flats. TM29 is a ceramic hob with a nine-stage power setting. It is made with premium SCHOTT Ceran glass, and boasts nifty features such as front-touch control and lateral side frame; an automatic safety switch off; residual heat indicators; and a safety lock. The TIM29 is also made of SCHOTT Ceran glass. It comes with front touch control; timer; residual heat indicator; automatic stop; and child lock. Better yet, it has a 13Amp power supply, and hence is compatible with all households’ power points (many hobs in the market have a 15Amp power supply, requiring homeowners to make adjustments to their power points).
If your kid’s room is space starved, go for flexible, multi-functional and slim furniture pieces that will ‘grow’ with your child. ACTUS häuse offers designs that are not just temporary additions to a child’s life, but adaptable solutions that can accompany them through the different phases of their life. A case in point: their Tempo collection of furniture is both fun and versatile, with consideration for future space planning. We particularly like how this slim design (above) works as both a display cum storage shelf, and as a desk.
