Ideas for Multi-Purpose Furniture
Multi-purpose or Multi-functional Furniture has innumerable variants. The most common example in modern furniture design is the Sofa cum bed, which is a sofa that can transform into a bed. Similarly, in some cases, stackable beds can also become an efficient choice as they serve the purpose of a double bed, two different beds, a day bed and even a corner sofa. A bookshelf can have a pop-out table that can serve as a workstation. Similarly, a side table design can be customised in parts to become a dining table. The whole concept of multifunctional furniture is taken to the next level by ideas like storage cabinets or shelves under each step of the staircase, a dining table under a bed, a bunk bed with storage and workstation etc.
Multifunctional Furniture from Alankaram
Working from home has become the new normal, that makes people stay inside their homes for longer periods. This creates the demand for multi-functional furniture that can cater to the duality of home and office furniture. Thus, the furniture stores offer a number of options in the form of multi-functional furniture.
For example, Alankaram’s upholstered bed trunk ‘Putu’, is classic in its design and uses printed fabric to double up as a storage unit. The product also acts as a bench that could be used at the foot of the bed. The ‘work from home’ culture requires ergonomic home office furniture to sit for long working hours. For that, Alankaram has designed the ‘Lovit’ study table, which is also multifunctional as it contains two seamless drawers fitted with soft close channels. This table can also serve as a dining table because of its seamless aesthetics.
