In a city apartment, storage space is the biggest luxury one can have. Living in a studio for two years, I made the most of my diminutive interiors by storing everything from laundry detergent to luggage to cocktail napkins in my walk-in closet. When my kitchen cabinets reached their maximum load, bulk bags of paper towels and bottles of beaujolais nouveau would be stored right along with my intimates and party dresses. Not the most convenient arrangement, but you do what you have to do — right?
If only I'd owned a few multipurpose furniture pieces to help lighten the load, my small-space living might have been more bearable. I've recently discovered some furnishings in particular that I really wish I'd had in those days. If you're living in a little lair, you'll be pleased to discover my multitasking finds! Check them out.
