Designers nowadays are faced with many challenges when having to come up with new lines of furniture, especially by the reduction of living spaces. They're always in the look out for new ideas and ways of maximizing their functionality. And when looking for new seating alternatives, I was wowed by all of these kooky solutions. Is it a chair or a lamp? Is it a bench or a bookcase? Is it a magazine rack or a stool? The answers: all of the above. These seating wonders had their job descriptions doubled — besides giving us a place to sit, they also help us live clutter-free. Thanks to the ingenuity of these designers, those of us living small, now can enjoy some free space. Turn it on, grab a book, sit back and relax!
