BRILLIANT INGENUITY

I've come across many multi-functional, space-saver pieces of furniture, but this slick desk is one of my favorites. Deskbox is a brilliant wall-mounted desk/cabinet unit designed by Israel-born, UK-based designers Yael Mer and Shay Akalay of Raw Edges studio for Dutch furniture company Arco. It has a retraction system that allows it to easily open and reveal a comfortable work space, and close to its original compact form. Either way, it's a beautiful piece of furniture.

STYLE COMES IN SMALL PACKAGES

It's hard to believe this jewel of an apartment is barely 420 square-feet. The whole studio was so cleverly planned that they were able to accommodate a living area, an eat-in kitchen, a cozy sleeping quarter and even a small home office—all done exquisitely with plenty of style. The use of black and white was key to giving the space a cohesive look and a feeling of continuity, which makes the pad seem more spacious that it actually is. The combination of styles is delicious, particularly the mix of pendants in the dining area. What's not to love about this charming home?

A TRIO TO SHOWCASE

Finding beautiful bathroom accessories at times can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to items like a toilet brush and the not-so-attractive plunger. You know we've all been there. But guess what? This sleek, modern—but with a twist of old-school practicality—bathroom trio by Josh Owen will make your bathrooms shine. The WC Line is a space-conscious and highly functional line of bathroom accessories that includes a waste bin, toilet brush and plunger—made from ultra durable silicone in a range of super cool colors. The design of all three pieces is so beautiful and simple that you won't feel the need to hide them but will want to proudly display for all to see and covet.

A SMALL SWEDISH JEWEL

Studio-apartment dwellers are always faced with the tough challenge of making a small space functional without sacrificing style. But the owner of this precious, 430-square-feet Swedish pad is proud of having accomplished both beautifully. With a little planning and editing, this chic studio was successfully laid out to include a living area, room for a small home office and a cozy corner for the bed. Of course, it also helps that the apartment has a charming foyer/hallway which separates the kitchen and bathroom from the living area and provides extra storage room for the owner. Overall, this little jewel is a winner in my book.

This stylish duplex in central Stockholm is anyone's dream apartment. With soaring high ceilings and an unusual floor plan, this dashing loft has everything to make me go weak in the knees: luscious space, white from floor to ceiling and a fun, eclectic collection of furniture. Obviously, that divine bathroom is also to die for.

A HANDY RACK

Most times closet space doesn't come in abundance. I remember when we were searching for apartments, one of the first things we would look for was storage and closets. Unfortunately, here in New York City that is a commodity that's hard to find—I would say ninety percent of the places we saw had tiny ones or none at all. But guess what? That's part of living in the big city and we make do. I know people who in order to compensate for the lack of storage, buy metal racks to hang their clothes. So if you ever find yourself in that situation and would like put your skillful hands at work and make your own, I came across this pretty-easy-to-make and inexpensive coat rack in Weekday Carnival. The beauty of this rack is that you can customize it to a size that best works for you and paint to match your decor. All you need is a few copper pipes, six corner pieces and four T-connectors. Enssemble, polish, wipe, paint and voilá. You have a pretty industrial-chic rack that will look great either in your bedroom or foyer as a handy coat rack.

TO BEAT, OR NOT TO BEAT

Inspired by a pack of straws, this space-saving Beater whisk is a sculpture in its own right. Designed by German company Ding3000 for Normann Copenahagen, the whisk is simple, compact and very chic. It is gathered in the middle using a ring that functions as both an opening and closing mechanism and a hanging fixture. I get beyond excited when I find everyday utensils designed not just with practicality in mind but also with great looks—most importantly with so many cool colors to choose from. I'm digging the grey one with the black ring. Which one would you get?

Ride on!

When living in tight quarters, one is always in search of storage solutions that make our lives easier, and most importantly don't become an eyesore in our homes. Sometimes we sacrifice the enjoyment of having certain things for the lack of space where to store them. A bicycle is one of those treasured possessions that could be very challenging to keep in a small space. But Italian company BYografia found an genius way of solving this problem by creating Bookbike. This handsome bookshelf/bike storage combo will make many city dwellers quite happy. The piece is very versatile: it adjust to fit any size bike and is equipped with adjustable legs to guarantee stability. Happy riding!
