Does unexpected utility set your heart aflutter? Yeah, we’re right there with you. That’s why so many of our furnishings are designed to go the extra mile – from multitasking to space-saving.
These pieces are like the Renaissance men and women of interior furniture: They can expertly serve different functions, depending on the need at hand. For example, the Isadora Multifunctional Cabinet features a mirrored back, adjustable shelves and a plethora of drawers and cubbies, so it’s primed for storing and serving drinks. But, like the Taylor Demilune Desk/Vanity, it can function just as beautifully as a vanity or small desk. Pieces like the Serafina Sideboard likewise provide generous storage for any purpose – and any room – neatly concealed behind an eye-catching exterior.
And in terms of dramatic transformations, it doesn’t get much more impressive than our game tables – including Vercelli and Dax – that have a surface for dining as well as one for playing cards, pool or even table tennis.
We love beauties that are made all the more stunning by specialized features. Our Charlowe and Laurel Ultimate Vanities have customized drawers for holding hot styling tools, jewelry and even those tiny tubes of cream that are so easily lost.
For the office, the integrated power strip on our Hunter Executive Desk keeps cords wrangled and concealed, while a hinged door provides incognito storage for a desktop computer’s base unit.
And, because we can all use a little help getting ready in the morning – and getting laundry put away – our Hugo Four-drawer Valet Chest conceals two pull-out clothes rods and a surface for folding.
Even when a room has spacious dimensions, it’s always nice when furniture goes the extra mile to make the most of every square inch. The Rainier Round Dining Table, for example, beautifully fills its function of providing dining space for four, while the base also houses two drawers and a hidden cabinet, so another glass of wine is within reach.
Many occasional seating pieces – including the Clara Storage Vanity Stool, and the Berkeley and Benjamin storage ottomans – likewise maximize their utility. One stylish favorite? The Juliette, which incorporates soft storage pockets for up to 16 pairs of shoes. Other storage solutions that are packed with functionality from top to bottom include the Bradley Barmoire – which has specialized spots for holding bottles, glassware and bar accessories – and the Loren Jewelry Cabinet, which provides row after row of velvet-lined drawers as well as side compartments for hanging necklaces.
