Small Space Folding Furniture


Folding furniture is not often pretty. It conjures up thoughts of grey metal, vinyl upholstery and pinched fingers.

Nils Frederking of Berlin is changing all of our past perceptions of folding furniture. His new pieces are both beautiful and durable. These pieces look like they could be used everyday. They are stylishly designed and fold for easy storage.

In small space living, dining is often a problem — this table could be easily stored away until needed. Having a dinner party? Not a problem, just pull the Klappstuhl F2 out of the closet and you have a dining table. Don’t need a full-sized table every day? Fold it up and put it away.

I’m not sure when these will be available for sale, but French furniture manufacturer Ligne Roset has them listed as key products for this years line-up.
