Tiny Apartment Merges Transforming Design with Organic Style
There’s a tendency for tiny transforming apartments to feel like they’ve been designed by Optimus Prime. Often when you add furniture that folds into the wall, it’s hard for an interior to not have a futuristic, modern vibe. Which is why interior decorator Geraldine Laferte’s tiny “Duhesme” apartment is so successful–it merges transforming furniture with a warm, organic style.
The Parisian apartment measures a mere 193 sq ft, yet features a dining area, kitchen, lounge, desk, bed and bathroom. Laferte uses a mixture of warm woods and muted wallpaper to keep the place feeling anything but cold and futuristic. The transforming elements include a wall bed that sits above a built in sofa and there’s a small dining area with a table that folds into the wall when not in use; three cube-shaped stools serve as seating. The whole space is lined with floor to ceiling cabinetry to maximize storage.
