Are you someone who is passionate about being eco-friendly and energy efficient? If so, there’s a pretty good chance that it affects everything about how you live from what you eat, to how you how use the electricity within your home, to even how you decorate your home.
That’s the cool thing about transformer furniture. It basically supports the theme of “going green” because its pieces that are designed in a way that are multi-purposed while also being made from recycled materials or eco-friendly materials such as bamboo, cork, wicker and others.
So, if you’re looking for some transformer furnishings in order to create the ultimate kind of eco-friendly home, we have five ideas to help get you started on your interior designing below:
An ottoman. Of all of the things that are featured on this list, an ottoman is probably the least expensive, but it certainly does qualify as being a “transformer piece”. That’s because while you can use it for storing things like books and magazines or even your children’s clothes and toys, it can also serve as an extra seat at the dinner table or footrest in the living room.
A Designboom sofa. OK, here’s something that’s pretty awesome. Designboom is that name of a furniture design company that specializes in making convertible furniture. One of their recent additions is a sofa that can easily be changed into a dining room table, complete with six padded stools.
A desk that turns into a bed. Technically, a sofa bed in a piece of transformer furniture because it’s a “couch by day” and a “bed by night”. But, if you’re wanting something that is a bit more sleek and modern, you might want to check out some of the pieces that are featured on StudioNL website. The desk is literally designed to where you can work on top of it and then, when you’re ready to retire for the evening, you can pull out the hideaway bed that is built-in underneath it.
Casulo’s “room in a box”. One of the most creative things to date is Casulo’s box that beckons you by saying “Open me, there are more selections here.” Remarkably, this designer has come up with a way to put inside of one (fairly small) box, a desk, armoire, six-shelf briefcase and even a bed (complete with a mattress). As an added bonus, you can assemble each piece of furniture in around 10 minutes. (Mein-Casulo.de)
Look around on Pinterest. Although transformer furnishings are not really anything new, as more people are becoming more environmentally-aware, it is becoming a more popular way to decorate a home. Still, if you are looking for some great ideas, you may have to do a bit of digging before you find a piece (or two) that you really like. Although our above suggestions can definitely start pointing you into the right direction, we encourage you to also stop by Pinterest. On there, you’ll see everything from coffee tables that turn into lawn furniture to bookshelves that transform into craft tables.
