Living in a condo or a small space encourages people to think about decorating their homes in new, clever ways. When sharp focus is placed on how rooms are truly utilized, it leads to a carefully edited, pared-down home. This can be very rewarding as it helps streamline day-to-day tasks and daily life.

The tiny home trend is impacting mainstream design and architecture with new homes and condos being built smaller. This of course has a trickle effect, as we are seeing an increase in home furnishings designed for smaller spaces. The amount choice for homeowners living with limited square footage is greater than ever before, as more emphasis is being placed on versatile pieces that are both luxurious and comfortable.

Many of today’s homes no longer have a designated dining room and instead families are eating meals exclusively in the kitchen. This sometimes poses a challenge in smaller kitchens where there isn’t enough space for a dining room table, but there is an occasional need for extra seating when entertaining.

Cue the Myles Table. This piece is a great example of modern furniture designed for a small space or a home that doesn’t have a dining room. It’s a standard size round table at 48-inches, seating four people, but its leaves allow it to extend to 75-inches and sit six.

Remember tiny home doesn’t equal tiny furniture. The best way to ensure that you make the most of your small space is to pick full-sized furniture that is comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. Often times when homeowners live in a tiny space, they gravitate towards smaller pieces thinking it’s the appropriate scale for the room. This often causes people to stuff more pieces into a smaller space, creating clutter. Focusing on versatile pieces like the Myles will give you mileage and comfort.
