This piece of furniture is designed by Ines Kaag and Desiree Heiss of BLESS. It’s called the Workbed because it’s a desk that can be flipped over and used as a bed as well. So it’s perfect if you work from home and are short on space or you have an extra room or space in your home that you want to use as an office and guest room. I also thought it could work pretty well in some tiny houses or at least in a small cabin, cottage, studio, or apartment.

A Coffee Table you can Transform into a Dining Table

“We commissioned our friend and designer, Dave Myers to build us a custom convertible coffee/dining table a few weeks ago. It’s our very own little transformer (except that it’s manual, not automatic.) This proved to be an ambitious project, since nothing had been done quite like it before. Inspiration was drawn from a few designs that we’d come across while researching, but all in all it is definitely one-of-a-kind.” (Source)

Wall Mounted Flip Desks for your Multi-functional Tiny Space

For the last few days I’ve been trying to figure out how to re-create my home office inside of our 400-square-foot micro apartment. It’s pretty challenging to accomplish in a small 1-bedroom without any major changes to the apartment AND while keeping a decent living area, dining area, kitchen and bedroom.

And since I don’t own it, I didn’t want to make or invest in any structural type of renovations. What I’d really like to do is turn our apartment into a transforming micro apartment but that costs too much and takes quite a lot of effort. So for now I’m considering this flip desk/table because it’s cheap, easy to install and it looks great too.

In fact a few tiny housers have used them in their builds to create a multifunctional kitchen/office area. Another thing you can do if you’re a carpenter or would like to work on your DIY skills is to take the design and recreate it yourself.

But if that doesn’t sound very fun or you just don’t think you have the time to do that you can order one and mount it yourself relatively easily. Order from Amazon here (it’s also available in natural wood color) or check it out at IKEA here and here. Prices tend to change at Amazon so just double check to make sure you get the best deal.
