Furnishing a small space can be almost like a puzzle or a game of Tetris at times. Rather than just buying furniture or home decor items because you love them, you have to consider where it will fit or what will have to go to make space for it. All the better if it's a piece that can work overtime by offering some extra function or secret storage - you don't have space for things that just sit there looking pretty.
Few retailers get this conundrum the way IKEA do, and one of their new releases for February is the perfect fit for small spaces. The new collection is chock full of smart finds for smaller homes, but the Granboda nesting tables steal the show.
Nesting tables definitely aren't a new concept - your granny and your mam's homes probably have sets, but these three dove-grey side tables will fit right in in a more contemporary home. And the best part? The powder-coated steel set will only set you back €59.
We won't say no to more surface space without taking up more floor space, and the IKEA release says the set can be used in a variety of different ways. "Use the tables as three separate side tables, or as one long coffee table. They have a surface that's durable and easy to clean and the smallest table even has a higher edge giving the possibility to store away any clutter or small items, even the remote control." Music to our ears!
The Granboda range is available now, but if you like the look of them, we'd move fast. We reckon at that price they won't last long!
