The question we are asked most often as the space specialists is, how do you furnish a small apartment ?

With a small apartment such as a studio and SOHO being made up of an open plan living and sleeping area it provides an efficient layout which makes best use of limited space. But when your bedroom or office is also your living room how do you keep each area distinct without walls. There are a number of different ways to design them so you can sleep in comfort whilst also being able to enjoy a luxurious and elegant living space.

In shoebox apartments you can't afford to dedicate space to one use, in fact a shoebox is just perfect if you design your space to be fluid and flexible, with transforming furniture such as our hiddenbed mechanism beds so you can sleep, work, relax, play or chill in the same space. Spaceman's innovative furniture and homewares are all designed to maximise your space.

To get the most out of a SOHO apartment you need it to function as a credible office and a cosy home. In most cases that means writing off an area for sleeping and using the rest for working. With Spaceman furniture you can use all your SOHO apartment for both work and living.

With the Spaceman Slumberdesk range you can have a single or double bed combined with a full size desk, in the day it looks like a desk at night it opens up to a full double or queen size bed at night. We also offer the choice of vertically opening or horizontally opening beds to suit the space you have available.



The desk remains level at all times so you can leave laptops, files etc on the desk when you open the bed, and likewise you can leave the sheets and duvet on the bed when you close it.

For additional flexible desk space in your SOHO apartment the Deskappear completely conceals a desk when it's not required. It has optional shelves for files, folders etc and a drawer to put easily put away laptops and desk accessories.

They can still sit up to ten people and no-one would know they aren't dining tables full time. Space saving coffee/dining tables start at S$1000.

You can match these with one of our sets of folding dining chairs.
