Transforming furniture

Written by Rachel L. Ritter

I love furniture that looks cool, my husband loves Transformers,  “who doesn’t enjoy products that do both”?  So now I’m doing a roundup of  furniture & products that can “transform” to save space while looking awesome.

RANDOM PRODUCTS:

How awesome would it be to have a camper like this on long fishing or camping trips?

HOME:

I can’t even imagine the planning that had to go into the space layout and design of that apartment. Watch it in full screen so you can see every bit of awesomeness.

Curtain door by Matharoo Associates in Surat, India.  It’s beautiful because it looks like it moves really smoothly, but it kind of makes me think of a centipede and then it creeps me out.  But then again I can definitely appreciate the creativity that brought this idea to life.

I thought this was a cool idea because it’s a more realistic option that could be used by people on a budget. Maybe it’s something to keep in mind if you’re getting your home built from the ground up and you get to make choices about your layout and setup of your interiors.

One day I would like to do that, have our own home built within our specifications and layouts. I know the hubby would be into that sort of thing too, maybe when he’s retired and we’re living somewhere nice like Nebraska or Colorado.

This saves so much space, amazing.  Would be great in a dorm room or military barracks.

These stairs don’t transform, but they sure do look like they can!

LIGHTING: (probably doesn’t move but sure looks like it does!)

This gold light fixture looks like it can move, like the photo was taken in the middle of a rotation.

The fourth Transformers movie doesn’t come out until around June 2014, but this light does remind me of the opening sequence of the past trailers.

Not sure how this movie will turn out since there’s pretty much none of the original characters in it.  As long as it has Bumblebee I guess I can’t be too mad at it. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2109248/fullcredits?ref_=tt_cl_sm#cast

OUTDOOR FURNITURE:

This outdoor collection is just a part of a series that has a great look but saves on space by tucking away into itself kind, of like a rollie pollie or a turtle. Anyway, this would be great if you live in a place where there’s frequent bad weather and you want to protect your outdoor furniture by moving it inside easily.
