Whether you’re shopping for furniture for your first apartment or are simply looking for furniture to upgrade a new or existing apartment with, we have some ideas for apartment friendly furniture. When choosing the following pieces, we took in to consideration the fact that most apartments are typically on the smaller side (it was noted that the average size of a new apartment in Atlanta for example was 934 feet, 8 percent smaller than 10 years ago) and that because of size, some pieces of furniture will need to serve multiple purposes. We have hundreds of products that could be suggested but selected these few without knowing anything about you, just to get you started.
Hillsdale Furniture Natalie Daybed
A piece of furniture like this would go perfect in an office that can double as a guest bedroom. When the room is being used as an office, pile on the throw pillows. At night, turn it into a bed for a guest (or you if you only have one bedroom). This daybed is easy to match with a lot of other furniture, especially wooden desks. If you expect to have multiple guests stay over at one time, add on its trundle bed.
Magnussen Furniture Griffith Twin/Full Daybed
Having extra storage is never a bad thing and is a theme you’ll notice throughout this blog post. This daybed is on point with the trending rustic home design style and it was crafted in pine solids and veneers. Its deep burnt ember finish and metal knobs make it even more appealing to rustic audiences. Its drawers easily slide in and out and are ideal for storing extra sheets, blankets, and clothes.
Ashley Furniture Mirimyn Small Desk
We see this piece of furniture as more than a desk it would look great in a small kitchen or studio apartment doubled as a dining table. Add baskets with your spices, cutlery, napkins, and plates and you’re good to go. Because of its style, you could really make any kind of chair look nice with it but will want something on the small side. Try:
If floor space is limited, this desk could also be hidden away in most closets. This desk is especially wonderful in small New York City apartments.
Magnussen Home Furniture Pine Wood Writing Desk
At first glance, we actually thought this wooden desk was a dining table and is another perfect dual usage piece. It has a rustic urban style that’s offset with aged iron hardware. The collection it’s from is filled with other statement pieces to complete a whole room. Though not traditional, its counter height desk could make quite a statement in a dining room; how beautiful would your dishes look stacked on its shelves? Pine Wood Writing Desk is definitely something different and unique.
Ashley Furniture Alenya Quartz Loveseat
Simple, clean, stylish, and vintage, this loveseat by Ashley is perfect for small apartment living rooms. Its cushions are firm and its dark colored legs help it to be inviting. While Ashley labels this loveseat as “vintage”, because of its clean style, it would be easy to transform its look with throw pillows and by adding artwork above it. Plus, our customers always get the best prices in New Jersey on Ashley because of our top reseller status with the brand.
Ashley Furniture Cottage Retreat Underbed Storage
While this storage bed is for a kid’s room, it can really work for people of any age. Its cottage retreat style is classic and welcoming. The graphic leaf design panels on its horizontal rails adds a little something special to it. And, there’s that extra storage again. Within its two drawers you can easily store an extra set of sheets and a blanket.
Coaster Furniture Three Piece Breakfast Table and Chair Set
This set is perfect for small spaces and especially nooks. It has a built-in storage space, fold out table for extra space (dining, cooking, working, etc.), and matching chairs. Its casual style in a warm brown color is easy to pair with any home design. Plus, its sturdy shelves can accommodate all your kitchen knickknacks.
