Some of the best new liv­ing room space savers

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - COVER STORY -

If you’re feel­ing the squeeze in your liv­ing room, you’re not alone. Once you add a lounge, oc­ca­sional chair, cof­fee ta­ble and TV cab­i­net, there may not be much cir­cu­la­tion space left — es­pe­cially if it’s a small room.

Some clever tricks can help over­come that cramped feel­ing. Rather than hav­ing a large cof­fee ta­ble in the cen­tre of the room, con­sider a side ta­ble that can hook over the lounge.

Nest­ing ta­bles have been around for years but they are per­fect for en­ter­tain­ing and a fan­tas­tic way to save space the rest of the time.

Shelv­ing takes up min­i­mal space while of­fer­ing stor­age, while ot­tomans with hid­den stor­age in­side are an­other great op­tion.

Lounges are inevitably the largest piece of fur­ni­ture in a liv­ing room so it’s worth tak­ing a look at the op­tions avail­able and con­sid­er­ing ones with built in stor­age.

While it might seem coun­ter­in­tu­itive, a mod­u­lar lounge is of­ten a great way to pro­vide max­i­mum seat­ing in small spa­ces rather than sep­a­rate lounges.

De­signs for mod­u­lar lounges have con­tin­ued to evolve and be­come more so­phis­ti­cated to in­clude built-in side ta­bles and con­cealed stor­age.

The new Jasper 2 from King Liv­ing (pic­tured at right) in­cludes the op­tion of swivel ta­bles and a float­ing shelf and me­dia con­sole in the mid­dle of the sofa.
