Space is becoming a problem for every home especially for homes in big and crowded cities, that’s why the idea of creating space saving furniture design like the Ludovico by Claudio Sibille was born.
With the Ludovico, you can definitely maximize the space in your room or home whilst maintaining your home’s contemporary and elegant interior design. The furniture’s concept is very simple. Ludovico is a storage type of furniture with four drawers in it. Within the furniture lines, the designer has custom designed two chairs that fit in it.
If you are not using the table and the two chairs, you can put the table on top of the cabinet, while the two chairs can be inserted on its designated lines. After doing so, you will only see a single furniture and that is the storage cabinet with the chairs creating ab image of four more little drawers.

The cantilevered design of the stool shows the strengths of the bamboo. If you were to look at a bamboo grass, you definitely will not think it can be an elegant material for many things. In addition, you surely will also be surprised of the bamboo’s beauty and strength.

With this capability, one will have the chance to change the look of their furniture pieces and eventually interior design every time they want or need to without the need to buy new pieces of furniture, which will surely require huge amount of money.
If you have bedrooms with limited space, time for you to go for space saving furniture pieces like the Oeuf Sparrow Trundle Bed. Sparrow Trundle Bed is a twin bed that with its trundle, it becomes twice as useful. The trundle will surely save a lot of space because when you opt not to put a mattress on it, it can be your spacious storage for your clothes, blankets, and the like.
