We all have one goal in mind when it comes to designing our homes: We want to maximize function without sacrificing style. In a tight space, this goal becomes more of a rule. But even if your space only allows for minimal seating, you can have a small statement chair. In most cases, one can be squeezed into a little nook or cranny without taking up too much room, and it will do so much for the look of the space.

Hang Out

Is there anything cooler than a hanging chair? Try one inspired by Scandinavian designs of the sixties. This bent wood wonder features a scooped seat that cradles you while you swing. When space is lacking, think upward. Raising your seat just a bit off of the ground allows you to take advantage of the room underneath—a great place for a colorful and curated stack of books.
