Welcome to The Deep Dive, in which we search high and low for the best of the best products for every corner of your home, from modern chandeliers to vintage rugs. Next up: furniture for small spaces.

The age-old saying “The best things in life come in small packages” rings true for many things, from jewelry to face creams, but typically not for space-saving home decor. Anyone who has ever lived in a studio apartment can attest that furniture for small homes is rarely the most beautiful, practical, or comfortable…until now.

Time to say farewell to cramped sofas, dressers that barely hold any clothing, and dining tables too tiny on which to entertain. We’ve found the best furniture for small spaces, from lounge chairs to accent stools. Our criteria:  The pieces had to be über-functional, of course, but far from boring. Every find packs a ton of personality into its compact footprint, so much so that your friends with sprawling houses will actually be envious of your mini apartment.
