Flexible and innovative, these furniture designs are ideal solutions for hosting in small spaces
If you live in a small apartment, particularly a shoebox apartment, then finding solutions to fit in a group of more than 10 people comfortably in the home can be a challenge. Smootree has now made available these innovative furniture collections from Taiwan and Italy to cater to this specific need.
Made of wood and paper, the expandable Flexiblelove is your answer to accommodating your guests comfortably this holiday season. Flexiblelove can be stretched like an accordion and adjusted to suit the confines of your interior, making it a dynamic piece of furniture that is extremely versatile. When not in use, it can be pushed back and stowed away conveniently, or used as single or double seating.
So how many people can a FlexibleLove accommodate? The expandable chairs come in either 8-, 16- or 20-seaters. FlexibleLove Earth Series, made of entirely of 100% post-consumer recycled paper and 100% post-industrial recycled wood waste, is available in 8- or 16-seaters. FlexibleLove Virgin Series is made from virgin kraft paper and post-industrial wood waste, and is a solely 20-seater piece that is also limited edition. FlexibleLove White Series is catered for those with a penchant for white furnishings, and is made from white kraft paper and painted wood sides. It is available as a 16-seater piece. The furniture pieces are also surprisingly strong. For instance, the 8-seater is able to support up to 960kg.
In addition to FlexibleLove, look out for KubeDesign, a brand from Italy that has had more than 30 years of experience in paperboard. The company produces furniture with corrugated cardboard, making them furniture pieces that are not only durable, but also easy to install. The Piega chair is yet another option for those who need additional seating during special occasions. They can be easily flattened and stored when unused. Plus, they make great conversation starters. Aside from chairs, Smootree also carries stools, desks, bookshelves and drawers from KubeDesigns. All are made with corrugated cardboard.
