Small spaces are often among the most challenging for interior designers. When designing commercial interiors with limited space, your design team might encounter some unique challenges. Whether you are working on boutique retail spaces, small hotel rooms, or showroom apartments, here are our favourite pieces from the Clippings catalogue for your small-space projects.
Choosing pieces for small spaces
Accommodating varied uses in a small space can be a challenge as a designer. Selecting the right pieces that provide utility while enhancing your design and delivering a quality space your clients love is a delicate balancing act.
While small spaces can pose difficulties for commercial interior design teams, furniture brands are making it easier than ever to source space-saving pieces.
Some simple interior design tips for small spaces can help designers identify a space-saving piece with ease.
Tips for selecting the right furniture
When working in restricted spaces such as hotel rooms or small apartments, choose furniture that serves multiple functions. Editing your furniture selection down to essential, functional, and beautiful pieces that enhance your client’s overall aesthetic is vital.
From our extensive catalogue, we have curated an edit of 10 pieces of clever furniture for small spaces. Each piece has been selected for its unique ability to maximise space while not compromising on design.
Sculpted from a single steed of powder-coated steel, the cantilevered design of the Mark Side Table is a handy option if there's only a little room next to a sofa or lounge chair. It's produced by Moroso.
The functional shape and bold aesthetic of the Ruff Armchair from Moroso make it an ideal addition to a limited space interior. We see it in the corner of a compact hotel room or the lobby of a boutique hotel.
Inspired by Nordic and Japanese design principles, the Georg Desk from Skagerak is a minimalist addition that adds a designated working place in a hotel room. It could also be used to add a home office in the guest room of a residential project.
A tribute to Bauhaus and Functionalism, the design of Menu's Afteroom Bench is enhanced for small spaces with its end table addition, perfect for small reception areas in an office or hospitality venue.
