est explores how to maximise livability in modest spaces by choosing the right furniture – from indoors to outdoors.

Compact living is becoming more commonplace the world over, particularly in urban areas. But, how does one maximise small space within modest confines without compromising comfort and quality?

Enlisting the assistance of King, we delve into smart furniture for small spaces. Focusing on three shared areas of the home, we take a closer look at how to optimise space with a combination of well-chosen furniture, clever storage and a light-hued palette.

The Dining Space

Expand the feeling of space in the dining area by selecting furniture with a slimline profile and dining chairs that mirror the height of the dining table. The Quay dining table in either a powder coat or ceramic finish features extendable functionality from six to eight seats for flexibility. The aluminium frame is also multipurpose – ideal for indoor or outdoor applications. The Amara timber dining chairs in smoked oak offer refined simplicity to create a greater sense of space.

The Quay dining table paired with the Amara dining chairs creates elegant sophistication in the dining space. Light-hued walls and cabinetry panelling teamed with blonde timber enhance the openness of the open-plan kitchen and dining area. The Fleur oblong ottoman and Oliver tub chair are also pictured.

Large sliding doors assist with increasing the overall footprint of a room while providing a seamless threshold into the garden area – ideal for entertaining larger groups of guests.

The Living Space

A soft-hued colour scheme enhances space in the living area. As does the large timber slider to neatly conceal unused items. Positioning furniture within the centre of the room optimises square footage while ensuring traffic moves around the perimeter – not through the entertaining zone. The Oliver tub chairs with their swivel base allow for seamless and effortless movement. A multi-purpose Zaza three-seater sofa available in a spectrum of premium fabrics or European leather transitions into a single bed for guests. Ottomans and coffee tables are purposefully chosen in circular shapes to soften the living space.

Statement accessories, including the Crescent ottoman, Apero glass side table and Crescent coffee table, create casual sophistication in the living room. The Fleur ottoman, available in fabric or leather, offers occasional seating without imposing on the overall area.

Minimalist side tables, including the Apero side table with its sleek stem and sophisticated glass top, maximise volume in the room.

Outdoor Spaces

Courtyard spaces expand a home’s modest footprint by providing an additional living or dining area. The Quay II outdoor woven sofa fabricated with a KingCote steel frame and WeatherWeave backing is soft to the touch, yet resistant to the elements – rendering it ideal for the Australian climate. Removable legs permit the sofa to be easily stored away when not in use. The Oasis Pedestal coffee and side table backed by a ten-year steel frame warranty, complement the look.

The Quay outdoor II woven sofa and matching armchairs surround the Oasis outdoor high and low pedestal side tables. The higher Quay outdoor woven counter stools offer an alternative option for a smaller zone. The Jasper sun loungers are also pictured in this space.
