The furniture that fills our homes is incredibly valuable to us. Not only do we spend a fortune on it to make our homes look the way we want, but we use our furniture daily and need it to be versatile, durable and to fit our family’s needs. One industrial design studio is completely reinventing the wheel when it comes to typical furniture for our homes. VARIA is a collection of six pieces of furniture that can easily be mixed and matched to create 25+ pieces of furniture to save urban dwellers not only living space but also time and money.
This Industrial Design Studio Makes Furniture Multi-Purpose
Your furniture should grow with you, and when you move or your family and needs grow and change, you want furniture that can change alongside with you versus having to go out and hand out a bunch of cash to get something new. The industrial design studio and designers behind this furniture collection were inspired when they were new to apartment living fresh out of college and realizing that every summer there was always piles of furniture sitting out next to dumpsters contributing to landfills. Not wanting to contribute to those piles of trash, but also not wanting to move things they didn’t need, Jamie and Laura came up with a completely new innovative solution to furniture.
Their furniture collection is reasonably priced, plus converts into various pieces of furniture that you’ll find yourself needing in your current home or eventually down the line. For example, side tables and a mirror that can be turned into a desk, or a headboard and side tables that can be converted into a desk.
The industrial design studio and the designers, Laura and Jamie, realized one day that there were several similarities in everyday furniture they used. For example, the size of a queen bed headboard was the same size as a desk surface, or that bar stools were the same height as the kitchen table legs. Their wheels started turning and suddenly they had a whole collection of versatile furniture. A unique innovation that solves so many issues people have with most modern day furniture.
