You can start planning the interiors of your apartment before you even see it, let alone move into it.

Once you have received your confirmed floor-plans, you can choose pieces that will fit perfectly into any nook or corner that you can see.

Here are some of the most adaptable pieces for your new apartment, that will allow you to move them around, or use them for a different purpose than you had planned.


Muuto - JDS Architects Stacked Shelf System

This is the definition of adaptable. In fact, it is its main selling point - these boxes give you the ability to manipulate boxes into position, and are ideal for those who are prone to changing their mind, or those who are moving into a new apartment and want to be able to ‘play around’.


Matt Blatt’s Eames DSW Side Chair Replica

Yes they are popular - but there is a reason for it - they’re adaptable! They can be used as a dinning chair, an office chair, in the living room, or even as a space filler in a corner. Available in a variety of 20 colours with different leg options as well, it is no wonder that Matt Blatt, and the Eames DSW Side Chair are in almost every apartment photo-shoot somewhere. A Japanese belief is that the shadows are the most important and noticeable parts of any space, so why not fill it with a simplistic piece of beauty?


Kyle Schumann’s Spine Chair

This chair is just cool - end of story. Adaptable in a different way, this chair adapts to you, rather than your apartment. Perfect for those who like to relax and lift their feet after a days work, or on a rainy Saturday. The chair moves and adapts to your back position, and is intricately made to handle all spine shapes and sizes.


Feel Seating System Deluxe

Available in red, grey, blue, and brown, the Feel Deluxe is made of 120 soft and extremely pleasant balls. The oversized dimensions gives plenty of room for singles, couples and families. The large dimensions offer plenty of room to sink into and drift away completely. Feel Deluxe has been embraced by the leading architects, interior designers and best design magazines. Whilst this is definitely a “look-at-me” piece, it is extremely comfy, and can be classified as a centre piece to any room.


The Floating Balloon Desk

And now for something completely different… the floating desk. Judging by the image, I am sure you have already said ‘I want one!’ - and the good news is that you can - the bad news is, is that you may have to make it yourself. The desk is easily moved, and is supported to the ground by oversized Jenga planks, and supported by ‘air’ on the other side. A company called Twisted Image finally started production in February. Their job was to fabricate permanent hot air balloons strong enough to carry the weight of the desk. A new type of rubber composite was used to make balloons that were genuinely air-tight and would never degrade, and Caltech were called upon to supply a Heluim/Hydrogen hybrid gas with an atomic weight 150 times lighter than Helium alone. If its within your means, we suggest you do it!
