Looking for transforming furniture for small spaces? Here are some options with furniture that lives large to maximize space in a room.

Need extra storage? Or a workstation that doubles as a coffee table? Here are 8 different options for transformable furniture.

Remember transformers?

They were amazing.

There was a robot that turned into an airplane.

And a truck that turned into a flying machine.

And a bird that turned into a motorcycle.

But as incredible as all that is? You know what’s even more stupendous?

Transforming furniture.


Furniture that starts life as something and then you blink. And it turns into something else. It’s kind of amazing for small spaces. Transforming furniture is perfect for smaller spaces and apartments and places that don’t have a lot of room. You don’t need a lot of furniture when your furniture is doing double duty.

I just added some new pieces to my family room.

Want to see?

Oh, good.

They look like this.

Isn’t that the cutest table?

You just pull up the top and it turns into a desk to write on or a table for snacks or a place to play games or work on puzzles or a workstation.

It’s SUCH a good value for the price.

The top is so solid and there’s TONS of storage inside the top. The mechanism to pull it up is really solid and has good construction. There are faux handles on both sides of the coffee table and it measures 43in W x 21in D x 18in H.

You can see how pretty the wood grain is in this picture. It’s literally one of my favorite new pieces for the house.

It looks like higher-end pieces I have seen at a fraction of the price.

But it’s a transformer, too.

    Your living room table, all farmhouse-y, looks like it's smiling. I guess that's what you do when you hide a secret, right?

    I am accused of buying a lot of furniture. Or replacing perfectly good furniture. Hmmmm maybe I could use your blog as an excuse for doing it.🤣 all lovely itels. Thank you for sharing.

    I'm sure you cringe when someone asks where you got small random items in the photos but.... the greenery on the table at the corner of the two couches, is it eucalyptus? And is it a "bush" that you just spread out? It looks great!

    That's an amazing price for that lift-top coffee table. A friend of mine ordered one a number of years ago and paid about four times that amount.

    My sister has a similar coffee table and it's genius! Another furniture item that I saw at a local furniture store was one of those tables that goes behind your sofa. It had a hinged top and the idea was that it could be a sofa table some of the time and unhinged, it was a dining table. For people who are short on space but who occasionally want to host guests, it's a great idea. I have a fascination with transformer furniture!
