In our small space living adventures we have come to realize the usefulness of multifunction furniture. If a piece can serve multiple uses, it becomes even more valuable to the small space dweller. The CUB8 by Davide Varotto is one such piece. At first glance, it’s… well, a cube. A small stylish low Multifunction Table, the CUB8 looks like the typical modern coffee table. It is constructed of wenge stained oak and contrasting white lacquer. If this were it, we could say it was an attractive piece. The CUB8, however, conceals several secrets. The unit pulls apart to affectively double its size. If you need more space for drinks or perhaps hors d’oeuvres at small space cocktail parties, just slide it apart and you are ready to entertain. Again, if this were then end, it would still be a great piece. In addition to sliding apart, the CUB8 also opens. Inside there is a shelf designed to hold CD’s and DVD’s and also a deeper storage compartment. This is a great multifunction piece. When all you need is a small coffee table, the CUB8 will fit the bill. And when you need more, it will be there with loads of storage and tabletop space. Price: 1,170 euros.
