Over at tree hugger they have some great designs of transforming funiture. I really like the coffee table that becomes a laptop desk or dinner table by your sofa. Great stuff for difficult spaces.

I have 1500 sq feet but i have issues with spacing si ply by how the house’s windows, doors, and stairs are placed. Not to mention it can save you from having to buy 2 pieces of furniture.
