Multi-functional furniture makes small (and not-so-small) spaces a little more livable. Need a place to sit, set your coffee, or house your collection of paperbacks?

- Three ‘book-objects’ created by Alexander and Daria Kudmova Butahinoy of the Moscow-based Ruetemple Architectural Studio offer ways to store books and save space.
- French luxury furniture retailer Roche Bobois turned 50 this year, celebrating this milestone with a retrospective at their Madison Avenue showroom.
