The PLAYplay collection by Lanzabecchia + Wai for Journey East features the Bazaar desk, a compact writing surface with built-in shelves that can be accessed from both sides of the piece.

Ercol reintroduces the Originals Drop Leaf Table, which first launched in the 1950s. The elm-and-beech table has two folding flaps, which easily expand to seat four.

Suitable for indoor or outdoor use, the portable Balad lantern by Tristan Lohner for Fermob is ideal for flexible living arrangements.

Clei's Kitchen Box looks like a cabinet when closed, but it swings open to reveal a full kitchenette, with a cooktop, sink, refrigerator, dishwasher, and microwave.

Sconces that don't take up floor space are ideal for small spaces: Muuto's new Lean wall lamp by Claesson Koivisto Rune is a nice sculptural option.

Stash a stack of Milà chairs in the hall closet for extra seating. Jaime Hayon's design for Magis, made of plastic, achieves its sculptural form through gas-injection molding.

Hangar by Neri&Hu for Offecct contains entryway clutter—the slim metal form is a place to hang coats or bags, with a base of recycled stone that serves as a catchall for other odds and ends.

Inga Sempé designed the ribbon-wrapped Ruban mirrors for HAY. Move them from room to room, or keep them fixed on the wall to save floor place.
