Gallery: 10 Super Useful Transforming Furniture Pieces Spotted at PSFK’...

Some NYC apartments are so small that they simply can't fit both a coffee table and a desk. Resource Furniture's Flat Desk Coffee Table offers a solutions with a top surface that flips up to double as a desk or even a surface for eating.

For those of us with limited floor space, the Vurv Wall Shelf Desk is an efficient little design that folds up when not in use. It can also be used as a standing desk, which we all know is a great way to improve your chances of not dying early.

Those aren’t clothes hanging on that rack – they’re pieces of furniture! Made by Folditure, these fully functional tables and chairs can folded up and even have hooks for easy storage.

Possibly the world’s most functional shelf, the Fusillo Shelf morphs to become its own set of bookends, and can flip down to hold hanging items like a helmet or even a bike!
