With shrinking living spaces, packing all kinds of furniture in a small apartment can be a little problematic. However, there are some pieces of furniture that cannot be missed, no matter how small the living area is. This is where multifunctional things come handy. Milan-based designer Emanuele Magini has created a sofa, bed and a chair christened as Sosia.

There are certain furniture items available in the market that serve both as a sofa and a bed. Sosia also offers the comfort of a sofa and a daybed but with a twist. Designed for Campeggi, an Italian brand, it comes enveloped in a wall made out of fabric. Sosia consists of two seats that endow you with a flexibility to swap it into different furniture items sans any difficulty.

Feel like catching on your forty winks, simply bring together the two seats and it will give you the comfort of a day bed with a wall wrapped around it for extra privacy. While you were sleeping, the doorbell rings and you see it is your friend standing at the door. Oops! The daybed is still there. Fret no more! Simply convert it into a two-arm chair or a sofa and enjoy the comfort of seating in no time. Sosia can also be used to create a private space in a larger room, thanks to the fabric wall. The wall can either be zipped up or creased down around the seat back.

Sosia is many things clubbed in one that can be altered as per ones whims and fancies. It is full of life, ready to give you all the warmth that too in a sheltered manner and will gracefully gel with everyone’s lifestyle.

4. The Portean Chair


Our mood varies as per the situation. Well, nothing new, however, keeping this in mind, a furniture manufacturer developed a very ‘moody chair’. This new chair adjusts according to our mood. Designer Justin Porcano came up with this brilliant idea. The chair is called the Protean chair.

The cool concept banana chair can be rearranged as a love seat for the time when we want to be together. If you get pissed or don’t like each other you can obviously split the chair and the center table will come up in that case. Yet another aspect of this chair is that it can be flipped towards each other so that the duo sitting on it can converse.

I think this is a great design concept! Justin has created a unique chair that fits the bill of a newly married couple. I am pretty sure single people can also afford this chair. Justin has done a great job with this chair.

Overall, it’s an awesome piece of furniture that adds to the decor of your home. Unfortunately, we haven’t got the pricing information, however, it’s not the price always, but comfort and style also matters.
