Convertible multifunctional furniture is a great idea for a tiny house. This particular example takes into account the occasional need for additional table or work space and still provides a simple seating option for one or two people when that need has passed.

It’s nice to see more designers thinking along these lines. Read more about this table at dornob. Photo credit to EcoSystems Furniture, the maker of this table/bench.
