In all of my browsings and findings* on the internet about small space solutions, I think this furniture may be the ultimate design of form and function:
Seriously, I want everything this company makes. It truly is designed to solve spacial problems, as well as the convenience of letting you still live your life. WHo wants a Murphy bed if you have to move everything out of the way every night? who wants a bunk bed if you don't feel the beds are secure and comfortable? There is apparently a showroom in midtown, and I may just be visiting it this weekend. Good design comes with a cost, but if it makes your living space that much more doable, it is certainly a worthy investment.
