Roommate dining: 2 dining tables used 3 ways

01 August 2015

It’s not just for students anymore; more and more people are choosing to share living space to cut down on costs in cities. So in this year’s catalogue, there’s a lot of ideas, like this one, designed especially for housemates. Using two lightweight tables provides a lot of flexibility for doing all the things you like. This T set-up, for example, is ideal for an impromptu brunch with friends.

Doubling up


When pushed together like this, there’s a bit more room to move around in the rest of the apartment. And it’s an ideal spot for working, eating breakfast, or doing both at the same time.

Instant workspace

Because they’re lightweight, these tables are easy to move around. So when you need a bit of privacy or just some more room for painting or doing yoga, it’s no problem to separate them and push them up against the wall.
