Convertible Crib: All-in-One Chair, Table & Bookshelves


Children notoriously grow out of things quickly, from clothes and shoes to furniture and furnishings. This clever transforming furniture design by YiAhn follows a growing child, adapting from year to year as they age and providing both a discount for parents and continuity for a young one.


Each stage corresponds to a cycle of early life, from an at-birth-ready bassinet for an ifant to a toy bin and book shelf for a toddler and, finally, a small desk and chair set for a growing child.


While there is nothing overly impressive about the aesthetic of this set of objects at any phase of their design, they are certainly functional and scaled to be the right size for each target purpose – a design idea well worth considering for parents trying to save space and money without being too cheap.
