Kitchens, living rooms and dining rooms are three core spaces that every home needs in some form, but their uses often overlap and are not always easy to fit into small apartments – hence the dinette, kitchen bar and other combination interior design ideas. This transforming furniture concept design dubbed the CookLounge by its creator explores ways of integrating all three of these places into one, a perfect way to maximize free space in small studio apartments and cramped condos.
A hidden cooking area is tucked behind sliding enclosures that can be shut to provide extra space for dining or a seatback for lounging. A table moves up and down on a track, doubling as a dining or a coffee surface. The seats themselves can be freely positioned and conerted for relaxing or eating and their backs can be adjusted for sitting upright, laying back or anything in between.
