These modular children’s dressers by Chigo made me look. Comprised of stackable pieces, this system can grow as tall as you like, which is a great way of adapting kids’ furniture to an adult life. The design is neutral enough and the colors are just happy enough to be innocuous in a grown up bedroom. Each modular piece fits fine as a stand-alone object set up side by side or around the room. And if you want to build a taller configuration, the units fit perfectly one above the other. A must have for a small apartment, where often the only way to expand is up.

This minimalist dresser caught my eye not only because of its simple and aesthetically pleasing form. It opens in both directions, which makes it an ideal room divider for a small space. The Yabane dresser, created by Paris-based design studio A+A Cooren, was revealed during Milan Design Week. An inspiration for the piece came from the traditional ‘Yabané’ Japanese graphic pattern (meaning ‘arrow’ in Japanese). Made from ash wood.
