Furniture for Small Spaces

When you’re furnishing small spaces, the key is to choose smart, hard-working furnishing with trim proportions, plenty of integrated storage and lines that help make the room look larger. Before you start shopping for furniture, evaluate the room and think about how you intend to use it. Measure the areas where the furniture will go and investigate all of your options in terms of style, color and materials. Pottery Barn carries a variety of beautiful solutions for small spaces.


When it comes to choosing the right table, slim lines and multifunctional abilities provide form and function in a small room. Choose stools that double as side tables, such as our handsome Vince Metal-Clad Accent Stool or side tables that offer additional storage, such as our Ludlow Trunk Side Table. Alternatively, look for pedestal tables or tables with open areas on the bottom to keep the floor space more open, which gives the room a larger look. For example, our Tanner Nesting Side Tables come in several finishes and a sleek design to maximize your available space while giving you enough table area to place decorative items, lamps, books or drinks in the living room or family room. In a small dining room, our Benchwright Fixed Dining Table and Banks Extending Pedestal Dining Table add warmth without adding clutter to cramped spaces, while our Ava Dining Table features a thick glass top and geometric base with slim proportions and refreshing style.


Rounded furniture and pieces that feature compact dimensions encourage optimal flow in tight spaces. Look for furniture with sleek lines and a slim profile to avoid adding bulk to already cramped quarters. In the living room, consider our Cameron Roll Arm Upholstered Sofa with Reversible Chaise Sectional for a plush seating area that doesn’t take up too much room, or one of our sleeper sofas for multifunctioning furniture that proves that living room furniture doesn’t have to take up a lot of room to provide comfort and style. The simple lines and compact design of our Lexi Upholstered Sofa and armchair fit neatly into your room while our classic button tufted pieces such as our Tudor Upholstered Mini Sofa and our vintage-inspired Carolyn Loveseat, which features distinctive button tufts and an armless design. Add accents such as pillows or blankets for a splash of color and texture.


Small bedrooms benefit from furniture that doubles as storage. Many of our beds include under-bed storage, including our Stratton Storage Platform Daybed and our Cynthia Upholstered Storage Bed. Prevent your small bedroom from becoming clutter by choosing night tables with integrated drawers or shelves. Our Julia Bedside Table offers rounded lines and the benefit of a drawer and a shelf. For sleeker, more traditional lines, our Chloe and Fairfax bedside tables offer a little more table space for stashing your books, alarm clock and a table lampIn the home office, our slim desks leave plenty of space for extra touches. For example, our Cassie Desk and matching Cassie Rolling Cabinet add a smart look to the office while our Knox Metal Desk with Hutch and Ava Desk with Drawers provide storage and enough workspace for accessories, lamps and open areas for tackling your office jobs.
