These New Ikea Products Are Going To Free Up SO Much Space

Ikea just knows the way to our hearts. Month after month, the Swedish furniture giant comes up with new products that we didn't even know we needed in our lives. Case in point: Its fresh offerings for April — an array of smart and multi-functional designs that will solve any small-space dilemma.
The collection is the brand's answer to "fluid living," which means having furniture in your apartment that can be deconstructed, folded up, and moved around on a dime. Aimed towards young people living with limited square footage (hello, us), this new batch features a cool, industrial look done in materials like lacquered metal and wood. Many of the new releases are made of wired mesh, which means you'll be able to optimize vertical space by hanging up idle objects. Click through to read all about the cleverest storage solutions from the label's latest lookbook, and be prepared to make room for them — so you'll be saving even more room.

Portable wardrobes are always a good call for tiny bedrooms. This textile wardrobe is the result of a brand collaboration with a tent company, and gets steadier as its contents fill up. So go head and load it up with winter coats.

Inspired by research they did in Amsterdam, the Ikea product development team and designers created this pouf, which is easier to move around than an ottoman and will cozily fit two people. They even come with handles, so you can hang them up when not in use.

We're big on under-bed storage, but it didn't even occur to us that couches can do double duty, too. The shelving under this sofa is an ideal place to store books and shoes.
