Eye Candy: 10 Ways To Layer Your Furniture

10 Ways To Layer Your Furniture

Lately I've noticed a trend around the blogosphere - people have been layering their furniture. Coffee tables over ottomans, storage cabinets underneath desks, console tables over stools... the list goes on. And the best part about this concept is that it saves tons of space!

It doesn't appeal to everyone Jeff, that's true... I agree that it's more effective in an open space rather than a small, cluttered one. And thanks for sharing your photo Vinvinvintage, love the combination!

This is my Ikea Lövbacken side tabele layered over a wheeled acrylic media stand I found abandoned on the street. It's kind of a smaller version of the layered furniture from the above's picures. 

I agree that it CAN look messy, -that's why I put a box in it to keep all the clutter hidden..

I understand the concept, but I personally believe this layering makes rooms too cluttered. Maybe if the rest of a room was clean, simple lines and one spot had a layered feature, but this is too much for my sensibility. It could also be that it works better in bigger rooms.
