As usual I am having a very busy September, and October is starting to fill up as well. I have something on every weekend: friends visiting, short breaks away, working Saturdays, birthday parties: it looks like my first free weekend will be in November!
Apart from the usual work load and intense social life, I am helping a friend redecorate her house.
She has recently separated from her partner and she wants to refresh the look of her apartment (it is actually true, heart broken women willing to start again change their hairstyle or the house style).
Often, in big cities above but not only, the issue is space and budget.
My strategy is to invest in some nice lights and art, in some versatile pieces of furniture and opt for a slim sofa and armchairs to maximize the space.
Mobili Fiver has some key transformable consoles and tables at very reasonable prices. I got my friend an extendable console table that doubles as a dining table, perfect for when she has friends or the large family. The consolle we went for is called First (see photo below) and it measures 90x45x76 cm when closed but it can be extended up to 305 cm and host up to 14 people!
The opening mechanism is uncomplicated and it has 5 easy-to-assembly extensions; according to how many extensions you insert the console can become 149 cm, 201 cm, 253 cm or 305 cm.
The price is very affordable because Mobili Fiver produces in Italy and doesn’t have showrooms or middle men, they just sell online; in this way they can cut costs and have more competitive prices.
The convenience to have an extendable console consists also in the fact that it is easy to carry and it doesn’t take much space.
It can save your life in a holiday house as well, in the terrace or garden; when needed, you can carry it outside easily.
Also the tables from the same brand have linear shapes and the same extendable advantage. Some, like the model “Easy” pictured below, becomes 220 cm long and the extensions can be put under the top of the table when closed; others, like for instance the model “Eldorado” from square (90 x 90 cm) becomes rectangular 180 cm x 90 cm.
It is worth keeping Mobili Fiver in mind, because many of us, despite how big are our houses are, don’t have enough space…or too many guests!
