5 Chic Styles for Small Spaces

You’ve asked and we’re answering. Which Nathan Anthony styles can we choose for small spaces?  With the growth of urban populations up 54% since 1960 according to the World Health Organization, and more people opting for lofts, apartments and bungalows, the need for space-saving furniture is a hot topic. According to Home Furnishings Business, when selecting furniture for the home, most people start with upholstery and select pieces like side tables, ottomans, rugs, lighting and art to coordinate. We’d like to suggest five pieces from our furniture collections that help maximize both space and spunk in small urban dwellings.


A light and airy modular design, the Gobi collection offers soft comfortable pillow-style seat and back cushions, and lots of storage area for underneath the frame. The 84″ wide Gobi bumper sofa, with an arm on one side and an open bumper, allows extra seating. For added comfort, add the Gobi ottoman and slide it up against the bumper sofa and you have comfortable lounge seating for lots of guests. You can also move the ottoman behind the sofa for extra room when not in use. Want it smaller? Try our Gobi armless 65″ sofa for wide open seating.

Now, for the bedroom! Our Gobi bed uses minimal space and offers storage underneath. You can even hide a mattress under there – this acts like a modern-day trundle. A great feature about our Gobi, is it’s customizable! Request a quote for smaller or bigger depending on your design project.



A tiny abode can have a large open feeling if the furniture is chosen wisely. The 64″ wide Lexxi chaise or 86″ sofa, maximizes space and is elegant and versatile for traditional or contemporary decor styles. Add two 24″ wide Ansonia chairs for an elegant companion piece.



Genoa is a strikingly stream-lined design, with non-removable back cushions, that comes 60″ or 77″ wide mid-sofa (would be 2 over 2 cushion configuration). Genoa can also be made into a sectional with multiple configurations.  Best part? Genoa can be ordered with a sleeper to accommodate wanted or unwanted overnighters. Add two Astro ottomans, 19″ or 25″ diameter, to hold a handsome tray of after-work hors d’oeuvres. The Genoa sofa was co-designed with Lauren Mishaan.


The Ellen daybed, at 76″ wide, sofa, with open half-back, is a clever solution to creating a sense of space to a, well…space :). It can be custom sized and can be ordered tete-a-tete. Put Ellen under a window or place it diagonally in the center of the room where it becomes the centerpiece. For a fun pop of style, add two (or four!) Boxx 18″ ottomans in hair-on-hide and anyone can find a seat!

The Enya collection offers an updated Belgian-style for more contemporary rooms. Specify a 68″ mid sofa or an armless, at 84″ sofa, for tight quarters. Add a sleeper unit and you have a versatile but soothingly elegant seating solution.
