Maximising space in a tight, black-on-black apartment with clever furniture design, Consumer News & Top Stories

Ask any homeowner and most will tell you that their favorite piece of furniture in the house is the ubiquitous sofa. After all, few can resist lounging on a sofa watching the latest drama on Netflix or blinking 40 times after consecutive virtual meetings.

Homeowner Louie Tan, who moved to his new two-bedroom condo after the breaker period, agrees. The bachelor added a legendary sofa from KING and several other pieces of furniture to his living space.

A modular sofa for different settings

For him, a day of lazing around or for a few friends is part of his lifestyle. His Felix Studio sofa bed from KING is the main source of relaxation and entertainment. The sofa is the heart of the living room and goes perfectly with a full-length black painting and off-white rug.

The Felix sofa is a versatile accessory. With the push of a button to activate the TouchGlide® Control technology, the seat and bed can be extended for a more relaxed lying position. Both can also be retracted to maximize space when not in use.

As a self-proclaimed tech junkie, Mr Tan has customized his sofa by integrating smart accessories such as a smart LED reading light that can be rotated 360 degrees, which he can use to read magazines or catch up on work with his tablet.

He also installed swivel tables on the sofa arms so that they turn into an easily accessible table for drinks and a charging station for his mobile devices.

When not in use, these additional accessories can be neatly stowed in the sofa unit so that they do not take up any additional space.

For larger families, the KING range offers options such as the characteristic Jasper sofa. It offers both comfort and functionality and is available in different sizes. It can be configured in various settings – regardless of whether you want to set up a small living room or a spacious lounge.

Due to its modular design, the back and armrests can be easily removed and exchanged to create different seating configurations for the same sofa. It can be arranged as an L-shaped sofa or divided into sections for a party-friendly setup.

The Jasper Metro, a compact version of the Jasper sofa, can also be easily converted from an L-shaped sofa into a comfortable bed for two.

The KING sofas are equipped with a high-quality, precision-cut steel frame that is welded into the sofas for a long service life. With a 25 year warranty on steel frames, the solid structure provides a strong foundation for the sofa and offers users flexibility to meet their various lifestyle needs.

Striking bedroom furniture that maximizes space

For a good night’s sleep, Mr. Tan relies on his promenade bed from KING.

The black head forms the perfect contrast to its white walls in the bedroom, while the complementary upholstered bed base exudes timeless elegance. Hanging a contemporary art painting over the bed helped Mr Tan achieve the modern, minimalist look he wanted.

With its large storage space under the mattress and the easily lifted hydraulic system, the promenade bed keeps the bedroom clear and minimalist.

Similar options are KING’s classic Neo bed and the luxurious Jasper bed.

Those who want to combine their bedroom furniture with their interior can opt for the former. Equipped with legs made of wood veneer, there are a number of high-quality wooden surfaces: walnut, a light brown shade; Wenge, a deep, rich brown; or Congo, a classic black wood.

The Jasper bed is designed to be the focal point of any bedroom as its low, wide edge is part of a sleek design that will maximize your sleeping space. Thanks to the gesture-controlled bedside table lighting – the Lume Light – and the wireless charging function, you can read in bed and at the same time store your favorite objects discreetly at hand in one of the integrated wooden side tables with hidden storage space.

The selection of KING furniture is rounded off by Mr. Tan with his ETO desk. Since he now spends more time working from home, he decided to upgrade.

The stylish collaboration between the award-winning furniture designer Tom Fereday and KING is spacious and unique and integrates a side table, intelligent lighting and wireless charging like the Felix sofa. In this way, the overall appearance of your home office remains elegant and streamlined.
