Sure, a folding chair isn’t anything new, but Vange’s Desile version is. When it’s not seating unexpected guests, the bamboo seat hangs flat as a pancake on the wall like a piece of inscrutably beautiful modern art.
Sometimes a party is too successful for its own good (see: passed out guests on your couch). Kiosk’s folding cot stores flat as a board but is much more comfortable than a night spent drooling on a hardwood floor.
A bright red table on wheels makes an industrial-chic desk during the day and an ample bar during a party. If you need extra room, simply collapse it and stow it away in a closet. Available at drillspot.com, $380.
Bravo for biking to work every day, but asking someone to sit on your banana seat does not a gracious host make. A Citizen Bike folds up into an easily stowable nugget.
