Space Saving Furniture Ideas for Studio Apartments

i) Create separation between the living and the sleeping area by using a few tall shelves in a series that serves as a dividing line

Example: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalo...

ii) Buy a corner desk or table that doesn't take up much space

Example: http://www.overstock.com/Home-Ga...

iii) Also check these websites for some cool ideas:

iv) Utilize space upwards…use a series of hooks, shelves at the eye level around the kitchen walls & large shelf at top of your arms reach.

v) Use a wall-mounted drop leaf table as a standing desk and a kitchen table.

vi) The New York Times had a great story a few years ago about a small apartment in Hong Kong, "24 Rooms Tucked Into One".

What are your thoughts? Any ideas on maximising space in small apartments?
