The apartment wall table is also used as a room divider

With increasingly smaller houses and apartments, several practical, functional and affordable solutions began to be created and designed by architects and interior designers, in order to better optimize the space in these environments.

After defining the place, write down the measurements of the environment and observe the decoration style of the space, so that it will be possible to be more assertive about the wall table model (folding, retractable, suspended…) and their respective seats ( stools and chairs , beanbags, benches…).
