Multiuse furniture allows for a work space, lounge area and guest beds.
An old apothecary cabinet in designer Karen Cole's guest bedroom opens up in several ways, including a drop-leaf desk. Antique twin beds loaded up with brightly patterned throw pillows offer an inviting spot to curl up and read, but can be made up as guest beds within minutes. Bold art and antique rugs contribute to a space that's as cosy and useful for Karen as it is for her guests.
