ACME Calnan Lift Top Coffee Table
We have one of these in our office. This coffee table doubles as a desk, the surface lifts up and out to a distance that makes typing comfortable. The other half slides out so you can store things within it. We use it primarily as a coffee table, but the lifting top comes in useful if you want to place your laptop down or eat a quick lunch. It’s dimensions are 14″H x 47″W x 20″D.
Homcom Coffee Table
A cheaper alternative to the ACME Lift Top is the Homcom Coffee Table, which essentially performs the same function with the lifting top, but has a drawer within it instead of the sliding top. This coffee table’s overall dimensions are 43.25″L x 23.5″W x 17.75″H. Its design and size will help you reduce clutter and get organized.

The dimensions with the table closed are 29″W x 15.7″D x 32.75″H and 29.6″W x 29.1″D x 32.75″H when fully extended.

Full Metal Loft Bed Frame With Ladder
If you’re hardcore about this lifestyle and need space you should consider getting this loft. It supports a full-size bed and has a sturdy frame with enough room for a desk or two-person couch underneath. I used to own this frame, and while climbing down ladder may have been inconvenient at times, it really opened up my studio I don’t think I could have stayed there very long without it.
