In Vancouver, we’re not strangers to small-space living. Loads of us are raising families in condos, or small houses. Sometimes it feels like furniture manufacturers are working on an entirely different floor plan. Thankfully, there are some great furniture shops in town that cater to our little living spaces.
Sliding walls, ingenious murphy beds, furniture that is more than it seems. This place is a playground for people looking to truly maximize a small condo.

Beautiful collection of mid-century modern furniture. Lots of teak tables, chairs, and more. On the pricey side, but these pieces are incredible and will last for years.

Crate & Barrel’s younger, hipper, and apartment-centric cousin, CB2 has some great multi-tasking pieces. Low stools that can be side tables, poufs that are extra seating or footstools.

Canadian modern furnishings chain EQ3 is a good resource for smaller-scale upholstered chairs and sofas. Great for affordable, yet interesting, lighting as well.
