When you don’t have much space to work with, you have to get creative. That’s exactly what Renato Arrigo did when designing this living space in a small apartment for his clients in Italy.

Instead of dividing the already small apartment to create a bedroom, he simply made it so that the bed could be raised off the floor and up to the ceiling.

By raising the bed up off the floor, hidden artwork that says ‘Space is Luxury’ can be seen.

When the bed is raised all the way to the ceiling, it opens up the apartment to have an open living area where the occupants can socialize with guests.
