Offi Paket: box by day, dinner table and chairs by night

If you've ever lived in an apartment the size of a closet (read: living in NYC), then sometimes you look at your sofa or your twin bed or the dining room table and wish you could just fold it up and put it out of the way. With the Paket table by Offi, you actually could. The Paket table and set of four chairs starts as a box, and fans out into a table and four stools.

It's a cute design, but there's a big downside. The table itself costs $500, and the chairs sell for $250 for a pair. That means you're dropping 1,000 bones for a full set.
