5 SUPER VERSATILE IDUS PIECES THAT YOU CAN KEEP REPURPOSING!
From dining companion to bedroom partner!
Our Milano Drawers are a case in point. Meant to be used as sideboards, they look great in living areas next to the dining table. However, who says you must use them only as intended. They are so stylish, they could make a great chest of drawers in a bedroom. Or even as a vanity dresser! Just hang a mirror on the wall above the drawers!
The trendy and chic Milano is a chest of drawers which elegantly matches your vibrant décor. Designed using leather, the stylish furniture item employs modern design sense and smart design rules.
Reincarnation is in!
From coffee table to trendy dresser—the Canvas Coffee Table can make reincarnation a breeze! This would look simply fabulous in your bedroom with a mirror on it. Hang up the mirror on the wall or just tilt it at an angle against the wall. Arrange your exotic perfumes, silver hairbrushes and your knick-knack trays. There! You have a dressing table that’s distinctly vintage and extremely stylish. Your girlfriends are going to wish they had thought of this!

Names don’t mean a thing!
What’s in a name, said the poet and wasn’t he spot on! Calling a pouf a pouf doesn’t mean it can’t grow up into a coffee table. The Philapao pouf can easily be reimagined as a plush coffee table—just put a tray on it with some art books, a vase of flowers and a shell or two and voila! You have a unique centrepiece! Call it serendipity or just smart planning, but you’ll have a winner on your hands.
