If you live in a small apartment, you would know its tough to decorate without having to compromise some space. What more when choosing between tables and shelves. The Deskbox desk-shelf hybrid addresses that so you get both and it doesn't take up any extra space.

The Deskbox, designed by British design team Raw Edges, its meant to create new furniture from old mechanisms. The shelf expands in a way that's similar to a jewelry box, but offers twice the workspace without taking up real estate.
