Sneak in a little extra storage with these ingenious furniture ideas. 

Mirage Hidden Storage Bed

We could all do with extra storage in our homes, but often, storage furniture comes with added functionality at the expense of style. 

With this in mind, we've round up furniture designs which are subtle and discrete in their delivery of storage space. 

Mirage storage bed, from £1,480, Furl

Storage beds are nothing new, but traditional ottoman beds can feel clunky and space-consuming. This beautiful velvet bed from Furl has retained the space under the bed, while also feature a lift-up divan style.
