Furniture for a Unique Dorm Room

Just because you are currently living the student life in a dorm room doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your sense of taste and élan. Dorm rooms just don’t have to be stodgy and austere, no matter what the stereotype. And even if they are at first, that doesn’t mean you can’t break the mold and bring your accommodations to a whole new level of modernity and style.

Creating an Atmosphere

It is not difficult to create a unique dorm room based on your personality, sense of purpose, and need for comfort. Furnishing your dorm is great practice for when you move into your future loft, studio, or deluxe apartment. By making this small, seemingly innocuous space into something more elevated, you are also creating an atmosphere that will inspire you to rise to the occasion.

Enhancing an Organized Lifestyle

A good looking, modern, functional dorm room makes it easier to study with its clean lines and efficient use of space, no matter how tiny. At Viesso, we have cultivated the knack of making rooms feel larger through our vast roster of sleek furniture designs. We find that adding a clean and efficient element to your dorm room can definitely enhance and inspire an organized lifestyle.

Feeling Like You’re a Part of the World

With modern furniture that is well designed, it is easy to feel organized, both physically and mentally. And of course this is the state you need to be in so that you can accomplish your mission to graduate and transition to a life in the real world. A good home atmosphere makes it easier to study, while at the same time makes you feel like you are a part of the world and not just a kid chained to a book and a dream.

Designs for Everyday Life

One of the most interesting designers we have in our catalogue of innovators is the appropriately named, Innovation. This company is known for designs made for everyday life. Their furniture is functional, comfortable, and affordable, making their creations just the thing for the student looking for a modular solution to a viable working and sleeping environment.

Environmentally Conscious Materials

Innovation has many years of experience designing furniture that is useful in a modern lifestyle. With their certified environmental profile, they are a great choice for the environmentally conscious person who can appreciate their dedication to separating all their recyclable wastes such as plastic, cardboard, metal, and iron, and using it for other types of production.

Exceptional Furniture

At Viesso, we are proud of the companies we represent, as they reflect our own credo, which is to manufacture exceptional furniture and accessories for the contemporary consumer. As a student, you represent exactly the type of person we design for… someone with a vision and the desire to expand your thinking, knowledge, and vistas in order to help create a better world.

Making the Ordinary Extraordinary

Here are some of our recommendations for making your ordinary dorm room a bit more extraordinary:

Two Great Sofa Beds

Innovation has created two really fantastic sofa beds that we think are crazy perfect for a small dorm room. One is the Little Bird Deluxe Sofa Bed, which is one of the coolest and most stylish pieces of furniture we’ve seen in a long time (besides our own Viesso designs, of course!) This multi-functional beauty is made with an Icomfort 7” mattress that makes for an incredibly comfortable sleep, which of course is what you need after a long day of classes. With chromed steel legs and a loose back pillow that rests against a metal bar, the sofa easily transforms into a twin bed in one easy motion. The Little Bird adds a modern, simple touch that makes any dorm room look like the coolest living space, especially with its white leatherette cover.

The Zeal Deluxe Sofa Bed is another interesting choice, masquerading as a sofa by day and a bed by night. Making your room look larger with its clean lines, it is designed similarly to the Little Bird, but comes with walnut stained legs and a slightly different form. This twin bed is easy to assemble and comes in two colors: basic gravel and basic orange.

The Silenos Sofa Bed

If your room can handle something a bit larger, the Silenos Sofa Bed is a gorgeous alternative. With a mid-century design inspiration, it comes with a back that splits in two, with each side going down independently to create variations on a theme. At night you can sleep like a lamb on a high quality pocket spring system topped with a layer of quality foam and heavy fiber fill. Durable and stylish with an impressive sophistication, the sofa bed comes in begum dark brown or begum sand and is framed in matte black powder-coated metal with wooden legs.

The Reloader

Here’s a great option that Innovation came up with for those of you who like change but can’t afford to buy new furniture when the spirit moves you. The Reloader Sleek Detachable Slip Covered Full Sofa Bed allows you to interchange slip covers whenever you get restless for a new look. Great for perking up a drab dorm room with color, there are many hues to choose from. The sofa is wonderful for stretching out with a book and your notes, and then converting into a full size bed when you’re ready for some shut-eye. With a matte black powder coated metal frame, stainless steel legs, and poly fiber fitted back pillows, your room will look and feel as stylish and utilitarian as can be.

The Cubed Deluxe Chair

Innovation’s Cubed Deluxe Chair is one of the most compact options as it easily converts into a twin bed. Free standing, you can put it anywhere in your room and have a unique touch of modern flavor. In white or black leatherette it is easy to clean, which is great for those of you who wolf down the pizza and forget the napkins. On chromed steel legs, the chair folds down easily. With its freon-free foam structure and pocket springs, the seat is 15” high and perfect for everyday and every night use, whether just for yourself, or for that guest whose had one too many and just can’t quite make it home.

The Idle Chair

Now here is a recommendation we just can’t refrain from making. It’s the Idle Chair and we just can’t say enough about it. Somewhere between Italian and Nordic sensibility, this chair will add a classically elegant touch to your abode, inspiring you to do some deep studying as you are embraced by its sides. Sitting on comfort pirelli webbing, high density foam, and feather down is more than a pleasure, and if you haven’t tried it, here’s your chance. With walnut stained wooden legs and covered in ‘mond’ dark grey or ‘peron’ sand, you will demonstrate a sense of style as you create a vision of your future through this stunning piece of furniture that represents maturity and flair.

Combination Tables

No modern dorm room is complete without at least one of Innovation’s Combination Tables. These sturdy, functional tables make a great surface for eating, writing, reading, or just resting an elbow or two. Made of metal, they sport an easy-to-clean lacquered top and sleek chrome legs, and with their simple lines they easily coordinate with other furniture. Coming in varying sizes you can add a spot of color or keep it cool in black or white.


Adding a few accents is a perfect way to soften any austerity that might linger in your dorm room as you begin to add the modern touches so signature to your vision.


An accent pillow creates texture and color, whether it is a side pillow, a throw, or a bolster. At Viesso we have innovative picks that are colorful, fun, elegant, and eco-friendly.


Adding a rug to your environment is another way to warm up the vibe. The Jaipur rug is the perfect solution when you’ve got a lot of friends stopping by, as it easily stands up to wear and tear. With its mid-pile, soft, thick, static-resistant weave it comes in many sizes, colors, and patterns and can add just the right touch to your modern, streamlined look.
