Moving furniture around the house is something we all do from time to time. It’s a way to rejuvenate a room and change the mood without actually bringing anything new into the mix and without investing money.
This kind of flexibility sometimes takes on a new meaning with pieces such as bar trolleys, trolley cabinets, chairs or tables. Furniture on wheels can take many shapes and is useful in many ways, whether it’s just a simple cart you can push around or something completely revolutionary like a bespoke, modular collection of chairs, benches, tables and everything else a room need to be both accommodating and functional. Below you can find our top ten favorite designs from this category.
Of course, coffee tables on wheels are one thing and what a cool feature they are! It is very convenient and practical to be able to easily move the coffee table, especially when it is quite large and heavy. The stylish piece of furniture is made from a combination of solid and manufactured wood, and it is filled with storage inside its two drawers as well as the modules on the sides. It also has four small sliding doors that give it a really cool aesthetic.
If you prefer a coffee table with a circular top, do not worry because they can also be put on wheels. Check it out Brien board which has a simple and elegant design that mixes rustic and industrial elements. It has both a spacious top and a matching shelf at the bottom which can be used to store and display a few things conveniently. The frame is made of powder coated iron that fits nicely with the wood.
It is not only typical furniture that can be made more comfortable by putting on wheels, but also more specific things such as. A birdcage. If you have some feathered friends in your life, upgrade them to this spacious one Bremer bird cage. It’s nice and big, but it’s also quite heavy and luckily it’s fitting, which lets you move it around with almost no effort. It comes with wooden sticks, cups and trays, and it fits well with pigeons and most parrots. It also comes in several colors.
There are several occasions and scenarios when a desk or table is needed, but only for a certain period, after which it simply takes up space. If this is something you are familiar with, consider a model like Flipper, a very practical table that can be easily folded and stored away, and which also has wheels so you can easily move it. Unlike other folding tables, which are quite flimsy, it has a strong construction, and it is really comfortable to use.
We are now switching back to coffee tables because there are just so many wonderful designs to check out, like Loehr, which has an inspired design from the middle of the century. It has a rectangular top and a solid structure with two built-in drawers that you can use for storage.

The base has wheels, so you never have to break your back and try to move this table.
That Epp coffee table has a really cool design inspired by industrial wagons. It’s actually like a mini-cart with actual moving wheels. The combination of wood and metal gives it a very distinctive character, and the design is a perfect blend of looks and functionality. Add this to your living room to give it a bit of vintage appeal.
That Backfield coffee table has a rustic charm with a little industrial flair. It is made of solid hardwood with a beautiful weathered finish and is supported by four rather large metal wheels. These add mobility to the design, but also give it a very distinctive character. In addition, the table has a storage shelf for extra convenience.
Storage is an important part of Carron table design. As a whole, this piece looks a lot like a vintage storage trunk. It has exposed metal fittings and wheels on the bottom which compensates for its heavy and robust structure. The top is lifted up into three separate sections that reveal storage modules inside the table. There is also a small drawer in front.
There is another piece of furniture that you can most often expect to include wheels or wheels: the chair. It is desk chairs that usually have mobile bases. That Jovani work chair has a simple, modern and elegant design. It has a fullback with a neckline at the bottom and matching armrests in the same upholstery color. The seat contrasts with the rest of the frame with a darker hue. The base with 5 spokes sits on wheels and has a height-adjustable system for the seat.

The table has a G-shaped structure with an open module at the bottom, which can be used to store and display items in. We make the entire table of clear lucite plastic, which makes it super versatile.
Bar trolleys are designed to be mobile and you can expect most of them to have small wheels. That Lagasse carriage is no exception. What stands out in its case is the simple and smart design given by the use of acrylic posts, glass shelves and a frame of brushed gold steel. This combination of materials and finish gives the car a stylish look.
Let’s move a little outside and check Angie’s patio set, which includes two stylish armchairs and a small table to fit them.

You may not think you need a cart, but just imagine how useful one could be if you actually had one. The Carlota carriage from Tuntum is a cool option. It has a simple and timeless design and four wheels so you can easily push it around when serving tea, snacks, drinks or even meals. It has a small shelf on one side, a tray on top and a good amount of storage inside for bottles, plates, glasses and other things.
This is Carlo, a bar cart with a super relaxed and friendly design. It is also very versatile. You can use it to serve drinks or a basic serving table, and you can store it in the kitchen where you can use it as a small island or a side table or some sort. This rattan cart contains 8 built-in openings for bottles and a bottom shelf. It also has small wheels, so you can easily move it around.
The cart is a cart with a design that emphasizes the wheels in the sense that they are huge. However, this does not make it look disproportionately large. In fact, the design is very healthy and quite elegant and modern at the same time. The trolley comprises three sections: the trays that double as storage shelves, the metal structure that acts as a handle, and the wheels that hit everything very artistically.
A desk on wheels can also prove to be very useful. Go-Cart rolling desk is a cool example in this sense. We make it of metal with a black powder coated finish so the wheels actually fit it well. Given the overall design, shape and size, this is not specifically designed to function as a desk. We can also use it as a console table or even as a serving table or cart with a simplified look.
Carts are not the only things that are more practical with wheels on. To diversify our options a bit, let’s look at the stylish Shoji wardrobe, which has a simple yet sophisticated design with a transparent glass frame, a wooden storage module at the bottom and mirrored sliding doors. You can get either in a fixed version or with wheels.
Usually it is not so often that you have to move the dining table, at least not if you have a dedicated dining area. However, this is not always the case, so a table on wheels can prove very practical and user-friendly. Check out the flat table that has fixed legs on one side and the wheels on the other. It is actually a very versatile piece of furniture that can easily serve as a desk. It comes with either a white or a black top and matching wheels.
Colonial Trunk Bar is another cool piece of furniture that maximizes storage and functionality very elegantly. With closed doors, it looks compact and is actually quite small. Open the doors and you will find a surprising storage space for bottles, glasses and everything else. The wheels allow you to move the bar as needed.
Architect Peter Košťálov took the idea of furniture on wheels to a whole new level when he renovated a small apartment in Manhattan and completely changed its layout and the way it was to be used. Originally, the apartment had two bedrooms, a living room, a kitchen and a bathroom, and although it sounds like a reasonable space, it was not as all the rooms were small. The new design opens up the spaces and uses movable furniture on wheels to ensure a flexible and more adapted layout, and an airy, fresh and spacious look throughout the apartment.
Wheeled furniture was also the perfect solution for this cool office space, like Impuls designed for the WFP Innovation Accelerator, in Munich, Germany. The company wanted a work environment that would be flexible and modular, able to accommodate both long-term employees and colleagues who visit the office from time to time. This is what the setup looks like.
