Though they did not make my shortlist but I love these amazing hacks as well. They are among the most interesting, functional and well-crafted in 2012. Hope you like them as much as I do. Here goes:
Condo Perfect baby changing table - collapses to hide behind a door, flips open for a full sized changing table.
Lack shelf into coffee table - Great new use of the ubiquitous shelves. And nothing is wasted.
