The livingroom of the future is “eco-flexible”
Most people would probably imagine the family home of tomorrow as high-tech, functional, and aesthetic. Perhaps it is possible today for progressive home-owners to design a living room that would easily fit into such a house. Grab a cushion and settle into your couch to imagine your living room in the future.
Living rooms will be described as “eco-flexible” and will be evolving spaces with interchangeable functions. They might feature sliding Japanese partitions, which allow for the separation of the room’s different functions. These doors are adaptable to big and small rooms alike. The other accomplice in this revolution is the bed — yes, in the living room! The cumbersome, obsolete sofa-bed is replaced by the retractable bed, hidden away in the wall or floor and detracting nothing from the character of the living area.
Fusion with nature
LED lighting and floor coverings made of plant fibres are part of the trend towards eco-friendly décor. Wood grain will also be found on walls thanks to wallpapers inspired by nature. Manufacturers will become more and more creative with raised designs thanks to the amazing precision of laser technology; the texture of the paper will compete with the real thing.
Decorative and functional at the same time, the television of the future is conspicuous by its dual purpose screen. When the television is switched on it will show high-definition images just like any flat-screen TV. When it’s switched off though, this television is transformed into a mirror.
