If using technology at home to separate ourselves from our housemates and families is a bad idea (Hint: it is), then how can we integrate technology into our furniture and interiors to complement our lives? Here are a few pieces we show at Schneiderman’s that can do just this.
I don’t know about you, but at my house there are chargers everywhere. The phone charger in the kitchen, another in the bedroom. The camera charger buried in a drawer (heaven knows where – I have to find that one of these days), and the game/iTouch/iPad chargers in the middle of the floor in whatever room they were last used. I love the idea of a neat and simple solution to control the cords and corral the devices.
This charging dock does not pre-suppose room for a home office. I do love the idea of having everything in one place – and having the cords right in the drawer means I don’t have to look at them. Ever.
A HUGE trend in family room seating right now is power reclining. Not everyone knows this is readily available. But to recline without yanking on a lever is sheer bliss. And it has the benefit of confusing the cat.
