As technology gets more advanced, the ways we use it become more embedded in our everyday lives. You may FaceTime with your family on the iPad, for example, then get some work done on a laptop, then go to bed and read an eBook on a phone. As these various gadgets become a part of our homes, the way we need our homes to work changes. Tech-friendly furniture is nothing new, but, until recently, it left a lot to be desired. If you didn’t want your space to look like an office (or a hacker’s den), you might have to figure out how to reverse engineer existing pieces to accommodate tech.
Thankfully, those days are gone. Instead, I’m seeing more and more furniture that works well with technology and looks good doing it. Here are a few pieces at GFM that are leading the way in design-forward, tech-friendly furniture.
Mustang Power Gliding Recliner
While recliners are certainly the most comfortable seat out there, they often are overstuffed and bulky. I’ve written about this recliner before because I love how design-forward and sleek it is. It also comes with a hidden USB port, perfect for charging up tablets and phones. No bulky cables required.
Westport Metal Reclining Loveseat
I love that this loveseat hardly looks like a recliner and can basically can go incognito: It looks like a standard loveseat but can recline with hidden power control in the arm. The light color will also work well in any style living space.
Radius Windstream Power Swivel Glider Recliner
With a slightly rounded shape and pared-back cushion, this recliner brings the minimalist aesthetic of mid-century modern design to a not-so-minimalist piece of furniture. It also swivels at the bottom, making it another great small-space buy: You can reorient your sitting position as needed, whether it’s drinks with friends or movie night.
As always, live beautifully today!
