Trend Spotlight: Robotic Furniture


With housing trends moving towards new high rise developments, home-owners/renters are swapping out front lawns and white picket fences for condos offering hotel-like amenities. From loft studios to penthouses, space planning and furniture options for these spaces is evolving to become more efficient to accommodate these new housing options. Tech furniture companies such as Ori and Cityhome have created mutli-facted pieces that maximize space area in small spaces.

So how does it work? These futuristic high end pieces of furniture operate as automated systems that typically house a bed, sofa, workstations, etc. During the day the interchangeable furniture is used as a workstation, when entertaining in the evening it is used a sofa, and at night it transitions to a bed. A diverse piece of furniture like this is so important in smaller housing options because it eliminates the need for static unused furniture. Its perfect for someone who is trying to minimize products/clutter in their home and maximize space.

In a rush? City Home furniture syncs up with Alexa products to control your furniture with voice commands. You can even command Alexa to make your bed, what more could you ask for?


For right now robotic furniture options are limited to the murphy bed/sofa option, pocket closets, and bed to workstations. As the demand for this diverse and efficient furniture grows we will be seeing more innovative furniture options for homes. The automated and interchangeable nature of tech furniture is changing the landscape of space planning for small spaces by maximizing space area with less furniture. Tech furniture is revolutionizing the furniture industry and the future of homes.
