Uncluttered rooms and open space are the theme for 2015. I've mentioned in point 15 that as apartments and houses are generally becoming smaller in size due to housing shortages and population explosions, the furniture within the house also has to adapt with the size of the house. This trend, in that sense is a double edged sword, where uncluttered and open meets smaller apartments and houses.
We are seeing the use of multifunctional furniture making more of a statement in 2015. Is it a coffee table, storage shelf or a chair? / well it is actually all three and while its design may not be to everybody's tastes this type of furniture is very practical in a modern minimalistic home design. Other types of multifunctional furniture include beds that transform into work desks or chairs that conceal hidden drawers. For a smaller home this type of furniture is certainly something that you should consider.
