Look for nesting furniture and built-in storage so that nothing appears strewn and scattered all around as clutter can have a negative visual impact on the décor. Use the upholstery in solid colors and crisp fabrics to transform the look and feel of the spaces to a great level. Don’t look to replace or redo the furniture and rather select the wall color that either matches with that of furniture or blend in perfectly with the ambiance.
Aiming to help users stay connected at all times, IKEA is to launch a wireless furniture collection with incorporated induction-charging stations. The new range consists of bedside tables, lamps and and desks, each item integrating subtle white charging pads. How does the system work exactly? According to the official press release, the wireless charging pads “use transmitter and receiver coils to generate a magnetic field which induces a voltage in the receiver coil. The voltage can then power a smartphone or recharge its battery simply by resting a phone on the Qi pad. Once placed on the pad, a notification pops up to alert the user the device is charging.”
