queen14When I think about the furniture of the future, the first thing that comes to my mind were the science fiction movies like Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek, and Star Wars where people no longer live in the houses but in the large spaceships. Then I thought of spaceship furniture where some are mobile and can even talk. You might say that it is a far-out idea and that it is too advanced to imagine for now. However, it cannot be denied that the current modern furniture trend that we have right now is actually one of the results from imagining the future. We have seen many futuristic furniture prototypes that have become an inspiration of what furniture can be and should be in the days to come. I am excited to see the possibilities and the direction where the development of furniture would go.
