1 – Utilize and maximize.

People’s interest in home furnishing has given birth to a field of engineering that uses minimal space to maximize usage. If you have been to (or live in) a city of the magnitude of NYC, then making efficient use of limited space is a growing concern for you and a million others. Home décor experts have developed furniture sets that can cater to this for more than one purpose. A sofa set that transforms into a full-fledged bed at night or a snack table can be used as a mid-level room partition when required! These furniture sets are must-haves in regions where the per capita house rates are normally out of control.

With the first 3D-printed structures already in Dubai’s operation under a commercial license, more and more cities are switching to this latest marvel in structural engineering. In June 2018, Eindhoven University announced a medium-scale project for 3D-printed housing, which will be rented out upon completion. Whether or not this innovation sustains will be the talking point of future discussions.

5 – Brass never gets old.

Retro is making a comeback, with the brass trend creating a lot of buzz. Thanks to its rust-gold look, brass promises to revamp your house’s trendy decor with furniture sets and classic handiworks. Even though brass was the go-to fashion in the ’70s, the nostalgia has re-developed the love for this alloy with even unused accessories like dummy telephone sets and gramophones splashing royalty all over the house. With all these innovative ideas in hand, embrace something that lights more fire in your heart and less in your pocket.
