The world’s collective experience in the past two years has been more than enough to get anyone to rethink about their home, especially if they live in more compact spaces like condos or apartments. Recently, people have learned about the value of enhancing their spatial experiences at home and carefully aligning it with their lifestyle.

Futuristic living room. UST sophomore students are presenting a living room concept that cleverly pulls off an intimate and cozy space that’s as functional and efficient as one would want it to be. Future living for this young team is all about aligning with the needs of an urban home by maximizing functionality of areas with more limited spaces, and combining an inviting atmosphere with energy efficient design.
Their inspiration is a luxe high-end space in “dark mode” that’s a reaction to the fast-paced urban lifestyle, that incorporates technology in homes to enhance the physical and mental health of its owners. Key highlights include multi-functional and ergonomic furniture from Natuzzi, a massage chair slash personal assistant from Ogawa, and mood lighting from True Value. The living room design also ensures room for recreational activities and sufficient storage for a clutter-free space with brands like Cutting Edge, La-Z-Boy, Ashley Furniture, Bang & Olufsen, Restoration and Yankee Candle.
