1. Multifunctional Spaces
The ‘new normal’ of 2020 has changed the way we approach everything from home to work. Our homes are no longer merely homes – they are also offices and classrooms. The way we furnish our houses needs to change accordingly. Living rooms are now multifunctional areas in which space needs to be maximised and dual-purpose furniture are needed.
