When you think about modern technology, and the way it is improving our day-to-day lives, you probably think about things like flat screen TVs, smartphones and e-book readers. You probably think of better computers and faster cars. It’s unlikely you think about technology much in relation to furniture. When you think about furniture you probably think about comfortable things to sit or lie on. You probably think of furniture as stuff made of wood, which comes in flat-packs, which you put together to keep your clothes in. Sofas and beds are pretty comfortable already. Technology and furniture don’t really mix – or do they?
I think you’d be surprised to discover that they blend very well in the latest generation of TV Beds and Conservatory Furniture.
Firstly, what is a TV bed?
Basically, a TV bed is a bed with a TV built into the foot of the bed. The clever part is that the TV has a lifting mechanism which conceals and reveals the TV at whim. TV Beds are great if you love watching television in bed but don’t have the space for a separate TV set, or would rather it was hidden out of the way. Most TV Beds also come with a remote control which you can use to pop-up, or hide, the TV as and when you desire.
Sounds positively decadent right? This might sound like the kind of expensive luxury which only the very rich could afford and ten years ago you’d have been right. However, modern technology has made flat screen TVs so light and affordable, TV beds are now well within anyone’s price range! A TV bed can give any ordinary bedroom a real feel of modern luxury and comfort and also free up a surprising amount of space. TV beds also supply that clever gadget factor which you just have to show off to your friends and is guaranteed to put a smile on your face every time you make it pop-up or go away!
So how has modern technology caught up with plain old conservatory furniture?
The latest generation conservatory furniture is rattan style but made of PVC. It looks just like the real thing, to give your conservatory and garden that traditional country garden feel, but – because it’s PVC – you can leave it out in the garden and – unlike the real thing – it wont rot! It’s cheaper than the real thing and it will last a lot longer – saving you a lot of money. Also, you don’t need to give it any special care to make it last – like varnishing or polishing. It’s also much lighter than the real thing, so – when the BBQ is over – you don’t need to enlist the help of your guests to put it back in the conservatory.
So there you have it. Modern technology is changing everything around us – including furniture!
