The article focuses on the furniture design suitable for small rooms. Spaces can vary widely and one room may well need a different solution from another in the same home. Consumers can fit modular units together to address storage and display needs or perhaps for a home entertainment system, as new designs incorporate the trend towards flat screen televisions. On the contemporary side consumers are attracted to aluminum, milky glass and high lacquered colored glass and choosing wenge for wood.
