Top 10 furniture designs to add the ultimate finishing touch to your modern home

What truly makes or breaks a home at the end of the day is the furniture that’s placed in it. The right kind of furniture design can create the essence and soul of a home. And I do feel it’s essential that the soul of our home is a reflection of our own soul. Hence picking furniture pieces that bring out the best in our homes, while authentically representing our personality is a must. There are certain types of furniture that have gained enough popularity to be deemed as trends! These furniture designs are fun, sophisticated, and functional. They add an extra spark to your home, without compromising on utility in the least. From a collection of acrylic furniture to a Japandi-inspired coffee table – these intriguing furniture designs are the ultimate finishing touches your modern homes need!

1. The Hariana Tech Smart Ultimate Bed

The Hariana Tech Smart Ultimate Bed has an integrated reclining massage chair with a remote, a built-in Bluetooth speaker, a bookshelf, a reading lamp, an air cleaning system, an area to plug in and charges your devices, a foot-stool that opens up for extra storage, and a pop-up desk for the ultimate WFH setup, Netflix marathon or cozy reading hours. The sound system also features an SD card slot, an auxiliary port, and a USB port. Another interesting detail about the Hariana bed is a password-protected safe box for you to store your most precious belongings – for me, it would be my passport and snacks!

Why is it noteworthy?

You know how we always have to get up to get stuff before we settle into relax mode? Well, this bed was designed to have everything you will need to relax within your bed frame. It’s the ultimate bed to unwind after a long day at work!

What we like

  • Features a password-protected safe box
  • Sufficient storage spaces integrated into the bed

What we dislike

  • Hefty price tag
  • Unsuitable for homes with space constraints

2. The Norm Model B desk

Given product design trends, most of these desks tend to favor sustainable wooded materials and minimalist designs. Wood, however, isn’t the only thing you can turn into a desk, and the designers over at Norm opted to use stone to create the Model B, the long-lasting and multi-functional desk that could very well be the last desk you’ll ever need.

Why is it noteworthy?

Minimal furniture has become less minimal these days, at least in functionality. While their designs remain simple and relatively blemish-free, even IKEA has started incorporating smart functionality into their minimalist products, especially wireless charging. The Norm Model B desk follows this new trend but takes it to a new level by offering something that fits almost every modern worker’s need as well as that of the planet. It’s the only desk you’ll ever need because it’s something you won’t be throwing away any time soon, thanks to the materials it is made of.

What we like

  • Sustainable
  • Created from a unique material – acrylic stone
  • Features “posture tracking,” wherein the desk analyzes how much pressure your elbows are exerting on the edge of the desk

What we dislike

3. The Cloth Coffee Table


Characterized by its curved bookstand that works as the table’s centerpiece, the Cloth coffee table’s curvy personality is echoed throughout its build. The bookstand also finds a balance between boldness and elegance, offering a weighty centerpiece that helps ground the coffee table, without dominating the available tablespace. Featuring softly bold elements like an undulating table edge that mimics the look of a live edge, the Cloth coffee table keeps a dynamic profile without dominating the room.

Why is it noteworthy?

Doing minimalism before it was cool, Japanese and Scandinavian share a lot of common design principles, including a focus on warmth, groundedness, and a subdued color scheme for an overall calming effect. With aim of merging these principles together to design Cloth, Teixeira hoped to find a “balance between boldness and elegance, depending on the angle.”

What we like

  • An artful blend of Japanese and Scandinavian design philosophies
  • The curved bookstand is a distinguishing feature

What we dislike

4. The Front Stool

Front Stool Design
Front Stool Launch

The Front Stool combines two stools in different materials and thicknesses. The wooden part can either be Walnut or Cypress while the other part is made of High-Density Poly Ethylene (HDPE) material comes in four color options—Light Gray, Crimson Red, Blue Green, or Dark Gray. It comes packed in a small rectangular box with separate pieces secured and organized.

Why is it noteworthy?

Ji Woong Cha noted the importance of designing for a smaller space. A small household cannot hold many items, so a functional shape is preferred. The Front Stool comes with a modern and intuitive design that fits right at the entrance. It’s more than just a stool as it also works as an umbrella stand and support for when you need to put on or take off your shoes.

What we like

  • Functions as a stool, footrest, and umbrella stand
  • You can easily assemble it yourself

What we dislike

5. The Threefold


This modular furniture brings to the users a lounger they can lay back on with support, or it can instantly transform into a low stool for the aged who cannot sit cross-legged on the ground. And when you want to keep your food or a board game you’re carrying along, the Threefold can become a sturdy table. A perfect companion for picnics and camping, the Threefold construction is supported by stretchers and is safe and secure to use.

Why is it noteworthy?

There is frankly no dearth of adaptable furniture for picnics, camping, and outdoor events, but the Threefold presents its own use case, courtesy of its incredible versatility and effortless, timesaving flip in form. This is essentially true since the traditional mats we carry to the outdoors are limited in form. The fabric mats would offer more comfort, versus a semi-wooden mat as the Threefold, however, it has limited application. If you’d have realized, it excludes a section of users who cannot sit on the ground from convenience and comfort, compelling you to carry an additional folding chair. The conceptual Threefold outdoor furniture here extends adaptability to each individual’s needs in one useful unit.

What we like

  • Transforms into a lounger, stool, and coffee table
  • Safe + sturdy design

What we dislike

  • Not very aesthetically pleasing

6. The 4PM Chaise Lounge Chair


Comprised of flat and curved features, the 4PM Chaise Longue Chair is designed to create comfort out of hard material. Constructed in either Douglas fir or cherry wood, the only upholstered component of the 4PM Chaise Longue Chair is the leather headrest. Balanced on top of the backrest, Massproductions held the headrest in place with a steel weight.

Why is it noteworthy?

Massproductions is a slow furniture company, don’t let the name fool you. Since the furniture company only develops a few pieces every year, the ones that go into production guarantee a top-quality build and durable life span. Boasting an efficient, sustainable, and high-quality industrial production process, the company’s designers ensure the integrity of Massproductions’s vision. The company’s founder, Chris Martin, developed the 4PM Chaise Longue Chair to reinforce the company’s commitment to quality and produce an ergonomic, long-lasting chair for much-needed R&R.

What we like

  • Sustainable
  • Ergonomically designed

What we dislike

  • Doesn’t seem very comfortable to sit on
  • Space consuming

7. That Stool


That Stool is comprised of only a few parts: a seat rest, five legs, a couple of star-shaped spindles, and some connecting nuts and bolts. All contained within a flatpack corrugated cardboard box, the parts of That Stool are easy to assemble with no additional hardware required. Following the imprinted instructions on the underside of That Stool’s top cover, users will first attach each leg to the corresponding screws on the star-shaped spindles. From there, connecting fasteners secure the legs and spindles in place, providing a sturdy bolster for the seat rest to mount.

Why is it noteworthy?

Small stools can come in handy anywhere. From empty art studios to crowded offices, stools can make the simple difference between sitting on the floor and having a seat. They especially come in handy when they’re designed for easy assembly and storage. Developed by Alondra Elizalde, That Stool is a flatpack DIY small stool designed with easy assembly to provide a practical means of having a stool anywhere, at any time.

What we like

  • Flatpack design
  • You can build it yourself!
  • Can be assembled in 4 steps

What we dislike

  • Looks like any other regular stool on the market

8. Non Square


Introducing Non Square, the team of designers explains that, “It [pursues] the beauty of irregularity within, as opposed to regularity on the outside.” From the outside, Non Square sports a minimalist, stainless steel appearance that seems like a nondescript side table dressed as a cube. A closer look and Non Square’s larger purpose is revealed.

Why is it noteworthy?

Functionality typically stems from a product with a long shelf life and the ability to execute its primary purpose. Adding their design to the mix, Hyunjun Yu, Soojin Jung, Kyoungseo Park conceptualized Non Square, a furniture set that integrates side tables and stools within a stainless steel hexahedron structure.

What we like

  • Hidden storage compartments
  • Modular design

What we dislike

  • The product’s bulky + metallic aesthetics may complement only certain living spaces

9. Cat is Art


Interior design is an art of balance, and the furniture pieces made for our pets don’t always flow with the rest of our home the way we’d like. Too often, it comes down to what we’re willing to sacrifice: our interior design, or our cat’s comfort. Every once in a while, however, a new piece comes out that manages to wrap it all together. Cat Is Art, designed by Plenilunio Design Agency, is a modern cat tower that strikes the ideal balance between minimalism and rustic warmth.

Why is it noteworthy?

Amounting to a clever combination of a large bookshelf and cat tower, Cat Is Art finds climbing components via staggered shelves for cats to hop between and for users to store home appliances. Adding to their original cat den, the cat tower is its larger, taller counterpart. The cat tower’s exposed metal frame dips into farm-style interior design elements, giving it a rustic flair.

What we like

  • Meets the needs of pets + humans alike
  • Each shelf module is layered with padding so cats will always feel comfortable

What we dislike

  • Your cat can easily push your home goods of the tower!

10. The Displacement Collection


Comprised of conventional household furniture pieces that are constructed using unconventional building methods, this collection gives rise to benches, mirrors, and chairs that are built with integrated stainless steel connectors that piece together sheets of blue and orange acrylic sheets. Chosen for their close relation to public infrastructural products, the orange and blue polycarbonate sheets give each furniture item a unique look and silhouette.

Why is it noteworthy?

Despite the integral role they play in keeping our society functioning, everyday design items like street signs and other public notices often go unnoticed. While our private living spaces are filled with design pieces of our choosing, public spaces differ in that a unified design language is required to define their purpose and function. With that, the nuances of public infrastructural design are often lost. In an effort to give notice to these essential everyday objects and industrial designs, Beijing-based design studio Cometabolism continues to roll out new additions to their Displacement Collection, a long-term art project that attempts to blur the boundary between private and public spaces.

What we like

  • Highlights essential everyday objects we usually ignore

What we dislike

  • The designs are aesthetically intriguing, but we do question their day to day functionality
