The Multifunctional, Totally Genius Home Items That Make Each Room Work Harder
A kitchen that knows how to brew your morning coffee. A living room that answers random questions on the fly. It’s one thing to feel like your house is your home. It’s quite another when that home understands you on a deeply personal level. The key to making each room industrious is to decorate with well-designed, multifunctional, hardworking pieces that are as efficient as they are beautiful.

If you’re a cook, you probably live in this room. If your partner’s a cook, you probably live in this room. If neither of those things is true, you still probably live in this room. So adding a few items that make reheating, warming, and serving incalculably easier will make living in this room even better. And if possible, even more popular.
