Bring “peace and quiet” back with technology free rooms!

Remember the good ol’ days when people stared at the world through a window rather than a screen? Technology has quickly become the crutch on which society functions around, but it’s not too late to bring back some old charm into your home! Ditch the tech and TVs; technology free rooms will bring you peace of mind in no time!


What is a technology free room?

Well, exactly what it sounds like! Tech-less living spaces, also known as talking or reading rooms, are popping up more often in homes these days. This trend takes the focus away from technology and restores focus on the people and the light in the room. Certain flooring in these rooms can even help make tech-less living spaces more inviting and elegant. For example, rich hardwood floors under a beautiful area rug would be a great choice for this type of room. Intricate carpet patterns would also provide a burst of color and life to the area.


In tech-less living spaces, conversation – not television – affects the location of the furniture. Line sofas and chairs around the room facing opposite one another, as this allows for organic interaction. Whether you’re entertaining guests or just looking for a cozy place to curl up with a good book, this room is peaceful, pleasant and perfect! Visit one of our showrooms for more ideas on how to bring style and comfort to your tech-less living spaces. We can help you bring elegance and style to any room in your house.
