You love your smartphones and smart cars. At Ashley HomeStore, we love our smart furniture.
To the traditionalists who attest “form follows function,” we say form and function go hand in hand. Here are some of our favorite furnishings designed to make life easier—and more stylish—everywhere from the home office and living room, to the bedroom and beyond.
Mighty smart indeed, the Birnalla desk is crafted with a hinged flip top, so you can conveniently prop up reference materials, including your tablet, while you work. And thanks to dual electric outlets and USB charging ports, staying powered up is easy. The chic look blends rustic charm with modern polish.
Cross Island Credenza
Those on a mission to set up a productive work-from-home space love all that the Mission-style Cross Island credenza can do. Built for looks and productivity, it includes a pull-out tray for easy printer access, file cabinet storage, a built-in power strip and ample storage above and below the work surface.
Laflorn Chairside End Table
How many times have you sat down and realized…you’re out of juice. Wouldn’t it be great to charge up without getting up? Check out this chairside end table’s flip top revealing a power station with USB charging ports. Factor in a pullout tray with cup holders and a remote slot, along with shelved cabinet storage, this end table has plenty of hidden potential.
Gavelston Lift Top Table
Appearances can be deceiving. What looks like a straightforward “weathered” coffee table in vintage black is anything but. With a lift tabletop on one side and trunk storage on the other, the Gavelston lift top coffee table has raised our expectations. Optional casters add to the form and function.
Traditionally styled and modestly scaled, the Woodboro desk proves that old and new can work so well together. Spring lift top raises the surface to a healthier-alternative, standing position. For your high-tech needs, there’s an electrical outlet/USB charging port built right in.
The Maxington nightstand is getting plenty of buzz for good reason. On the reverse side, a pair of slim, discreetly placed USB ports power up modern electronics without distracting from its countrified cool charm.
