The Athena Sofa by ARTANOVA features a built-in LCD display to allow for a complete computing experience with no need to awkwardly hold a tablet. The Swiss-based company ingeniously uses the otherwise wasted space within the arms of the design to create a sofa that's something of a central media hub.

Aside from the built-in display, the Athena Sofa by ARTANOVA features a dock for an iPhone or iPod while strategically placed speakers and a subwoofer can add deep resonating sound that delivers something of an all-encompassing experience. The modernly designed Athena Sofa by ARTANOVA would be the perfect addition to any living space that's ready for a little 21st century upgrading, but with a steep price point that's set at around $15,000 it might leave many thinking of avoiding such grand design.
