Invisible Design

Transparent home furnishings appeal to desire for simplicity

Implications - Minimalism continues to be a direction in home decor and furniture design—and there’s nothing more minimal than a transparent item. See-through furnishings and home accents can make small, confined spaces look bigger by virtue of their transparency. For urbanites having to adhere to space constraints, invisible furnishings allow for both modern aesthetic and sheer functionality.
