IKEA may already offer some of the most convenient designs for home to date, but its latest line of charging furniture will introduce a new form of convenience. It incorporates Qi technology, which is already being used in many public locations such as hotels, restaurants, coffee shops and airports. By bringing this tech into its own business to create charging furniture, IKEA speaks to a generation that is becoming increasingly dependent on such devices.
The charging furniture collection essentially provides a wireless alternative to current power sources. This is something many consumers will appreciate. Cords and cables are not only hazards in the home, but also eyesores. By helping to eliminate them, IKEA provides a dual service.
