As furniture for the home becomes more contemporary and practical, designers are now looking to update public spaces such as Common by Naoto Fukasawa, a Japanese designer based in Tokyo, Japan, does. It is a line of couches, tables, armchairs, benches, storage units and more that are made specifically for waiting rooms. Completely functional, the pieces fit together in different arrangements. It is this modular feature that really makes them stand out.

The seats making up Common by Naoto Fukasawa are all made from high-density foam that sit on natural oak hardwood feet. Reminiscent of the modern classics, the timeless designs should last until designers yet again feel the need to revamp such common waiting spaces.
