When furniture and decor becomes just as practical as it is aesthetically pleasing, I imagine the result to be something like the products from Design Studio Quarterre. This fresh company creates furniture solutions for bicycles, as to incorporate them into the decor scheme as oppose to hiding them out in a closet or garage.
The Design Studio Quarterre's bicycle furniture will be on display at the London Design Festival 2011 and are certainly worth checking out. Popular design website 'Freshome' quoted the company in saying, "designed to support everyday life on two wheels, these premium pieces unite cycling culture with interior design."
Implications - Products or services that promote eco-initiatives -- such as riding as bicycle as opposed to driving -- will continue to have a place in consumer's futures. These products not only help to ease consumers into green living, but they infect much-needed eco-enthusiasm into society.
