Scott Lachut: A Glimpse Inside PSFK’s Future Of Home Living Report

PSFK Labs describes what life at home may look like in the coming months and years and how we might get there.

PSFK is excited to announce the latest in a series of trend reports. Following studies into retail, social media, gaming, work and mobile, the PSFK Labs consulting team have generated the Future of Home Living report. That report manifests as a free summary presentation, an in-depth downloadable PDF and an exhibition in New York City that runs to August 16.

The Future of Home Living report finds that life at home has become incredibly dynamic and interactive thanks to a host of interconnected technologies and systems, versatile and space-saving designs, and platforms that connect to nearly anyone or anything at the click of button. Imagine a home that controls the environment to ensure your personal equilibrium, a suite of services that accommodate an on-demand lifestyle, and furnishings that can adapt throughout the day to meet virtually any need from sleep and work to socializing and play.

This forward-looking vision is not as far off as we may think, with many of the products and services available to us today and more innovations just around the corner. With the Future of Home Living report, PSFK Labs wants to provide our point of view on what life at home may look like in the coming months and years and how we might get there. This research seeks to uncover the emerging behaviors, technologies, products, services, and initiatives that are driving the evolution of the home.

Over the next four weeks, we’ll provide a detailed look at 13 key trends that are directly influencing the future of urban life. Each trend has been brought to life through a mix of products and services, many of which you could purchase and use today. Alongside these best-in-class examples, we’ve spoken to experts and gathered supporting data to further highlight the impact of these ideas.

To examine our trends through a macro lens, we’ve organized them into three larger themes: Adaptive, On-Demand and Equilibrium, which point to the importance of a clean, efficient and responsive space that can flexibly conform to the ever-changing needs of its residents. This overarching framework is meant to inspire anyone to reshape their life at home, regardless of whether they live in a studio apartment inside a high rise, a split-level home in the suburbs or a remote cabin in the woods.
