To be blunt, that's a pretty sad interpretation of a really wired home. A wired home shouldn't mean that you have an ipad at arms reach no matter where you stand, but that technology is inspired by the settings in which it will be used, and augments the purposes of the room. Shoving a roll-in TV dolly into every bedroom and putting an ipad on every flat surface is the most insipid vision of a 'wired' home I've ever seen.

The apartment, however, was beautiful.

I know there's a bit of stigma with ikea given it's ability to be very hit or miss, but we've had this drop-leaf for over a year and in our current living space it's been the perfect solution:

We open up one side to seat 2 people nicely, or serves as a buffet bar if a table isn't needed. For entertaining it comfortably seats 6 with both leafs up (though the gate legs are more tricky to sit around than other drop-leafs).
