Weighing a bit of neck and shoulder pain against your determination to get through the latest season of Selling Sunset? You’re not alone.
Call it Forward Head Posture or Netflix neck, consumers are on a mission to fight back with screen-time-friendly furniture. And like almost everything - it starts in the bedroom.
Prompted by streaming wars and expedited by the pandemic, the global bedroom furniture market is expected to grow at a rate of 4.5% over the next years.
The timeless definition of bedtime - once shorthand for, “Get to sleep, kids!” - is being tested by the digital age’s infamous hang-out-in-bed-time. Settling under the covers used to mean our minds could take their 8 hour break. But as unwinding becomes synonymous with watching TV, the bed frame market is quickly recognizing its role in perfecting Netflix binging.
This makes Headboards and adjustable bases more popular than ever, with upholstered headboards dominating 2020 bedroom design trends.
