“How important have our homes become! For rest, enjoyment, family, safety, and now, more than ever, work. A totally fresh look on how individuals look at their environments across all socio-economic groups is just beginning. Everything from the kitchen to the home office, to dedicated video chat spaces – our homes will continue to grow in importance as an asset for all of us and our families.”
