MUSEUM OF SCIENCE & INDUSTRY. SMART HOME EXHIBIT
The Museum of Science and Industry recently debuted its concept design, the Smart Home. A green friendly three story modular home designed for a family of three in mind. Instead of furnishing the home with new couches and sofas, vintage and gently used furnitures have been used.
It's hip to go green without compromising on style, comfort, practicality, and affordability exemplified by this beautiful home. It is open to the public for viewing.
