Castors have been catapulted to the forefront of design in recent years. The trend to “industrial” look furniture has made all things with castors or wheels popular with good reason. The concurrent “modern/minimalist” trend dictates that furniture should be used sparingly and only when necessary. Another trend towards smaller open concept living spaces make gliding furniture and walls essential. You can slide a rolling coffee table underneath a dining or console table when not in use. Castors also allow you to reconfigure your living space without help (or a second opinion).
