That could go in any direction. You hit up "futuristic table" in Google, and this is what they're offering. You have the table designed by Apple:




Shit that looks like it'll break if I touch it:




The acid trip:




The token shiny, curvy, glassy thing:




EVE from Wall-E:




and the "it shines so I guess it's futuristic":




I don't know why tables need to be complicated in the future. I guess, okay, this is the future so they can't be a mere rectangle with supporting legs. They need to be advanced and impractical.

Well compare modern tables to how they looked back in the 1910's.  Now go forward 100 years in the future.  The aspects and cultures of life change and so do the commodities around it.  Do you see everyone now using architecture from the 19th century? I think not.  Everything naturally evolves, over time.

I hope you enjoyed my crack at philosophy.

Yeah but architecture from the 19th century is still around and will be for a few hundred years yet. Plus fashions come and go in all aspects of life. Certain things will always change quite rapidly, like transport and technology, but many environments don't alter radically.
