Reality Check

  • Claim:

    So smart.

  • Reality:

    The cooler drawer is proven, in a previous product, to live up to the claim.
    Wireless charging can handle two phones at one time, and is a nicely integrated feature that may be limited to the lifespan of current tech.
    Bluetooth speakers are also proven in previous products.
    Motion sensor lighting tied in with the front facing LED bar is a nice feature for those who prefer night time lighting.
    Future Proof is a questionable possibility since charging stations and usb ports could always be upgraded in the near future.

  • Claim:

    Your life, reimagined.

  • Reality:

    A bold claim for a piece of furniture. This is an initial product that can be a catalyst for change in the smart furniture future. With clever design and well thought out features, the Sobro side table is a highly functional piece of furniture that caters to a specific style for certain rooms.

  • Claim:

    Great for small spaces...

  • Reality:

    The Sobro side table is a cleverly designed smart piece of furniture that maximizes space and efficiency while maintaining a minimal style.

Bottom Line

On the heels of an already successful initial campaign for the Sobro Coffee Table, the Sobro Side Table is a stylish piece of furniture that has well thought out features. There are no elements here that are stretching current tech but instead adding a plethora of existing amenities to one focal point. The style is well done, but limits potential backers to either redesign current interior styles in their home or make it work. Certain elements may be limited by current tech lifespan like USB ports or charging stations, but should have a decent life expectancy. The app adds a pleasant layer of customizabilty with ease of use. In all, the Sobro Side Table is jumping into the furniture game to cater to those looking to simplify, stylize, and maximize their space while improving quality of life.
