    Rockid Combines Rocking Chair And Cradle In One Smart Design

    A rocking cradle is great for lulling baby to sleep just as a rocking chair is great for sending you down the same path to slumber.   So why not combine both to send both mother and child dozing off?  That’s exactly what they did with Rockid. Sporting a chair on one end and a crib on the other, the furniture lets both parent and baby relax while gently swinging in a rocking motion.  That way, you can get yourself all [...]

    Industrial Swank: This Storage Furniture Looks Like Freight Containers

    Shipping containers are awesome.  Sure, they’re industrial levels of ugly, but they’re super functional.  So functional, in fact, that we use them for a whole load of things beyond transporting goods, such as temporary shelters, standalone saunas, and more.  We’re guessing they’ll actually make nice storage boxes around the house, too, if they weren’t so huge.  Well, now they can with the Container Collection. Designed to bring a little industrial aesthetic to your abode, the collection consists of storage pieces [...]

    Connect-It Tablet Desk Pairs Sleek Design With Tons Of Storage

    Sometimes, you need two computers, a tablet, a phone, three books, and a couple of thick reports to get work done.  Other times, you just need a clean desk with a small pile of documents to do the same thing.  Unfortunately, your two computers, tablet, phone, books, and thick reports remain in the desk because that’s all the space you have in your tiny home office.  And while that gutter-reinforced Homework Table is nice, it still has all your unsightly stuff lined [...]

    Figo Chaise Lounge: Adults Can Have Cool Futons, Too

    Futons and novelty bean bags have been a staple of young people’s living spaces for the longest time.  Futons in particular, take up minimal space, provide decent comfort and serve both seating and bedding duties capably.  When you grow up, futons become nothing more than distant memories of a past life — back when you didn’t have money, lived in a cramped box and considered ramen noodles the central component of your diet.  Ahhh, adulthood.  If you miss futons but [...]

    Blofield’s roster of inflatable sofas and party loungers are quite impressive, managing to look moderately classy, all while serving genuinely useful seating function.  While they look like they will be fun to bring to the next family outing, they present a new problem entirely: what the heck will you use for tables?  The Blofield DoNuts has you covered on that end.

    8″ Power Bed Riser Raises Your Bed Frame, Charges Your Gadgets

    Bed risers are great when you need to put a little more height to where you lay your head.  I know for sure raising your bed from head side does help specially if you suffer from acid reflux at night.

    Vessel Combines Hammock And Bathtub For A Unique Bathroom Piece

    Everybody loves hammocks.  Everybody loves bathtubs.  The awesomeness of both those things is as apparent as life itself, so it’s weird that it took a long time before someone combined them into one form the way the Vessel does. Made by Splinter Works, it’s a bathtub that’s shaped like a hammock that’s meant to be mounted up two walls facing each other.  While it’s obviously best for installing in bathrooms, it could make just as capable a furnishing for any [...]

      Your wife has laid down her verdict: a big fat “no” to the mini-bar in the living room proposal you filed last night while you were talking in bed.  She doesn’t mind the cost, she just minds the idea of a bar taking up an entire corner of her home.  Well, how about a really compact serving box like the Gin Wheel?

    We keep a special place in our hearts for analog clocks.  Even though we have the time on every piece of household electronics these days (heck, even my electric fan shows the time), having a huge clock somewhere around the house still makes sense somehow.   If you like to keep a small clock on the coffee table, too, why not trade that in for this Analog Clocktail Table. Instead of putting a clock on the table, it puts a clock [...]

    Colin Selig Recycles Propane Tanks Into Beautiful Chairs And Benches

    Ever seen one of those large propane tanks they keep in warehouses or transport using big trailer trucks?  Those have really limited life cycles because once they start to corrode or get damaged, they’re, essentially, thrown out — repairing them is rarely allowed because of the critical nature of their function (i.e. holding gas under pressure).  We’re not exactly sure what happens to those tanks when they’re discarded, but somebody has started using them to build fine-looking Propane Tank Chairs.

    Turnstone Buoy Is A Tilting, Swiveling Exercise Seat Helping You Burn Calories

    Many of us spend the day sitting on our backsides, then come home to do the same thing in our comfy couches.  While you can always get one of those standing desks to shake off some calories, going upright for an entire workday doesn’t sound all that fun either.  And those exercise machine office chairs are just way too big for your cramped cubicles.  Maybe the Turnstone Buoy will make for a more suitable solution. A stool designed for “active [...]

    Inflatable stuff, from giant couches to blow-up waterparks, are awesome.  And if they can have the same superpowers as the Windcatcher Air Pad, they will likely be even more awesome. Created by Portland-based Ryan Frayne, it’s an inflatable mattress that’s designed for blowing up by simply puffing into it.  Yep, no pumps necessary.  You don’t have to blow into it till you’re red in the face and your jaws hurt, either — just three puffs of air and the thing [...]

    620 Chair Program: The Awesome 60s-Era Modular Sofa Returns

    Back in the 60s, Dieter Rams designed a modular seating furniture called the 620 Chair Program, which allowed you to expand a single-person armchair into a sofa with an infinite amount of seats.  It was awesome then and, as it turns out, it’s still awesome now that they decided to revive it. Made by high-end furniture outfit Vitsoe (stylized as Vitsœ), the piece starts out as a single person armchair with a low backrest.  From there, it can be fitted [...]

Created by OOO My Design, the children’s furniture is comprised of a board packed with built-in push pins that go through to the other side.  Kids can line up the shelves themselves or, more likely, they can just push [...]

    Beach7 AirLounge XL Is A Party-Sized Inflatable Couch

    Inflatable furniture is far from what can be construed as classy (even if they look really classy like the Blofield Inflatables).  The domain of the sophisticated, it definitely isn’t.  So that picture of the Beach7 AirLounge XL with the nicely-dressed party of folks drinking cocktails probably won’t be your reality.  However, that doesn’t take away from the sheer awesomeness of this thing. A round-shaped sofa, it comes in two parts: a huge outer couch and an inner couch that can [...]
