• Lazy Basketball Chair: Your Living Room Is Now A Basketball Court

    Lazy Basketball Chair: Your Living Room Is Now A Basketball Court

    Sure, you can hang a couple of Nerf Hoops on the wall to bring a little shootout action to your home.  We doubt they’d look anywhere as impressive as the freestanding rings you can set up using these Lazy Basketball Chairs, though. Designed by Emanuele Magine for Campeggi, it’s, basically, a basketball version of the Lazy Football Chair the same partnership created a couple years ago.  Instead of a net, however, it gets what looks to be a regulation-size basketball [...]

    Open plan offices aren’t big on privacy. Chances are, your private phone call will quickly become a public announcement if you raise your voice even a little bit.

    Rockid Combines Rocking Chair And Cradle In One Smart Design

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 [...]

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

    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 [...]

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

    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 [...]

    TR-808 Beanbag Lounger Sounds Nice

    You like to pretend you’re a musician of sorts when bringing girls over.  But you can’t actually play, whether it be an instrument, a music-making software or one of those electronic thingamajigs.  As such, you fill up your house with music-related items (like a Marshall Fridge, a Flipper Spatula and a vintage Les Paul with all the strings removed), so you can look the part without actually getting asked to play anything.   May we recommend adding this TR-808 Beanbag to [...]

    Artful Dodger Is A Coin Thief’s Favorite Chair

    Do you have often have visitors?  Do they frequently have change in their pockets?  If you say “yes” to both, then you must have them sit in the Artful Dodger, a rocking chair that doubles as a petty thief, collecting lose coins as they fall off people’s pockets. Since it’s a rocking chair, it’s almost guaranteed that people will rock themselves back and forth on it.  And since that rocking motion will cause whatever’s in their pocket to get jumbled, [...]

  • Paq Chair Is A Beautifully-Designed Mattress/Armchair Combo

    Paq Chair Is A Beautifully-Designed Mattress/Armchair Combo

    Chairs that convert into mattresses aren’t really all that new.  Finding one, however, that actually looks serviceable as a chair is rare.  And that’s exactly what the Paq Chair brings with its novel transforming design. Unlike many transforming chair/mattresses I’ve seen, this one looks like it can actually hold you decently.  Provided you’re approximately not that much chubbier than the folks in the pictures, of course.  While I doubt it can make for a regular armchair for plopping down after [...]

    Montis Dickens Armchair Modernizes The Smoking Chair

    Unlike most people in your age group, you neither dress like a stylish rapper or a 90s slacker holdout.  You’re classier than that, strolling about town looking dapper in tailored suits and spit-shine dress shoes.  That’s how you roll.  If your house reflects the same refined taste, then the Montis Dickens Armchair should fit right in. Designed by Dick Spierenburg, the furniture draws inspiration from 50s-era smoking chairs.  The style is strictly modern, though, so don’t worry about looking like [...]

    Mantis Is A Super-Lightweight Folding Lounge Chair

    Camping chairs are rarely the most comfortable.  With portability being the main concern, they’re usually a far cry from what you’ll get from your favorite home lounger.  The Mantis claims to challenge that notion, offering a comfy lounging chair that’s as easy to travel with as your favorite camping seaters. Made by Alite Designs, it actually doesn’t look that comfortable.  In fact, most people would probably mistake it for children’s chairs — the kind you’ll pull out when you’ve got [...]

    Folditure Leaf Chair Folds Flat To Less Than 0.75 Inches

            Folding chairs — we’ve seen all sorts and types.  So far though, I don’t think I’ve ever come across anything like the Leaf, which looks more like a cool transforming robot than a seating furniture. The brainchild of Alexander Gendell at Folditure, the unique chair features a novel folding mechanism that allows it to fold into a flat shape that’s less than 3/4 of an inch in thickness and that also in the blink of an [...]

  • Lazy Football Chair Features Built-In Soccer Goal

    Lazy Football Chair Features Built-In Soccer Goal

    When I was a kid, I did plenty of things to turn standard household fare into toys.  Buckets became basketball hoops.  Plastic plates became frisbees.  And throw pillows became ladder sleds.  Somehow, though, I feel like I missed out on turning chairs into soccer goals like the Lazy Football Chair does. Designed by Emanuele Magini for Campeggi, it’s just a simple chair with net wrapped around the legs.  While dead easy, that little tweak just turned the chair into a [...]
