• 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 [...]

  • Hosu Lounger: Could This Be The New Home Office Standard?

    Hosu Lounger: Could This Be The New Home Office Standard?

    Remember when you thought an expensive armchair and a large wooden desk is the perfect home office combo? With computing moving to tablets and mobile platforms (especially with that gorgeous Microsoft Surface on the way), that may actually change very soon.  And  when that happens, it isn’t too far fetched that more of us may opt for a home office equipped with the Hosu Convertible Lounger. Designed by Patricia Urquiola for Coalesse, it’s a sofa that can convert into a [...]

  • Andromeda Tactical Lighting Is A Military-Inspired Customizable Lamp

    Andromeda Tactical Lighting Is A Military-Inspired Customizable Lamp

    When the picatinny rail was first invented, we doubt they envisioned it ever being used for home furniture.  Let’s face it, though — it’s an awesome mounting system on top of being absolutely gnarly-looking.  And it looks madly on point when used in the Andromeda Tactical Lighting. Made by Sketchy Design Studio, it’s a mililtary-inspired lamp that looks more like a battle robot than a lighting furniture.  Seriously, my iRobot 710 wants to challenge it to a robot duel now.  [...]

    This Laptop Desk Features A Built-In Sound System

    Do you spend most of the time on a laptop either making or listening to music?  Then it should be hard to find a more fitting workstation than the La Boite LD120 Laptop Desk, which integrates a hi-fi sound system right into the table frame. No, these aren’t just desktop speakers slotted into cabinets either — this is a high-quality sound system built into a functional work desk.  It’s the kind of table every budding digital producer should have, instead [...]

  • Drink Wine While Sitting On This Giant Champagne Cork Stool

    Drink Wine While Sitting On This Giant Champagne Cork Stool

    A long time ago in a land far, far away, a giant came down from his home in the heavens bringing a giant crate filled with giant bottles of wine to share with the puny humans in the land down below.  They partied, got drunk and got a little rowdy through the course of the night, eventually breaking the bottles and leaving nothing but the corks behind.  Those corks have now made their way to the internet and are sold [...]

  • Blandito Is A Giant Pillow/Mattress Burrito

    Blandito Is A Giant Pillow/Mattress Burrito

    We can’t tell how comfortable (or uncomfortable) the Blandito is, but I have to say: it looks awesome.  Not only will it make for a sweet wraparound pillow/mattress/blanket — it can be repurposed for a whole lot of uses while chilling around the house, too. Created by  Oradaria Design, it’s billed as a “transformable pad for lazy living.”  And by transform, they’re not kidding, since you can fold it and roll it and turn it into a wide host of [...]

  • Little Oyster Is A Coffee Table That’s Also A Chair That’s Also A Storage Box

    Little Oyster Is A Coffee Table That’s Also A Chair That’s Also A Storage Box

    We like it when stuff does other stuff that it isn’t supposed to.  Like helicopters that are also cars.  Or surfboard bags that are also tents.  Or soup mugs that can also hold crackers. And we love the Little Oyster Coffee Table for those same multi-purpose talents. Designed by Al-Hamad Design, the transforming table sports a simple boxy shape that should make it useful either as a side table or a coffee table.  While the design is rather simple and [...]

  • Higher Ground Bookshelf Features Pop-Out Ladder

    Higher Ground Bookshelf Features Pop-Out Ladder

    Living with tall bookshelves usually means you’ll need to have a ladder constantly nearby.  That way, you can just pull it up as soon as you realize your wife (who happens to be the world’s tallest bikini model) put that graphic novel you’re halfway through reading on the top shelf again.  Unless, of course, you’re using this Higher Ground Bookshelf. Designed by Karen King, the shelf makes needing an extra ladder unnecessary by integrating its own pop-out climbing system.  That [...]

  • Montis Dickens Armchair Modernizes The Smoking Chair

    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 [...]

  • Life Size Game Of Thrones Iron Throne Replica

    Life Size Game Of Thrones Iron Throne Replica

    It’s good to be king. Whether you’re ruling over the Seven Kingdoms, the drug trade in the streets of urban America or the population of engineers in your office, the king always gets his way.  Every king deserves the kingliest of thrones and we can’t imagine anything more violently regal than this 1:1 replica of the Game of Thrones’ Iron Throne. No, this isn’t just some dude from Etsy crafting an unlicensed reproduction.  Instead, it’s a life-sized official replica sold [...]

  • Mantis Is A Super-Lightweight Folding Lounge Chair

    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 [...]

  • A Shelf For Books, Shoes And… A Bike?!?

    A Shelf For Books, Shoes And… A Bike?!?

    We’ve seen plenty of bike storage solutions before.  And while the Shoes Books and Bike Shelf doesn’t even come close to the clever space-saving tricks some of those products pull, we can’t help but love the sheer madness of it. Designed by Thomas Walde for Post Fossil, it’s a multi-purpose standing shelf with designated spaces for books, shoes and a bicycle.  Yep, a bicycle.  That way, you can keep the bike in your room, instead of the garage or another [...]

  • Mixtape Coffee Table

    Mixtape Coffee Table

    Cassette tapes, along with ghetto blasters and Sony’s Walkman, beautifully represent how people consumed their music in the 80s.  So it’s not surprising a lot of today’s designers are incorporating those iconic objects into their creations.  This gorgeous Mixtape Table has to be one of the darling examples. Made by Jeff Skierka, it’s a coffee table clad in the iconic form of a cassette tape.  And he stays faithful, recreating the old media in detail, complete with fake tape running [...]

  • Folditure Leaf Chair Folds Flat To Less Than 0.75 Inches

    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 [...]

  • Urban Shelf Is A Temporary Side Table You Can Set Up In Any Bed

    Urban Shelf Is A Temporary Side Table You Can Set Up In Any Bed

    You want a side table for the bedroom. But the last of your card’s credit limit went to that NES Controller Table you impulse-purchased during a drunken haze last week.  Don’t worry, your nighttime stash don’t have to be strewn across the floor night after night.  You can get a functional side table without an actual side table with the Urban Shelf. A three-panel foldable shelf designed to install by your bed, you simply unfold the whole thing and slip [...]

  • 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 [...]

  • SmartDeco Makes Inexpensive Yet Functional Corrugated Furniture

    SmartDeco Makes Inexpensive Yet Functional Corrugated Furniture

    I love cardboard furniture — it’s easy to move around, simple to assemble and serviceable to look at.  But it’s temporary furniture at best, so paying regular furniture price for it (like many cardboard furniture makers seem to expect) just isn’t something I can see doing unless they can last as long as their wood and metal counterparts.  That’s why SmartDeco’s affordable pricing makes perfect sense. While none of these furniture pieces are likely to win points in stylish design [...]

    Read n Rock Rocker Fits You And Your Little One Comfortably

    You can probably pick up a rocking chair from most any furniture store.  If you’re looking for one specifically for bonding with the kid, though, few pieces are likely more fitting than the Read n Rock Rocker. Sized for 1.25 people (you and your mini-me), the chair is designed as a comfy spot where you can snuggle with the little one.  You can read the kid a story, make up tall tales of your past adventures or play a cooperative [...]

    DIY Building Blocks Furniture

    If building furniture worked the same way as constructing with Legos, a lot more people will be making their own home furniture.  That is, if people were fine living in an entire house full of plastic furniture.  At any rate, that’s exactly what you get to do with the DIY Building Blocks, a set of blown-up construction bricks for putting together chairs, tables and cabinets for kids. Just like Legos, the bricks consist of different plastic pieces with multiple connectors [...]
