    This is Wover The Woven Rocker, a rocking room on display at the Seattle Design Festival with recliners for 12-people to stretch out and all get seasick together. You even been seasick before? It sucks. Happens to me all the time and I've never been on a boat in the ocean be... / Continue →

    This is a Viking longboat inspired conference table. That's really all the information I have except those chairs look like they suck but I would still love to sit at the head or tail of that thing yelling at the rest of my coworkers. AND WE'RE GOING TO BURN OUR COMPETITION T... / Continue →

    This is a short compilation video of Commander Riker sitting down in Star Trek: The Next Generation. He always approaches the seat from the rear then kicks one leg over it. Why? Presumably to draw attention to his nuts. I do this thing whenever I win a game of foosball wher... / Continue →

    This is a series of chair paintings that look like ordinary canvases but are actually made out of an elastic material and have a wooden frame behind them so you can sit IN the painting. They were designed by the Japanese design studio YOY and would be the perfect thing to put ... / Continue →

    This is designer Aga Brzostek's comfy looking Autumn/Winter Chair. That's a bad name, but a good idea. It's a chair with an integrated sweater blanket cover that you can get into and wrap all around you to stay warm on those cold winter nights. Plus if there's a house fire y... / Continue →

    This is a video of an industrial robot that's been programmed to carve logs into stools with a chainsaw. Afterwards, the stools are sold to the folks who came to watch the robot in action. Wow, what a fun way to spend a Saturday morning! "You're joking." Of course I'm jokin... / Continue →

    I'm serious -- don't tell my granpda. He doesn't even know what an iPad is but he'll want to know, then you'll get sucked into a half hour conversation that will probably end with him falling asleep mid-sentence. This is the iRock (really?), a $1,300 rocking chair that genera... / Continue →

    Dutch designer Jólan van der Wiel made these stools with magic by mixing iron filings with molten plastic and creating the legs by "pulling" them up using magnets. When the plastic hardens, BAM -- you've got yourself a stool. "What the -- I'm not milking cows, who the hell si... / Continue →

    I'll dump wherever I damn well please. This is a gallery of road-sign furniture crafted by Tim Delger with the help of prison inmates. Get it? Because they manufacture all the road signs in there! "Those are license plates." GOD YOU ARE REALLY STARTING TO GET ON MY NERVES.... / Continue →

    This is horribly crappy camera-phone video of a teacher going nuts on some high school students and eventually throwing chairs, including one through a window. You don't actually see too much on account of the camera-phoner sucking 200% at life AND videography, but you can cer... / Continue →

    Right -- first you take away the complimentary peanuts, and now my legroom? THIS IS AN OUTRAGE! What we need are affordable jetpacks. Here's a harrowing image: the SkyRider design for new cheapo airplane seats. Clearly designed with cramming as many people as humanly possibl... / Continue →

    KegStools are $100 conversion kits that turn a keg (that you supply) into a barstool. At first I thought that by repeatedly sitting and standing you were pumping the keg, but the kit actually renders the keg untappable, making it the saddest thing I've ever seen. I don't want... / Continue →

    The Growing Chair is a clear plastic frame in which you grow trees to form a seat shape so that, in your old age, you can sit around drinking moonshine and reminiscing on the days when you had to use power tools to make a chair (or were Amish). Personally, I love the idea BECA... / Continue →

    When I was shopping for just the right ass-receptacle for my cubicle, I considered the ejector seat chair, Hula chair, and tank chair. Unfortunately, I didn't know about these fast little numbers at the time. RaceChairs are actual seats from sports cars that have been convert... / Continue →

    How many times have you sat through a boring meeting wishing you had an ejector seat that could blast you through the ceiling and into the women's restroom on the floor above? Never? Well I wish that all the time. Anyways, if you're the 'top gun' in your office (I'm actually... / Continue →

    I've seen chairs like this before, but never on this scale. The Loopita, by designer Victor Aleman, is constructed from a single piece of red oak and covered with high density foam for your sitting pleasure. The picture above actually shows three units put together, each one al... / Continue →

    Alexander Reh designed the 'Fully Loaded' chair awhile ago, but now has 30 available for purchase. You have to contact him for pricing information though (read: they're expensive). Each contains 450 .12 gauge shotgun shells, and are allegedly comfortable. If ammunition real... / Continue →

    Is it an armchair? Is it a Hover-round? What the hell is it? It's Toyota's new mobility concept, the i-Real. The seat moves from an upright position to a lying down one depending on your speed. The thing tops out at about 18 mph, which is the max legal speed for 50cc type ... / Continue →

    Carlo Volf displayed his Stick Chair at the recent Made In Denmark exhibit in London. He actually made the chair back in 2000, but it's still drawing oohs and aahs from crowds for some reason. "The chair directly references the classic Spindleback Chair, but with a modern twi... / Continue →
