    This is the Free Hug Sofa designed by Eun Kyoung Lee. Personally, it looks more like an armchair to me. You know, because it has arms. Plus it's not sofa sized. It should probably be called the Free Hug Armchair, but that's just me and I believe in calling them how I see th... / Continue →

    This is the beanbag Iron Throne made by Isabell Kiko of Nerd By Night (but what are you by day?!). She even includes patterns and instructions if you want to make your own, WHICH YOU DO. Sure yours won't look as good and will start losing its beans immediately, but hey -- you... / 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 →
