Verner Panton Living Tower Is A Vertical Sofa For The Rich

verner-panton-living-tower-vitra-3

It’s nice when you can afford the luxury of decking out your living space in out-of-the-box pieces of furniture and home apparel. It’s all Ikea and dollarstore cutlery for us, but if your wallet has deeper recesses than ours, Verner Panton’s Living Tower is an interesting take on the sofa. It features an organically shaped sculptural piece that can accommodate up to 3 to 4 people in comfort, all the while looking like it came straight out of the 60’s. And that’s, well, because it did. Panton died in 1998, and originally produced this piece in 1969. But it’s being brought back by Vitra, the original manufacturer, and you can have it for an astounding $16,125. Yes, delivery is free in the continental USA, but that’s probably small consolation once you realize you spent 5 figures on a piece of furniture.

Dimensions, incidentally, are 78.75″ L | 26.5″ d | 78.75″ h.

Stumble Upon is a Rug and Coffee Table Combo That You Can Literally Stumble Upon

Stumble Upon

There’s StumbleUpon on the world wide web to help you stumble upon sites, articles, and blogs that you might find interesting. There’s also a Stumble Upon for the real world which happens to be an unusually designed piece of furniture: it’s a rug that doubles as a coffee table as well. Designed by Alessandro Isola, the Stumble Upon might just literally make you stumble upon a magazine on the table by tripping you up. I doubt that’s Alessandro’s intention with his design, though.

His project called ‘stumble upon,’ Alessandro Isola uses these folds and curves to an advantage that creates a flexible and practical coffee table”

FirstCall Chair is an Uber Comfortable and Private Phone Booth

FirstCall

If you find yourself scooting to the farthest end of the couch or leaving the room to take or make calls just to get some privacy, then you’ll like the idea behind FirstCall. It’s a cushy, comfortable chair that’s shaped like a giant telephone, which is pretty appropriate considering it was designed and made to let people converse on the phone in peace and with privacy.

The cool part is how the top of the chair obscures the person’s face and sort of makes the seat feel more like a booth of sorts.

I Need Me One of These: Bibliochaise Bookshelf Chair

Bookshelf Chair

Everyone’s strapped for space these days, with the high cost of rent and storage and all. So what’s a bookworm to do? Why, get one of these Bibliochaise chairs designed by Nobody & Co., that’s what! They’re essentially bookshelves that double as reading chairs, so all you have to do is sit back, reach down and around to pick a title and start reading.

The prototype of the chair can hold up to 300 books, which is pretty impressive, considering the overall size of the Bibliochaise.Continue Reading

Where’s Your Favorite Book? Right Here, In Your Bibliochaise Of Course

bibliochaise_ss-960x350

The Bibliochaise is a creation of Nobody & Company, an Italian design firm. It’s made from “materials adapted from high performance yacht technologies”, which sounds like it’s going to be expensive. The chaise is able to hold up to 300 books, while giving your living quarters a decidedly artsy/academic aura.

And while it does sound expensive, we don’t actually know how much it is.

The Only Staircase You’ll Need: Comes With Shelves, a Cupboard, and a Desk

Haasnot Stairs Shelves Cupboard

 

Cities are getting more overcrowded by the minute. That means increased rent, smaller spaces, and more cramped apartments all throughout. It’s probably with this in mind that inspired Dutch design studio Mieke Meijer to come up with this four-in-one piece of furniture, as it combines a staircase, storage shelves, a cupboard, and even a desk.

The work was commissioned by designer Just Haasnoot and it’s definitely a huge space-saver, I’ll give it that. While it’s not the safest staircase in the world (no handrails and it’s pretty narrow), it makes the most out of limited space that plain old staircases typically occupy.

You can find out more info about it HERE.

Megaton Floor Lamp Looks Like The Real Deal

megaton-lamp

We’re not 100% sure the Korean War-era bomb casing used in the making of the above lamp was from an actual 1950’s stockpile, but that’s the claim being made. We have no reason to doubt them, especially considering the asking price: $1,680. Stockpile Designs seems to be in the business of repurposing old military equipment into furniture of all sorts, and the Megaton Lamp pictured above is but one of their creations. If it doesn’t strike your fancy, know they have quite a few more military-industrial type items for purchase.

Some people are really serious about their cats. Stefan Hofmann understands this, and designs modular “furniture” specifically for your furry friends. Through his company, Goldtatze, he makes and installs these in what appears to be endless configurations. Words really don’t quite make his creations justice, so why don’t you hit the jump and feast on a whole bunch of pictures.

Also, we don’t have any info on price but we’re going to go ahead and assume we can’t afford any of this.

the-stage

A Holland-based company known as Spell has recently launched their latest product, The Stage. This interesting new furniture design claims to help you with all the unwanted cables in sight in a very fashionable manner. Though the purpose of these shelfs are to get rid of the cables, they can also be served as a small workplace. With this innovative design that brings enough space underneath to hide a power strip, the “Stage” can easily be used as a fully functional charging and meeting station.

The Stage top is made from Solid American walnut while the base from epoxy coated steel and durable foam-rubber. It can easily be mounted on most common walls in your home and has enough space to hold up a five-plug international powerstrip. The company also gives an option to produce the “Stage” in solid oak, oak white and in optional leather inlay. They are always willing to go one step ahead to meet their customer needs.
