Is Your Posterior Deserving Of A $6,600 Toilet?


Kohler makes some fancy kitchen and bathroom fixtures, one of the most notable of which is the Numi toilet. It’s notable mostly because you’ll have to spend $6,600 to own it, and it does a variety of things that you may or may not want a toilet to do:

[It includes] a Bluetooth receiver for users to stream audio from their mobile devices, an SD card to access custom playlists or personalized welcome messages, a USB port for software updates, and ambient lighting that features seven different colors to choose from.

We’re all for entertaining ourselves while on the John, but what’s wrong with just looking at your phone for a bit? You’re not supposed to spend 30 minutes there… drying…

Other features include an advanced bidet functionality with integrated dryer, a remote control and a wall-mounted docking station.

Don’t Want A Bean Bag? Get The Blandito – A Burrito For Furniture


The Blandito is a creation of Oradaria Design, and is meant to be a transformable, malleable piece of soft furniture for the home.

It can be bent and shaped to suit an individual’s needs at any given moment. Once you find the shape you want, you can fix it in place using the wooden ball hooks that are included. This means Blandito can be used as a rug, a sleeping bag, a bean bag, or an armchair – at the very least

Initially just an Internet-famous prototype, the Blandito has now graduated into an item in full production, which you can acquire for prices starting at €315 (US$415). The video below gives you an idea of just how it’s meant to be used, and you can hit the jump for a few more pictures.

Mystery AT-AT Bunkbed


The interconnected series of tubes otherwise known as the Internet is a strange place, sometimes. Pictures can pop up that make us drool of envy, even as their origins remains shrouded in mystery. Case in point: the above AT-AT bunk bed. All we have is that picture. A reverse image search reveals an Imgur link with a headline that reads “My uncle built an AT-AT bunk bed for his son. So jealous!” So there you have it. Some uncles are better than others. But knowing the image popped online through an Imgur link doesn’t help. What uncle? Where? How do we contact him so he’ll make us one? Why won’t anyone answer these important questions? That’s what we mean by shrouded in mystery; there’s an uncle somewhere, that somehow built something awesome. We don’t know who or how. But we hate him because he’s not our uncle.

Rocking Stool Literally Rocks–Just Make Sure You Don’t Fall Off

Stool Rocks

You’ve all heard about rocking chairs, but who’s ever heard of a rocking stool? James McBennett is hoping thousands of people from the world over will know (and maybe own) a rocking stool by the time his campaign on Kickstarter wraps up.

It’s basically a stool that rocks. The innovative design is minimalist and is a breeze to put together and take apart. According to the project page, you can do so in under a minute. There are also three kinds of rocking stools: the Hard Rock, the Soft Rock, and the Easy Rock. (On a side note, can I just say that I love how they named these stools?)

It’s Not Your Screen, It’s the Furniture: Ferruccio Laviani’s Hand-Carved Glitchy Cabinet

Ferruccio Laviani Furniture1


There’s nothing wrong with your screen, because that’s what the wooden storage unit pictured above is supposed to look like. This hand-carved cabinet of sorts is called the Good Vibrations Storage Unit and it was created by architect Ferruccio Laviani for the 2013 Furniture Exhibition. Even if you’re not into wooden furniture, you have to admit that it’s all sorts of impressive. What sets it apart is its glitchy design, which obviously required a high degree of skill and careful handiwork to pull off.

You can check out the entirety of Laviani’s glitchy creation after the break.

Slot Sofa Should Have Been Called Tetris Sofa


With someone with a hammer, everything looks like a nail, so we suppose it’s normal that having spent the best part of our lives gaming, Tetris was the first thing we thought of when we set eyes on the Slot Sofa. A handmade creation by Matthew Pawk, pictures of its existence first surfaced a year ago. But the Internet being what it is, they’re going viral again lately, and we’ve just noticed the item.

Slot is a dynamic furniture piece. The sofa system finds new value and diverse functionality by blending the sofa, coffee table, and ottoman. It utilizes the common constructional gaps found between the cushions of the sofa by converting them into tracks for which the table can slide in and out. When slotted, the table acts as a console. When freed, it acts as a coffee table. The magnetically retained sofa cushions always find and keep their optimal position either atop the table for an ottoman or below for a coffee table. Slot features traditional construction with textile upholstery and finished bent plywood

In the passing months the prototype doesn’t seem to have materialized into something you can purchase. So it’s nice to know it exists, but it sort of sucks we can’t buy it.

Thermochromic Table Leaves Print Of Your Large Behind, If Only Temporarily

Proving that designers with a sense of humor still exist, the ‘Linger A Little Longer’ table by Jay Watson, from the UK, is likely to stir up a fair bit of conversation if purchased in the typically heavier-set US of A. It features a thermochromic finish that goes clear when heated, and exposes the wood underneath. As it cools back down, it becomes opaque once more. This means that whatever warm object you place on it will leave a temporary mark, whether that’s plates, your arms, hands or of course, butt. It’s intended as a conversation piece, and we think in that respect, it hits the mark. It’s also kind of expensive, clocking in at a hefty £1 541 (or roughly $2,500) excluding VAT. We don’t know if the VAT applies if you buy from outside the EU, but you’ll have to throw in an extra $500 or so if you have to end up paying that tax. That’s a lot of money for a table that’s likely to give you self-esteem issues. Still, if you want to look at more pictures of that table, or find out where to buy it, hit the jump.

Because This Is The Bookcase You Deserve, But Not The One You Need Right Now

You need a practical bookcase, one that can efficiently serve as storage for the mountains of paperbacks that you refuse to throw once you’ve read them. You need to be able to order them alphabetically, for easy retrieval. You need to look at them in neat stacks. After all, you always get your ducks in a row. But you’re looking at this case, and you know you really want it. We want it too, even if the book mosaic within is making us anxious; unlike Lt. James Gordon’s easy decision to cast Batman as a villain, we’re a little torn.

The $283 price tag, however, and the relative emptiness of the bank account is making the point somewhat moot. Maybe not for you though, so hit the link at the bottom to order yours, if you’re so inclined. They’re made to order, and measure 22 x 32 inch / 56 x 82 cm.

UP Table Looks Good, Is Expensive

You can have nice things. You’re just gonna have to pay a lot for them most of the time. If any of you watched the movie Up!, you probably enjoyed it: it was great! And the table you see here, from British designer Christopher Duffy, is inspired by that movie. If you’ll recall, that was the animation flick where this grumpy old man with a square face takes off to the skies by attaching his house to a bunch of balloons. So, yeah, the balloons…

Working with the illusion of levitation and buoyancy, the UP coffee table is a playful trompe l’oeil, giving the impression that a piece of glass is being suspended by small balloons.

Anyway, a cool looking, whimsical piece of furniture of which there are only 20 being made will set you back a cool £5,800, which is roughly $9,300 in Yankee money.
