Don’t think of it as a bean bag. The Yogibo Max isn’t a cheap pseudo-chair of the sort found in so many dorm rooms of college students and living rooms of the unemployed. Sit on a Yogibo Max and the experience is — luxurious. Stretchy cotton-lycra fabric wraps around near frictionless beads that conform to your body without being squishy.

We’ve seen plenty of vintage doors turned into dinning room tables. And we’ve seen a few vintage doors turned into desk work stations.

Typically, they are available for few dollars each—most people just want to get rid of them so they’ll stop clogging up the attic. But that’s only because they don’t know how to turn their vintage luggage into a vondrous do-it-yourself suitcase drawer dresser.

We recently lifted up the cushions of our sofa and found a whole trove of coins, keys, books and assorted knicknacks hiding underneath. Our guess is that Japanese artist Daisuke Motogi had a similar experience. And that, the spirit of “If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em,” he designed the Lost In Sofa.
The Metrofarm Bed features an angled headrests that helps you chill in bed in an optimal position. But, really, this vondrous-looking bed is less about anything practical and more about falling asleep surrounded by walnut.
Most bookshelves are for squares. But not the A2 Angle Shelf by Seattle-based designer Sara Larsson. It features 18 cubby holes, each with a different shape. The cubbies in the middle row all have an angled bottom, letting books stay upright sans bookend.US$1,753
