Self parking chairs?

nissan-self-driving-parking-chair

Nissan has developed chairs that return to their parking spot. Clap once and all the chairs around the boardroom table move themselves back into perfect alignment, ready for the next meeting. In an open office, clap again and all the desk chairs are neater than the desks. The bases of the chairs have batteries, motors, [...]

Umbra Shift Hanging chair

Although I do not watch as much commercial television as I once did, my new favorite type of shows lately are the ones where people are moving into smaller houses or living spaces. Watching how people downsize and try to get the most out of every inch of space can become a puzzle, and I [...]

If you're reading this post, you probably share a common problem that all gadget packrats share. We have lots of devices but no good way to store them while they are not being used. I keep my older MacBook Air on the end table next to my side of our double Lazy Boy couch, Jeanne [...]

snap-design-your-own-furniture-2

Have you ever built your own furniture?  I'm not talking about creating a beautifully handcrafted piece of heirloom-quality furniture like a Chippendale chair.  I'm talking about using pallets or screwing some legs onto a board - either because you like the bohemian style or because buying a piece of furniture isn't in the budget?  SNAP, [...]

bluetooth-speaker-ottoman

I don't normally think of Bluetooth speakers as being big enough to use as a footstool, but this one is.  The Bluetooth Speaker Ottoman has a quilted faux leather exterior, so it blends in with your decor.  It's available in black only, and it measures 18" tall X 17.5" wide X 18" deep.  It has [...]

mosquito-thwarting-hammock

Nothing disturbs a relaxing nap in the hammock under the shade tree like a swarm of mosquitos or other biting insects.  The Mosquito Thwarting Hammock keeps the pests at bay because it's covered by a 4-sided canopy made of super-fine nylon netting; it unzips on two sides for easy entry.  The roof of 180g polyester [...]

revolve-chair-with-speakers

This is not the typical folding outdoor chair!  Although the rEvolve chair does fold up into a carry bag, that's where the similarities end with most outdoor chairs.  The rEvolve has a swivel base, so you can turn from side and side - even a full 3600 - and never miss the action of a game. [...]

I love my Lazy Boy couch and my double recliner, but most furniture items want you to adapt to them instead of the other way around.  You can't easily move a recliner around your home from room to room or fold it up and shove it under the bed when you don't need it. But with [...]
