The Chairless Strap: The Chair That Wasn’t

Behold the Chairless, a seat strap designed to make you feel like you’re sitting in, um, a chair. The belt-like design is actually nothing new and originates from an Indian tribe in Paraguay. Looks like some design nerds just decided to make the product cuter by adding preppy color combinations (they remind us of those ribbon belts that were oh-so popular with the prepsters a few years ago). We say: perfect for outdoor summer concerts, waits in line for the latest H&M collab, or substitute furniture when you’re broke and too poor to buy a living room set.

Have A Very Techy Breakfast

This laptop table tray by Zyane Tan combines two of our favorite activities: eating and computing. Now we might not feel like such slobs when we usually get crumbs all over the keyboard while browsing the morning news. Too bad we don’t have an extra $3,000 handy. [Unplggd] Keep reading »

Acne Does Furniture

The line features totally cool-looking pieces, even if they don’t seem to register on the comfy-meter. Check out the whole collection, after the jump! Keep reading »

In 2010, Bordello Chic Is The New Home Decor Trend

The LA Times takes a closer look at “bordello chic,” the latest trend in interior design that is sexing up businesses and nightclubs on the Left Coast. At club Voyeur, the chairs are all SM-themed, with lace-up corsets, leather straps, and restraint harnesses. Taking a nod from old-fashioned men’s clubs and bordellos, the look is a mix of upscale old-school and 21st century bondage chic. According to one designer, Lori Erenberg, this kinky impulse is a reflection of the economic climate. “I think this look is very timely, because there’s a lot of pain going on right now,” Erenberg opines. At the L.A. outpost of the racy lingerie-and-adult-goods shop Coco de Mer, customers try on undergarments in a “confessional” booth-cum-dressing room. Designer Aimee Less, who designed the Corset chair seen here, says her piece “evokes both pleasure and pain, freedom and enslavement.” Sounds interesting, but how comfortable it is depends on the kinks of the sitter.

The Croatian furniture designer lives in Vienna, where she runs Kabiljo Inc., and her PRETTYPRETTY collection features this very hirsute seat, as well as hairy stools and furry ottomans.
