Finally, lots of mouse pads are finding their way into the landfill. Instead of tossing them, why not make a sofa out of them?
This beautiful sofa from Urban Collection was a concept designed by Marta Antoszkiewicz, whose Bulb Table and Table with Chairs have been featured on Freshome. This sofa’s two heat-formed planks and minimal fasteners form the basis of this clean, modern design. Its cantilevered backrest is locked into place when you lay your weight on it, and its leather cushions slip in through large cutouts in the top surface, resting on the second curve.
This sofa that looks like a rug is a great design, and I don’t know how nobody thought of it before. This piece of furniture is called East Meets West and it was designed by Tonio de Roover. The idea behind this “carpet sofa” is pretty simple. Although it looks awesome, I don’t think you could sleep very well on this sofa.
