In today’s world where space is at a premium and people demand more from their purchases, it’s more important than ever that the furniture you buy for your home does all it can. But there’s a difference between the genuinely good ideas and the gimmicks, so let’s take a look at five of the best.
These man-chairs are well known throughout the world, and have appeared in many films and TV shows as the bachelors seating of choice (perhaps most notably in Friends in the 1990s). However what many people may not know is that these superb seats have kept up with the times and now as well as the standard drinks cooler and telephone also come Bluetooth controls! So now you can tie your chair into any Bluetooth combatable gadgets you own.
Why put up with a ‘normal’ coffee table, when you can cram an arcade machine inside? There are several models around, but all feature an LCD screen mounted below a toughened glass top, enabling you to play everything from retro MAME games, DVDs and even the latest FPS games on your table! Most also come with wireless controls so you can even link your coffee table with your La-Z-Boy!
These days more and more of us are living our day lives sat at a desk, which many doctors advise can be bad for our long term health. Here’s one slightly extreme way of solving that problem, the desk/treadmill combo! Giving you a work top at the correct height, you can stroll along while getting your work done (although we would advise you don’t go too fast or you might not get as much work done as you would like!).
So you are looking for a pool table for your home? Or maybe an air hockey table? Or was it a table tennis table? Well why not have all three, or maybe even more in the space of just one? That’s what a multi-games table will deliver you, with up to 40 games being available on just one table! These table use either a rotational design or a lift-off lift-on method. Although these tables might not be quite as good as their dedicated counterparts (as they say jack of all trades is master of none), if you are limited on space they can’t be beaten!
In the same vein as the multi-games table above, what do you do if you want a games table but don’t even have the space for one? Pretty much everyone has a dining table in their home, but did you know you can now combine a dining table with a pool table! These cheeky tables manage to look like a full size designer dining table, but when you remove the top a fully playable pool table lies underneath. Perfect for some after dinner entertainment.
