Having meals outside your home (and no, I don’t mean eating out at restaurants) is one of the simplest pleasures of life. The great outdoors provides the perfect ambiance for dining, but unfortunately, strong winds might make for a messy meal.
No place in the world is safe from earthquakes. They’re one of the most terrifying natural calamities because you can’t help but feel so small and insignificant when the ground begins to shake – and just doesn’t seem to stop.
This isn’t the first time that we’ve seen a convertible piece of furniture (remember the Land Peel?) Anyway, designer Matali Crasset’s “Sweet Talk and Dream” is more straightforward and conventional, though.
Nothing says 1980s like Pac-Man. If I had saved all of the quarters I pumped into that game, I would be a very rich man, but I wouldn’t have such fond memories of the game. Too bad I didn’t save just enough quarters to buy this awesome mosaic Pac-Man table.

One late night, while he was walking home, David Franklin passed by a dark alley and was accosted by three thugs. They tackled him and held him down. Then the leader of the group held him up against a wall with his shirt collar, and with a cigarette-damaged voice and a beer-soaked breath, screamed in his face, “How can archetypal furniture facilitate the sharing of memories?”
I’m definitely a big fan of pixel art. Whether they’re found in paintings, furniture, housewares, or costumes, pixels are still pretty cool in my book. So when I saw that this fashion house is featuring an entire collection of stuff inspired by pixels, my inner geek got all hot and bothered.

If you’ve just moved into a bare, new apartment and find yourself strapped for cash, then the Land Peel could very well be your next best friend. You don’t have to spring for any furniture or desks or chairs or dining tables, for that matter.
