"Flying Carpet" Doubles As A Lounge Chair

Something more than a simple rug, Flying Carpet means life at floor level, a plain and relaxing topography, a domestic oasis. Its design makes it a comfortable and playful three-dimensional space to sit down, stretch out and relax, both at home and in public areas. The carpet is made by draping hand-loomed New Zealand wool over gray felt-covered wedges that have just enough give to emulate the comfort of a padded chair. In this way, the Flying Carpet tackles a common domestic problem: People love to park themselves on the floor at home to read or watch TV or whatever. But you can’t do it for very long or your back will suffer. Here, thanks to the built-in back supports, you can lounge around on the carpet all you want pain-free. Maybe this thing really is magic.
