Everyone loves a good nap, and we doubt you'll need one of these things just to catch a quick one. But if you're so inclined to have one of these egg-like cocoons in your crib, its ergonomic mattress will surely aid in an afternoon siesta. The Napshell ($TBA) was designed by seven architecture students for indoor or outdoor use, and can also be ordered with different modules like doors and a dobly-surround system.
When we first saw pictures of this chair, we were almost entirely sure we¡¯d have to have one. Designed for Tendo Japan in 1961, the Kashiwado Chair by Isamu Kenmochi ($9,950) has become a true design icon, yet remains rather difficult to find. Made of polished cedar, there is no question that the chair will last a lifetime ¡ª just ask the famous Sumo wrestler Kashiwado for whom the chair was created.
