All I wanna do is ... sink right into that seat. Doshi Levien's Paper Planes line of reading chairs are designed to help you do just that -- they're contemporary like the bulk of their esteemed furniture projects, and their asymmetrical shape was actually crafted specifically for comfort, making the chair as sophisticatedly practical as dad's leather LA-Z-BOY, just more smooth and sleek and effortlessly less burly. And this chair can actually recline in more ways than one. It was actually paper folding that fueled the creation of this swanky lounger. Furniture design may have been pushed against the grain in the conception of this piece of art, but upon further inspection, the lines and angles of the Paper Planes chairs seem to flow together in a way that that makes sound, geometric sense. Upon even closer inspection, you'll notice that some chairs actually shimmer with Swarovsky crystals that trace the graph paper-like grooves along the chair's many planes -- talk about baller. Unwind and relish in the creativity of the planet's edgiest reading chair while really indulging yourself by sitting on upholstery laced with the world's most famous crystals. We'd all probably be reading a bit more if we had a reading chair like one of Levien's Paper Planes. To afford a piece, however, I might just have to take your money.

Unlike many of my friends, I actually like firm furniture and beds. If I sleep on a soft and mushy bed, I wake up with a sore back. Guess I could blame it on my semester abroad in Taiwan where I slept on a bamboo mat for four months. Hard as a rock beds and wooden furniture are now my priorities when shopping for my home. That's when I discovered the beauty of tufted furniture! I know tufted pieces can seem really old fashioned and taken right out of Versailles, but I can imagine just getting one or two and having it look super chic with my minimalist (read: IKEA) furniture. Best of all, it's a nice balance between firm and soft. I really like the convertible couch found over at PB Teen which doubles as a sofa and a full size bed, and this velvet ottoman from Brocade Home which does triple duty as an ottoman, coffee table, and extra seating. I can imagine Goldilocks finding tufted furniture "just right." Take a look at my slideshow for more!
