East meets west
In San Francisco’s japantown there used to be a store with an amazing flying carpet bed – it used a wonderful u-shaped steel base (with the base of the U at the head of the bed) to appear to float, unsupported, about 10 inches off the floor.
You’re gonna have to draw a picture of that for me.
Uh… defocus, Islamophobes. Prayer rug? Flying carpet? Hmmmm… Nope, no link there.

Did it ever take off?
There’s one of those, here at the central library in Rotterdam. It’s usually vacant as I suspect most people aren’t sure if it’s really a chair…
Want in shag!
@Anon and MrsBug: Our three cats would have a treat.
Would be nice if this sofa actually flies…
My cats would love that. expensive rug to shed on and shred + couch = happy kittehs. It’s like peanut butter and chocolate in cat form.
My cats would love it.
What is this a rug blog? j/k :)
I’m somewhat doubtful of this being comfortable (except for MrsBug’s cats) but brilliant idea anyway and looks good
That looks like formed plywood with a carpet on… Not going to be be the sofa you sink into, anyway
Just look at this carpet that thinks it’s a bear! Just look at it.
oh wait, wrong post…
