It's not easy to find an oversized couch that fits into a modern decor, but the Fulham Leather Sofa ($3,500-$5,000) should do just fine. Featuring a deep seat, foot-wide arms, and Matador leather upholstery with a matte finish and reverse seaming, the Fulham is hand built with a kiln-dried, triangle block hardwood frame and foam seats supported by coil springs, meaning it will provide optimum comfort for years to come whether you spring for the 96", 108", or gargantuan 120" model.
Add a slice of style to your home with the Neutra Boomerang Chair ($1,500).

Used to be that buying a massage chair meant consigning yourself to having a Star Wars-worthy mechanical throne sticking out like a sore thumb in your living area. The Panasonic EP-MS40 Massage Chair ($2,500) puts this idea to bed with a simple, slightly-retro design that will mercifully blend in to plenty of decors without looking like there's a cyborg trapped on the inside, while offering up every bit of the neck-, back-, and leg-pleasing massage action of its Terminator-like cousins.
Lean back and relax in the Spinnaker Chair ($TBA). This unique seat features a back made from authentic sails, adding a touch of the seven seas to your environment, while the spring steel frame, foam and cospoflex cushions, and spring-loaded tilt functionality let you find just the right angle for reading, watching, or napping. Pair with the Spinnaker Footstool for maximum laziness.
Following the recent mine collapse turned feel-good story in Chile, you might think mine furniture was specially suited to the underground. You'd be wrong. Instead, Mine Furniture ($TBA) is a unique lineup of fireplaces, interior design objects, chairs, and other items crafted from old marine mines — you know, the kind used to blow up submarines — taken from an old Soviet military facility on Naissaar Island in the Gulf of Finland. Luckily for you, the explosives were burnt out of the mines nearly 20 years ago, although you might want to be careful with that cigar just in case. [Thanks, Jim]

Don't have what it takes to become a real pilot? Live out your WWII fighter pilot fantasies in the Aviator Chair ($1,300).

It seems like the last hundred or so felt products we've seen were either bags or gadget cases, so the Bufa Chair ($760) comes as a breath of fresh air. Meant to pay homage to tailored attire, the Bufa features a gray felt seat and back, folded and threaded together with loose-hanging rope, while a colored ribbon adds a touch of flair without turning the Bufa into a garish, brightly-hued mess.
Whether or not you have a Coca-Cola shrine in your house, there's reason to be excited about the 111 Navy Chair ($230). Based on Emeco's classic 1006 Navy Chair, the 111 is made from 111 recycled plastic Coke bottles, in all keeping three million plastic Coke bottles out of landfills each year. Surprisingly, it's available in a number of colors, so you don't have to design a whole room around Coke's iconic red to enjoy the benefits of this simple chair.
Have a dual-purpose workspace? Hide your office away in the Mayfair Steamer Secretary Trunk ($3,000). Built by antiques dealer/craftsman Timothy Oulton of London, this oversized steamer trunk hides away a pull-down desktop, tons of drawers, each with room for a label — lest you forget where you put those paper clips — leather-edged canvas lining, an exterior of distressed, aniline-dyed cigar leather, and wheels on the bottom for easy opening, closing, and mobility. We suppose you could also hide an actual secretary inside, but she'd better be really flexible.

Mmm.
