Backpack Sofa

I need one of these for the Gear Junkie office! As seen today on the GetOutdoors blog and home-décor site Apartment Therapy, Belgian designers Quinze & Milan have teamed up with backpack-maker Eastpak to create the “Backpack Sofa.” The mash-up design appears to take Eastpak fabric, zippers, labels, and straps and tag them onto a cushy big block of a couch. Now which backpack pocket did I drop that remote control into?. . . —Stephen Regenold
