Piano with Pop-up LCD

The Mediano piano from Germany’s Craftline Ltd. looks just like a standard white upright piano. But a press of the button reveals it’s hidden secret that pops up from within the inner workings:
Not so surprising that there’s a flatscreen LCD TV in there if you had actually read the title of this post, but still pretty neat. It combines two of your bulkiest pieces of furniture into one. There’s room under the piano to store your cable box, dvr, dvd player and whatever else you hook up to your TV normally.

Designer chair

This Chair, designed by graphic design Stefan Sagmeister is 200 chair designs in one chair. The top of the chair covered with large sheets of paper, each with their own unique design. If you’re tired of one design or it gets dirty, just flip the paper to the next one.
The designer recommends leaving all the papers on the seat and then ripping them off or flipping them over the back to change the pattern on the chair. BUT personally I think it needs to be done the opposite way- starting with all the papers behind the chair because if you spill water or (more likely) beer on this chair, it will soak through all the papers. So I think you’d just want one under you, or a stack of ones you’ve already used. Either way it’s an interesting chair design.
