Bodice Rocker - Pop-Up Lounger

By: on September 24, 2013

Weebles wobble but they don't fall down, and Bodice Rockers fall down but they get right back up and stand just as tall as they did before. So I guess they're more similar to Rocky Balboa than Weebles. But they're not fighters or, like, aggressive at all. In fact, the purpose of the curved modern loungers is to stay out of the way. They convert from utilitarian furniture to space-saving, yet striking anthropomorphic sculpture at the the flick of a wrist. So, um, maybe they're most similar to Optimus Prime? Oh shut up, Cornelius, you don't know how to elucidate rich and meaningful metaphors either.

Another superb design by Splinter Works--the same artists behind the carbon fiber Hammock Bathtub--the Bodice Rocker stores vertically as art that rocks to the touch and gives an almost weightless appearance. A stronger nudge sends the chaise on a 90-degree trip to its more familiar horizontal layout, and a place I like to call 3:00 Nap Land. The pictured lounger was fabricated from white vele-leather, though pieces are fully customizable both in color and shape, per customer requests. For example, when viewing the Bodice Rocker upright, many people perceive a bunny rabbit or a woman bending over. I would like Splinter Works to fashion me a pair of these living room centerpieces in black, and I would like each lounger to follow the curvature of one half of Darth Vader's helmet.

Bodice Rocker pricing is based on materials and size but, yes, you should probably plan on cashing in at least part of your 401K if you're serious about purchasing one.
