Portal Couch

One thing I do every night is fall asleep on my couch watching TV. Usually I wake up around 1:30 a.m. and consider the option of relocating to my bed, but I think the last time I actually did this was November of 2010. However, were my couch to be circumscribed by a flaming blue or orange portal such that I could simply roll off of it, through the inter-spatial connector, and onto my mattress, maybe I'd end up there more often. Or, depending on how GLaDOS is feeling, maybe I'd end up in the bed of Mila Kunis. More likely though, it would be Oprah Winfrey or Screech from Saved by the Bell. Man I hate that guy. I don't like Screech either.

Brian Hotovec originally designed and built this 5-piece bench set for his wedding. It comes with 3 curved and 2 half-round pieces, all covered in Enduratex white vinyl, and fitted with LED lights at the undersides. The lights set to any of 16 different colors in case you seek more of a Leisure Suit Larry than a Portal aesthetic.

Benches measure 24" wide and 85" long at their longest tips, and half-rounds have a 24" radius.
