“Backpack mogels Eastpak teamed up with design studio Quinze & Milan to create this catch-all, carry-all sofa that’s part of their ‘built to resist’ collection. Although at first glance it seems a little strange, we think it’s a great idea for an all in one home office. No really! Think about it!
In small apartments having a home office can be difficult, even if you’re working out of a closet. When we first saw this sofa, we couldn’t really decide what to put in all those pockets, snacks? Remote Controls? Tea Cup Poodles? But then it dawned on us… what if it held all of our office supplies? The pockets are large enough to hold file folders, books, supplies, even your laptop. They’d be the perfect place to holster small electronics, cords, adapters, battery chargers — you name it. As long as your cat doesn’t use it for a scratching post, we’re not against the idea in a small space. We like the idea of at-hand storage and it would be much easier to stash away all your gaming controls and not have to put them in a box, on the other side of the room, just to make them look pretty.
What do you think? Is the backpack sofa here to stay or just another crazy designer idea?
