What better way to measure your kid's growth than by getting him/her a chair that changes sizes with help of a few good old books as he/she grows. That's what the Stack Me Up Chair will do for you. As you can easily see in the images below, the chair can be adjusted to fit readers of all sizes, from kids to grownups. But in order for the Stack Me Up Chair to work you'll need to sacrifice some of your old books and use them to support the chair and the weight of the person using it. The Stack Me Up Chair can be a great chair idea for your children who are just starting school since, as they grow, this chair will grow right beside them. Via Yanko Design
The sculpturistic EarChair is all about creating a space within a space and epitomizes Dutch company Prooff's penchant for designing furniture that encourages "intimate dialogue for public space," . Apart from the expressive minimalism and the path-breaking form factor, the EarChair will offer stimulation to any given environment. The upholstered mammoth lounge chair is available in a plethora of sizes and though Prooff doesn't use any complex techniques it still manages to look fairly ceremonial. The chairs are available in a number of shades and fabric choices and according to Prooff that diverse fabrics "allow for every room to take on its own personal character."
Those of you that want to bring even more eco-friendliness living to your home should consider melting a few old tires into a comfy and very modern-looking Hermit Crab Chair. Well you wouldn't do the melting yourself as designer Joseph Kin seems to have a way of doing that for you. The Hermit Crab Chairs in the images below are made of used tires and ceramic and they sure look pretty comfortable. The old tire offers plenty of elastic support as it makes up for the legs of this Hermit Crab Chair while the ceramic brings ergonomics to the whole design. Anyone ready to order these outstanding eco-friendly Hermit Crab Chairs yet? Via Yanko Design

Las Vegas, the city of sin, indulgence and drunken soirees just got a new hotel and spa located bang in the middle of the new "City Center". The Vdara Hotel & Spa has been designed for the global traveller but its their Silk Road Restaurant that has caught our attention. Designed by the inimitable Karim Rashid, the restaurant is a rich melange of lush colors, eclectic aesthetics and contemporary furniture. The seating in particular deserves a special mention since it plays off beautifully with the given space. The Eboll chairs are from design seat firm Capdell and the chairs are comfortable, luxurious and oh so hip. A total of 178 Eboli chairs by Cadpdell have been installed in the Silk Road Hotel and the chairs correctly highlight the emerging design dynamism creeping in Vegas hotels.
The bench in the images below, Bench #13, is combining two simple design elements, concrete and wood, and could be used as a seating solution in a variety of places from public locations, such as parks, to personal homes, whether for interior purposes or as a modern piece of outdoor furniture. The combination of wood and concrete is unique, and the Bench #13 itself is surely going to be appreciated by your guests or those bystanders looking for a place to rest during their short lunch breaks. But what I'd be really interested to find out is what really happened to Bench number #1 to #13, and what materials were used to build those. Via Niko Yektai

The circular library in the images below is a custom project that combines two things book lovers would like, a good personalized library and a comfortable reading chair. This particular home library has a circular shape and enough storage space for your favorite book titles, which you could keep switching on a regular basis. On top of that this circular library will also offer you a rocking chair's experience and act like your own personal reading cradle while you're reading or getting ready for an afternoon nap. This modern furniture item can be yours for £6000, but you can't have it shipped to your door. Instead you'll have to hire its creator to make it for you, which is going to be equally expensive, but very rewarding if you love books. Or you could buy a Kindle and one of those rocking chairs we've shown you here before instead. Via Thomas Mills
Ready for a new rocking chair design? How about one that can change shapes and even accommodate more than one person at a time? The Sway rocking chair, designed by Markus Krauss, is one such project. This seating solution will rock you all day long and, in order to keep things interesting, it can offer you two different shapes that can better fit with your swaying needs. And in case you'll want to share your sways with anyone else, well that's possible too, since the Sway has the extra space other rocking chairs lack to let you sway with your better half.

Who said that chairs can't have feelings for other chairs? That's particularly the case with these cuddling chairs made by Tjep to brighten up our day. These cuddling chairs seem to be more than just friends, they're made of wood and they're joined together to almost form a bench. Granted it's not the most practical chair design, especially if you're looking for modern chairs for your modern table right now, but the cuddling chairs could be turned into the perfect outdoor bench for your family and friends to enjoy while seating outside. The cuddling chairs come in a variety of colors and, if you so desire, more than two chairs can be bound together, although I hear that two's company and three's a crowd. Via Dornob
Small home demand appropriate furniture and modular designs might be the way to go. That way you could satisfy all your furniture needs while making the most of your current living space. The Sweetch18 is such a piece of modern furniture, which acts both as a table but also as a chair. However, the Sweetch18 can never be a table and a char at the same time, unless you buy two of them. The Sweetch18 looks pretty comfortable as a chair and seems to be a great coffee table too. The design has won an award in Paris and it will be on display at the Inno Design Tech Show in Hong Kong between December 2-4. Anyone ready to order one? Via Cerekapery
The Scene XXL Modular Chair is fit for a king or a queen given its imposing back rest . The high backrest gives it a curiously rare regal vibe and is what separates it from the rest of the clique. Available from Montis, the Scene XXL Modular Chair has been designed Gijs Papavoine who must have imagined the needs of royalty in a more contemporary scenario. The modular system consists of a 1-seater, 2-zits, vis-à-vis-seater and an ottoman which can also be used separately. Available in a number of vibrant hues, the Scene XXL Modular Chair with its attention grabbing backrest discards conventional design rules and evokes a sense of awe!
The following stools designed by Claire-Anne O'Brien look great. In fact I can't imagine more comfortable chairs than the Knitted Chairs in the images below. The Knitted Chairs are made from two simple materials, wood and wool and the obvious question that comes to mind regards their safety. Can we really use the Knitted Chairs to sit on or are they supposed to be just a work of art meant to be displayed in one's home? In case you're thinking about ordering a bunch of such Knitted Chairs for seating purposes, make sure you ask more details about the way they work and particularly about whether they can sustain the weight of an average human body or not.

The Surfer Sofa is another modular piece of furniture, a sofa that's comprised of three independent, differently shaped and differently colored pieces, which can be arranged around the apartment according to your needs and requirements. The use of wool is very much welcomed and will surely make the Surfer Sofa one of the most desired seating solutions in your house for both you and your guests. More importantly, the Surfer Sofa doesn't have to be a sofa all the time as each piece that's part of it can act as a single chair or lounge. Not to mention that at night the Surfer Sofa can be easily turned into a comfortable bed for your overnight guests, and that wool will certainly play its part when it comes to offering them a good night's sleep.

Well how do you like the seating/sleeping concept in the images above? We're looking at either a very modern sleeping idea or at a very comfortable, and also modern, seating solution. The Moon Bench in the images below comes in two flavors, Half- and Full-Moon and both projects are pretty daring. We don't have all the details regarding this ultra "futuristic-modern" seating/sleeping solution, but these designs are particularly pleasing for the eyes. I don't know about you but I'd prefer the Half-Moon Bench for my daytime naps since I consider these particular designs rather sleeping solutions than just seating concepts. Anyone particularly interested in such interior Moon Bench ideas? Via 2modern
It's time to reinvent Swinging Chairs, wouldn't you agree? These seating solutions are so comfortable and so entertaining since they're ready to bring some rock'n'roll in your seating experience, but why not replace the old designs with something a bit more modern? Designer Dhara Kabaria has imagined a variety of new Swinging Chairs and they look nothing like what you'd expect from a swing chair. These concept swing chairs are made from bamboo and steel and they look like they're ready to rock you right away. They might be perfect for your porch or patio, and also for indoor use but the question is, will they be comfortable enough? After all you would want to spend as much time as possible in those Swinging Chairs, wouldn't you? Via Studio Alternatives
The Trick Bookcase in the images below is not just a simple bookcase. It is, in fact, a lot more complex than that. The Trick Bookcase is apparently a kitchen table, although it can be placed anywhere else too, that also hides a couple of chairs right underneath it. Both the table and the chairs act as fancy storage solution, but make sure you don't spill your cook books, journals, and whatever else you decide to store down there during the day while you're pulling and pushing those chairs away. The Trick Bookcase modular furniture concept should definitely be considered for your crowded small apartment but not only. If there's one thing I can object to is not having enough legroom under the chair but you can't have it all, can you? Via Sakurah
Yesterday we showed you a table made out of bent wood that looked like a flower, the Petalas Coffee Table, and today we have for you a matching seat for it, the Cervo Chair. This seating concept is made out of various strips of molded plywood and the whole thing looks like a very flexible deer to me. The Cervo Chair will certainly make an impression with your guests, and although it looks very fragile at first sight, I'm sure it will be able to offer you plenty of support and comfort. The Cervo Chair is available in natural playwood and in natural wood upholstered in black leather, so go ahead, choose your deer-like Cervo Chair version now! Via Antonio Pio Saracino
