A-Lounge is a design I didn’t think I needed until I saw it. I used to love to sit on the floor when I was younger, but now, it’s just harder to get comfortable. However, I think this might help me stretch out my floor-time.


Designed by Assembly (Pete Oyler and Nora Mattingly), the A-lounge is kind of like a sofa substitute for your floor. It’s basically a giant backrest and seat cushion you can lean up against and get comfy.



The design is made up of three parts: an upholstered wedge, a quilted camelhair cushion filled with buckwheat hulls, and a natural sheepskin throw.
