Now this is a cool couch. The Sentient sofa is an original design that combines long wool Icelandic sheepskin and reclaimed American oak boards to produce an incredibly comfortable, and highly unique, piece. The sheepskin wool is a bit chaotic and not for the faint of heart, but if you're looking for a true conversation starter in your living room, then the Sentient is definitely worth a look. Sizes range from 6" to 8" and is a mix of warm beige, brown and golden colors.

Montana Treehouse Retreat at Glacier National Park
As kids, we dreamed of building tree houses big enough to live and play in. Today, thanks to Airbnb, such a tree house exists. Located in Glacier National Park is this 500 square foot tree house. A spiral staircase wraps around a giant Douglas fir tree and leads you into the main living area. There are 2 outside deck areas featuring gorgeous views of the surrounding lakes, mountains and forests. There is a full kitchen, dishwasher and stove as well as a bathroom with full sized shower and toilets. The master suite has a comfortable queen mattress and additional sleeping quarters in the common room accommodate up to 4 guests. For activities, there is Whitefish Mountain Ski Resort, Flathead Lake, and plenty of fishing, rafting, boating, hiking and more Montanan adventures.
The Space Smart Home - Iohouse
The Space Smart Home by design firm iOhouse aims to be an image of what a home of the future may look like. Every aspect of this house was designed to be 'smart' from the 220v generator and solar panels that power the entire home, to the fully integrated networking systems, cameras, connected devices and intelligent appliances. The home is designed to run completely 'off the grid' and the clean, modern and sleek aesthetics truly look like something out of a sci-fi movie. In addition to the smart interior, the house is completely modular and able to be moved and situated in any urban, rural or off the grid locale. Additional points of note from the company:
