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.

Parkipelago - Artificial Island Chain
This is a pretty neat find for 'real estate' fans. Fokstrot - a Danish design studio - has started a project called the Copenhagen Islands. The islands are actually man-made platforms that will be daisy-chained throughout Copenhagen's southern harbor to resemble a sort of 'parkipelago.' Each platform will serve a unique purpose: a cafe, a sauna, a diving board, a mussel farm - and as a chain they can support full-featured event space for concerts gatherings and festivals. Using clean design and simple aesthetic, these islands are a smart way to take advantage of the beautiful and abundant Copenhagen waters and attract tourists and locals alike.
