The $20,000 Designer Jungle Gym for Your Living Room
Is your DVR full of re-runs of The Beverly Hillbillies and The Twilight Zone? Do traditional furniture sets bore you to tears? If your desire for '60s culture couples with about $16,000 to burn, then drop everything and get this Living Tower that will put the playgrounds of your childhood to shame.
Designed in 1968 by Danish artist Verner Panton, the Living Tower stands 6.5 feet tall and is constructed of upholstered foam over a sturdy wooden frame. It's meant to create living space on all four levels of the bold, three-dimensional structure. The goal of the composition is to promote interaction and communication—and with what is essentially a giant, red piece of playground equipment in your family room, you'll definitely have a conversation-starter.
Complete the look with a pair of the matching amoeba highback chairs (pictured above) for a cool $2,750 a pop. And if you're apprehensive about dropping over $20 Gs on your dream '60s furniture set, well, chill out, since they're offering free shipping.
