A piece of furniture that makes money might sound like something that only exists one of Mitt Romney's mansions, but thanks to Sam Lomingshum's Artful Dodger rocking chair, maybe the rest of the world can start making a little extra coin too.
Without question, the best part about cleaning your couch is discovering all the loose change that has accumulated in the cracks between the cushions. On occasion, you might even come up with with enough money to buy a full 12-inch sub at your favourite sandwich shop (which might seem paltry, but when you're dealing with found money, it's pretty much like stumbling upon Black Beard's buried treasure).
With this idea in mind, Lomingshum engineered the Artful Dodger rocking chair to recline to the point where the person using it is practically in the prone position to lose money. In this sublimely reclined state, not only does the unsuspecting sitter feel extremely comfortable, they're also likely to spill the contents of their pockets onto the chair which is also deviously designed to capture any coins that happen to fall out.
It might not make you as rich as Romney, but, if you get nough of your friends to sit on it, the chair probably makes for a pretty solid investment.
