Living Room Hammocks

Koala 45 by Stal Collectief Has a Large Sling Surface for Communal Lounging

— October 14, 2012 — Art & Design
There's so much to admire about Koala 45 by Stal Collectief. The concept is an eccentric one that creates a sort of room within a room and elevates it from the floor. It would be perfect for placement in large, cold loft interiors and for new age offices.

There would be no need to partition off an area for couches and armchairs because the 12-bolt timber structure defines its own intimate space. Incorporating a ladder that leads six steps up, the sophisticated blanket fort offers users a flexible deck of fabric that makes sitting and sleeping wonderfully comfortable.

A matching canopy creates a soft ceiling and a cozy enclosure and a hole in the center allows you to install warm lighting. How pleasant it would be to curl up on the Koala 45 by Stal Collectief in a sea of pillows!
