Of course, seats are for sitting, but if you’ve got a cozy old armchair in your bedroom, you know that it’s rarely open for a comfy repose.

The Octopus Chair by Francesco Biagini knows that, in part, seating is used for storage. Bags, jackets, sweaters, scarves, and even some unexpected items may find themselves flung over the backrest, but this peculiar piece of furniture is equipped to handle that.

A white cushioned metal frame makes up the structure of the stool, while bent extensions form horizontal and vertical slings on which you can rest those articles that just aren’t ready to be put away. Simplified from eight tentacles down to four ball-topped appendages, the Octopus Chair by Francesco Biagini can act as a hanger for hats as well.
