It’s REAL.

Designed by OGE CreativeGroup as “a fusion of furniture and playground,” the Giant Birdsnest is pure farmgirl fantasy.

“The wooden nest is filled with highly comfortable egg-shaped sitting poofs, which allow ergonomic sitting positions and various configurations for informal meetings and social exchange,” explain creators Merav Eitan and Gaston Zahr. “The nest comes in various sizes, from a small and intimate nest for one, up to a big version, which can host 16 people at once. The soft space is a perfectly comfortable and inspiring place for resting, browsing the Web, reading, relaxing, loving, talking, briefing, discussing … Simply jump in and enjoy.”

Wondering about DIY, aren’t you.

    THAT is cool! Everybody would always want to come to my house if I made one of those (yes, DIY!). As for the word… my poor tongue is getting all tangled up with my brain practicing that one. Perhaps it is best that this word stays quietly in my notebook ~ where it can nidificate. (oh it is fun to type ~ spell check does not like it!)

    Now, that is cool and very artistic! It goes way beyond the old original bean bag craze of the 1960s. My only wonder is if you can get yourself up easily, as in old bones and old age get up easy. I can sort of see myself stuck in there like a beached whale!

    I think it would be fun just to have one or two eggs in my living room or on my bed. I have a reading corner in my room where I have all sorts of pillows piled up, with a small canopy over head, where I like to do my reading while relaxing. I could put one or two of them, (egg pillows), in my reading corner! How fun would that be!
