I’ve done the bean bag thing. I’ve even done the rocking gaming chair thing. While those were relatively comfortable, I could use something a bit more sophisticated in the living room. Which is why the Jump Seat Ottoman, announced yesterday by Salamander Designs, is quite appealing.
When closed, the Jump Seat would allow me to masquerade as an adult with a fairly refined ottoman. When open, the kids can continue to kick my butt on Xbox Live. I also appreciate the recessed compartment to store my wireless controller and headset. Hopefully it’s as comfortable as it is practical.
Salamander’s PR rep tells me availability and pricing will be announced at CES. Though, each ottoman will be a custom order (type of leather, color, accessories) and prices will vary – I expect each Jump Seat to run at least several hundred dollars.
