Sometimes, it’s really difficult to get your butt off the couch to get a workout in. But what if you didn’t have to? New concept furniture from L’Ecole de Design Nantes Atlantique attempts to make that possible. Designed to optimize both fitness and, well, chillaxing, this furniture set could make every couch potato’s dreams come true.

The product, called “Panorama,” is basically a glorified carpet. This carpet can be a substitute both for traditional living room furniture and traditional exercise equipment. The set has a couple of fixed backrests and a few customizable parts. You can add accessories, such as lamps, directly to the structure to make it personalized based on your needs.

Now it gets really interesting. A portion of the carpet can be moved and put into various positions via a slot system. Once placed in the slot, the furniture is ready for you to get your sweat on. Crunches, pushups, and more are facilitated by the different heights and portions of the carpet so you can use your body and your couch to get the most out of your workout.


This might be simultaneously the coolest and most ludicrous fitness concept we’ve ever seen. We want to hear your thoughts: Are you loving it or is this completely crazy? Talk to us in the comments below or come speak your mind over on Twitter.
