While it might not be immediately obvious, this is a rocking chair. The KU DIR KA, designed by Paulius Vitkauskas, isn't your ordinary rocking chair, but the more we look at it, the more it grows on us. Of course, your downstairs neighbors may not be as thrilled with it as we are, since we suspect that the rocking action might sound a bit like late night tap dancing to the family that lives below us.

Lucky for us, we don't like them much anyway. The KU DIR KA comes in either red or black, and retails for US$549.00. It isn't entirely practical, but it sure is pretty!
