Hybrid Furniture, by Paul Kweton

Paul Kweton is a designer who successfully manipulates wood, turning it into modern furniture. Its piece, Hybrid Furniture is a mixture of an old school rocking chair and a dog house. Weirdly enough, the result actually looks great. Made from plywood, the Hybrid Furniture allows you to rest on the comfortable chair, while your favorite canine pet can take a nap beneath you (literally). The chair has a special opening that’s big enough for a dog to fit in.
