That ratty old bean bag chair was fine when your were an undergrad, but why deal with all of the verbal jabs and piercing stares now that your lady-friend has coerced you into moving in? You clearly can’t leave your Xbox 360 behind, and of course you need a proper gaming-cathedra to keep you on your virtual toes. You know very well however, that at some point your disfigured bean bag / dog bed goes or you go. Enter the Jump Seat ottoman. Announced last week by high-end multimedia furniture and seating manufacturer Salamander Designs, the Jump Seat is a sophisticated modern leather ottoman that your girl will love. With a simple pull on the top of the ottoman it transforms into a comfortable gaming throne and even provides some storage for your gear. More details in terms of pricing and availability will be made available at CES, so you’ll need to put up with the little lady’s hostility for a while longer. Made from luxurious leather and high-quality materials, each Jump Seat will be manufactured to order so the price point won’t be low. Consider it an investment in your comfort and your girl’s sanity.
