I'm a bachelor. As such, I always look a bit off (I don't own a full-length mirror) and my clothes are wrinkled (I don't own an ironing board). So when my editor forwarded me a link from Boing Boing Gadgets about this combo ironing board/full-length mirror I figured she was giving me a hint. Thankfully she just wanted to share it with all of you.
And look how cool it is. In an urban apartment like mine, every square inch is valuable. That's why items with dual (or more!) uses are so great. And this one has a theme: making you look better. That's awesome.
I'm also a fan of things that transform, as this does, albeit simply. Right now it's just a concept by French designer Aïssa Logerot, but I wouldn't be surprised to see these showing up at IKEAs all over the world pretty soon.
I mean, who wouldn't want to disguise their vanity with function? As a guy who likes cute nerd girls, if I ever meet a girl with one of these in her apartment, I might go ring shopping.
