If a Tree Falls In Your Living Room and There's No One To Sit On It, Does It Really Become a Bench?

Bringing a bit of nature indoors, artist Tal Gur's Monolog bench is designed to look like your living room furniture was created with a few hefty swings of Paul Bunyan's ax.

When toppled over, the branches of this faux wooden tree prop it up so it serves as a long functional bunch. And the remaining stump does double-duty as a matching side table. But when extra seating for company isn't needed, the tree can also be returned to its proud upright position where its outstretched branches will then serve as a handy coat rack, or ring toss game.
