take your daily exercise in the comfort of your own living room while relaxing; perhaps in front of the television. this is not your average ugly bit of work-out gear that looks unsightly in the family room but this elegant piece of furniture doubles as a normal chaise longue.

it is equipped with authentic looking oars that have wheels on each end, enabling the user to row themselves around the room or indeed any free space.

during the television adverts you may like to row yourself into the kitchen to make a cup of tea or perhaps fluffy needs to be let in at the backdoor.

hark! is that a knock at the door? row yourself to the window to make sure that you are not interrupting your exercise by opening the door to a salesman or worse, an electioneering politician.

obviously, the oars don’t just stick out at the sides. that would be silly; you could cause all sorts of pandemonium with that arrangement - people could get hurt, ornaments smashed, in-laws tripped… no, the oars are designed to tuck sensibly and neatly below the main chassis of the boat/sofa as you row yourself about your living space.

when not in use, all the exercise bits and pieces can be neatly folded away leaving just your ordinary looking couch.

       Although I rowed up here to place a bun, I'm wondering it there is a motorized version?

       Ha, yes I like that alternative, a kind of outboard attachment would be great.

       hello...it would be an INboard motor...   

       [po] I just love the image of myself rowing my giant futon around the house...can't navigate the hall.
