Putting the sleep in sleeper-sofa

It's a bizarre thing to wake up from a dream where you've been building with LEGO bricks. Your hands are slightly cramped and you keep wondering why you wanted to build an oversized LEGO candle. Maybe this is what Frank Lloyd Wright felt like all the time.

I keep a notebook by my bed in an effort to remember story ideas or sentences for whatever I'm writing. Ledes and transitions always seem to come in the few minutes before sleep.

Somewhere in my subconscious is the intersection of design blogs, LEGO ideas, and Flickr. The result is LEGO home goods from a conceptual brick stapler to plant holder. It's the real mid-century modern look from Denmark.
