I can’t decide if these swinging office chairs are amazing or terrible

One complaint I have with The Verge‘s office set-up is, it doesn’t feel enough like a playground. But these King Arthur Round Swing Tables, designed by Duffy London, could change that. The eight and 12-person tables are equipped with swinging chairs suspended from a steel canopy, which is perfect if your “inner child” has $ 16,000 to spare.

Rare, Obscure and Framed: Re-Issue Posters

Mass-produced prints add as much to a space as a tiny sprig of parsley atop an entree—sure it adds some color, but it’s far from memorable or meaningful. Ditch the cookie-cutter dorm room pop-art prints in favor of something truly unique from Re……

Box office attendance hits lowest level in 19 years

Americans bought 1.26 billion movie tickets in 2014, according to preliminary estimates published by The Hollywood Reporter. It sounds like a big number, but for the film industry, it’s frighteningly low — a five percent decline since last year, and the largest year-over-year drop in nearly a decade. Most importantly, it’s the lowest attendance figure since 1995, suggesting dire news for a film industry still struggling with digital piracy.

Facebook will reportedly challenge Google and Microsoft in the office

Facebook wants to become your office’s social network. The company is said to be working on an official launch of Facebook at Work, an app that Facebook’s employees currently use internally for collaboration and chat. The way the Financial Times describes it, Facebook at Work sounds like it meshes features from Google Docs and Microsoft Office. And yes, Facebook has witnessed and likely paid close attention to Slack’s meteoric rise in the corporate world. But Facebook at Home reportedly isn’t a knee-jerk reaction like Slingshot; this isn’t some cobbled together clone app. The New York Times‘ Mike Isaac reports that Facebook has been working on and refining its office-focused platform for years.
