You, my loyal Hooked on Houses readers, send me some pretty interesting stuff, I have to say. Take this, for example. Gary of Seasoned Believers forwarded it to me today with a note that it was from Japan, but that’s all the information he had. If anyone else knows anything about it, please fill me in!
(UPDATE: We found it! Not only that, but a reader informed me that it’s actually from Germany, and it’s called “The Obelisk,” which is why I changed the title of the post to be more accurate. More information below, including the price.)
Wait until you see what this pod cleverly transforms into! (Can you guess?)

Talk about a conversation piece!“What’s that pod-thing in the corner of your living room?” “Oh, that’s where I store my furniture when we’re not sitting on it.”
THIS JUST IN: Hooked on Houses reader JLB found the website this is being sold on: Exclusively Home. Thanks, JLB! I swear I have the best readers in all the blogosphere. You guys are always helping me out.
According to the website, this is called the Rocket Outdoor 5-piece Set and is sold by Nuevo Living. You can choose the color you want and everything. The price? $2,090. Here’s the picture of it on the website:
Reader Montse also wrote in to tell us it’s actually German, by a company called DEDON (www.Dedon.de). They call it the Obelisk, and it’s presented as “Art for the Garden.” There are some pretty cool photos of it on their website if you’re interested.
Well, this turned out to be quite a collaborative post! Thanks to readers Gary, JLB, and Montse for helping me piece together all the facts of this thing. I appreciate all your help!
