Finally a Way to Hide the Exercise Equipment in Your Living Room
Jump ropes, kettlebells, and foam rollers have slowly been taking over our living rooms. Sure, a yoga mat and some weights are easy to tuck away or move into another room when not in use, but a stationary bike poses a challenge. And for a lot of us who gave up on gym memberships during the pandemic, this equipment is at the core of our space. As much as we’d like to think a Peloton can pass as decor, the bulky black bike can’t just be covered with a nice throw blanket. However, it can be stowed inside of a chic-looking cabinet, thanks to a new brand called Boitier.
The company, which is launching on Kickstarter in late August, designed a mid-century–inspired storage unit that is meant to house a stationary bike, among other gear. The piece, which is compatible with Peloton as well as other popular bikes, is made out of a combination of veneered wood and cherrywood and has a side “drawer” that allows you to slide your bike out on a stable platform.
The furniture measures 30 inches deep and 72 inches tall (it takes up around 9 1/2 feet of floor space when it’s completely extended), so it can squeeze into most types of spaces. Sick of being reminded to work out when you’re watching Netflix? You can preorder the discreet cabinet. There will be a limited number of units, according to the company, with pricing starting at $1,250. Now your living room can become your living room once again.
