Last year, Swiss Air has unveiled their new suites for first class passengers. Not that I am jealous or anything, but I don't think these built-in full beds look very comfy.

The story continues much the same on the ground. If you are  holder of an all-inclusive rail pass in first class, you now have the dreadful choice to hang out in a VIP lounge with free beverages and newspapers.

... and by foot (sorry, no automobiles) - City Lounge St. Gallen (link)
As part of an international design competition to bring life back to the financial district, the city of St. Gallen installed a permanent red carpet. Pedestrians may hang out in chaises and lounge seats, all made of a special rubber material. How cool is that? If you are really digging this, click here for a 360 degree view of the City Lounge.
