    Hure Crank Table Brings Industrial Elegance To The Dining Room

  • Idol Chair Is The Adult-Sized Kiddie Fort Your Inner Child Always Wanted

    Idol Chair Is The Adult-Sized Kiddie Fort Your Inner Child Always Wanted

    Need a space in the house to call your own?  Well, it can’t be the bedroom, since you share that with the wife.  It can’t be the living room, since your kids spend more time there, playing video games, than you do.  It can’t be the garage because it’s stacked full of all your wife’s things and your children’s old toys.  And, no, there’s no extra room in the house to convert into a man cave.  What to do?   Do [...]

    This Indoor Stoop Combines Seat, Storage, And Step Ladder Functions In A Single Piece

    A ladder is hardly the most decorative thing to have around.  Yet, when done right, it could very well serve as a terrific accent.  Such is the case with the Indoor Stoop, a three-level partial staircase that’s more than just for climbing the topmost shelf on a bookcase. Designed to offer both functional seating and storage on top of helping you stay off the floor when a rat is running loose inside the apartment, it’s quite the versatile piece.  Not [...]

    This Guy Turned His Retired Power Mac G5s Into Functional Home Furniture

    There have been a lot of awesome computer cases that came out over the years, from PC boxes that look like kitchen appliances to animal-shaped cases to entire desks that serve as a computer chassis.  When it comes to your run-of-the-mill desktop tower for business, few can claim they looked better than the body on the Apple Power Mac G5.  Simply put, it was a big fan favorite.  Apparently, Klaus Geiger loved them so much that when it came time [...]

    Stumble Upon Sofa Is A Carpet That’s A Couch That Also Happens To Be A Bookcase

    Remmus Lounger Automatically Spins To Ensure Maximum Sunlight For Sun Bathing

    We’re not entirely sure about the importance of the sun’s angle when it comes to getting a good tan.  People seem to do well enough just lying on a lounge chair and letting the clear skies do all the work.  But if you feel that directly facing the sun is your best bet to getting an optimal tan, then the Remmus Lounger is exactly the sunbathing companion you’ve been missing. A rotating outdoor lounge chair, it’s designed to follow the [...]

    TJ Volonis Makes Copper Tubing Furniture That Aren’t Just Functional, They Look Amazing, Too

    Using copper tubing to build furniture may sound like a bad idea from both a functional and an aesthetic perspective.  Seeing what TJ Volonis did with this collection of Copper Furniture, however, definitely proves otherwise. Consisting of tables, chairs, benches, and shelves, every piece in the collection uses creatively-arranged copper tubing for the frame, turning out contemporary furniture items that look very much like intricate metal sculptures.   Seriously, these look as fit for a gallery as they would inside a [...]

    Orwell Combines Sofa, Bed, And Your Very Own Private Fort

  • Kahiko Table: Yes, This Is What A $100,000 Table Looks Like

    Kahiko Table: Yes, This Is What A $100,000 Table Looks Like

    Yes, a $100,000 price tag for a table is absolutely preposterous.  But the Kahiko Table is made from materials that are just as absolutely preposterous, so every cent of that asking price is probably well deserved. The base?  It’s made from a composite of engineered wood and carbon fiber, with a unique geometric shape that looks like it will be right at home as part of a sculpture as it will be in your mansion’s dining room.  The centerpiece, though, [...]

  • Camou Is The Cowboy Chair The Wild West Missed Out On

    Camou Is The Cowboy Chair The Wild West Missed Out On

    Modern cowboys don’t spend all their days on a horse in the field anymore.  They actually come inside the house, sit on a desk, and post pictures of the calf they corralled this morning on Facebook, too.  At least, that’s what I imagine they do (I actually have no idea).  But the Camou should definitely be the chair they sit on while doing all that. Designed by Christian Sjöström, it’s a chair that’s shaped like a saddle on a horse.  [...]

    The Pikaplant One Shelf Will Water Your Plants All On Its Own

    We’ve seen many planters that come with integrated watering systems.  If you plan on keeping multiple potted plants around the house, though, it might be a better idea to get the Pikaplant One, a standing shelf that comes with its own automated watering facility. Described as “a low-maintenance vertical garden,” it waters the plants autonomously, using an ebb-and-flow process that allows it to work without requiring any electricity.  All you need to do is fill up the transparent water tank [...]

    3Moods Is An Incredible Transforming Furniture

    Transforming furniture is nothing new.  We’ve seen baby furniture that goes from cradle to crib to play table, as well as a bed that turns into a study table, among a host of others.  The 3Moods, however, does them all one better by turning into nearly every furniture you will need inside a small apartment. Spanish designer Humberto Navarro isn’t playing around.  This thing can be equipped into two kinds of sofa (one for four people, another for two), a bed, [...]

    Cut & Fold Origami Chair Is The Most Stylish Folding Chair Ever

    Folding chairs always tend to look a little bit on the ugly side, which is why they tend to stay in backyards and basements, rather than more prominent areas of the house.  Not the case, though, with this Cut & Fold Origami Chair, a stylish modern lounger that can be easily folded for easy transport and storage. Created by blackLAB architects Andrea Kordos and Tony Round, the lounge chair uses multiple pieces of wood that are attached to each other [...]

    Supersize Bed: Is That Giant French Fries On My Headboard Or Is This All A Dream?

    I know, French fries are horrible.  They pack a ridiculous amount of calories, yet you need so much to get full, all while being desert-level barren when it comes to nutrition.  But you know what?  They taste so good.  And you know what else?  They make for an incredibly fun-looking bed, too.  Seriously, just look at this Supersize Bed. A collaboration between Cecilia Carey and Harry Par, it’s a bed frame with a headboard styled to look like a giant [...]

    How Does Stacking Layers Of Glass And Wood End Up Turning Into This Gorgeous Abyss Table?

    At first glance, the Abyss Table looks like a fancy aquarium coffee table.  Like someone took a large rock and turned it into a tank where fish can swim around.  But it isn’t.  In fact, there’s not even any water on the darn thing. And there aren’t any rocks either. Instead, it employs a carefully-layered series of wood and glass that creates an illusory effect of a body of water entrenched on a large boulder’s body.  It’s a mesmerizing sight, [...]

    These Tables From Greg Klassen’s River Collection Look Like Intricate Topographic Maps

    We don’t know whether to classify the tables from Greg Klassen’s River Collection as furniture or sculptures.  On the one hand, they’re functional tables you can use for a variety of functions around the house.  On the other, they’re so beautifully crafted that your heart will probably break if you spill spaghetti sauce all over it or accidentally scratch the glass portion while moving the home theater equipment you set up on the tabletop.  Ouch. The idea is simple: Greg [...]

    Consolatio Car Bed: Finally A Car-Themed Bed For The Master Bedroom

    Beds that look like cool race cars have been a popular furniture choice for a lot of little boys’ bedrooms.  A bed like that on a grown man’s bedroom, however, will likely drive away girls faster than a bring-your-own-computer Quake Convention.  Despite that, we have a feeling the Consolatio Car Bed can transcend such typical results. Why?  Because it doesn’t look like your typical car bed.  There are no bright colors, large graphics, or a bed frame that looks like [...]

Designed by Emanuele Magine for Campeggi, it’s, basically, a basketball version of the Lazy Football Chair the same partnership created a couple years ago.  Instead of a net, however, it gets what looks to be a regulation-size basketball [...]
