    Authentic F-4 Ejection Seats Fashioned Into Office Chairs

    Want to type your excel sheets at work all while feeling like you’re sitting at the helm of a warplane? Beg your boss to get you the F-4 Ejection Seat from MotoArt, which turns an authentic pilot’s chair on Vietnam-era F4 fighter jets into wheel-toting office buckets. Despite brandishing “Ejection Seat” on its name, the metal-clad office furnishing can’t actually lift off. In fact, judging from how heavy all that steel looks, I doubt you can even pick it up […]

  • Super Dream Cabinet: Luxury Storage Doubles As Your Future Coffin

    Super Dream Cabinet: Luxury Storage Doubles As Your Future Coffin

    If you’re in Japan, as it turns out, you can have your luxury cabinet and die in it too. At least, that’s what you’ll get if your buy the Super Dream Cabinet, a large decorated chest that’s supposed to be well-suited for burying dead people in too. While Japan admittedly has weird tastes, this one is likely a marketing stunt from a coffin-maker who has a little too much inventory of expensive units. I mean, if I thought there was […]

  • Coffin Couch: Because A Coffin Is Too Small To Be A Functional Bed

    Coffin Couch: Because A Coffin Is Too Small To Be A Functional Bed

    Ever wanted a coffin as a home fixture but couldn’t find a way to make it useful?  While movie vampires have always employed one as a bed, it’s too cramped to warrant use by daywalking undeads like you and me.  Etsy seller VonErickson came up with a creative solution: deck the thing as a couch instead. The Coffin Couch, as the furniture is called, allows you to indulge your vampire fascinations, all while remaining a functional piece for your living […]

    The Man Wall: A Testerone-Fueled Entertainment Center

  • Bar Desk: Your Workstation As A Home Bar

    Bar Desk: Your Workstation As A Home Bar

    I’ve seen plenty of work desks that manage to hide an awful-looking tower PC.  I think we’ve lived with large PC rigs long enough to have evolved a suitable solution for the eyesore they cause.  However, I doubt I’ve seen anything as metropolitan and refined as this Bar-Style Desk, which is exactly how a 1960s space-age bachelor pad workstation would have looked like if they had computers back in the day. Supposedly built from IKEA components, this bar desk not […]

    Reclaimed scrap furniture seldom really looks all that appetizing.  After all, products designed with conservation and recycling in mind are typically geared towards utility, instead of style.  Nine Stories Furniture, on the other hand, revel in it – specifically picking out dead iron ravaged by the elements across salvage yards for their limited edition Elsie Series tables.

    Boxes, closets and shelves – that’s where I keep most of the accessories I’ve accumulated over the years.  You’ve probably got your own system as well.  D-Torso’s Hito Model Monica seems like an infinitely more stylish solution to storing all sorts of items, though, and makes brilliant use of space while doing it.

    Deadly Multi-Purpose Closet: Storage Magic

    If you watch stage magic, you’ve probably seen the age-old trick of sticking knives into a closet while an assistant (usually a pretty lady, another magician or a pretend audience member) stood inside it.  It fascinated me to no end when I was a kid and continues to be fun today when coupled with an exciting performance. While I usually took home laughs and giggles after watching such a show, Rafael Morgan allowed it to inspire a very clever closet […]

  • F1-Inspired Formula Chair Gets You Racing Comforts Without The Bulk

    F1-Inspired Formula Chair Gets You Racing Comforts Without The Bulk

    Most any merchandise tied with F1 Racing typically looks busy or complicated.  Even something as simple as a jacket usually gets decked with a ton of innovative design cues and loaded with a never-ending supply of little details.  Don’t even get me started on home fixtures – carbon fiber and spare parts, anyone? The Formula.Chair spares us from all the elaborate intricacies and dons an F1-inspired chair that’s as simple as can be.  It’s so unembellished, in fact, that you […]

    What do you do with the spare parts of an F1 racer that has seen its best days?  Throw it into a scrap heap?  Display it on your garage?  How about make a little cash from it? Ferrari has long sold parts used in races as collector’s items, although they’ve cut down on it recently due to espionage problems.    They seem to be making an exception for the 7-speed gearbox from the Scuderia Ferrari F2000 F1 racecar, though, which the […]

    All cigar-puffing honchos deserve a coffee table that righteously proclaims their nasty habits with shameless conviction.  Now they can, with the Habana Coffee Table. Crafted by furniture designer Pavel Perina, the slab was put together using recycled cigar boxes, each with their labels still in tow.   Some of the boxes, especially those along the edges, were kept functional with their hinges still intact.  That means you can actually use them to house your cigars, condoms, coffee supplies or whatever else […]

    Duffy London Shadow Chair Defies Gravity

    I’ve seen folks try and implement floating chairs before, but never one that was this clever.  Called the Shadow Chair, the Duffy London creation is a seat that looks like it stands on two front legs with nothing else but air holding the rest of it. How did they pull it off?  Most people think it’s hoisted up a wall, yet the Shadow Chair can stand pushed back in the corner just as well as in the center of the […]

    Easy Reader: Integrated Bench And Bookshelf On Wheels

    Some design solutions are brilliant.  Others are just odd.  The Easy Reader is a quirky mobile bench with an integrated bookshelf, intended to make an easier time of hauling your library around the house. Designed for comfortable book reading, the Easy Reader features a wooden bench with a backrest on one end, complete with red felt cushions.  The bench is only 50 cm wide, so I’m not sure how agreeable the much larger-bodied among us will be with the seating.  […]

    The Stake Chair: Scariest Stool Ever

    When talking about horrendous furniture, most people usually refer to ugly pieces that few can bear to hold their gazes upon. The Stake Chair, on the other hand, not only makes you cringe when you look at it, it leaves you with a nagging fear every time to sit your ass down. Designed by Russian designer Ton Guglya, it looks like a torture device of genius proportions. It stands on four legs, arranged much like a regular barstool. The seating […]

  • Amazing Modern Furniture

    Amazing Modern Furniture

    Remember when furniture pretty much all looked the same?  Sofas, armchairs, tables…sure, you could get different colors and some different designs, but when it came down to it, a sofa was a sofa.  However, in the world of modern furniture, this is certainly not true.  There are some amazingly designed pieces out there today, some of which are almost more like artwork than furniture.  Of course, some of these are just as uncomfortable to sit in as those old, hardwood […]

    Play Tetris with Your Furniture

    Some people claim they play Tetris with their furniture all the time—they move it around, put different chairs in different places, and generally try to get as much of it to fit into a room as possible.  While that kind of Tetris can be annoying, playing Tetris with the awesome Tetris furniture designed by Diego Silverio and Helder Filipoy of Brazil is much more fun.  Their stacking Tetris-inspired furniture is great for any room where you need a lot of […]
