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

    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 [...]

  • Lazy Basketball Chair: Your Living Room Is Now A Basketball Court

    Lazy Basketball Chair: Your Living Room Is Now A Basketball Court

    Sure, you can hang a couple of Nerf Hoops on the wall to bring a little shootout action to your home.  We doubt they’d look anywhere as impressive as the freestanding rings you can set up using these Lazy Basketball Chairs, though. 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 [...]

    Modos Uses Aluminum Connectors For Quick And Tool-Free Furniture Construction

    We’re big fans of products like the Floyd Legs, which lets you turn any slab of wood into a functional table. The Modos is a similar system that uses a series of connectors to turn erstwhile ordinary wooden boards into a variety of home furniture pieces. Described as a “modular furniture system,” it doesn’t require specially-cut wood that slot into each other like giant LEGOs, the way other modular home furniture systems do. Instead, the connectors allow regular plywood boards to [...]
