    These Awesome Looking Armchairs And Couches Are Made From Steel Drums

    It’s tough imagining industrial steel barrel drums being re-purposed into snazzy-looking home furniture.  Yet, that’s exactly what DrumWorks Furniture manages to accomplish with their existing collection. Based in Randolph County, North Carolina, the company, literally, converts used steel drums into functional and stylish home furnishing.  Each one is sourced from an independent supplier that recycles steel drums for various industrial uses.  Granted, some of the pieces look like they’ll fit in better with bachelor pads, man caves, and garages like [...]

  • Check Out Your Beach-Ready Bod On This Surfboard Storage Mirror

    Check Out Your Beach-Ready Bod On This Surfboard Storage Mirror

    The Surfboard Storage Mirror is like any full-body mirror where you can check out all the muscles you’ve gained from the last two years you’ve spent doing Crossbell exercises. Except it’s also the perfect mirror to celebrate the summer, sporting a surfboard shape that will make you think twice about taking it down to the beach and trying to catch a wave before realizing too late that it’s such a horrible idea. Yes, trying to use this to surf will be an [...]

  • Use The CLM 2 Floating Shelf To Make 20-Pound Objects Fly

    Use The CLM 2 Floating Shelf To Make 20-Pound Objects Fly

    The CLM 2 is a levitating display shelf that lets you make objects of all sorts look like they’re floating a few inches up in the air. It’s awesome. Simply set an item down on top of the floating disc and, boom, it’s immediately got that David Blaine magic going on. Made by Crealev, this is, basically, the exact same tech that the company employs to make objects levitate in museums and product booths (and, we’re guessing, the same tech [...]

  • These Bulbing 2D Lamps Create The Illusion Of 3D Forms

    These Bulbing 2D Lamps Create The Illusion Of 3D Forms

    These Bulbing lamps probably won’t light up your bedroom any better than the Philips Wake-Up Light you use right now. But we bet these will spur a more engaging conversation with any girl you show around the house, increasing the chances they’ll decide to stick around the bedroom just a little longer than usual. And while we’re not counting on it, who knows, it just might be your lucky day. Made by Tel Aviv-based Studio Cheha, the lamps are designed as two-dimensional [...]

  • Jellio Candelier Lights Up Your Home Using 15,000 Gummi Bears

    Jellio Candelier Lights Up Your Home Using 15,000 Gummi Bears

    Chandeliers are, typically, ornate-lighting fixtures reserved for large, elegantly-styled homes. While you can always hang one up in the ceiling of your bachelor pad (aka the geeky headquarters), we doubt a tiered crystal chandelier is going to go well with your Retro Invader Couch, Severed Horse Head Throw Pillow, and Star Trek Fine Art Prints. At least, that used to be the case until someone created the Jellio Candelier. Like other chandeliers, this one is large, ornate, and extremely complex. Unlike them, it [...]

  • Code Mode Light Is A “Do Not Disturb” Sign For Programmers

    Code Mode Light Is A “Do Not Disturb” Sign For Programmers

    Sure, you can hang a “Do Not Disturb” sign when you’re in the zone, but we doubt it will stop the self-important and inconsiderate clowns in the office from disturbing you when they feel the need to assert their ego into your space. The Code Mode Light won’t keep them from infringing on your flow either, but at least it looks way cooler than an old-school signboard. Hey, that counts for something. A light-up wall-mounted sign for programmers, it lets [...]

  • Fotobit Lets You Easily Build Sweet Looking Wall Mounted Photo Mosaics

    Fotobit Lets You Easily Build Sweet Looking Wall Mounted Photo Mosaics

    There’s no shortage of framing options for mounting photographs and prints up a wall.  So much so that you really have to question whether we need another.  Despite that, we can’t help but be fans of Fotobit’s expandable frame system. Sized to hold a 4 x 4 print, it makes an ideal frame for showcasing printouts of your favorite Instagram photos.  Of course, hanging a sole 4 x 4 print up an empty wall doesn’t sound like a great way [...]

  • Lucid Mirror Adds A Moving Cloudscape To Your Reflection

    Lucid Mirror Adds A Moving Cloudscape To Your Reflection

    The Lucid Mirror works like any other wall-mounted mirror, helping you see a clear reflection whenever you fix your hair, manscape your goatee, or pop your zits.   Once you activate the hidden switch, however, things take a turn for the interesting, showing a moving cloudscape scene that serves as a backdrop to any image that is reflected across the mirrored surface. Designed by Adam Frank, the moving clouds and sunbeams turn the otherwise regular mirror into a decorative wall item, [...]

    Soundwall Is A Large Speaker Guised As Wall Art

    Sure, there are plenty of options in gorgeous-looking home speakers, especially when you get to the higher-end of audio gear.   But it’s still going to be quite the chore trying to find something that can go with your existing home design.  The Soundwall eliminates the need for that by integrating all the audio hardware with the art that’s mounted up your wall. From the outside, it looks like a regular art print housed inside a picture frame with speakers hidden [...]

    SnapRays Guidelight: This Smart Outlet Cover Comes With Built-In Automated LEDs

    Nightlights are incredibly handy in the dark, letting you make your way around the house at 3 AM even with all the lights out.  Provided you remember to turn on the nightlights before you hit the bed, that is.  The SnapRays Guidelight offers a better solution. A straight replacement to the electric outlet cover plate, it comes with built-in LEDs at the bottom that automatically switch on and off depending on the current lighting condition in the room.  No need [...]

    Game Frame: Liven Up Your Desk With Pixel Art Decor

    A week ago, you had a framed picture of your girlfriend sitting on your workdesk.  Any time you felt bored at work, you would glance at it and be inspired.  Yeah, you were a smitten fool.  The same frame now sits wrecked in the trash after she dumped you last Wednesday night over SMS.  Ouch.  You need something new to sit on your desk and make you smile when the turmoil of work just gets too much, preferably one that [...]

    One of the most unique TV accessories we’ve seen in a while, the Lightpack adds ambient backlighting to TVs and monitors, illuminating the wall behind the panel and the space around it.  The best part?  It displays the same colors that appear on the screen, making it look like the show is literally exploding out of the TV, essentially expanding your viewing range. Not only will it turn watching movies and TV shows into an entirely new experience, the unique [...]

  • Baux Träullit Acoustic Panels Soundproof Your Room In Style

    Baux Träullit Acoustic Panels Soundproof Your Room In Style

    Acoustic tiles that let you soundproof a room aren’t anything new. Designed for utilitarian purposes, however, they hardly make for the nicest things to adorn the walls in your home. Such is not the case for the Träullit, a set of modular acoustic panels that double as decorative wall items. Created by Swedish outfit Baux, the tiles are offered in a variety of shapes, including circles, triangles, squares, rectangles, hexagons, and parralelograms. Each one comes in a selection of colors, [...]

    Sprout Is A Pencil That Turns Into A Plant

    Remember the Pooleaf, those ballpoint pens that look like an indoor plant when bundled together into a cup? Yeah, that was pretty cool. These Sprout Pencils can also turn into a plant, except instead of artificial plastic flora, it can grow into real herbs when buried in soil. A pencil with a seed inside, you can use it like any regular pencil for writing, sketching, and tapping on the desk any time you get anxious and fidgety. Rather than merely [...]

    Man Cave Décor: F-4 Landing Gear Wall Sculpture

    Apparently, there’s a way to salvage parts of decommissioned military jets, which I didn’t even know was an option in life. And it makes me sad that I didn’t devote my days to that pursuit. So color me jealous that some dude was actually lucky enough to salvage a whole load of landing gear doors from retired military F4 phantom jets, then refurbished them into these F-4 Landing Gear Wall Sculptures that inject a dose of aviation-inspired aesthetics into your [...]

    Pillows come in all shapes, sizes and designs. Like literally, we’ve seen boombox pillows, nunchuck pillows and even booty pillows among a whole host of them. If the massive selection already out there doesn’t float your boat however, you may want to place an order with In the Seam’s Printed City Sights, a custom pillow service that will turn any picture you send into a soft, fluffy cloth bag you can hug while curling up in bed.

  • Invisiplug Deluxe Adds USB Ports To Hardwood-Style Power Strips

    Invisiplug Deluxe Adds USB Ports To Hardwood-Style Power Strips

    We loved the original Invisplug power strip, which came with designs that made it really blend in with hardwood floors. These days, though, a power strip just isn’t all that complete without a USB port in tow. The Invisiplug Deluxe brings that modern amenity to its functional yet decorative power strips, so you can finally get rid of that ugly power strip you keep around for its USB-charging powers. Bearing the same three options in wood grain finishes (light natural, [...]

    This Unique Book Rack Hangs Your Books On The Wall

Made by Agustav Design, it’s a novel shelf design where the books are hung on strings rather than set down on a surface.   You can line them up in a file like a regular shelf, have some books face forward for [...]

  • Displate: Steel-Printed Art Posters For Drill-Free Mounting

    Displate: Steel-Printed Art Posters For Drill-Free Mounting

    God invented posters so you can hang art on your apartment without breaking the terms of your lease.  The sucky part?  Unless you’re a kid in school, hanging unframed posters just makes your home look juvenile as heck; but when you start using frames, you’ll need to install mounting hardware and, pretty much, give up your security deposit.  Fortunately, those aren’t the only options with Displate’s full metal prints. Instead of putting the images on stock poster paper, the company [...]

  • Pooleaf Pen Doubles As Decorative Indoor Plant

    Pooleaf Pen Doubles As Decorative Indoor Plant

    Having a small plant in your workspace definitely livens things up, but you need that desk space for all your office supplies and the mass of cheap small toys you collect.  Plus, you’re not really all that interested in caring for a living thing while withering away in your life-sucking job — the concept is just too ironic to process.  These Pooleaf Pens should serve as a much more sensible alternative. Created by Korea’s Zeup Design Studio, they’re erstwhile regular [...]

  • Google Japan’s Colorful Office Interior Pics

    Google Japan’s Colorful Office Interior Pics

    Google’s offices have long been a source of fascination for outsiders, with colorful and imaginative designs that are a downright refreshing break from the normally drab and industrial atmospheres of traditional offices.  The company’s new Google Japan office is no different, incorporating Japan’s lively culture and history into each of the office’s numerous spaces. Designed by Tokyo-based Klein Dytham Architecture, the original design borrowed heavily from traditional Japanese fabric prints and contemporary anime, which, we imagine, is already a large [...]

    Analog Clocktail Puts A Giant Clock Under Your Coffetable

    We keep a special place in our hearts for analog clocks.  Even though we have the time on every piece of household electronics these days (heck, even my electric fan shows the time), having a huge clock somewhere around the house still makes sense somehow.   If you like to keep a small clock on the coffee table, too, why not trade that in for this Analog Clocktail Table. Instead of putting a clock on the table, it puts a clock [...]

    Corkscapes Hand Cut Wall Decals Add Cork Decor To Your Room

    Corkboards are plenty useful.  They are, however, a far cry from being affable to look at, which is why we tend to keep them out of the way, such as inside our office cubicles, on the side of the fridge or some other part of the house where they won’t be very prominent.  Corkscapes offer a way to bring corkboards into more prominent areas of your digs. How?  By turning them out in fancy, decorative shapes that make them every [...]

Made by Pixers, the collection consists of high-quality decals, each one based on a popular film.  Available in a variety of custom sizes from small to huge, the adhesive murals can cover up entire walls in any part of your digs, whether you plaster [...]

    Turning a bottle into the body of a desk lamp probably isn’t the most original idea.  We’re pretty sure we’ve seen it done a few times in the past, especially among folks who like upcycling erstwhile trash items.  The Satechi Touch USB LED Lamp, however, lets you use empty bottles for the same purpose without much work, allowing you to turn any bottle into a lamp body. A lighting unit cut in the likeness of a lamp shade, you simply [...]
