This Raccoon Mario rug and matching Question Mark block Ottoman are the ultimate in retro gamer living room accessories.

Handcrafted by Mindy Y. (aka “enemyairship”), the 7-foot square, 8-bit Racoon Mario rug is made from 386 individual “granny square” pixels. It took Mindy about 120 hours to put the whole thing together, and she even ended up using a color-coded Microsoft Excel spreadsheet to plan out the design. How geeky indeed!

Mindy also created the accompanying Question Mark Block ottoman, a 15-inch cube stitched from vinyl fabric, yet not stocked with any coins, or 1-up mushrooms. What’s the deal? When I put my feet up on this thing, I expect some power-ups dammit!

If you’re interested in having your own custom video game decor, Mindy does take commission orders for pretty much anything on her Flickr page. You can head over to her Etsy shop and drop her a note if you’ve got something you’re looking for. Me? I desperately need a Duck Hunt dog bed.
