Furniture doesn’t get any simpler than this.
These pieces of refoldable cardboard furniture are produced by Chairigami, which was founded by Zach Rotholz using nothing but $5,000 of his bar mitzvah money as capital.
As a kid, I’d always see my grandma rocking one of her grandkids to sleep in her lap on her rocking chair. (Yes, I was one of those grandkids, although obviously I wouldn’t be able to see myself if I’m the one being rocked.)
There are plenty of audio systems available for your home, but not all of them look as beautiful as this console from Ruark Audio. It’s got lots of retro appeal, and will look awesome in a number of different decors.
My dad’s car broke down on a mountain road when we were on our way to the family vacation house. Suffice it to say, my sisters and I spent a few hours sitting on rock-hard boulders while he tinkered with the engine.
I just recently had a custom arcade cabinet built for my basement. And while it’s totally awesome, mine has a classic arcade style to it. Had I known that having one built to look like an old Soviet MiG fighter jet was an option, though, I might have at least considered it.
There’s a perpetual shortage of space in every home. That’s why multi-functional furniture pieces like the table that Daniel Liss designed have a huge inherent demand – because they let you do more and take on more functions in a singular piece.
The Massaud Canopy isn’t the first piece of furniture that was created for individuals who wanted the option to hide away from the outside world at will. Remember the Abri-Boca Living Pod?
While the pod is more for home use, you can set up the Massaud Canopy is a variety of location, like your room or den and even your office.
The crews of most TV shows use regular tables to have conferences and go over their work, which is fine because most shows are pretty crap. But that will never do for a quality program like Game of Thrones.
Many people believe that standing is better than sitting, especially for those who have desk jobs or work long hours on their computers. Standing for hours on end in front of a standing desk isn’t the most comfortable thing to do, but it could give you the added benefits promised for those who stand up more.
Would you like to sit on top of a bunch of thick and jagged poles? Normally I wouldn’t, but if I knew it was furniture made by Annie Evelyn, then I probably would.
You see, Annie is a master of disguise when it comes to her creations.
Vancouver artist Colin Johnson made a unique piece of furniture shaped like the AT-AT from The Empire Strikes Back. He calls it the Emperor’s Cabinet. You wouldn’t want to take down this Imperial Walker, but you would want to open it up.
Aside from its functional uses, mirrors come in pretty handy when you’re trying to achieve some cool optical illusions. A good example of this is the classic infinite effect. It looks like a pretty complicated effect, but it’s easily achievable and only requires a mirror, glass, and a light source.
You can be a romantic by wanting to lay yourself down on a bed of roses, but I’d rather be comfortable and lie down on a bed of foam balls instead. Not just regular foam balls because they’ll clearly roll all over the place, leaving you to lie on nothing but the hard floor.
The hidden-room-behind-the-bookshelf thing has become sort of a cliché because of how it’s always being used and featured in cartoons and movies. If you’ve always wanted one in your home but don’t have the time to draw up plans and work on its construction, then here’s some good news for you: you can now buy one.
What good is a portrait of a chair when your legs are weary and are in need of rest? Tons of good, apparently, if it happens to be one of the portraits by YOY. That’s because aside from being a striking piece of art, each painted seat doubles as an actual piece of furniture.
Assembling that new cabinet or entertainment center can be a real pain in the butt. Mostly because you need an extra pair of arms. It helps if you are an octopus. If you are tired of assembling IKEA furniture, researchers have created a new robot to help.
