As we wrap up 2009, I thought it would be fun to end with a smile. Here are some outrageous, goofy, oddball, outright weird furniture and design things I’ve come across on the web in the last month or two. I’ve been saving them just for this! So scroll through quickly or take your time and really be amazed at the way some people’s minds work……here we go:
Rose chair (via funnybytes.net)
Animal or horn chair (via moggit.com)
Made with CD's - where's the comfort? (via moggit.com)
Laroche chair by Milla Rezanova
What era is this from? A little too much of a good thing.. (via manolohome.com)
Be careful not to impale yourself on this funky chair! (via geekologie)
Duct tape users unite! You too can have this designer look....no estimate of number of rolls of tape was given.
A bench made of pencils ... guess they decided the eraser end is the comfy end. (via moggit.com)
This "murder" chair complete with movable pool of blood is...well, playful in a grim sort of way. (via freshome)
This tub might look cool, but how in the heck do you get in and out? And the water wouldn't be able to get very deep for soaking. And no shower curtain? hmmm (via furniturefashion.com)
A toilet covered in Swarvoski crystals available for a mere $75,000 (via cubeme.com)
A chandelier made of plastic bic pens and safety pins - a true DIY project. (via weburbanist.com)
A new way to donate clothing - bind it and make a chair. (via nerdapproved.com)
Can't get enough of the golf course? Bring it home and lounge about... (via furniturefashion.com)
Lamps at their most basic: a hunk of wood and a bulb. (via moggit.com)
If you've made it this far, this one is actually kinda cool - a recycled bicycle wheel as a clock (little hard to tell time, but not impossible). (via materialicious.com)
Bedrooms are supposed to be restful, cozy, & inviting but I'm afraid the 'art' in this one would just make me feel creepy. (via freshome.com)
