This Sofa shaped like a phone box on it’s side by artist Benjamin Shine is being auctioned off at Sotheby’s (Auction Catalog):
Box Lounger brings the iconic Phone Box indoors, transformed into a functional piece of furniture. Designed with button-back red leather upholstery and light-up Telephone signs, Box Lounger packs a patriotic punch in its fusion of British heritage design.

Stefano Grasselli at Coroflot refers to this as a “Couch” I object to that word so I’m going to call it a “Sofa”. It’s a shame it’s not more Tetrissy, it’s almost like the Tetrisness of the Sofa was added as an after thought. It’s probably more comfortable for that though.
I was quite impressed when I saw this Globe shaped Liquor Dispenstor especially as it’s only $40, then I had a look at the other stuff they sell on this website, it’s a world of drinking paraphernalia, if only I drank…
Keeping witht he theme though they also have some magnificent replica Globe shaped bars and drink trolleys, I thought these kind of things only existed in movies:
I saw the above image and was like “Hey cool space invaders chair” then I was like “NES TABLE!!!!!!1111 one one one one”.
This is awesome, I want one, there is an entire gallery of images of the table over on Matt’s Flickr.
The Cartridge slot opens to reveal an extra large fully functional NES controller.
I think he has it wired up with his cable box inside, the controller ports are actually power sockets so he can plug in his laptop and the back opens up so he can reach the back of his cable box and whatever other gizmos he has in there.

This rug (above) and the cushion (below) are from Etsy seller WTCrafts, and I want them both… It’s a shame that the rug isn’t “durable” according to the description as I’d love a NES controller door mat, but it would probably get knicked anyway.
Sadly the above Pantone chair is not in production, it’s was created by Sif Technology to demonstrate their leather printing process. It is a bit busy, but it is also a bit cool…

I like reading in the bathtub as much as the next literate person, but lets be realistic here, you are going to have one leaky bath tub if you make it out of books… I have no source for this image, and I guess if you lined the inside with a clear layer of plastic it could be pretty cool, but I’m going to assume that this is some kind of art project and not a functioning bath tub, which is a shame I really would like a bathtub made out of books…

I admit I could probably make this table by Etsy seller ushanz using some tiles from B&Q and a table from Ikea, but if you don’t have the inclination to it’s nice to know that someone is willing to sell you one for £127 or so. She (I assume it’s a she…) has some other pixelated designs like this Yoshi:
But Also has some other pretty cool custom furniture like this Romance Novel Chair, which is covered in the “Saucy Bits” of romance novels… Interesting…

Apparently the woman in the pic is some AustralianTV presenter called Stephanie ‘Hex’ Bendixen she has a tumblr and everything.
You know how after a certain age whenever anyone suggests you play “Twister” somone makes a lewd remark dripping with innuendo?
The Karmasheetra takes all the subtlety out of the situation…
It’s available in bed sheet form on Amazon.co.uk, but there seem to be 2 entries for it, one at £19.45 and one for £29.98…
