Rock Band Rug Concept

Rock Band Guitar Hero Carpet IKEA

I could probably get a couple of dozen blog posts out of the archives of “Dave’s Geeky Ideas” but this Rock Band Rug Concept is fairly awesome. It’s part of Dave’s If IKEA Made Geeky Furniture series, and shows the fret board of a Rock Band guitar with notes coming down it.

Chocolate Fondue Lamp Shade

This tasty lamp shade was created by designer Alexander Lervik, it’s a chocolate pyramid over an incandescent light bulb. When you turn on the light he chocolate slowly melts and eventually you are left with a puddle of tasty chocolate goo to dip fruit, marshmallows, fingers or other body parts in.

I’m not entirely sure how it keeps the chocolate warm and melted once its in. The bowl, but I’m sure it has a way of doing that.

The Poetry of Light chocolate lamp, unlike other lamps, is completely dark when you first turn it on, mimicking light spreading along the horizon at sunrise. The heat from the lamp causes the chocolate to begin melting, and it takes several minutes for the first rays of light to penetrate. Holes soon form and as the light grows the chocolate melts. The material and structure of the lamp are the result of pure curiosity. Alexander Lervik wanted to explore the possibility of creating a contrast to light, i.e. dark. The shape of the lamp has been devised based on extensive testing involving the melting process.

Snug by Kumeko

The Snug by Kemeko looks incredibly comfortable. It’s essentially a large padded sack for you to sit in, kind of like a walled bean bag, but I really like the concept. I’ve always liked being in snug places when reading or playing games. As a kid I vaguely remember cordoning off the area under my desk with a blanket and taking my torch with me so I could read in the small space.

The Sung costs between 416 and 620 Euros but there is a 35% discount on all orders placed before the end of February 2013!

If I had the money and the space to put one of these I’d probably buy one, but I sadly have neither…

It also works as an arm chair of sorts.

Phone Box Sofa

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.

If only he’d made a TARDIS version…

Tetris Sofa

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.

World Globe Liquor Dispenser + Bonus Globe Bars

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:

 

 

 

 

NES Coffee Table by Matt Cyborgelt

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.

NES Controller Rug and Cushion

NES  Nintendo Controller Rug

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.

Book Tub!

<p>book tub.<br />

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…
