The furniture designs of Tembolat Gugkaev are quite cool, but they were an absolute bitch to find… I love the above illuminated shelling unit, it’s both beautiful and relatively practical. The Library Chair below looks awesome too, but I’m not sure I’d have anywhere to put it.
I think I’d also feel a little like Dumont from Tron with all that chair behind me…
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…

This entertainment unit created by Igor Chak is styled after the level design from Donkey Kong.
So one day I was walking around the outskirts of the vintage digital game world “which I sometimes do, please don’t look at me weird”, I came across an old scenario that has been embedded in my childhood memory…The colorful steel beams of Donkey Kong and I started to wonder, what happens to all those video game props when games become old….do they get stored away in a digital world or do they fade away with time? The famous steel beams from Donkey Kong have served their time but I could not pass by such an ingenious design…. So as a designer I though how can I encourage Mario to take this back. I’m sure with popularity of Mario he is not a simple plumber anymore and he wouldn’t want some rusty beat up steel beams at his place but he would probably need some kind of sweet looking wall to put his awards and trophies on.
So here is a Donkey Kong wall, strong, good looking but still has its character. The wall is made out of individual sections; each section is made out of durable but light carbon fiber, anodized aluminum pixels that are joined with strong stainless steel rods and toughened glass tops. The special mounts themselves are made out of steel and can support up to 60lbs
So Mario….sit your Lady friend on that nice looking couch you have and enjoy the show!
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.
We are looking into putting a new book case in our spare bedroom… Maybe I can convince Avarinne to get this…
