Creations of EgliDesign studio bring to the mind pictures of a wonderland – a world of fantasy and magic. The furniture however, is very much grounded in reality; its unique form guided by perspective and imagination of Lithuanian artist/designer Eglė Mie, the founder of the studio.
The giant Birdsnest does not leave much to be desired by way of looks, or the allusions of comfort. Birds would probably have little use for a nest like this, but humans, we’re sure, would enjoy its comforts and novelty. We can’t say we’re in love with the jagged wooden edges, but overall, the design from OGE CreativeGroup is quite lovely.

A box full of money burns to give light and warmth to the table. That is a very interesting concept, if you imagine the sheer amount of money that would take to keep the flames fed. Too much? is a dining table that shows modern design, and a flame at the center. The flame in question is fed by a box that sits beneath the flame, full of currency notes.
Those who share their home with a cat, would likely realize the value that comes with the CATable. The table is full of crannies and passageways for your cat to explore, enjoy, and generally keep busy.
After an eruption of Mount Etna last year, Sicilian duo Simone Farresin and Andrea Trimarchi of Formafantasma decided to experiment with the cooled lava and the shapes it could be molded into. Terming Mount Etna as a “mine without miners – it is excavating itself to expose its raw materials,” the duo collected the cooled lava as solidified dark grey basalt rock.
What good is tilted furniture? We ask. For starters, it looks pretty good, and if you photograph it well enough, it looks even better. Seen here is the “60” series from Georgian design studio XYZ Integrated Architecture. The simple name apparently comes from the angle at which the furniture bends along their vertical axis.
Skulls go exceptionally well with brains, which is the reason I always prefer to keep my brain firmly in the skull. Sometimes it is a little too tight, but mostly, I’m okay. This love affair of skull and brain has taken the next step where they’re together as furniture. Artist/designer Vladi Rapaport has crafted a combo of a skull chair and brain ottoman, both destined to be together just like god intended.
Living in a fairytale and embarking upon adventures is easy when you have access to the flying carpet. Made by Duffy London, the flying carpet is a coffee table made out of mild steel, with a brilliantly designed base that mimics the shadow of the carpet.
