    This is the $185,000 Onyx Sofa from Peugeot. It measures 3-meters (~10-feet) long, 800-pounds, and is made from a chunk of volcanic rock and carbon fiber. It does not look like the sort of sofa I'd want to throw myself down on. Or make love on. Make love TO? Maybe. Regar... / Continue →

    This is the Flying Carpet Coffee Table from Duffy London (of this swingset dining table fame). It costs £1,495 (~$2,460, spit-takes blood) and has a base that looks like the carpet's shadow to give it that hovering appearance. Just to be clear though, it doesn't actually hov... / Continue →

    This is a giant cat shaped sofa. It doesn't have arms or a back like a traditional sofa though, so it's really more of a giant cat pillow. Whatever you want to call it, I'd sleep on it. "What if I call it a Cozy Kitty?" I'd sleep on a Cozy Kitty! "What about a Cat Napper?"... / Continue →

    PROTIP: Never buy a vagina couch pre-owned. This is the custom made $20,000 vagina couch somebody is selling on Craigslist in Troy, Michigan. They didn't come right out and call it a vagina couch though, but that's because they didn't have to. Just look at it. "Definitely v... / Continue →

    This is the Quarts Armchair (really? Then where the f*** are the arms?) designed by CTRL ZAK and Davide Barzaghi. It costs $14,000 and resembles the Aggro Crag from Nickelodeon's 'Guts'. No? Well what about Superman's Fortress of Solitude? MOVING ON. Each boulder fits int... / Continue →

    This is a series of miniature furniture pieces made out of fake human skin by artist Jessica Harrison. Why? No clue, but the loveseat looks like it was made from the skin around an @$$hole. A buttloveseat. I would totally curl up and nap on that. Hit the jump for three mor... / Continue →

    This is a table covered with a thermochromic finish from Jay Watson Design that, when heated by sitting at it, reveals the wood grain underneath. It's like a Hypercolor shirt for those of you who are old enough to know what a Hypercolor shirt is. For those of you who don't kn... / Continue →

    This is the $2,060 Eastpak Sofa. It's a little sofa made out of backpack fabric that has a bunch of pockets for all your stuff. Like so many other things, I half want it and half think it's stupidest thing ever made. I would like it more if all the compartments were detachab... / Continue →

    These are some classic Donkey Kong inspired wall shelves designed by Igor Chak (of Space Invaders couch fame). They're just conceptual though, but if you're handy I imagine you could build them yourself. If you're not handy I imagine you could cut all your fingers off. Ooooo... / Continue →

    This is the Cat Tunnel Couch from Korean designer Seungji Mun. It has an attached habitrail passage for your cats to play in. Unfortunately, it looks like you can't take the tube all the way apart, so if a cat decides to puke in the right elbow you may just have to deal with ... / Continue →

    I wasn't allowed to watch Inception (NOT Conception, which is how you were accidentally made) because my mom said it would be far too complicated for me to understand and might make me unstable, but I did like the previews they showed on TV. I'm also into skin-care commercials... / Continue →
