Boeing's Online Store Has Amazing Furniture Made From Classic Plane Parts

I had no idea Boeing had an online store. Alright, it probably has some portal for airlines for sorting big ticket purchases (you know, planes), but for the more well-off consumer, it’s easily the coolest furniture retailer in existence. Don’t believe me? Let’s examine the catalogue.


Self-Driving Chairs Make It So Much Easier To Wait In Line

Leveraging the same auto-follow ProPILOT technology that allows its vehicles to autonomously navigate traffic, Nissan has created a bunch of self-driving chairs that promise to make it a lot easier the next time you’re forced to wait in line.


The Best And Worst Stuff In The New IKEA Catalogue

In the last few years, IKEA has shrugged off its false perception of a purveyor of cheap furniture and started selling some truly stunning stuff. For 2017, the Swedish flatpack furniture maker mixes classic and modern designs. But for every good-looking piece, there’s a terrible one that some poor college student is going to get tricked into buying.


Coffee Table Showing Boba Fett's Death Really Ties A Room Together

Tom Spina Designs is back with another custom Star Wars-inspired coffee table. The studio’s previous efforts recreated The Empire Strikes Back’s Wampa Ice Cave, but its latest creation is a little more gruesome, putting The Return of the Jedi’s Sarlacc Pit in your living room — complete with a barely alive Boba Fett trying to crawl out.


No One Is Going To Use This VW Kombi Bed For Sleeping

Lots of kids dream about drifting off to sleep in a racecar bed every night, but as you get older, privacy and relaxation are much higher priorities. It doesn’t mean you have to eventually switch to a boring four-poster, though — not when a Portugal-based company called Circu makes a bed that lets you sleep in a kombi every night.

Designer Stelios Mousarris claims that his new Rocket Coffee Table was inspired by childhood memories of watching Saturday morning cartoons and playing with action figures. But perhaps repressed memories of the Cold War, and the threat of nuclear war, also played a part in its creation.


Yes, Your Living Room Absolutely Needs This Wampa Ice Cave Coffee Table

Tom Spina Designs has a long history of making custom furniture that doesn’t exactly try to hide its pop culture influences. So it’s nice to see the subtle design the studio has put into this The Empire Strikes Back coffee table that doesn’t overtly look like it was inspired by the home of a giant Yeti-like snow creature indigenous to Hoth.


Someone Built A Real-Life Mechanical Version Of Pong Complete With A Square Ball

Video: A real-life version of Pong would actually be just a ping-pong table, since that’s what the classic video game was based on. But a bunch of clever hackers in Uruguay have succeeded in making a real-life version of the video game that’s still played using a pair of rectangular paddles and a square ball bouncing back and forth.


Furniture That Flattens Into Wall Art Is Perfect For Cramped Apartments

Just because you live in a cramped downtown apartment doesn’t mean you don’t want to entertain. So here’s a brilliant way to keep some extra seating around, without wasting precious floor space once all your guests have left.


The Only Sounds Coming From This Minimoog Sofa Will Be Snores

Originally released way back in 1970, the unique sound of the Minimoog analogue synthesiser means the hardware is still in demand today. But since Moog stopped producing the synths back in 1981, they’re incredibly rare and expensive now — unless you’re happy to add this sofa equivalent to your studio.
