The Millennium Falcon Bed Costs An Arm, Looks Badass


The Star Wars craze continues unabated, and the latest product we’ve stumbled across is this Millennium Falcon bed for kids. It’s being sold by Pottery Barn, and unlike the cheaper stuff at Ikea, is made from actual wood and not particle board. Its multi-layer finish is hand-painted, and the slat-roll foundation is designed for use with or without a box spring. It’s for kids, so if you’re thinking of getting this for yourself, you should know its dimensions: 45.5″ wide x 108.25″ long x 45.5″ high. Regardless of who this is for, this prospective buyer will need to have deep pockets since the thing costs $4,000.

The $24,000 Abyss Table By Duffy London


The nice thing about having money, aside from having money, is that you can look at things like the Abyss Table and think “Hm, that might look nice in my living room.” At least, we assume that people with money might say that, because if we have $24,000 burning a hole in our pockets, we would have ordered this table before even writing about it. As it is, we can only stare at the screen and dream.

Like all of Duffy’s designs, the Abyss Table is a conversation piece as much as a functional one. But while previous works play with gravity, this new design is concerned with depth, and creates a geological cross-section as mesmerising as the sea.
The design team spent a year developing the table in their London studio, experimenting with sculpted glass, Perspex and wood, arranged like a 3-D representation of a geological map, until they re-created something of the mesmeric abyss that had first captured Duffy’s imagination.
Made from high grade wood from Forest Stewardship Council managed forests and other controlled sources. Glass.

There will only be 25 of these tables made, and if you order one, expect to get it around October of this year.

Side A’s Got the Party Mix: Cassette Shaped Coffee Table

Cassette Shaped Coffee Table

Pay homage to a part of your past and recall the awesomeness of the era of mix tapes with this cassette tape-shaped coffee table. The gigantic cassette tape sits atop custom made steel legs and is built with removable remote and bottle holders, cleverly positioned in cassette’s holes. The coolest part is probably the cassette’s label, which you can actually write on because that part is actually a white board. Neat huh?

The cassette tape coffee table was commissioned by Rob Ireland and built by Ross Langley. You can check out more photos here.


Couchmaster Lets You Game All Day, Stay On Your Sofa


If you’ve built a sweet gaming rig, but have come to realize that sitting at your desk all day isn’t the most comfortable of propositions, you might want to start looking at options, like the Couchmaster. As long as you’re ok with playing on your TV, the Couchmaster gives you the ability to feel just as if you were on your desk but while sitting in the comfort of your sofa.

The Couchmaster comes in two main variants, Basic and Pro. The main difference between the two is that the Pro version’s desk has holes and hidden panels for cable management. There’s also an even more pro Pro version that comes with a 4-port 900mA USB 3.0 hub and a 15ft USB 3.0 extension cable. All Couchmasters come with a pair of small bags, as well as stick-on Velcro strips for attaching the wrist rests and bags.

It’s a smart product that caters to a very specific niche, but anyone in this boat will likely be delighted to find out this exists. The convenience doesn’t come cheap, however. “Nerdytec sells the Couchmaster Basic for €99 (~$110 USD), the Couchmaster Pro for €129 (~$140 USD) and the Couchmaster Pro with USB hub and extension cable for €149 (~$170 USD). If you just want the Couchmaster Pro’s desk and not the armrests, you can get that too for €79 (~$90 USD).”

Can The Force Help You Afford This $10,000 R2-D2 Pinball Table/Coffee Table?


You have to be a serious fan of the franchise to consider dropping 10 large on a coffee table. Sure, it’s decked out to look a lot like R2-D2. And sure, it’s got a fully functional pinball table as its core. And yeah, sure, there’s even a mini slideprojector (picturing R2 in the Death Stars’ sewage), a flashlight, sounds, lighting programs, and a fully functional animated droid on the play field. And ok, yeah, it did take over 320 hours to assemble… But $10,000? Yeah. That’s a heck of a lot for a piece of functional furniture, no matter how cool it looks. Still, if you’re really motivated, it does look like the company, Altar Furniture, will make you one.

Instant Seating? Pop-Up Cardboard Furniture

Fold Out Cardboard Furniture


A real-life pop-up book? Yes, please, only this one’s got a pretty cool twist: the cardboard opens to reveal pop-up furniture. Unfortunately, you can’t sit on the chairs or use the table unless you’re as light as a feather. The concept is still pretty fun, though, and it makes you wonder: is pop-up furniture really that far off?

The cardboard furniture was designed by Liddy Scheffknecht and Armin B. Wagner.

LEGO Brick Coffee Table


It looks like we’re going to be talking about coffee tables today. The LEGO Coffee table is the creation of Easy seller Branching Outward, and is made to order from lacquered wood and comes in a variety of finishes. It measures 28.5 inches x 16 inches x 15 inches, eight in at 48lbs. and costs $375(USD). They’ll ship to the continental US only, so the rest of the world will have to go without this beauty.

Up Balloon Coffee Table


It’s never a bad thing to add a bit of whimsy to your living space. Sadly that often requires having a substantial amount of disposable income, and the Up Balloon Coffee Table by UK designer Christopher Duffy is no exception. It’ll set you back a pretty hefty £7,800 (or about $11,627USD). Made from toughened glass, metal resin composite, and toughened steel rods, the table looks like a bunch of balloons supporting a glass top. It plays with the illusion of lightness, of levitation and buoyancy; a glass top that weighs several pounds is being supported by what appears to be lighter-than-air balloons. It’s a conversation piece measuring 47 inches across by 19 inches high.

IKEA To Incorporate Wireless Charging In Many Of Its Offerings


Wireless charging is being increasingly included in more and more devices, and it’s about time furniture manufacturers took advantage of this reality. So it’s with great pleasure that we find out about IKEA’s plans to do just that. They’ve endorsed the Qi Wireless Charging standard from the Wireless Power Consortium, and will be rolling out home furnishings with the functionality in the coming months. This means bedside tables, lamps and desks will have a special area on which you’ll be able to simply put down your phone and start charging. No more cables to plug in at night. Considering IKEA is the world’s largest furniture retailer, this move will likely put pressure to make wireless charging ubiquitous, and hopefully one day convince Apple to include it in its handsets, a move it should have made years ago. Of course when they do so, they’ll act as if they invented the thing and call it something different, but in the end it doesn’t matter: cables need to disappear.

“IKEA said the wireless charging home furnishings will be available in Europe and North America this April, followed by a global rollout.”
