$200 CPU stand from Neiman Marcus is just a fancy wood boxNeiman Marcus hasn’t heard about the recent economic downturn and so they want you to buy this $200 wood box that’s been jazzed up with some fancy design. It doesn’t even look that great. See that matching keyboard holder under the monitor with the pull-out keyboard tray? It’s an additional $200.

In Neiman Marcus’ world they see no problem with you spending $400 for boxes to that will ugly up your PC. This Ugly Betty is just for the PC and “Not compatible with Macintosh computers.” With shipping and processing at $42 for the CPU stand and $31 for the keyboard holder, by the time you pay tax, it’s over $500.

Stardust Multimedia Table with dual touchscreensHey look what just appeared from the future. Treecycled Furniture has unveiled the Stardust Multimedia Table which sports a few 15″ touchscreen LCD monitors from BenQ. It’s the kind of table that would be perfect on any Cylon starship.

The multimedia table also features an Accoustics amplifier and Fostex speakers, along with RGB LEDs in the middle section on top and on the legs. Like what you see? Me too, but it will forever remain in my future and never in my now due to the $14,726 price tag.

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on September 16th, 2009

Jeffrey Stephenson’s retro side table/computer systemWe’ve featured some of Jeffrey Stephenson’s work before. He’s a man born in the wrong era, with a love of blending retro design with modern devices. This beauty looks like it’s from yesteryear, but it’s new. A black walnut mission-style side table that doubles as a computer system.

It features a slide-in standard ATX mid tower case and decorative panels that are easily replaced and can be changed whenever you want something different. It also sports a bottom-to-top air cooling system with a large intake filter and dual stage temperature-controlled exhaust fans.

Pac-Man Chair looks hungry

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on September 10th, 2009

Pac-Man Chair looks hungryA chair in the shape of Pac-Man just makes perfect sense. Especially if your room looks like a maze from the game. It’s only a concept right now, but it’s perfect for geeks and retro arcade lovers.

It makes an artistic statement that says that we are all ghosts when lounging in Pac-Man’s mouth. Or perhaps some of us are ghosts and others power-pellets. Now, if only it could gobble up certain guests on command…

Modi Sofa is configurable

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on August 23rd, 2009

Modi Sofa is configurableAccording to my wife good furniture that fits your unique style and taste is hard to find. The Italian designed Modi Sofa may make things easier. Sort of like Lego, it allows for nearly infinite customization, using modules which you insert in the base to form different shapes and styles of sofas.

There are flat modules, back or arm rest modules, corner pieces, etc. They all fit neatly into the grid base. Finally, you can make your sofa how you want it. They even have a glass top to make an end table or coffee table if you like. Pretty neat. All furniture should be modular.

The Phantom Bar features real ejection seats for $225,000

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on August 18th, 2009

The Phantom Bar features real ejection seats for $225,000This bar consists of real Martin-Baker Mk7 ejection seats, taken right out of a F4 Phantom (minus the jet packs). At last you can experience the effects of alcohol while pretending to be a Top Gun pilot. That bar does have drinks right? It looks grossly tiny.

All it takes is $225,000 to own. I say you make the ejection seats fully functional. Then you can have a good drinking game. First ones to pass out get ejected through the ceiling, while the last guy sitting gets to relax and enjoy his victory.

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on July 19th, 2009

iBum Chair brings office fun homeHow many times have you photocopied your butt in the office and wished you had that same convenient technology at home? Well, now you can. In chair form. The iBum Chair takes the joke way too far. Whenever you sit on it, it will photocopy your rear end and the scanned image will be printed from the right side of the chair.

Sure, it ceases to funny almost immediately, but for those who need to keep tabs on their posterior, you’ll know what it’s up too every time you sit. Or maybe you just want to make sure it’s looking good. This chair will show you.

Pac-Man Coffee Table

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on June 18th, 2009

Pac-Man Coffee TableWhen you have a table as awesome as the Pac-Man Coffee Table, you better use coasters. Or else. This table is all kinds of awesome. It’s really a superbly detailed work of ingenious geek art.

Syd Bolton from Ontario, Canada contacted designer Erin McFadden, who took a plain coffee table and turned it into this. One of the coolest geek tables ever. Now why can we not buy this kind of furniture in stores? You just know that he goes ballistic when his friends don’t use coasters. And I don’t blame him.

Coin Bank, for vertical money saving

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on May 27th, 2009

Coin Bank, for vertical money savingThis bank is like a game of Connect Four. Except, that you would need to connects thousands…Of coins. I won. Where? There, diagonally. Pretty sneaky sis! This bank stands on its own and is a piece of furniture all by itself. It’s called the Coin Bank and I can only guess that when it is emptied from the bottom, it’s like winning big in Vegas as the coins pile up around you.

The design is simple. Just two pieces of glass pressed together with pegs between. Just drop your change in on top and watch it fall. All of the coins stay in place until you unlock and empty it.

The Messenger Bag Director’s Chair

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on April 7th, 2009

The Messenger Bag Director’s ChairHere’s a transformer that Michael Bay had nothing to do with. Pretty cool. Transform your bag into a chair. Because historically chairs have been tough to carry around. Which is why you don’t see too many people walking down the street carrying them. But that’s all changed now.

The Messenger Bag Director’s Chair comes with telescoping legs and a folding backrest so you can fold it down to less than 4” thick in just seconds. It’s durable too, with an aluminum and steel frame and a 600-denier nylon mesh seat supporting up to 250 lbs. The sweetness doesn’t end there however. How about an integrated cup holder and two pockets in the armrests? This chair insure that no matter where you go, you’ll always have a seat.

Ping Pong dining table

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on March 31st, 2009

Ping Pong dining tableThe Ping Pong dining table is two tables in one. Forget dinner and a movie, treat your date to some dinner and a game of Ping Pong. You know how much use you get out of your dinner table? Hardly any, when it isn’t dinner time. It’s a one trick pony. A waste of space. But this table pulls double duty.

When you aren’t eating, you are always up for a game of Ping Pong, right? Damn straight skippy. Now you can play Ping Pong any time you like…Except during dinner, unless you want a really interesting game.

Recycled Shopping Cart chairs

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on March 5th, 2009

Recycled Shopping Cart chairsWhat could be more comfortable than a chair that reminds you that you need to go buy groceries? Just about everything probably. Such a chair would force you to say stupid things when you spill stuff, like, “Clean up on isle me”. Sadly these chairs no longer have the squeaky and out of alignment wheels. So doing living room stunts is out of the question. Too bad. That’s a deal-breaker for me.

Max McMurdo takes carts that are landfill bound and turns them into chairs. If you ask me they make good patio pieces. If grocery shopping is your bag. Get it. Bag…Paper or plastic?

Leather chair hides your Billiards accessories

Posted in Furniture by Conner Flynn on February 24th, 2009

Leather chair hides your Billiards accessoriesDamn their hides. The rich have all the cool things. Like this leather chair that takes up a bunch of space and only seats one. That’s because the rest of the chair is devoted to hiding some of your other rich accessories, like your billiards stuff.

It helps keep your overpriced pad all neat and tidy. Who cares that it looks freakish and pompous and only seats one. If you want two people to be able to sit during a Billiards game, you’ll just buy two and store some more expensive stuff in the second one. Ahhh, it’s good to be rich and buy fugly things.

Fender Guitar Headstock coffee tableWhile you’re rocking out in your living room, playing Guitar Hero, rest your drinks on this awesome Fender Guitar Headstock Coffee Table. Designed after the classic headstock of a Fender Stratocaster, these $750 tables are made of solid maple, custom stained and varnished to match the color of the vintage guitar.

It would be great to put a screen in and add some buttons, converting it into a full fledged Guitar Hero table that you and your friends can play. But that’s just me.
