15 Weird Furniture Pieces That Will Leave You Intrigued And Confused
When you go over to someone’s house and you like their couch, you don’t often think of telling them:
“Wow, that’s so intriguing.”
or (with a puzzled look on your face)
“What a confusing piece of furniture.”
You usually just say “cool couch”, right?
Well, not with these 15 pieces of weird furniture. They’ll get your mind wondering how the heck people come up with these things. And for most of them, assembly is not required. Bonus.
Single Bed For A Side-Sleeper
As long as you sleep in exactly the same position every night, and you don’t move, this is the bed for you. Obviously a piece of art and not an actual mattress, this piece was crafted with some serious ingenuity in mind. But what the heck do you do when you have a sleepover?
2. Loopita Couple’s Chair
This piece was crafted for couples who want to face each other while they’re reading or working or doing whatever. I don’t really understand why you’d want to do that, but the people who buy this chair do. Designed by Victor Aleman, you should really check out his Insta… this dude has some great ideas. I mean, I guess some people would like to face their partner when they’re reading. Sure.
3. The Animal Chair
You know those walls that have drawings of wings on them, and people take pics of themselves standing there and it looks like they have wings? It’s not original anymore, but anyway this chair takes that concept to the next level.
You can get a chair that gives you antlers, or bunny ears. I’m sure there are cat ear options as well, and maybe even… elephant ears? And if you look long enough, you’ll even find a chair with wings for all the Instagram influencers who want to fly.
4. The Sheep Chair
I’m gonna go out on a limb and say: Not Vegan. Personally, these look like taxidermied heads to me, so this one gets the award for being ‘confusing’ and ‘creepy’ at the same time. While it looks comfortable and warm, I kinda feel like the head in the back would poke its nose into your spine, no? It’s like a sheepish version of Ghidorah and I’m not there for it but we’re all different, so if you like it… that’s cool.
5. The Human Anatomy Chair
I know what you’re thinking: this is supposed to be a post about furniture, not just chairs, right? But seriously, the level of nerd it must have taken to come up with this idea is commendable. It doesn’t look comfortable at all but I definitely appreciate the attention to detail. If a chair had muscles, for sure it would look something like this.
6. The Person Chair
Personally, I’d sit in this chair. It’s not as risqué as the one I’ve saved for last 👇, but it’s still weird enough to be interesting. This piece of weird furniture looks kinda hard and may cause hemorrhoids, so there’s also that to consider. And I bet it would be difficult to match your head to its head given different spinal lengths and things like that. But all in all, this chair would definitely create some interesting conversation.
7. The Hairy Stool
K so the hairy stool is actually a thing. Look it up on Instagram. Apparently people get kicks out of creating stools that look like they’re covered in hair. That’s neat.
P.S. Does this remind anyone else of those sock bun thingies that ballerinas put in their hair?
8. The Cellar Bed
This one is really original and cool. I can see it in a winery that also doubles as a retreat centre and they’re really trying to get you in that wine kind of mood. I think sleeping in here would make me feel safe and warm, especially if that cedar is raw and smells like trees. Nice work, whichever wine lover invented this.
9. The Pig Couch
Why wouldn’t you want a couch that’s shaped like a pig? Talk about weird furniture! And if you want it to be even more cool, make it a sad looking pig with awkward velvet legs. Pig lovers unite – this couch is for you!
10. The Cow Cupboard
While it looks kind of rudimentary (if I’m honest), I can also see the draw for a farm kitchen. The use of space in this is highly questionable, but what’s not is those dishes. They look really simple and nice. However, I bet sitting in a cupboard shaped like a cow can have a flattering effect on a lot of dishes.
11. Canvas Furniture
Wait. What? When you look directly at this canvas from the front, the pieces of furniture just look like paintings. But don’t stop there! When you look a bit closer, you’ll see that they’re actually 3D pieces of art you can sit in! They’ve been carved into the canvas in a way that allows them to serve a dual purpose. They can be both hung on a wall as art… and act as furniture at the same time!
12. Staircase Storage
SMART. I love this idea and it belongs in an article about weird furniture. It’s an invention you can only appreciate if you’re lacking space in your home. I’ve often found myself gazing at the wall thinking of how ill-used the space is when I have clutter that needs a home! This is your solution! Weird furniture! And you can stack them up and you don’t even need a ladder because the drawers are the ladder! Brilliant.
But wait. How do you come back down?
13. The Pencil Chair
Believe it or not, there are multiple versions of this and they’re all pretty cool. This one, however, is made fully from pencils, and is showcased in a gallery because it’s that artistic. I love the they specified that if you do try to make this chair at home, make sure that none of the sharp ends are pointing upwards. Thanks Tips.
14. The Coffin Couch
Far cooler and more encouraging than The Pig Couch, the coffin couch is pure afterlife luxury. Goth, Vampire, and monster lovers can get crazy kicks out of this velvet-laden wonder that will add some dark mystery to your living room. Or your den. Man cave? Who are we kidding, it’s going in the basement where you keep the rest of your vampire-inspired furniture, right?
15. Super Weird Furniture: The Erotic Chair
I wish her face could look just a little bit less interested… it would make for an even more intriguing and confusing experience. This erotic doll features a comfortable seat made of leather – the same leather, presumably, as her knee-high boots, arm-length gloves, and the belt holding her in place. Yes, it’s highly sexual. But if you have a dungeon or a sex cave of some kind (don’t we all?) it will feature nicely.
We hope you’ve enjoyed this collection of unique furniture and cool furniture. While some are awkward, some are downright cool. Which ones you think are which says a lot about your personality!
