Furnathon 07 Highlights

From the responsible to the realistic to the outlandish and playful. This is the mix from last year's furnathon. We look forward to this kind of inventiveness and creativity in the weeks ahead.

Greg's Post - Exploration of what we might do with all the useless car parts in the not-so-distant future. How can the wasteful excesses of our past be put to good use in the future?

Shane's post - Has any one else become tired of having to walk all the way to the kitchen to pour yourself a draft beer. I know I have. Thats where the beer chair comes into play. All you have to do is reach over to the arm rest to get a refill. It has two taps and you can store a couple mini kegs as well as a CO2 tank right there in the chair. And of course it does recline, complete with a leg rest.

Ben's post - Forget a plaid couch and standard table sizes, this is the fantastical to be enjoyed as a part of everyday life. The animals would be rendered in any number of materials suited to the function-foam, wood, metal, plastic. The idea is meant to challenge our understanding of standard furniture design and to incorporate a symbolic note of the natural. Why can't we climb up to sit on 20' giraffe couch?

Chris's post - I needed a computer chair and I needed somewhere to put my records. My space and budget are limited so I devised this. It will be made from cardboard salvaged from Costco. These could potentially be stackable units made from other materials, I suppose.

Backyard bunker, for those seeking the kind of solitude only 10' of dirt can provide. Bonuses include a space for reading and natural light.
