Everyone should have that one piece of furniture that draws all the attention in the room. A stylish lamp, a unique coffee table, a chair that looks like it arrived on a spaceship from 2095. While time travel (and space travel) aren’t possible at that scale (yet?), here are 10 striking, modern, and incredible furniture designs.
Hold my Paper
Not every room needs to have an “accent piece”, but if you’re going to have an accent piece in your bathroom then you might as well make it this toilet paper holder from Art & Artifact design studio.
A Reading Paradise Armchair
My main criteria for a good armchair is that it should be comfortable, it should feel like it “isolates” you from the outer world, and it should look cool as heck. This chair combines all three. The “wall” on the left makes you feel like you’re in a cozy corner nook, the armrest on the right has a perfect place for your morning coffee or evening tea, and the rest of the chair has space for all the books that you’re going to want to read while you’re sitting in the chair. I want it.
This chair is made by TILT.
Not all furniture has to be for you! Don’t be selfish – get something special for your four-legged friend! Like this cat shelf by MYZOO! Your cat will absolutely love it. It will know that nobody’s going to bother it with petting, but it will still be able to see everything that’s happening around the room.
Honestly, I wouldn’t mind a space like that for myself, if it was possible.
When I was talking about furniture from 2095 I had this specific chair in mind. It’s just a concept design for now, but if it were to go into production it would consist of 8 magnetized cylinders that you could place in any shape you want. If you stacked them all nicely it would look like a modern-looking armchair, but if you messed things up a little bit? It would look like a chair designed for an alien body.
This chair was designed by Mateusz Chodorowski.
I’m not a fan of impractical lighting solutions, but something about this lamp really intrigues me. It seems to take up a lot of space, it doesn’t seem to be making that much light, but imagine how cool it would look to turn this on in a dimly-lit room during a party with your friends? So cool. I want this lamp by Ovuud, please.
Log your visit
This one isn’t for your living room, that’s for sure! But having a reception desk like this in your place of work would certainly make a bold statement to anyone who comes in for a meeting or a job interview. It combines the modern elements of glass and LED lighting with the sturdy, natural tree trunk that serves as the “anchor” for this astounding piece of furniture by ACDF Architecture.
A LOUD Table
Yeah there’s Google Home and Home Pod and Alexa. But what’s their purpose other than a glorified Bluetooth speaker? Why even have a bluetooth speaker when you can have a whole entire Bluetooth table by Victrola?
Perfect for Pinterest
I don’t have much to say about this clothespin table by Vincent Begogne other than that it is as cool as it is weird.
What’s better than furniture that goes well with the room? Furniture that blends in with the room. This glass chair by Artur de Menezes will look great in any room.
Sometimes you want a piece of furniture that lets all your guests know that they shouldn’t overstay their welcome. What you’ll be saying is “Have a seat! Make yourself at home!” But what your guests will hear is “Please make this interaction quick and leave me alone to relax and read my book in my amazing bookshelf chair.”
