Kenneth Cobonpue & Disney’s Star Wars Furniture Collection Launches In The US

The collection consists of three armchairs, lamps and a foot stool, which were created with modern materials and technologies to emulate the universe of the franchise.

The Imperial Tie Fighter Wings Armchair, which features handwoven polyethylene, is modeled after the symbol of the Galactic Empire’s fleet.

The Vader Easy Armchair includes an open weave canopy and a black cushioned seat that has been stitched to look like Darth Vader’s mask.

Another standout piece is the Little Jedi Hanging Lamp, featuring several miniature figurines of Jedi Knights holding lightsabers.

“We wanted to incorporate the essence of each Star Wars character into the designs, while staying true to our aesthetic and process of creating them by hand. We reimagined the Star Wars universe through the lens of the Filipino craftsman and creative,” said Cobonpue in a statement.

The “Star Wars” furniture collection is now available for the first time in the United States, at select retailers and showrooms across the country. Although online ordering is not an option yet, you can find the list of distributors on the designer’s website.

IKEA Recreates The Living Rooms From The Simpsons, Stranger Things & Friends

You definitely know the rooms, but how well do you know the furnishings?

A new ad campaign from IKEA in the United Arab Emirates has some fun with three of television’s most iconic living rooms by recreating each one solely with IKEA furniture and decorations—plus some help from 3-D design software.

Created by Publicis Spain, the “IKEA Real Life” campaign took two months to track down all the right pieces that are currently on sale from Ikea. They were then compiled and designed via 3-D software to look as close as possible to the memorable living rooms from The Simpsons, Friends and Stranger Things.

On a microsite for the campaign, you can see each room and learn more about the furnishings featured in the ads.

Whether you’re looking to use your space more creatively, or just get the most out of your studio apartment, Ori Robotic Furniture is a great solution. The name of the product gets its name from Japanese Origami and the tech comes out of the MIT Media Lab.

Each unit has the ability to slide gracefully in your space by simply pushing a button on the Ori dial, which then transforms the room from a bedroom to a living room, to a office in seconds. As apartments in the city get smaller and smaller, products like Ori become more important to making a smaller space comfortable and classy.

Rocket Coffee Table

Cypriot-based designer Stelios Mousarris conceived of this fun glass tabletop that blasts into the air aboard five wooden rockets. The designer was inspired by the nostalgia of his own childhood toy collection and he tried to embody the “retro” look with cartoon-like puffs of clouds at the base of each rocket. The table combines a variety of techniques from 3D printing to lathe work, and each rocket position is customizable. The piece is currently available for pre-order through his website for €5000.

The Woolsey Agent Desk

With plenty of storage, a lockable stow area, secret compartment and modular power, it’s no wonder that California-based designer Sean Woolsey decided to name his desk after Bond, James Bond. The Woolsey Agent Desk ($3,850) is made of American Black Walnut finished with a natural, food safe, hand rubbed oil and wax finish that sits atop a powder-coated steel base, but it’s all the other features that make this 60″ x 30″ x 30″ really stand out.

The built-in leather mouse pad hides a secret compartment that can only be opened with the included magnetic wood geode. The drawers are lined with black leather bottoms and feature Blum soft close drawer slides. The lockable stow area is perfect for a laptop, iPad or even whiskey when you want to secure it. Woolsey even added a magnetic power block with 2 power sockets and 4 USB ports that can be attached anywhere on the steel frame.
