12 Pieces of Furniture You Never Thought Of

With an increasingly demanding pool of consumers, designers find it more and more difficult to come up with furniture that impresses or stands out, especially if the goal is to have something unique or something unusual and unconventional in your home. In order to meet such demands, designers constantly come up with all sorts of strange and crazy creations, some of which we’ve gathered here. It’s difficult to even include these pieces in a category and some even created us problems when we had to figure out their functionality. Enjoy!

It’s very difficult to find a good term to describe this piece. It’s not exactly a bed but neither is it a sofa. It’s made exclusively of oak, it has curved lines, one supporting leg and a very unusual shape which doesn’t resemble anything else we usually include in our homes.

Sometimes a piece impresses not with its shape but with the materials the designer chooses for it. In some cases, everyday items are repurposed and used in all sorts of ingenious ways. These chandeliers, for example, are made of coat hangers.
