Here we have compiled a menagerie of the unusual.

 Canvas - seating

Originally he created the bookshelf for his own home, and then recreated the design using mahogany natural tops and black lacquered legs. Creative, original and sure to surprise, the biblioteca bookshelf will no doubt become one of your favorite conversation pieces.

Walk - Don't Walk

There's nothing pedestrian about this chair. Artisan John Carter combines fine art, interior design and social commentary for a truly one-of-a-kind creation. The New York City "Walk/Don't Walk" signs actually work - and a remote control is included to turn them on and off. The legs are made from reconfigured, customized steel street sign brackets, with galvanized, heavy duty self-leveling feet.

The chair can come complete with all the genuine scuffs and stains of its New York City roots or can come "squeaky clean" with a fresh coat of paint.The seating surfaces have been reglazed with one inch-thick polished resin, cushioned with felt suspension. The chair plugs into a standard 115V AC outlet, and the standard bulbs (included) are replaceable. Handmade in New York City. 

Bear Sculptural Chair at design toscano

So ornate that it's practically a sculpture-within-a-sculpture, this incredible replica work of rustic decor has roots in late-18th century Swiss antiques shown in the great international exhibitions alongside works by Tiffany, Galle and Linke. Originally carved for music hall performers, a trio of bears dances across this whimsical addition to lodge decor or Western home decor.

Since he was a kid, Graham Bergh has been making things out of found objects. After getting his Master's in Economics and Environmental Policy, he wanted to become an innovative recycling professional when he got a flat tire on his bike and said, "Hmmm...interesting material..." So he got to building creations by hand out of recycled bicycle parts, and soon gathered a team of artists to come up with new ideas and assemble the ideas they had. The results are distinctive accents like this bike chain bowl, which is perfect for keys, change and more. Handmade in Oregon.
