Lord Raffles Lion Throne Chair

Filexd under: Animals,Decor,Furniture,Home — Tags: , , , , , , , — jane @

How full of yourself do you have to be to order this chair? I do think it’s pretty awesome, but unless you are ordering a bunch to go around your dining table I think it could be a little tacky. Trust me I am the first to lord it over someone and clearly I deserve the chair, but I don’t think that a common person, such as yourself, could pull it off. Just sayin’. Buy yours here for the whopping sale price of $1999.00 each.

Finland’s Silent People

Filexd under: Art,Misc.,News/Articles,Weird Stuff — Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , — jane @

Just off¬†Highway 5 outside of Suomussalmi, Finland there is an artist installation that is creeping people out. More than one thousand still figures made out of straw and wood are dressed in colorful clothing and facing the highway. The artist refuses to explain the meaning behind it preferring people to come up with their own interpretation. My interpretation? Creepy shit that I’ll have nightmares about. Check out the story and more photos here.

Squiddy Table

This here is what they call a Squiddy Table because the legs look like they belong to a sea squid. Is it just me or is squiddy just an awesome word? It just sounds cool. These tables, which are available in different designs are made from Alder wood and run anywhere from $500 – $800. Yikes! So worth it though just to be able to say you own something called a squiddy. Find out more here.

Screaming Mask

mask2Technically this piece is actually called Yawning Mask. When I saw it for the first time I didn’t think he was yawning at all. It looks more like a ghost or something screaming. It totally creeped me out and therefore earned a spot on my blog. I actually found this in a Signals catalog, which surprised me. Once in a while they have an odd piece in there, but this one was just too creepy to pass up. Maybe it’s the way it’s photographed that creeps me out. There’s just this emptiness behind it that makes it appear soulless. Is that a word? Anyway, I can’t imagine anyone but someone like me wanting this in their house and I’m not even sure about me. It’s beautifully hand carved in Indonesia from Hibiscus wood. It appears to be very smooth. It states in the description, “Don’t be surprised if you have the sudden urge to yawn.” Really?! So far, I have not yawned even once looking at it. They also describe it as being humorous and serene. I’m not sure about that. It actually reminds me of the mask from¬†Scream to be honest and they aren’t exactly serene movies, though they are humorous. What do you think? Does it scare you or make you yawn?
