By Sana Ahmad - March 04, 2020

We all want beautiful pieces of furniture to adorn our houses and that is a perfectly normal thing to want. From standard size beds to antique looking dressing tables, hopping furniture stores for stuff that feels just right for you is actually quite fun. While most pieces you will come across, whether in furniture stores or online, are going to follow standard designs and patterns but wouldn’t it be interesting if you think out of the box and choose something completely unique, something that defines your personality or something that is really interesting to look at. Every now and then, designers take the liberty of breaking the set rules and go on to create masterpieces that can either look outrageous or full of creativity. That is just a matter of perspective really folks! Aren’t furniture sets also an expression of art? In addition to their functionality, both indoor and outdoor furniture pieces, serve a symbolic and sometimes even a religious purpose as well. Made from a slew of materials, be it plastic, metal or wood, some pieces of furniture are capable of making anybody go “WOW! We need that in our living room!!”

Now, prepare to be amazed as we look at some inspired furniture pieces!! (some may even call them weird)

Wood is one of the favorite materials when it comes to furniture. Wooden furniture pieces not only add class to your living space but also are capable of making your choice, when it comes to furniture, talk of the town (obviously in a good way). While oak, pine and ebony are commonly used wood for the purpose of making furniture, how would you feel if we told you that you can get a chair made of pencils? Yes, you heard it right! If you get one for your bedroom make it a point to stay away from the pointy ends!

A perfect combination of cabinets, drawers and cupboards, this wonderful piece is not only massively functional but also looks unique.
