Although the design firm has certainly explored the idea of genetics and art in the past, DNA11's newest collection of unique furnishings is a step above and beyond most modern indoor decor.

Having the option to add some personal flare to a couch, painting or bed sprawl is always fantastic. But the Las Vegas-based firm DNA11 was determined to create household trimmings that are entirely a reflection of your heritage and identity, as opposed to a generic, patterned product. The company invites you to send in a mouth swab sample or fingerprint, so that they can map your DNA and produce bowls, rugs, paintings and water-walls based on its structure. Moreover, DNA11 stresses that their secure laboratories ensure complete discretion. Though the custom products range from $1,000 to $10,000 in price, I'm tempted to raise the funds for one of those water-walls!
