There is a playfulness to the experimental furniture designs of Edward Slater that will both boggle and entertain people's minds. A past student in the product design program at Brunel University in Uxbridge, London, he dropped out in his second year after realizing it wasn't a good fit. That didn't stop Edward Slater from indulging his love of furniture design.

A cameraman and editor at a London media startup by day, Edward Slater retreats to his backyard shed at night to create surreal pieces of furniture. For instance, his Wooden Chair has an protruding X on the seat that makes it look very uncomfortable. But it is set on springs that depresses once sat on. Edward Slater's Bedside Stronghold, complete with moats, walls and a drawbridge, is worthy of 'Game of Thrones' fans. Stats for Surreal Experimental Furniture Trending: Older & Buzzing
