Stuart Melrose's furniture pieces look like they belong in a Pixar film. They are more than just simple and practical cabinets and seating. Instead, they each have distinctive and adorable characteristics that are both obvious and subtle. For instance, one drawer set is positioned like a quirky head atop an actual body while another storage unit features a colorful fringe for legs.

Presented at the 2012 designersblock during Interiors UK, Stuart Melrose's designs are incredibly colorful and unique. Originally a fabricator and builder, Stuart Melrose transitioned into furniture making after studying 3D design, which happened to involve fine carpentry, metal working, mould making and finishing techniques. Stuart Melrose says, "I love experimenting with materials and pushing new ways of fabrication. I am an uncompromising perfectionist and all the pieces are individually hand made to the finest quality." Stats for Quirky Character Furniture Trending: Older & Buzzing
