96 Fun House Furniture Pieces

From Jungle Gym Recliners to Ball-Filled Loungers

— February 28, 2014 — Art & Design
One thing furniture does have to be is functional, but that doesn’t stop these fun house furniture pieces from being boring. In addition to offering a place to sit, or a flat surface to place an object on, these whimsical designs adopt novel shapes or additional playful features.

If you’re shopping for a new couch and are looking for something truly outrageous to sit on, there are designs that take the shape of giant creatures like octopi or cats, or are covered with a fabric printed with the face of Nicholas cage.

These playful furniture designs and wacky pieces of decor infuse homes with a sense of whimsy and a seriously quirky sense of style.
