35 Pieces of Surreal Furniture

From Colorful Bubble Chairs to Surreal Nesting Seating

— April 10, 2014 — Art & Design
Surreal furniture comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, from nesting seating to others that look as though they are climbing up the wall. Whether you're bored with a current living room layout or just looking for something to add a certain "je ne sais quoi" to a bedroom, these pieces will provide the necessary inspiration.

The Melting Chair by Philipp Aduatz will certainly make one's home look like it's constantly set at a high temperature. The designer has made a seat that has a melting effect at the bottom, making one think that the chair will just disintegrate at any moment. However, rest assured that the seat is not going anywhere.

Nesting seating and bubble chairs are just a few of the quirky and surreal finds for furniture on the market these days.
