Humans aren't long for this world, and the MAD Martian Collection is a set of furniture and decor accessories designed for when humanity begins to shed its earthly bounds. As its name suggests, the MAD Martian Collection is meant for use not by the inhabitants of Earth, but for the brave souls who will one day (in the near future) colonize Mars.

Martian colonies seem like something out of science fiction, but high-profile companies are putting earnest efforts into sending people to the Red Planet, including Elon Musk's SpaceX program. Since the planet is so fundamentally different from the one that all humans currently occupy and have occupied for all of history, it demands unique and novel design. MAD's dining table, chaise lounge, candlestick, floor-to-ceiling lights, and console table mimic the landscape of Mars while still giving its future users reminiscences of home.
