I already have a tough time with my one and only cactus -- I can't imagine how many times I would prick myself on this unique Magistral Cabinet. That is, if every point on this stunning piece of furniture was actually sharp. Thankfully, the edges are rounded enough to not hurt you, but pointy enough to give the piece a rather dangerous edge.

Designed by Sebastian Errazuriz, the Magistral Cabinet seems to solidify his enchantment with all things prickly. Errazuriz's last design was called Porcupine Cabinet for a very good reason. Yet the Magistral Cabinet looks more like a torture chamber coffin rather than an animal.

The Magistral Cabinet sports 80,000 bamboo skewers, which took 12 woodworkers to hammer in over a span of six weeks. The Magistral Cabinet is currently on display at the Cristina Grajales Gallery in New York.
