Inspired by the work of American writer H. P. Lovecraft., here's an amazing tribute to Cthulhu by Karl Dupéré-Richer. At first sight, the seamless design of the Cthulhu Wall Lamp may seem to have been made from only a few different elements when in reality, the most random recycled materials were put together to form this masterpiece. 14 legs and 1 backrest of PVC patio chairs, a flowerpot, an umbrella stand, bicycle tires, cans, pieces of PVC pipes, an acrylic light globe, pieces of garden hoses, and auto body parts are some of the items used in making the Cthulhu Wall Lamp.

We've all been there. It starts pouring outside, and you awkwardly fumble for your umbrella while trying to balance that steaming hot coffee in your hand. Not only does it lead to awkward and potentially painful spillage, but it also makes walking around a chore. Morella hopes to solve all of that by being able to attach seamlessly to any type of umbrella and its reliable ability to keep all of your beverages completely vertical. Its most useful feature is its patented balanced-pivot design, which means that you can bend, fold, or turn your umbrella upside down while your two cup holders always keep the drinks upright.

Lamps, as anyone who cares about the ambience of their living area certainly knows, are about much more than just serving a practical function. The Megaton Floor Lamp not only does everything that a lamp should so, but is also a true piece of history that can be physically felt right in your living room. Its minimalist stand is complimented by an actual 100-lb bomb that's straight from the Korean War. Don't worry though; the bomb has been completely disabled! Possessing a metallic finish and simplistic, yet functional, design gives it a vintage-like and historical appeal that will hold weight with not just history buffs.

Regardless of your skill level, if you're into ping pong, the Ping Pong Door is a hard item to pass up, especially if you live in a small apartment. Designed by Tobias Fräenzel, it is a fully functional swing door that can also flip forward to become a complete ping pong table. It converts from one state to another with the simple flip of a switch. The only downside if that the decor of one of the rooms will have to match the bright green door.
