Weird Furniture: Straight Line Designs

This furniture is the antithesis of Straight Line Designs' handle, and may actually be, believe it or not, more reserved than the other works you'll find in their portfolio. The Canadian company designs whimsical custom furniture that takes on a life of its own. More often than not, it's built for child's play, but they're often commissioned for trade show booths, movie and TV props, and retail environments.
Shown above (clockwise from top left) are the "Bad Table," "Daddy Long Legs," "Melting," "Accordian," and "Burnt Leg Table." Not surprisingly, designer Judson Beaumont cites his influences as Walt Disney, Dr. Seuss, Warner Brothers, Pee Wee Herman, Philippe Starck, and Frank Gehry, as well as Saturday morning cartoons. He also does not like green eggs and ham.
