Top 10 Nerdy and Unusual Sofas

Is it wrong to hate sofas? Sure they are comfortable and after a few years, you get your own little “bum grove” in them that fits as snug as a bug in a rug. But there are just too many downsides for me. One of the main things is that they eat things! Remote controls, food crumbs, toys and enough loose change to be able to buy all those things that it ate in the first place!  And another is that when you change your decor in the living room suddenly your sofa looks out-of-place and completely random! So I was thinking that the next time I buy a sofa I will get one that is already completely random and stands out in the first place…

10 – Don’t swim with fished when you can sit with them!

This rather amazing sofa was first seen in my post “10 Most Unique Aquariums” and had quite a good response. And it sure is unusual making it well worth considering.

9 – Is your sofa ringing?!?

Now, this is cool, a sofa made from an old phone box is a great idea, good recycling and it looks fantastic! Shame you can’t buy them because someone with a bit of craft skill in making these could indeed make a lot of money because I know I would buy one!

8 – That’s strange, I found some sofa down the back of the Lego!?!

There are many, many different Lego inspired sofas out there for sale and most of them will cost you an arm and a leg, but not this one!

7 – Sonic would be proud.

How cool is this Sega sofa? Well I think it is very cool but sadly it was hand-made so we can’t buy them, but someone with some craft skills might well be able to replicate it. I have to wonder if it is just the nerd in me that finds this amazing or if it really is.

6 – Sit and Drivetime

There are most probably hundreds of thousands of these types of car sofas in the world but for me, nothing looks as good as the rear of a Chevy turned into a sofa.

5 – Transformers: Sofas in Disguise

Now, this is nothing short of design genius. I think that this is perfect for a teenagers bedroom or maybe just in a spare room as when you have guests over it will cover all your needs in one handy bit of furniture.

4 – This is just the ‘type’ I was looking for!

I am not 100% sure if I like this or not, but I could never deny how unusual or amazing it is.  As with most designer sofas, it will cost you the earth but you are guaranteed to have 1 of only a few ever made.

3 – The 2 seater that sleeps 4!

Do you not have a spare room in that guest bedroom? Maybe you have a lot of guest or friends around your house that will often sleep over. Well, then this is the ultimate transforming sofa while it might just look like a humble 2 seater sofa with some storage space it can fold out flat to sleep up to 4 people!

2 – Today’s the day the teddy bears get turned into a sofa!

This incredible sofa was made by a designer and is appropriately called ” The Harrods Sofa Project” and is made by over 200 teddy bears!

1 – Don’t go chasing Waterfalls!

These amazing waterfall inspired sofas are just jaw dropping and while the likes of us lot could never afford it, that doesn’t stop it from being the world’s most unusual and, therefore, most amazing sofa.
