You know it, I know it, everyone knows it! I am a nerd, and so I have been thinking about how much I used to enjoy watching the next episode of Star Trek: The Next Generation or even the older original series. It felt like I belonged to something, something special. So now that I am a fair bit older maybe it is the time that I started to kit my house out a little bit in the things I love, or more importantly in the furniture I love…
Ten Amazing Bits of Star Trek Furniture Any True Trekkie Would Love
10 – Cat Tree
I remember Data having a cat called Spot. While the name may have been simple, this cat tree certainly isn’t. But to be fair to its maker it looks amazing and they have gone through the trouble of putting up a full making guide and list of things you need to make your very own as well. I just to make one then get a cat, because I can’t see my dog using this.
9 – Inflatable Chair
Any Star Trek fan worth his or her salt knows that a main bucket list item is to be able to say that you have sat or indeed wanted to sit in the Captain’s chair. And that dream can now become a reality with this inflatable chair that was first seen in my other Star Trek-themed post “Top 10 Best Gifts for Trekkies.”
8 – Coffee Table
While certainly not the best-looking coffee table in this list (see number 1 for that) it is none the less amazing. With the top section being full of LED lights, it really does look like it has just come off the set of Star Trek its self! Imagine this in the garden with a beer on top!
7 – Pet Bed
Why should I get all the Trekkie themed fun? My dog gets his own little bit of nerd star furniture with this rather comfy looking Captains chair pet bed! I might even get one of these for myself as well.
6 – Room Divider
This is just one item from an entire Star Trek collection of strong, mounted wood-framed room dividers. With a very high-quality grade canvas print on the panels and double hinged panel design, they could divide up any room you wanted to in true nerdy style.
5 – Bath Mat & Shower Curtain Set
OK, OK, so it might not be furniture, but it is still a Star Trek-themed gift idea for the home and that is why it is on this list. And just look at it! It’s epic and deserves a place here.
4 – Clock
Sadly this is not the sterling silver I would have wanted it to be, but never the less this amazing clock still looks amazing and is sure to make any wall look incredible. The hard bit will be deciding where to hang it!
3 – Themed Kitchen
Not only is this an incredible Trekkies dream kitchen, but it is a whole Star Trek themed house! With every room being themed in some way to the sci-fi phenomenon. Sure it might be considered as going too far by many people, but I loved it!
2 – Lamp
If I was sat at a judging panel for lamps I would make this one the greatest ever made! Of course, it is the nerd inside me that would love this, but I also think that it does make for one amazing floor lamp none the less. Sadly it is just a concept idea at the moment, but I think it has the real potential of becoming a real item very, very soon.
1 – Coffee Table
As far as Star Trek furniture ideas go this is, without doubt, the best thing I have ever seen. Yes I know it is handmade and we can’t really buy them, yes I know it would be next to imposable to make my own, but the World of Star Trek was about the power of dreams and wishing it was real, and that is how I feel about this coffee table.
