Remember that annoying little dude in college who always saved empty liquor bottles from the parties and displayed them in his “trophy case”? No? Okay, well pretend you remember him. That same dude finally found something to do with his trophies. He’s making lamps out of them. And you can buy one. Or many.
Before you bend over for the lawyers and give her half of everything, you should really spend some of that capital. Maybe in the past, a 20-foot long animatronic Triceratops would’ve seemed like a waste of $350K. Not now. This thing’s got built-in digital motion sensors that cause it to move when you walk past. It also packs a thousand-watt speaker to belt out its terrifying, prehistoric skrawk. Seems like a bargain to us.
The musical tinkling of forged steel from Busted Knuckles’ “Wind Chime With Wrenches” will lend a calming sense of the ethereal to your workshop.

Chicago-based designer Greta de Parry calls her creations Design Mullet Objects: pieces like her concrete & steel coleman stools are “a bit of business and a bit of party.” Handmade of steel stock and concrete, de Parry makes these stools in any size you want. Just ask her, but speak up, her hearing is a little jacked from the metal grinders and saws.
Are you the dad of a teenage daughter? If so, order several of these lamps. One for the entryway, maybe a pair for the living room. Hopefully they’ll cause an unsettling, perhaps terrifying effect, on the zit-faced teenage dirtball who’s picking up your little angel for a “movie” date. The AK-47 replica ought to cool his jets.
Bringing the outdoor in just feels good. This touch-sensitive lamp is made from a chunk of real, honest-to-goodness White Birch. Just tap the metal bar on the side to adjust four levels of brightness. Retro styling is complete with an included Edison-style bulb and 6-foot braided-cloth cord.
The look of this fan will blow you right back to the 1940s. An oil-rubbed bronze machine is complimented by walnut-finished wooden legs. It may look old, but it performs: 3-speed adjustments and 50-degree oscillation. It stands 74-inches tall.
After installing this handy hanger/hook on the back of your office door, make a violent smashing sound and come out looking wild-eyed. But don’t say a thing. Let your co-workers discover the axe on their own. In the workplace, being feared is better than being liked.
