nesent

Over a period of two weeks, Imgur user tylerfulltilt hand-built this spectacular NES-themed entertainment center using some plywood, some clever paintwork, and this lowboard from Overstock which was heavily modified to look like the NES console itself.

We’re properly impressed with tylerfulltilt’s work, though I really want that TV to be bigger and lower. Check out the full gallery detailing the build process after the jump.

How popular are the new (unofficial) Disneyland-themed candles by Anthology Candles? Well, the response has been so overwhelming that their site is down for maintenance and their Etsy store is nothing but rolling tumbleweeds.

Considering the scent profiles, I can see why.

Soarin’ (which is based on Soarin’ Over California) is described as Redwood Trees, Cedar Trees, Salty Ocean Mist, Orange Blossoms.

The Haunted Mansion candle boasts the scents of Musty Carpets, Dusty Furnishings, Graveyard Grasses and Flowers (very subtle jasmine florals).

They also made foodie candles inspired by Disney’s delicious churros, Dole Whip and the Main Street Bakery (Hazelnut coffee and sugar cookies).

Made from US-grown soybeans, the candles are $16 a piece or come in a $45 3-pack. As to when they’ll be available for order, Anthology says they’ll be reopening “3/1/16 – if not sooner” and they’re currently working on shipping out the orders people have already made.

I want them all. Check out more pics below.

Look at this thing. Look at it! Isn’t it amazing? And adorable? This full-size aluminum BB-8 LED floor lamp has three light modes – “cold white, amber and warm white” – and stands 28 1/2 inches tall.

I need about a dozen of them, and so you do. Then again, it’s a tad on the pricey side for home illumination, but it might be worth it to take home the droid who helped track down Luke Skywalker.

kiva

Artist Kiva Ford is a man of both art and science, which come together seamlessly in his amazing glass vessels. In addition to creating custom, hand blown scientific glass for the University of Notre Dame, Ford makes his own creations steeped in his love of mythology, science, and nature.

His work is intricate, delicate, and completely unique; ranging from tiny glass bottles, to jewelry, to glass sculptures within sculptures. It’s almost impossible to believe that these weren’t just zapped into existence like magic.

Check out a video and additional examples of his work below.

New York-based architectural and design firms AJSNY and TO+WN want to give you the opportunity to own a 3D-printed model of the entire island of Manhattan at 1:500 scale that can be used to decorate, your wall, desk or coffee table.

The model comes in the form of over 200 six-inch square tiles that represent a specific part of the city. Using detailed aerial scans, the designers were able to include nearly every building in the city.

daughters-book-themed-bedroom-33__880

Kerry Wright recently decorated her two-year-old daughter’s room, but she didn’t just slap up a coat of paint and call it a day. Wright wanted the room to be a place that would spark her daughter’s imagination and encourage her to read. So she added characters and scenes from over 90 different classic works of fiction, and she left plenty of space on the walls so that her daughter could add additional characters and scenes whenever she’s ready.

dalek

Owen James of Maven Industries usually builds and restores custom motorcycles and cars, but James also has a love for all things Doctor Who.

As such, he created this steel Dalek chimenea. It’s cool looking just as a sculpture, but it’s even more beautiful and eerie when it’s fired up. See that in the images below.

Ex-burninate!

If you don’t think you need a night light, Nari the Narwhal might change your mind.

This adorable Narwhal comes in white, pink, or purple light and has a one hour turn off feature to save energy.

If they ever figure out how to attach this to a scent oil, I’d have them all over the house.

wheel of time bookshelf

A regular bookshelf just won’t do when it comes to the Wheel Of Time series, so Tumblr user hubsy91 made one that spins. Plus, it keeps the books level all the way round.

air bonsai

Plants are a bit boring, aren’t they? They just sit there, photosynthesizing, silently judging our fashion choices. If only there were some way of making them cooler.

Well, it looks like a company in Japan has cracked that nut. They’re trying to raise the funds for Air Bonsai, a range of bonsai trees that float about two centimeters above their magnetic base. Not surprisingly, they immediately blew away their Kickstarter goal.

Prices for these amazing flying bonsai trees start at $200 for the basic kit all the way up to $10,000, though that drop of ten Gs also includes an all-expenses-paid trip to the Air Bonsai Garden Workshop in Japan. Not too shabby!

It’s also important to point out that export restrictions don’t allow for the shipping of plants between countries, so they have secured support from “team members in the United States who will negotiate with regional bonsai and plant makers”.
