Loft beds are typically elevated beds that are paired with a desk underneath. This design could also be a bunk bed but I already designed one for Ghostbusters. Went with the original firehouse toy playset for the look, as I felt it was more colorful and fun.
The garage door is a built-in dresser, and there are more drawers facing the desk too. Originally I wanted to include a functional fire pole to slide down but that might be too difficult to execute (might need to be anchored into the ceiling and floor?).
If you think this is over-the-top you should see this backyard Ghostbusters firehouse that some parents are building for their extremely lucky kid. If you are a parent, backyard, or Ghostbusters fan, you officially suck now and should rethink all of your life choices.
This contraption combines two Allen wrenches, a screwdriver, and a small hammer (for finishing nails) to help assemble IKEA furniture. I like the idea of having a dedicated IKEA-branded tool on hand, for assembling new stuff or dismantling furniture for a move. The hammer can be replaced with a socket wrench system too.
More furniture designed with geeks in mind, this is a simple bed frame that will hold your phone or tablet for you. Let’s be real, 99% of people climb into bed staring at a screen, so why not get the bed to hold it up for you?

Remember those maps that teachers would pull down to cover the chalkboard in class? Exact same deal here. This idea was born because I hate dusting my TV and game consoles, and wanted a fun way to conceal everything when not in use.

I really like those resin coffee tables with the blue water effect, they’re very striking. Thought it would be cool to make a world map version, but given how complicated it would be to make such a thing, I started thinking about a simple way to execute the idea: blue glass.
I’m surprised no one has done this yet, at least from what I could find online. So I thought I’d post a concept or two here.

This could also be a desk (like this) or a conference table (obviously), but the sunken map makes for a good play area, which are common in gaming tables. The map can be a monitor as well, but I much prefer a light box setup.

I attempted this design a year or so ago, but when I finished it the thing looked like a deathtrap so I shelved it, and opted to post this instead. This time I took child safety into consideration (for once) and made a super-simple toy chest that transforms into a playset.
