Back To The Future Lamp

doc brown helmet bttf lamp design by Dave Delisle davesgeekyideas 2010

Besides the main bulb, there would be LED lights throughout this light fixture, making it look like a fancypants chandelier.

Donkey Kong Shelves

Wouldn’t it be fun to have the girders from Donkey Kong on your wall? They’d make a fine series of shelves if I may say so. I would also include some barrels for plants or to store other items.

It appears a designer named Igor Chak beat me to this idea, so kudos to him (I didn’t find any existing designs when I originally conceived this design).
