This 7-piece 8-bit furniture set includes two cartridge end tables, a Nintendo Entertainment System coffee table, two controller coasters and two wooden NES wall art pieces, in other words, everything you need for drinking your coffee in a geeky environment..I understand that people can obsess about the video game consoles they used during their childhood, but creating coffee tables based on them seems to be a trend lately. Not long ago I wrote about an NES controller coffee table made from various types of exotic wood and now this 8-bit furniture set surfaces.
The people from Pixel Art Studios are the ones behind these geeky pieces of furniture. Admittedly, there comes a time when manufacturing common furniture isn’t satisfying anymore, especially if this is done by persons marked by NES memories.
While this set is not made from exotic woods, people are given the freedom to choose the type of wood that will be used. The options include cherry tree, maple and oak. To increase the level of customization, the creators will provide the cartridge end-tables with the games of choice.
Here are some details provided by the creators of the 8-bit furniture set on their website: “My new 8 bit furniture line is almost ready. This living room set is ready to wire : NES coffee table with 2 outlets and 2 USB ports for the controller slots, 2 huge game cartridge end tables(pick which games you want your end tables to be based on), and 2 giant NES controller coasters (or server trays) are available. You will be able to play all the favorite 8 and 16 bit games you have stuffed in your garage with systems mounted inside this table. Play all NES and SNES games. Stay tuned for more pics. Pre-order now and pay a flat $1200.00 If you make all your shipping arrangements yourself. I have 6 sets available for pre-order, otherwise its 1450.00 with shipping I will throw in two 18? x 18? wall art characters – your choice – if you order the furniture set!”
The pricing scheme is a bit confusing, as the furniture set costs $1350 on Etsy, with shipping included. Given the dimensions of this set, it is obvious that only Americans can get their hands on these geeky pieces of furniture. Whether the price is correct or not should be decided by each customer on his own.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=53qAwWvOLik]
