The phrase "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" takes on a whole new meaning when it comes to the wacky things people have in their homes. We're talking disco ball toilets, a "haircase" staircase, and an outdoor patio set more suitable for the Flintstones.
Get ready; you won't believe some of these wacky, quirky, and unique items people have found and decorated their homes with. But, hey, as long as they're happy with their statement pieces, we should be too. Right?
Take These Broken Dishes And Make It Art
The person who walked into the store and said, "yes, this is the chandelier I've been searching high and low for" is our new hero. The design is literally a bunch of broken plates, teapots, cups, and silverware that look as though they're being pulled into a force field of light.
Maybe they're just huge sci-fi enthusiasts and wanted something that represented a black hole. Who are we to judge? Here's to hoping they're still happy with their unique light fixture.
The '90s Denim Craze Wasn't Just A Phase For Some People
Bean bag chairs were all the craze in the '80s and '90s, but this takes things a bit too far. Seriously, where does one even buy a denim chair? And not a normal-looking chair made of denim but one that is literally made of four pairs of jeans!
It looks like a DIY project that will come to life the second someone sits on it, closing up like a venus fly trap and transporting the sitter into a spooky real-life version of Goosebumps.
Can't Be A Party Pooper With A Disco Ball Toliet
Obviously, the person who designed this was called a party pooper one too many times during their college years. We mean, what other reason is there to make a toilet that looks more suitable to be hanging over the dance floor of a club?
The only possible answer is that they wanted to take the porcelain throne concept to a whole new level and prove all of the haters wrong. And, hey, at least it's a conversation piece.
The Chair For Evil Masterminds
Those of you who like to pretend they're an evil mastermind in a James Bond film, you're going to want to get in touch with this person to find out where they got a scorpion desk chair. Complete with large pinchers and a tail, this chair is definitely a statement piece in any household.
Seriously, there's no way someone can sit down in this chair and not come up with plans that would make Max Zorin from A View to Kill jealous.
Snakes On A Curtain Rod
Scene: you walk into an Airbnb and see this curtain rod of snake-like vines twirling down to the floor. Do you stay? Do you run? Or are you like us and go seek out the establishment's owner to ask them exactly what on earth they were thinking when it came to interior decorating?
Oh, you felt like sleeping soundly tonight? Well, that's too bad because just outside the bedroom door are things that may or may not turn into 20-foot long boa constrictors when the sun sets.
Butterfly Toilet Seat For Nature Lovers
Resin butterfly artwork, meet toilet seat. And toilet seat, meet the shocked human who undoubtedly walked into this bathroom, not expecting to see dead insects strewn across the seat they're about to use.
Either this person is a huge nature buff, or they should talk to a professional because that is not something most people wish to expect when walking into a restroom. As long as it makes them happy, though, we guess it's okay (not really).
The Haircase...Enough Said
This "haircase" is what nightmares are made of. Imagine, your feet are damp, and you have to climb this thing (yes, thing), only to look like Big Foot by the time you reach the top. Thank you, but looking like Sasquatch isn't on our list of things to do while at home.
So, if the person who owns the haircase would be so kind as to tie all of those locks together, make a weave, and send it off to Rapunzel, we'd be much obliged!
The Floor Is Lava Game Is Intense In This House
Lowkey, no one in this house is ever winning the "floor is lava" game if they have to go to the bathroom. The entire floor is literally the color of molten lava. So, unless they bring a blanket, skateboard, or have a tightrope secured to the walls, they're going to have to hold it until the game is over.
Also, bold move making an entire bathroom red and orange, especially if the sun beats on it throughout the day.
A Throne Fit For A Royal Flush
This is what happens when someone in the house believes they're royalty, and the rest of the household rolls with it. How does this conversation even start? "Hey, dear, can I remodel the bathroom? Well, I mainly want to make the toilet into a sparkling throne outfitted with lion heads on the armrests."
It looks like they got what they wanted, a personalized toilet fit for a royal flush. At least it's a topic of conversation?
This Brings A Whole New Meaning To "Table Legs"
This table is giving off some serious Beetlejuice vibes. Mostly because the old-school-looking pants and shoe combination reminds us of Alec Baldwin's character, and having the legs attached to a tiny side table is just creepy.
Who walks into a thrift store, sees this table, and thinks it's a good addition to the house? Wacky people who enjoy discussion pieces, that's who! The legs look way too realistic for anyone's general well-being, though. We'd be afraid the table would literally walk away one day.
What? You Don't Have Your Piano Hanging Over Your Stove?
Pianos are usually found in foyers, living rooms, music rooms, or even in a basement. If taken care of, the instrument will last quite a while. Even many antiques are still playable!
This person had other ideas, though. Instead of keeping their piano out as a decorative piece, they opted to do something a bit drastic. They somehow mounted their entire piano on the wall above their oven because ventilation units are so last season! We're calling an encore for some more wacky interior designs by this person.
Alexa, Play That "Roses" Song By The Black Eyed Peas
Remember those old luggage bags covered in a rough flower-printed fabric that your grandma most likely used to tote around? Well, meet the grandma who brought that fabric and pattern to a whole new level.
Seriously, though, where does one even find a toilet brush and holder with this specific pattern? Not to mention the toilet seat, which can't be comfortable to sit on! Alexa, tell grandma to stop playing "Roses" by The Black Eyes Peas.
The Chair Force Thanks You For Your Service
Some people hang up their military uniform, others have it folded just so and place it in a picture frame, and then there's this person who wanted to use their uniform to upholster a chair.
It's not creepy, but it's definitely a bizarre piece to have stationed in your living room, especially since it's still boasting the military personnel's medals. And, to answer the question that is probably looming in your mind, yes, that pun was intended.
The Flinstones Called; They Want Their Chairs And Table Back
This is what happens when you go for rose quartz decor for the backyard. Instead of looking like pretty mineral pieces, the table, chairs, and quirky mountain accent look more suitable for the Flintstones house.
Well, that is, if the Flintstones wanted their seating to look like raw stabs of steak. Here's to hoping the person who owns this backyard set doesn't have any vegan or vegetarian friends. Because they're definitely not coming over for a pot luck dinner anytime soon.
Hot Wheels Is Life In This House
While we'd like to say someone left their really cool looking Hot Wheels car in their sibling's Barbie Dream House, we know better. This room divider is actually a $1.5 million Pagani Zonda because who wants to show off and drive that around town when it can be a house ornament?
What do they say to guests? "Please, go wait in the sitting vr-room?" Okay, we take it back; the car inside the house totally makes sense now.
A Christmas Story Leg Lamp, Meet Lady Lamp
Who needs a leg lamp when a sassy woman wearing a lampshade is available? Well, most people don't, but obviously, this person couldn't let a gem like this get away. They just needed it in their living room, lighting the way and scaring anyone who gets up in the middle of the night for a glass of water.
We're going to take a wild guess and say they most likely didn't think about that tiny detail. Here's to hoping no one in the house is prone to heart attacks.
Some People Want To Look Fabulous All The Time
The thing is, when you have a purple tiled floor with matching purple tiled walls and accent cheetah print, there's no other option than some weird and outrageous toilet. Clearly, this person was under the impression that the quirky toilet had to be fabulous though, resulting in a purple pump.
Hey, who says you can't be fabulous while going to the bathroom? But, inquiring minds would like to know what the subtle seat on the heel of the shoe is for.
We Say "Neigh" To This TP Holder
What is it with people making such odd decor decisions in their bathrooms? And what did these poor horses do to deserve such a fate? Holding a roll of toilet paper in your mouth has to be one of the least pleasant ways to spend eternity.
The person who designed this TP holder could at least put blinders on the poor creatures instead of subjecting them to all the things they're forced to be present for.
Shag, Shag, And More Shag
So, the '70s called, and they want their shag carpet and bed skirt back. Really, though, please give it to them because that looks like one of the worst things to walk on after taking a shower.
But with the 1960s hospital-style curtains surrounding the room, we gather the shag is there for a specific reason. In this house, wacky items and crazy-look décor must be the name of the game.
Shrimp Is The Only Acceptable Food Group
We can't really blame this person for their wacky décor. They love shrimp and want anyone who walks into their kitchen to know all of the different ways they like to prepare the seafood.
The stickers seem more suitable for the kitchen in the Bubba Gump restaurants and not really a home kitchen. But, to each their own. And if this person wants crazy looking shrimp, complete with eyes and antennae, on their cabinets, who are we to judge?
A Sink-Tini For Happy Hour Lovers
Hands down, this person probably has the best happy hours out there. What other reason is there to have a crazy looking martini-shaped sink, complete with an olive soap dispenser, on the wet bar?
This person clearly enjoys one drink and wants everyone who comes over to know it. The only thing is this sink isn't exactly what one would call practical. It's probably such a pain to wash dishes that aren't shaped like martini glasses!
This Designer Should Be Fired
This wacky design is a party-goer's worst nightmare. Think about it; you're out with your buddies only to come home after a few beverages.
Then, you walk into the bathroom to get ready for bed, and BAM! you're on the ground because the lights are sideways, the floor is on the wall, the mirror isn't sure what it's doing, and the toothbrush holder is on a wall that should be the floor.
A Tiny Door For The Door
This is one wacky home object we can get behind! What is better for a peephole on a door than a tiny door? It's cute, effective, and makes for a great little accent piece on an otherwise bland white door.
It might be an unpopular opinion, but these little barn doors should be a normal thing when people are redesigning their homes. Kudos to this person; your peephole is hands down the quirkiest and coolest in town.
Gourd Carvings For The Most Extreme Cat Lover
Typically, cat people can be put into one of three categories: the lovers, the enthusiasts, and then the crazy cat people. Yes, it's a bit of a jump from the second to last category, but it makes sense.
People who love or are even enthusiastic about felines don't typically use their autumn gourds to make creepy cat carvings. These things look like something a crazy cat person would have on the mantel above their fireplace, each one representing their own kitties.
A Nest For The Person With Too Much Money
Some people need to stay off Facebook's weird advertisements. It's literally the only place we can imagine someone finding a life-size bird nest with pillow eggs. Because who needs a bed when a nest is readily available, right?
Seriously, though, this wacky thing is what people buy when they have too much money and want to spend it on something, anything, no matter who outrageous. It doesn't even look all that comfortable since the pillows are in the shape of moveable eggs.
We Hope This Is A Dance Floor
Actually, we're kind of digging this one... it's a pretty creative way to display your love of vinyl records. But this leads to a question.
If you love vinyl so much, why are you using it to tile your floor instead of listening to it? We just hope the floor is as smooth as it looks, because it might be a pretty fun place to dance around and pretend the records are playing music.
This Is A No For Us
As if the brownstone mansion with its dark wood wasn't creepy enough, the owner just had to add a giant clown head as a light fixture on the ceiling. We can't imagine why this wacky item was on their list of things to buy.
But here it is, secured to the ceiling with a lone lightbulb coming out of its nose. If this homeowner wasn't a clown at some point in time, we're seriously questioning their sanity.
Leather Kitchen Cabinets Are The New Cherry Wood
Why have cheery wood cabinets in the kitchen when white leather is an option? Seriously, whoever thought white leather was an okay material on anything besides cowboy boots? Even then, it's questionable.
But putting it in a kitchen is a whole new level of not thinking straight. The cabinets probably get grossly sticky when the oven is turned on. Hopefully, they don't have Thanksgiving at their house, or else the cabinetry would start melting off the walls!
The Love Of Window Shopping Is Strong In This House
Really, though, what was going through the architect's head when they made that little side platform? This photo looks like two different areas of the house that were smashed together in some weird photoshop disaster. What was the conversation here?
"Honey, we need to figure out where to put your Great Aunt Gerta's antique dresser that no one wants. Any ideas?" The idea: let's make a platform that looks like a storefront. Only forget about the glass.
Let's Talk About The Elephant In The Room
Before we talk about the actual elephant in the room, can we discuss the need to have a floor-to-ceiling tiled bedroom? Even the bedframe is covered in tile! Maybe it's to give the illusion of an underwater atmosphere for the swimming elephant on the ceiling.
If that's the case, then hats off to the interior decorator for fully committing to the scene, complete with plastic see-through chairs. The thing is, on a level of one to relaxing, this room gets a negative 100.
An Angler Fish To Light Up The Living Room
There's nothing quite like an angler fish in the middle of the living room. Especially if that angler fish just so happens to be hanging from the ceiling and is the main source of light for the room!
This is one of those wacky light fixtures that people see in a thrift store, say "who would buy something like that," and keep walking. Well, here you go, folks, these are the type of people who buy something like that.
Eat Your Cake And Sit On It Too
Unless this person is a baker, we're not sure what kind of interior design statement this person was going for. Is it: "come on in and sit on a slice?" Or how about, "would you like to lounge on some dessert? I promise it's not as messy as it sounds."
Well, hopefully, it's at least comfortable because from over here, the pink frosting doesn't exactly look like the most appetizing fabric to sit on.
This 90s Gummy Bear Blowup Chair
The 90s called, and it wants this red blowup chair back in the tween store Claire's. Seriously, though, this chair is amazing. Not only is it a blowup chair with an approximate lifespan of one weekend, but it's also in the shape of a gummy bear.
If this person is a 90s baby and had any of their elementary school friends over while that chair was in their living room, they'd automatically be the coolest person in the room.
You Can Only Sleep In One Position
Do you sleep in the same position every night? If it’s this specific position, then you may want to buy this bed. It will only work for one person, with a specific height, and one sleeping position. Now that we think about it, maybe it isn’t the most convenient mattress.
This bed looks more like an art project than a usable bed. Why would anyone buy it? You can’t sit on it, and you can only lie on it if you don’t fear falling off.
Retro Is The New Modern
While this mirror and vanity aren't the worst things when it comes to wacky decor, they're definitely from a different time! Honestly, what makes someone go, "huh, I think I want to design my vanity to look like something straight out of Saved by the Bell."
At least it's a statement piece with a cool color. We'd be interested to see what the rest of the room looks like, considering this piece is a bit, how do we say, in your face.
While shopping for a chair, many people search for something that is comfortable. This is not that chair. Rather than a decent seating area, it looks like a trap made by a supervillain.
Perhaps the chair will give people some acupuncture every time they sit down. That would be its only positive use other than an edgy art project. Why do designers even make these kinds of furniture? To never be sold, or to end up on an internet list like this?
This mirror is bringing the song "Bleeding Love" into a whole other level of heartbreak. Personally, we're not sure where we would put this, but obviously, this person wanted it front and center in their living room, considering a TV is in the reflection!
Well, to each their own, we suppose. Maybe they just went through a nasty breakup and want everyone to know that while they look happy on the outside, inside, their heart is bleeding. That's deep.
Enjoy Your Doctor Seuss House
Modern design often includes interesting curved furniture and shelves. But this room went a little overboard. It looks more like someone messed around with Play-Doh, and the architect decided to roll with whatever they made.
It looks like some of the lines are supposed to be shelves, and others are meant to be chairs. But when everything is the same color and design, it’s impossible to tell any feature apart. The room looks like another dimension.
Shark Got Your TP?
This is bringing the phrase "cat got your tongue?" to a whole new level. Now, it's shark got your toilet paper? Or maybe it's hand and not toilet paper. Either way, this person has a sick sense of humor.
Imagine walking into the bathroom in the middle of the night only to accidentally stick your finger in a sharks mouth while you're reaching for some TP. That does not sound like a fun way to be startled awake!
A Couch That Could Eat You
Tiger stripes can be used on couches, bed covers, and pillows. But have you ever heard of a tiger-shaped couch? This couch includes a tiger head and legs as if it’s some weird form of taxidermy.
Imagine walking to the kitchen for water in the middle of the night. Every time you saw the couch in dim light, you would see the shape of a tiger. If your goal is to have a couch scare all of your guests, then you may want to find some taxidermy furniture.
