A Dozen Home Accessories That Look Like Other Things

Above: a sofa that looks like a huge fat cat. It's not the craziest sofa on view this week, but spectacularly weird it certainly is. (Existential interruption: if you had one, would you feel like a very small person, or would you feel like you owned a very large cat?) Anyway, it happens to be from a spectacular Tumblr called Things That Look Like Other Things, in which author Rob Walker seeks to shed light on just that: "TTLLOT," for the sake of brevity. Walker inspired today's Cool Hunting piece on the looks-can-deceive offerings at yesterday's MoMA Design Store press preview, and he also made possible the photogallery above. Do have a look.
