While it's hard to imagine who exactly would custom design their home to look like this surreal fever dream of an apartment, Shanghai-based Dariel Studio insists that the so-called Beijing Fantasy "pays homage to the client's eccentric personality" with its "extraordinary decor." Spread out across a maze-like 16,146 square feet, the space opens up onto a lacquered, zebra-striped foyer appointed with metallic dogs statues and a dizzying hall of mirrored walls. Should that not sufficiently scare off guests, or at least throw off their sense of equilibrium, the subsequent open living room—with its animal-shaped furniture, pretend doors leading to nowhere, and giant piano-shaped loft—should probably do the trick.
Really, there doesn't exactly to seem to be a theme that ties all the decor together, except for the fact that it makes even the wackiest stateside homes look tamer than a Pottery Barn catalogue. See every wild room (and exactly one relatively normal bedroom) this way.
