3D Printed Wallpaper Exists, & It’s Just As Cool As It Sounds

Have you ever found yourself staring at your walls, thinking: What this room really needs is three-dimensional wallpaper? No? We can’t say it’s been on our minds, either, but that didn’t stop Kyra and Robertson Hartnett, the duo behind design and printing studio twenty2, from creating it.

Working with Pratt Institute’s Sarah Strauss, Kyra and Robertson oversaw the four-year-long development of DEEP, a collection of five unique wallpapers, each of which can be enjoyed with or without 3D glasses. “The response to the collection [which debuted at this year’s International Contemporary Furniture Fair] has been tremendous,” said Kyra. “Designers have been interested in using the 3D wallpapers in everything, from kid’s rooms to boutique hotels.”

Each digitally printed design is made-to-order, using water-based inks; prices range from $58 to $110/yard. Click through to see the designs, and tell us in the comments — could you see 3D wallpaper in your home?

THE HANDLER INTERCHANGEABLE LAWN TOOL SYSTEM

No matter the size of your garage, you’ll end up filling that sucker before you know it. In an effort to conserve space, there’s The Handler.

With The Handler, instead of hanging a plethora of large lawn and garden tools, you can hang one handle and a bunch of small attachable heads. The fiberglass handle features a nylon locking tip which accepts a steel blade shovel, metal garden rake, metal leaf rake, and a 24″ commercial-grade push broom attachment. Even included are wall mounts for each piece so you don’t have to jerry-rig some shoddy storage. Listen, your tools will slowly overtake your garage like a a slow-moving plague, so start being wiser about the pieces you buy. The Handler is a good place to begin.

May the Fourth Be With You: R2-D2 Pinball Machine Coffee Table

If you’re one of those people who laments the lack of a flat space to sit your beer while you’re playing vintage pinball machines… This is probably not what you’re looking for. However, if you want a flat space and simply enjoy pushing buttons and having things go “whirrr!” and “bong!” with flashing lights, look no further.

ALTAR furniture is a company out of Budapest that takes decommissioned pinball machines and gives them new life. In this case, it’s a Star Wars pinball machine from 1991 that’s been gutted and placed inside the frame of a coffee table painted to look like R2-D2.
