Car based home decorations and furniture

Every car enthusiast or petrol head would have some form of home decoration that is based on cars. It can be a die-cast model, poster/framed pictures or even custom made furniture made from car parts. Nowadays, these items are readily available off the shelf and I found two sets of items which I believe that every car enthusiast would want one in their home.

Firstly, the retro looking chairs you see above are made by a company known as Racing and Emotion Design. The company was founded by renowned French designers Jannarelly and Fraylon. Jannarelly and Fraylon wanted to design a product that allowed enthusiasts to express their love of beautiful cars in their homes or offices.

The company has taken these 1960s egg shaped chairs and painted them in various legendary racing liveries such as the Gulf livery, Lotus F1 John Player Special livery (my favourite) and etc. There are over 20 designs to choose from and they would be ideal for office spaces and at a corner in your living room (for watching F1 or other racing events on TV). Pricing for these unique chairs start from 2400.

Next up are the movie posters you see here. The posters are offered by an online company, MovieCarPosters.com and they are not your typical movie posters. Why would I say that? Just take a look at the poster above. Most of us would know that it is the Mystery Machine from the Scooby Doo cartoon series. But if you are not familiar with it, you just would not know. There are no direct indications on the poster to tell someone from which show it came from.

These posters are artistically done in a way to represent iconic vehicles from not only movies and TV but even from video games. Most of them feature cars but that are other vehicles too; such as the Halo Warthog, the X-Wing fighter jet from Star Wars and even a Vespa scooter from FLCL (a Japanese anime series). Currently, there are over 50 posters to choose from and the artist welcomes any suggestions for future designs.
