This Is The Furniture Your Mother Warned You About: Ted Nemeth Designs (updated).
If a coffee table could kick your ass, Ted Nemeth's could.
His unique furniture is comprised of fine leathers, reptile skins, carved woods and such unexpected touches like brass knuckles and body jewelry. The craftsmanship and attention to detail is obvious, but unexpected touches like the words "hell bent", "come sin with me", "pay up sucker", "hustler" or even "fuck off" put his pieces into a category unto itself.

His furniture has the edgy expected imagery of Brooklyn, NYC, crowns, maltese crosses, skulls, hearts, pin-up girls, flying eyeballs, dollar signs and tagger type, but combined with his meticulous crafting and luxurious materials, they become gallery like pieces.
When you combine design sensibilities such as a little goth, a little hot rodder, a little graffiti and a little luxe, you get Ted Nemeth's Furniture With A Bad Attitude. All prices are available upon request.
