Hollo is a storage unit which simply becomes a ‘blank piece of paper’ for international designers and artists who can have fun in transforming it with their own original graphics.
Ypsilon of Italy is known for their luxurious bathroom furnishings, most of which are chests of drawers and vanities in an ornate style. However, they've just added the Ypsilon POP collection, designed by BB Associati for the brand. The free standing laquered wood chests of drawers feature fun colors and imagery, combining a 70's pop art element with a classic silhouette.
They can even customize them with an image of your own choosing, such as your own dog or face. The two drawer chests are designed for any room in the house and are available in gloss, matte or two color.

If you've ever wanted to live in a Looney Tunes Cartoon or have your children's room resemble a scene from Beauty & The Beast or Alice in Wonderland, then Judson Beaumont's quirky and well-crafted furniture is the thing for you.

With a vivid imagination and the ability to execute and bring the idea to fruition, Judson's company, Straightline Designs (even the name is a jest) has created some of the most fun and unusual dressers, tables and more.

His children's room furniture consists of many different dressers, some clocks, and beds that resemble everything form Cinderella's carriage to a locomotive.
In addition to the fun stuff for the nursery, he creates conceptual furniture filled with wit. My favorite being the "Bad" Table (seen below):

He clearly has an adult sense of humor as well, check out his Custom "munny" (now sold out) for Voltageland, of the evil Charlie Brown:
After successfully designing furniture with a straightforward approach for years, this artist set out to create something unique for friends who were expecting their first child. He wanted his creation to capture the baby's imagination for years to come. Today, like his first kid-inspired piece, Judson designs some of the most offbeat, whimsical furnishings in the world.
Cartoons like Looney Tunes’ Bugs Bunny and Roger Rabbit, along with the work of innovative architect Frank Gehry, inspire his work.
He has also designed several props for movie and commercial sets and finds his greatest joy in designing play areas for children’s hospitals. “Children always get my work. They respond very positively, unlike adults who often say ‘You can’t do that.'”
