Exotic car geeks often find their passion spilling into other parts of their lives, especially if their passion is Mr. Pibb, because those things never have cup holders. Spilling passion into incredible furniture, the guys behind Spirit of 427 Furniture.
From a pair of Polish designers, all of 427's pad pimpage's inspired by their mutual obsession with the classic AC Cobra 427, replicating portions of the whip using "pure aluminum, the best paint, and exactly the same leather that is used by Bentley and Ferrari", which should feel right at home beneath your Rolls. The breakdown:
Sofa: Replacing the front hood with leather cushions, this loveseat-sized job sits a few inches off the ground, rocks a sweet two-section grill, and features 8in operational headlights built into the armrests, natural, as couches frequently host things that're lit up.
Coffee Table: Set on two shined-up cylinder heads, this soft-edged tapered rectangle is built using a section of the silver racing-striped hood, complete with a raised air intake, which will be grateful it no longer functions when you put your feet up.
Standing Lamp: Modeled after its long exhaust, this stainless steel deal sits on a 4-pronged stand and glows from the the nickel-sized holes punched all over its body, though if you're really looking for something with that treatment, it's probably cheaper to buy "Hurricane" Peter McNeeley.
If their current crop doesn't quite fit your tastes, they'll put together something fully custom, useful if owning the car itself is pure Fanta-sy.
