Designed by Glynn Jenkins in 2008, the Mini Cooper Mini Desk is a fantastic example of what can be done to repurpose an automobile if you set your mind to it.

While the desk has no drawers, per se, photos found on another site indicate that storage is available in the trunk and also under the hood. The Mini Desk website is no longer in existence, so I am guessing your chance to own one for these bespoke desks is long gone. Still, it is nice to look at this photos, and to imagine what might have been.

Pink Thing of the Day: Pink Gramophone Lounge Chair

This beautiful, modern flower-shaped lounge chair, Gramophone, is designed by Velichko Velikov, a broad and expressive design in subtle pinks and peaches. Understated with its soft colors, yet glamorous in its nature-inspired style.

Whereas most chairs follow the basic rule of three separate components – seat, backrest and armrests, Gramophone is an all in one piece. Connected to a sturdy chrome spiral base, all three interconnect in a circular, flower petal effect, or, as its name suggests, the speaker of a vintage gramophone.

I swear, not even the $295 price tag will  keep me from eventually procuring this Barbie Wall Mirror for the Chickpad! Available directly from Jonathan Adler stores and on the web!

“Ouch!”

Well, actually this is just the cover for what becomes a pretty swell-looking Shark Attack Bean Bag Chair once filled with 200 litres of beans, which are not included in the sale price of $19.95 plus shipping.

Fender Stratocaster Coffee Table

No living room would be complete without its centerpiece: the coffee table. If only I had room for more cool furniture in my teeny NYC apartment, I would seriously consider giving this rad Fender Strat Coffee Table a place in the Chickpad!
