20 Pieces of Furniture Every Geek Will Love!

It’s been a long road to public acceptance of the geek; in the nineteenth century, the term meant ‘fool’, and referred to performers who engaged in bizarre stunts of bravery, like biting the heads of chickens. In time, it became an insult for comic book lovers, film fans, and video gamers. But now geek has been reclaimed as a word of pride, and today, Geek Pride Day, geeks around the world can rejoice in what they love. Here are 20 pieces of furniture we think every geek will love for their homes.

1. Nintendo Controller Coffee Table

The original Nintendo controller is a classic design, and now you can fully appreciate its simple beauty every day with this fully functional (yes that’s right, you can plug it in to your console) coffee table controller.

Scrabble was first released in 1938, and more than half of all British homes have a Scrabble set. So, it’s only fitting that the game is honoured with some specially made sofas and cushions – letting you spell out choice words to brighten up your living room.
