Explosively Gorgeous Furniture

Jill Harness

Finally you can own furniture that both peace lovers and war mongers can appreciate. Estonian sculptor Mati Karmin creates striking strollers, arm chairs, desks, tables, fireplaces, toilets and more from rusting Soviet mines recovered from the Estonian island of Naissaar, located off of the coast of Finland.

It's not only an eco-friendly way to recycle Cold War objects into useful items that can be incorporated into our daily lives -- the pieces would also make great furniture for an action movie's evil genius.
