These fun paintbrush coat hooks are the latest work from creative powerhouse Dominic Wilcox who was inspired by discovering solidified paintbrushes he had forgotten to wash. The brushes were made for the Object Abuse exhibition at KK Outlet in London that runs through 25. (thnx, dominic!)
Jakob Hunosøe is a Danish photographer who slightly alters ordinary objects to create these humorous and unexpected images. These are five of my favorite photos from his On Things Ordinary series.
This ball of string wax candle by Gomitolo is priced well out of range for my household, but it sure does look awesome. (via svpply)
These photos have apparently been around for a while, but this is totally new to me. An enterprising group of robotic vacuum cleaner owners have used LEDs affixed to the top of their Roombas to create these amazing long exposure photographs. Check out Roomba art group for more.

When I think of furniture made from books the first word that comes to mind is uncomfortable, however this hefty chair entitled Bench of Thoughts (Banco del Pensamiento) made of recycled books by Alvaro Tamarit actually looks pretty darn comfy. The heft of the chair also matches the price, however this is certainly more of an art piece than something to eat your bagel and coffee in the morning. Check it out over on Saatchi Online.
I’m really enjoying these ceramic street map coasters by industrial designer Anders Hansen. Each coaster is formed from a different area of Oslo including Majorstuen, Parkveien, Sentrum, Kvadraturen, Sentrum Øst and Grünerløkka. Available in his shop for about $15-$22 apiece. (via behance)
