Weird and Whacky Design: Sofa – So Weird?

I came across this er, rather unusual sofa. What WERE they thinking of?

Perhaps this? 

 This is a funerary bed found in the tomb of Tutankhamun.  Carter thought the animal heads were those of lions at first, but later decided that they were cheetahs.  More info HERE

This was the one that caught Carter’s eye when he first looked into the tomb – and no wonder!

  1. Love the cheetah head bed–a reproduction of that would definitely sell!

    • Hheheh! It does have a slight Gothicness to it doesn’t it? perhaps in the right setting…a castle for instance? I’m talking about the first one of course, I agree the Egyptian one is beautiful, I’d certainly buy one if I could afford it!
