Brought to you by BootsNGus, these iconic Tupperware bowls that most of us probably grew up with are put to another use - mood lighting.  The Spring FlowersTupperware TupperLIGHT comes as a set of two table lamps and 3 container shades (yellow, dark orange, and bright orange).  Perfect for a kid's night-light or a retro accent lamp.  Lit with a 4 watt night light, these lamps are 19.5" tall.  The designer also has over 300 other interesting re-purposed lighting designs.

Brought to you by ThePopStopsHere, this pet bed is perfect for the pet who's always jumping in your luggage when you're trying to pack.  SnuggyLuggage is made from a (late '40s or early '50s) vintage navy and sienna brown leather suitcase and has been transformed into a "cozy and fashionable pet bed."  The blue and yellow country patterned pillow is removable and machine washable.  

1. From Vintage Oven to Leisure Lounge Chair

Brought to you by WayOutHere, this vintage oven-turned-lounge-chair has unfortunately been sold, but I hope to see more like it show up.  Not only does it look comfortable, it's also incredibly unique and fun.  Designed by a student from the University of Cincinnati, the Amazing Transforming Oven Lounge is versatile too; the bottom drawer slides out to support the oven door which allows you to prop up your feet for comfort.  It can even transform back to it's oven-form when you close everything up.  What's more, it also comes with a functional battery-powered clock to power the original clock interface on the stove!
