Indoor Basketball Court

With the 2015 NBA Playoffs in full swing, there's probably no better place for a basketball fan to be than a giant home, complete with its own indoor court. Located in San Francisco, this 5,000-square-foot, $3.32-million residence was previously an old warehouse. It's now been fitted with heated hardwood floors that were salvaged from Los Angeles airplane hangar. There's also massive 30-foot exposed timber beams as well as white-washed ceilings that surround the multiple skylights running through the property to maintain the airplane hangar feel. Last, but not least, a massive 16x20 foot retractable center skylight ensures you'll be able to get plenty of fresh air for your hoops games.

The design direction of DBC was to make the car look like a muscular athlete wearing a tailor-made suit." Continue reading for more images.

Spider-Man Motorcycle Helmets

Custom made by Dony Custom, these geeky Spider-Man helmets are most certainly DOT-approved lookers, but we don't recommend using them in battle, especially Green Goblin.

Chewbacca Sofa

Chewbacca is one of the best known characters from the Star Wars universe, and if he were a piece of furniture, we'd imagine him looking something like the Long Wool Sofa from New York-based Sentient.

Not only soft to the touch, the sheepskin is extremely cozy as well, and will definitely keep you warm even on the coldest nights. Continue reading for more pictures.
