Beyond the Car Bed: Formula One Inspired Furniture

Beyond the Car Bed: Formula One Inspired Furniture

When you think of race car inspired furniture you're thinking Ricky Stratton's race car bed, right? (For you youngsters, that's a reference to the 1980s show Silver Spoons. Look it up.) There's more to auto-inspired interiors than kids' car beds…

This past weekend Singapore hosted the annual Formula One (F1) race, the only one of its kind held at night. The impressive speed and deafening noise roared through the heart of Singapore in front of over 80,000 fans and the city came alive with parties and festivities. Even for non-fans the race is pretty darn impressive.

Here is a bit of race car inspiration, just in case you feel you haven't outgrown the fascination with speed and impeccable design.
