5 Decor Pieces & Projects Inspired by Tetris

I've played it. You've played it. Everyone we know has played it. Tetris: it's the greatest video game of all time...a game which has inspired numerous home and decorative goods that can fit into any home decor.

Each of these products offers a subtle nod to the familiar shapes of Tetris blocks, without screaming out cheesy '80s game nostalgia. Trading in the game's signature cyan and orange falling block pieces for real world wood and concrete, these decorative examples transform everyone's favorite childhood puzzle into grown-up accessories for walls, tables and sofas.

  1. Tvilum Stewart Bookcase: A short narrow console perfect for the living room with cubbies that shout out to familiar Tetris shapes. ($279.99)
  2. Throw Pillow: The pattern on this felted wool pillow from Etsy seller plytextiles uses the "T"-shape from tetris to create a tribal-looking design. ($160)
  3. Tetris Tiles: Turn a bathroom remodel into a puzzle with Tetris Tiles, available in tons of different colors.
  4. Concrete Tiles: For an earthy look, opt for these concrete backsplash tiles from Etsy seller fmcdesign. ($35/sq.ft.)
  5. Tetris Mirror: A basic acrylic mirror gets 'broken' into 13 pieces for a waterfall Tetris effect. ($61)
