When it’s time to decorate your space, you already know that Wayfair’s got just what you need. But the home decor hub has more than just the hum-drum, as one Twitter user discovered when they stumbled upon one of the retailer’s wildest homeware pieces.

Atlanta resident @allamaraine4 recently found Design Tuscano’s Giant King Crab Sculptural Lounge Chair on the site. And yes, just as its name details, it really is a chair in the shape of a giant king crab. Sharing photos of the crustacean-shaped chair, @allamaraine4 wrote that they were “Imagining what my life would be like if I owned this.”

Naturally, the tweet went viral, with thousands of fellow Twitter users liking, retweeting, and replying with their thoughts on the unique chair. One person said “this is what living in Maryland feels like,” while another joked “living in Maine be like…” Others joked that it’s the perfect chair for Cancer signs, and yet another said: “Welcome to my home! Please come in! Pull up a crab and have a seat!

If a crab chair is exactly what you’ve been looking for, you’re going to have to (ahem) shell out a pretty penny. While it is on sale for 21 percent off right now, the sale price is $1,083, with a normal retail price of $1,366.86.

Still, it might be worth the investment. The hand-painted chair includes a pincher, claws, and eight wide-set legs, with a deep seat for comfy lounging. Cast in fiberglass-reinforced resin, it’s truly a statement seat that you simply won’t spot in anyone else’s home.

It also has across-the-board five star reviews from three buyers. “This is a functional sculpture that is the highlight of our entire house. It is well worth the price and was so well packaged during shipping that it remained flawless,” wrote one reviewer. “I absolutely Love It,” wrote another. “The quality is excellent, and the attention to detail is amazing! It is quite the conversation piece and I am considering ordering another one.” A pediatrician even bought it for their office, writing that it’s “Easy to clean. Kids will love it.”

If you’re ready to hit “add to cart,” you won’t want to move at a snail’s pace, as Wayfair only has two of the chairs left in stock. But if the chair is slightly out of your budget, don’t fret. You can also score the Colossal Crustacean Grand-Scale King Crab Statue for just $427.50.
