Playful Cardboard Cat Sanctuaries by Cacao Furniture

If you’re a cat owner, you’ve probably realized that your furry friend loves a good cardboard box. Although it makes them happy, you probably don’t want empty boxes around your home. Cacao Furniture offers a compromise: cardboard creations that your cat will love and add—not detract—from your decor. They’ve created whimsical carriages, tiny cars, and even a Dr. Who-inspired phone booth, all big enough to fit your fabulous feline. Check out more playful possibilities in their Etsy shop.


The biomechanical styles of Lewis Tardy’s sculptures have evolved throughout a lifetime of experiences, creating life and motion out of static scrap metals.

Born in Kalamazoo Michigan, Tardy spent his youth exploring all things mechanical while also discovering his creative passion. In 1985 while working as an assistant in a sculpture studio, the two interests fused.

The combination of found steel materials coupled with a mixture of commentaries including sexuality, levity, motion, strength and attitude result in this unique expression of Tardy’s vision. Significant inspiration comes from shapes and designs discovered within the found parts and materials, which takes shape in human and animal subjects alike. On many occasions, a single shape or part will inspire and become the building block of a whole Idea.

Lewis Tardy’s sculptures are included in corporate and private collections across many countries of the world.


School is resuming across the country and Dorkly assembled an awesome list of the 20 Best School Supplies for Geeks. Some of our favorite of the bunch are the Know It All Pencil Set from paperpastries, the Doctor Who TARDIS waste bin from Think Geek (just think of how much trash it could hold!), Chemistry Crayon Labels from QueInteresante that identify colors with the names of the chemicals used to make them, the Deletus delete key eraser from Art Lebedev, and a handmade “Hogwarts Letter” Harry Potter pencil case from TobaccoPouch.

All of these things would be be just as much fun to have at work or at home, including this delightful LEGO Lunchbox from Firebox (Buy on Amazon):
