Weird: The Simpsons as chairs
Bart, Lisa, Marge and Homer. Bags not sitting on Lisa!

Have you ever wondered what The Simpson family would look like if they were chairs?

Neither have we. But somebody did!

Bangkok-based designers 56th Studio have released these cool Simpsons-inspired chairs as part of their "Caricature as furniture" collection.

Designer Saran Yen says, "Humor and the foolishness of pop culture seem to be a perfect subject to communicate.

"We want to produce objects of affection that people 'get'."

We're not sure we get it, but that's not to say we wouldn't trade them for our boring office chairs at The FIX office (bags not sitting on the spikey Lisa chair).

The designers also take special requests. "One of our clients from NYC is asking us to design a caricature chair of his grandma as a present for her 80th birthday," says Saran.

Who would you model a chair after if you had money to burn on weird custom-made furniture?
