Little chairs!

My tastes in furniture tend toward the capital-M Modern -- Eames, Breuer, Saarinen, Le Corbusier, Gray, and so on. (Of course, I can't afford much to any of that, but still.) Because of this, I always enjoy looking through catalogs from Design Within Reach, a web- and mail-order company which provide the sort of furniture you would usually only find in designer showrooms.

Every year, DWR holds a contest around the beginning of the new year in which contestants are invited to submit a chair model, made from two champagne bottle cork assemblies (two cages, two corks, and two bottles' worth of foil).

This year's contest has come to an end, and DWR has posted the finalists! They design better chairs with corks than I could with, you know, chair parts and stuff.
