Mad Hatter Designs

Did you ever wonder what living in a Disney cartoon would be like?  Well, wonder no longer as I have the answer for you.  KARE has come up with a collection that would make you believe you are Alice herself wandering through a dream wonderland.  I really could go on and on and on about this company because they have so many interesting and wild collections that are just ridiculously fun.  Here are a few pieces from their ‘Wonderland’ line.

This wacky and bright chest of drawers takes an old style commode (perhaps Victorian) and has distorted the lines to accentuate the curves, livened up the finish and creates a piece that I would definitely believe comes from that crazy dream world.  Don’t you just love the addition fluorescent woodland animals?  

This cabinet looks almost typical (if you can ignore the bright violet colour), but when you open it, you know for sure you are no longer in the land of the drab and unexciting because you are hit with an abundance of the brightest lime green interior!  (The purple pig helps too).

Mad Hatter Tea Party Chair
This is not actually an abnormal design these dates.  There are many oversized wingchairs in current collections.  It is the colour that makes this piece so extraordinary.  You can almost see the tea party going on! 

The inspiration for this chair is mighty clear.  The Queen of Hearts is one strong, interesting character, and it comes through in the shape and colour of this chair.  Wild it may be, but intriguing none the less.

This little chest of side drawers actually makes me think it really was designed for the Disney bedroom line.  It looks like a cartoon!  The curvy, warped lines, the fluorescent colour, and its overall presence makes me hope the majority of owners of this piece are 8 years old.

I have to be honest, Wonderland always freaked me out as a kid, and it still does today.  Something about the playing card soldiers, and the dope smoking caterpillar – it’s just WEIRD right?  I don’t know how realistic this line is, you would have to be a certain type of person to enjoy this in your home.  But it’s fun to look at and if you love the dreamy storyline maybe it’s for you.
