Coming up into the Bay Area you see these giant alien-like creatures, giant flowers with petals spinning gracefully in the wind, like an army keeping watch over the valley. And you get a sense of the immense power of nature, the presence of something geater than yourself.

Weird bird cage / fish tank combo by Constance Guisset...instead of housing a menagerie of strange animals, I think this would look pretty on a smaller scale hanging by itself, or perhaps as a light fixture?
Robi Renzi (RenziVivian) created this amazing series of patchwork cabinets made of salvaged materials.
J'adore the Melt bookcase by Thomas Sandell, but the OCD in me keeps freaking out over the dust I can imagine lurking behind there.
Rich Brilliant Willing created this table as part of the Clinkers collection for Innermost

Love the brilliant colors in the Stretch Collection chairs by Carnevale Studio

After this experience I have a newfound appreciation for the art of furniture making. It takes an incredible amount of skill and patience to create something that is functional yet well designed and crafted. Those exquisite little details produce a feeling you certainly don't get from mass produced Ikea crap.
And here it is! finally finished and looking hot in my bedroom.. I still haven't sat in it. I just stare at its beauty and think about how well it ties the room together.
