If You’re Looking for Funky Custom Furniture, You’ve Landed Here for a Reason

You’ve just saved time. Why? Because here at Funkthishouse I’m on the hunt for wild and funky items to feature so you don’t have to run around the internet like a chicken wearing tap shoes.

Today, you’re in luck, as Lisa Frick’s incredible work qualifies as funky funky funky! The colors and detail bring her pieces to cartoon-life; they’re gorgeous!

It’s not an exaggeration to say I spend many hours scouring the internet to find the funkiest items with pop and punch … and the ones that trigger an initial ‘holy cow’ response, usually find their way here or are shared socially – so be sure to follow, and also check out some of Lisa’s work below.

Funky Has a Wide Range

Funky carries a different meaning for everyone. If your definition of funky means bright colors with an animated feel then you’ll love these. Easily mix these pieces with other themes. In fact, one of the popular themed concepts is Nightmare Before Christmas Decor and these funky custom furniture pieces featured here fit nicely.

The bright colors make all of the pieces suitable for a room where a punch of interest is needed or for a full on themed-out space where artsy-wild-fun leads the way.

How many of us have been at a loss trying to decide how we can make our child’s room unique? It’s sometimes difficult to be brave with color, even when we want to. However, deciding upon a few key funky pieces for a space, makes decorating that space much easier.ย Just choose one piece to get started and take the colors from that piece and use them as the steering wheel for the rest of the room.

Mixing Patterns? Give it to me Quick & Simple!

If you mix patterns together, the biggest thing to remember isย ‘scale’ and to limit the number of different patterns in a room to three to five.

The general rule is, you can mix patterns, just be sure the patterns are not in the same size family. As an example, a larger printed pillow can be mixed with a smaller printed pillow within the same color base for the room. However, break it up with a solid colored pillow if the patterns are too much and too close together. Watch the Featured Video: A quick overview on mixing patterns by Emily Henderson (it’s brief, and helpful).

    How fun! Love the colors, love the patterns, love the funk of the furniture! The video is excellent and really demonstrates well how to mix patterns.

      Susan, thanks for stopping by – Isn’t it though, love her work! What a terrific special gift idea for someone special too

  2. Cynthia says:

    Oh, wow! The featured tables are gorgeous! I’m not even sure which I like best. That round table & chairs would be the perfect addition to a game room. It would make a great card table as well as a very impressive piece(s) of furniture.

    • funkthishouse says:

      Cynthia, thanks for stopping by – totally agree, and I especially love those dressers – so much decorating fun could be had with this much color

    What fun it can be to decorate with bright colors for a cute and funky look, especially in a kid’s room. When my children were small, I took two small 4-drawer dressers I’d found used through ‘thrifting/garage sales’ and painted one blue with green drawers and blue knobs and the other the same way in yellow and orange – one for the son’s room and one for the daughter’s room. And I didn’t even know at the time that I was creating a ‘funky’ look. LOL.

      Pat, thanks as well for stopping by – those furniture pieces must have been really cute, and what a terrific memory too – decorating with color can be a little intimidating, but when done correctly, it can certainly create a one-of-a-kind space can’t it? Yep you were ahead of your time ๐Ÿ™‚ – When I was a young girl, my mother bought real wood doll furniture for me and hand painted it – I had a complete doll house (stove, fridge, cradles all done with the love of my mother’s hands) – it was painted purple, orange and other colors too – I used to play ‘house’ in there with my dolls ALL the time ๐Ÿ™‚ – Mom also hand painted my bedroom furniture, purple, pink and white – it’s no wonder I love color today! Although I’m guilty of being a little traditional in my decorating style sometimes – our master bedroom is getting an over haul soon, so I’m giving thought to the colorful approach I want to take

    This type of funky furniture is all the rage where I live. I’m more traditional, but for a whimsical piece it would be great.

    • funkthishouse says:

      Heather thanks for stopping by as well ๐Ÿ™‚ – have to agree, even adding one whimsical piece can add fun to a space

  5. Brenda Marie says:

    I love those bright colors

  6. Sandy KS says:

    I always thought those funky colored furniture do well in a child’s room.

  7. Margaret says:

    Wow, Barbara, that’s some seriously awesome painted furniture! Thanks for sharing!

  8. Joan Adams says:

    What a fun idea — sounds like something my artistic daughter in law would love to create! Fun fun!
