‘Star Wars Disney’ Releases A Luxury Furniture Collection For The Most Stylish Nerds


The force has been awoken in Star Wars fans everywhere this year. As these Jedi wait for the premiere of the upcoming Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, set to be released in theaters December 20, 2019, there is plenty else to keep them occupied.

On June 24, 2019, Disney opened up the Star Wars-themed section of Disneyland in Anaheim, California and fans went nuts. Within days of the opening, there were reports of people stealing from the park and selling the paraphernalia online for ridiculous prices – and yes, there were people willing to pay.

Well, for Star Wars enthusiasts looking for a more legal way to invest their money in fandom, Disney has partnered Filipino designer Kevin Cobonpue to introduce a high-end Star Wars furniture line that is as stylish as it is nerdy. Cobonpue first launched the collection last fall in the Philippines, but it will now be available at select retailers and showrooms across the U.S. From fuzzy Chewbacca hair footstools to mini lightsaber-wielding Jedi lamps, this furniture is the ultimate fans dream.

Cobonpue initially had some reservations about the project. “At first, I said, you don’t need me fo this because I don’t make replicas of machines, and Star Wars fans will only buy something if there’s the face of Darth Vader on it—I don’t do that,” he told the Philippine Star last October. “They said, ‘No, no, no. We want you to interpret through the lens of a Filipino designer.’”

These upscale designs are dreamy additions to any fans living room but cost a pretty penny with prices that range from $655 to  $4,000

“I wasn’t sure how to marry my design philosophy and language with that of the Star Wars franchise, but I decided to view it simply as a design challenge…I knew I needed to incorporate the various shapes and motifs from the world of Star Wars sufficiently enough to make them recognizable but to also stop short of being too literal. Finding that balance proved to be the project’s biggest challenge for me,” said the designer.
