It can be easy to go too far with geek chic decorations. The sheer wealth of artwork, collectibles, accessories, furniture and pretty much anything else you can think of on the market is mind-blowing. So how do we manage to express who we are, without resorting to overkill?
The answer is to subtly accent your living space with items such as the Heroes and Villains cushion.
Not only does this product provide stylish decoration in a genuinely quite classy way, but it also contains a multitude of awesome characters, thereby covering a lot of geek bases. There’s Star Wars, Marvel, DC, Skeletor and Robocop to name a few.
Of course this idea in itself might be too much for many a discerning geek. After all combining Iron Man and Batman on the same soft furnishing is like storing raw chicken next to cooked steak; a recipe for a cross contamination disaster!
But for those that can get on board this is the perfect squishy accompaniment to a grown up geek living room. Oh and in case you are interested, the product is 100% Vegan and fully machine washable; this thing just keeps getting better.
To own a Heroes and Villains cushion of your very own you should head on over to the Firebox website (which has had a recent revamp).
As a final note I have to mention the Green Ranger. You will see him located to the bottom left corner of the cushion. I wouldn’t be any kind of geek ambassador if I wrote an article containing the Green Ranger and didn’t include this incredible song:
This is one of my fellow Cultoid editor James Weller’s favourite songs of all time (genuinely) and as he loves to tell everyone, was produced by none other than Simon Cowell!
So why not whack on the Power Rangers soundtrack as the perfect accompaniment to your new soft furnishing.
