Struggling to find the military dictator in your life a little something for their birthday? Then may we present you 'The AK47 chair'..
Beauty is, as they say, very much in the eye of beholder and when it comes to taste we're all individuals.
With that in mind Austrian designer Rainer Weber has created one of the most unusual pieces of furniture in the world. A concept he came up with after reading a book about Mikhail Kalashnikov.
Crafted from six used Russian assault rifles; dismantled, chrome-plated, reassembled and coupled with handwoven Venetian fabrics it can be yours for... well, who knows?
If you fancy getting your hands on this lethal chair, which comes accessorised with a cartridge belt and leather lined Russian steel helmet, you'll have to drop him an email.
