9 Ways To Work Star Wars Into Your Living Room

Jun 23, 2013

Category: Living

If right now your mind is on anything other than guzzling tequila while wearing a Stromtrooper helmet and riding a pony, you’re not fully ready to embrace a weekend with Star Wars Day, the Kentucky Derby, and Cinco de Mayo. And speaking of not embracing Star Wars, what’s up with women? We’re not sure why the fairer sex never truly clamped onto George Lucas’ universe full of spaceships, Jedi knights, and bounty hunters, but, oh… yeah… I guess that’s why. Fret not though; if your living room is sorely lacking the Force, there are several stealthy ways you can work it in and still remain under your lady’s interior design radar. These 9 items are all destined for greatness in your home’s most important room. May the fourth be with you.

Star Wars Vintage Oil Painting

Vintage Star Wars Oil Paintings

Every living room needs art, but that rabbit-eared Return of the Jedi poster will lose you more girls than Randy Jackson’s slang game, dawg. Artist Matt Gunarrsson’s beautiful oil paintings ($1650) of Star Wars figures are worthy of hanging in any room in any galaxy. Greedo over the couch sounds great. [Purchase]

X-Wing Coffee Table

X-Wing Fighter Coffee Table

Every living room needs a coffee table, and “Hey, look honey! Here’s one! OK, so it costs $60,000, but your Coach bags cost like $600, and they can’t even hold coffee!” [Purchase]

Music Machine Watch

The MB&F Music Machine

OK, so the X-Wing coffee table was a tough sell, but you can still vie for your Tie Fighter-shooter and satisfy your woman’s need for delicate things with this beautiful creation by MB&F and Swiss music box maker Reuge. While it’s not modeled after the actual X-Wing, it sure looks enough like one to drool over. Plus it plays six tunes, including the theme from Star Wars and Vader’s Imperial March. [Purchase]

Star Wars Andy Warhol

Warholesque Star Wars Pop Art

Everyone’s heard of Andy Warhol, but not many people can afford to hang something from the legendary abstract artist in their homes. Plus when it’s Campbell’s Soup can vs. Darth Vader, Sith happens every time. [Purchase]

Turn of the Century C-3PO Chewbacca

Turn of the Century Star Wars Prints

As we learned in the films, sometimes you have to disguise your allegiance to the Force. Hanging one of these old time prints of Chancellor Chewie or Baron Von C-3PO by artist Terry Fann will probably do the trick. “That guy? Oh, yeah, that’s my great grandfather; born before razors were invented.” [Purchase]

Star Wars Coasters

Star Wars Glass Coasters

While beer can condensation rings are equal to bedpost notches for some guys, there’s not a woman alive who appreciates such a thing. We know. We asked. Not one. Make your lady happy with these killer Star Wars coasters and just hope she doesn’t mind you admiring R2’s eyes more than hers. [Purchase]

star wars the blueprints

Star Wars: The Blueprints

Every coffee table needs a few fine leather-bound books to adorn it. While Star Wars: The Blueprints features a custom-made cloth case instead of cow skin, it’s still a beautiful tome to display. [Purchase]

Star Wars Travels Posters

Star Wars Travel Posters

Surely Jay-Z scooped up a wicked cool poster from his and Beyonce’s trip to Cuba. One up Hova by displaying some of your favorite (fantasy) destinations like Hoth, Dagobah, and Endor. Ask your lady which is her favorite of the 8 retro travel posters in this set, then plaster the other 7 in your mancave. [Purchase]

star-wars-xbox

Star Wars Xbox 360 Kinect Bundle

Help us Microsoft, you’re our only hope! If your living room decorating freedom is restricted to what goes underneath the TV, this R2-D2 and C-3PO themed console will get the job done—while you look for another girlfriend. [Purchase]
