13 Fun Pieces of Classic Video Game Home Decor

Do you have a soft spot for video games that were released before the new millennium started? Do you want to adorn your house with images from your favorite classic games? Then keep reading because we have rounded up some of the coolest and cutest furniture, lighting and more all based on 8- and 16-bit classics.

Stackable Tetris Lamp

If just seeing the oddly shaped bricks from Tetris makes you start humming the theme song, then you should most certainly head over to Think Geek where you can turn your love of the game into a convenient desk lamp. Stack the bricks and they immediately light up. Disassemble them and they power down. And, unlike the blocks in the game, getting a full line won't make parts of your lamp disappear.

Custom Tetris Bookshelves

When having Tetris light up your life isn't enough, why not try stacking in some knowledge? These cool Tetris bookshelves are seriously impressive and thanks to Instructables user Hicks Custom Furniture, you can even make them yourself.

Tetris Tiles

Of course, if you really want to celebrate the glorious stacking game that is Tetris, you should go for Tetris Tiles, which allow you to fill your counters, floors and backdrops with perfectly interlocking shapes. You can install each one individually for a maddening Tetris Tile challenge just like the game or you can buy the pre-arranged Tetris mosaics for a more simple installation.

The PacM Chair

Arcade-lovers everywhere know the iconic yellow shape that is Pac-Man and now you can bring him home to swallow you whole with this comfy and cool PacM chair by Jose Jorge Hinojosa.

Ghostchaser Shades

Share your love of the gaming through all eras with this awesome window shade inspired by Pac-Man and adorned with all kinds of famous console controllers.

Bubble Bobble

While the adorable dinos from Bubble Bobble may never have become such classic arcade icons as Pac-Man and Mario, those with a soft spot for the game will easily fall in love with this great rug by Harmonden.

Black Mage Rug

If you've been playing Final Fantasy before the sequel numbers hit the double digits, then you'll certainly recognize this adorable Black Mage character. Now you can even bring him into your home thanks to Harmonden's great rug-making skills.

Zelda Triforce Lamp

Those who know that it's dangerous to go alone, should be sure to this lamp by The Back Pack Shoppe. With both the Trifoce image on the front and the Hyrule Crest shinning from the side, it's a perfect way to show that your heart continues to burn for Princess Zelda's affections.

Mario Wall Decals

Ever wished you lived in Mario's side-scrolling world? Then you'll love these wall decals that bring that world to life right before your eyes. Jumping on platforms is not advised though.

Mario Storage Spaces

If you need a little more function in your decor, then you can always try to mimick what Rob O'Brien did with his kids room. Instead of just serving as simple wall decorations, these 3D enhancements offer storage, seating and a pleasant way to hide an unattractive radiator.

Mario Match Prints

Whether you had the skills to always properly align the bonus match game in Mario or not, these great prints by James Bit will remind you of the good old days where pushing "A" at precisely the perfect time was one of the most important things you would do all day.

8-Bit Fireplace

Here's another clever design from James Bit, this one turning your unused fireplace into a cozy geeky decoration.

NES Controller Coffee Table

Any gamer knows the controls are just as critical in playing a game as the program itself. For those that long for the simple pleasures of the NES, this table by Bohmenian Workbench is the perfect way to celebrate the old school.
