Now that we've seen enough engine block coffee tables to say that this trend is heading for the mainstream area, the time has come to focus on a different kind of automotive-related furniture.
For now, we want to show you a pair of armchairs that use Porsche's legacy as inspiration. These are hand made chairs built by a man who owns a craft furniture business and wanted to make himself a present, as Redditor ducati324 explains.

While we're not sure about the source of the leather used on these seats, which are said to be "crazy comfortable," the fabric was supplied by Ralph Lauren.

Anybody who's been in a 911, regardless of the generation, knows the seats require a sporty posture, and it's interesting to see the contrast created by these chairs, which invite one to relaxation and other activities of the sort.

As for that fabric, it somehow reminds us of the retro patterns that were brought back to life in the 911 50th Anniversary model.

The guy who built this obviously owns a Porsche, and since we don't like surrounding such stories in an aura of mystery, you'll be able to see the man's car in the gallery below.

Those of you who are unfamiliar with the world of aftermarket Neunelfer deviations should know this 911 uses a Rauh-Welt Begriff kit, one of the most extremes you can find out there.

And we have to admit the image showing both the chairs and their rear-engined, air-cooled inspiration source is just as unapologetic as the Japanese tuner's Porsche attires.

Since we mentioned engine-linked coffee tables in the intro, we'll tell you that we wouldn't mind seeing this pair of seats being assorted with a flat-six table. There's just one problem with such an arrangement: the table would have to sit way behind the seats.
