Star Wars furniture from a galaxy not so far away
Have you ever dreamed about sitting comfortably in your own Star Wars TIE Fighter? Well your time has come as designer Kenneth Cobonpue has released a range of high-end Star Wars furniture in direct collaboration with Disney and Lucasfilm. We’ve got a good feeling about this…
First unveiled last year in Cobonpue’s home country of the Philippines, the Star Wars furniture collection #WovenInTheStars is now available at select retailers across Europe and the US. With a focus on classic Star Wars, the design team led by Creative Director Kenneth Cobonpue came up with three easy armchairs, a rocking stool, and a hanging lamp inspired by iconic characters and elements.
“We wanted to incorporate the essence of each Star Wars character into the designs, while staying true to our aesthetic and process of creating them by hand. We reimagined the Star Wars universe through the lens of the Filipino craftsman and creative. Finding the balance was a bit of a challenge, but it was also a lot of fun.” says Cobonpue.
Cobonpue has run a furniture design practice for two decades and has been named Designer of the Year at the famous Maison & Objet furniture show. He is known for creating handwoven chairs and recliners so it’s an interesting collaboration for a big film franchise such as Star Wars.
The pieces range between $655 for a TIE Fighter Wings end table to more than $4,000 for the Dark Lord’s armchair and can be ordered through one of the distributors listed at KennethCobonpue.com or through Film and Furniture Interior Design service. Contact us for prices and details.

The one red figurine symbolizes a Sith Lord that the Jedi’s are battling against, conveying the message of what can be achieved when people unite and come together.
