Is Dino décor now the last word in home furnishings? Themed furniture company Regal Robot definitely thinks so. The company recently launched a new product – a waste paper basket hidden inside a dinosaur foot. That’s right, the simple black bin is concealed inside a giant reptilian foot which was inspired by a Tyrannosaurus Rex foot. As a person with good taste, I am mortified; but as a Jurassic Park fan, I’m ever-so-slightly intrigued…
This isn’t an attractive piece of home décor by any means, but there’s no denying that it would look cool next to a fossil collection or in a themed game room. It’s not super functional, given that it takes up a lot of space but doesn’t hold very much waste at all, but the creators promise some versatility – you can repurpose it as an umbrella or cane holder or even a planter.
Priced at $649, this T-rex trash can may cause you to raise your eyebrows, but it doesn’t even make it to our top three list of crazy trashcans. Kim Kardashian earned the side-eye earlier this year with her snapchat of these Louis Vuitton bins; Bottega Veneta’s $1000 nappa leather bins are next; and rounding up the trip are these couture takes on Vipp bins with a mind boggling price range of $4,500 to $6,450.
