Playing Minecraft, one thing that I've gained more and more interest in is making furniture that doesn't just look like big chunks of blocks. More realistic looking furniture.

It's not as easy as it sounds.

With the limited non-block resources finding new ways of using the same building parts can be hard.
You have to figure out uses for the stone and wood staircase, the signs, the stone slabs, the fencing and whatever else you might use.

Many of my ideas come from looking at other peoples creations here, other minecraft related sites and on the many youtube channels.

This blog post is to give YOU some of those ideas when you want to make nice furniture for your huts, houses and castles. I don't take credit for most of the following small creations, as many of them or at least the mechanics in building them has been inspired by others and not all are built by me.

I encourage any reader of this post to post something similar to this, showcasing their furniture for others to get inspired and learn from! Also other smaller constructions* that are used for making your building sites look better would be mighty interesting to see! If you do, feel free to post links to your posts in the comment section!

*Note the crane and the water tower lower down, while not exactly furniture they're still a bit too small to be a separate construction

So here are some of my and my friends' furniture solutions:



nxnhpng
Small bed. Made out of: 1 Wool, 2 Slabs and 3-6 Signposts (depending on if it's against a wall or not)

pmabpng
Dining Area for four (As seen in blog cover picture). Main part excluding walls made out of: 2 Fence, 6 slab, 4 staircases (stone), 4 cobblestone blocks.

lmrlcpng
Basic bench. Made from two staircases, preferably of different material to surrounding if you want it to look more free-standing.

nvlzcpng
Basic armchair. Made from: 1 Staircase, 2 signposts.


rbnepng
Counter with barstools. Made from: 4 glass, 4 stone slabs, 2 staircases (Sunken down into floor by covering it with more slabs)

ipwltpng
Sun- / Deckchairs. Each made from: 1 stone slab, 1 stone staircase.

kjjppng
Small sitting area. Made from: 4 staircases, 2 signposts.

zpcipng
Shelving system. Made from: staircases and signposts.

awfppng
Throne type chair. Made from: 4 staircases, 2 wooden blocks.





The following aren't house furniture, but you could say they're furniture for buildings or towns:


qjexpng
Crane. Made from: 14 wood, 6 stone, 13 stone slabs, 9 fencing (for the counterweight part) and as many fences as you need for the rope.

Watertower.

Thank you for reading and looking! Looking forward to seeing your creations and reading your comments soon!

You can make a table with 4 upside-down stairs (each stair has to be built in a corner)

About the throne - isn't it actually two staircases and four wooden blocks behind them? Or did you use two staircases in the back?

Good spotting there. Must've uploaded the wrong picture. The throne looks better IMHO with two staircases in the back however that are just regular blocks in the pic.

I'll try to find it with my dear old fathers ipad the next time I visit the family. A screenshot would be sweet. Could you upload it to an image-host (e.g. tinypic or something) and PM me the link?

Just want to check it out really. As long I get credited I'm happy that people find use for the stuff I do. :)

I take that back. Found a youtube review that showed that part of the app. (LINK)They've pretty much stolen this whole blog post.. I guess the images are copyrighted Mojang in the end, but the text is still mine they've just made some small alterations. It's pretty much the same wording.. And they didn't even ask. Now that pisses me off.. I can't get ahold of the app. Was I at least credited somewhere?
