Now you can build fully-functioning furniture with these giant LEGO-inspired bricks

I bet your child's room could use a little bit of color. Why not build a study table or a toy chest made of LEGO bricks? Sounds fun, huh? But in reality, creating fully-functioning furniture out of those plastic construction toys can be challenging. The bricks are too small, and sometimes they're a bit annoying to use especially if you're dealing with large-scale creations.

But now thanks to EverBlock, there's no need to tediously stack thousands of bricks together to construct modular furniture. The oversized, LEGO-inspired blocks can be turned into tables, chairs, room dividers, and even shelters, using just a few pieces. Made of polypropylene, EverBlocks are specially designed to be easily stackable, allowing DIYers to build an endless range of furniture options.

"Each module is designed to connect easily with the parts above and below, using a pressure fit which creates a strong link between blocks." says EverBlock. "Anything you've constructed can be taken apart and re-assembled again, and the pieces can be re-used to build other objects, making EverBlock a unique green building method."

The New York-based company currently offers three types of blocks in an array of colors. There's a full-size 12 x 6 inches block, a half-size 6 x 6 inches block, and a 3 x 6 inches quarter-block. Users can also add cap pieces to give a bit of polish to their constructions. You can buy them separately or in bulk, with prices starting around $5 per piece.
