While it still looks like a toy race track to me, it seems this week’s What the…? was a bit too easy because everyone else guessed correctly. We’ll give it to Kate for not only answering first, but also using the exact words. (That makes two weeks in a row that our first guesser was right.)

Chaise Lounge

This funky-looking wood chaise longue is the signature piece of UK artist Tom Raffield who’s a master at bending wood using steam. For almost all of his furniture and lighting fixtures, Raffield incorporates the low energy method of manipulating wood known as steam bending, ”a traditional process steeped in history and culture.” If you’d like to learn more about his work and his commitment to sustainability, check out his gallery, online store and blog.

And remember, if you see an odd object, send it on in at designhappens@hgtv.com.
