Fun with food is prevalent in many a restaurant’s menu offerings these days. But one other way that commercial establishments can have fun with food is through their furnishings and other decor. For instance, a restaurant combating slow service issues may want to employ these edible bread chairs to keep patrons satisfied while waiting for their meals.

And after a busy day, the facility manager can go home for a good night’s sleep in his or her hamburger shaped bed. This particular piece of furniture now occupies a spot in the Hamburger Museum, a labor of love put together by Harry Sperl, who curates the collection in a section of his home.

Creator Kayla Kromer sold the bed on EBay for a fundraiser in 2009.
