The Star Wars furniture of your dreams—if you’re the kind of person to daydream about home decor inspired by Luke, Chewie, and the rest of the motley crew, that is—has just been revealed. A partnership between Disney and Filipino designer Kenneth Cobonpue resulted in this striking portfolio that screams to houseguests that yes, you watch the original trilogy in full at least once a year, and yes, you are willing to defend The Phantom Menace to the death.

“At first, I said, you don’t need me for this because I don’t make replicas of machines and Star Wars fans will only buy something if there’s the face of Darth Vader on it—I don’t do that,” Cobonpue told the Philippine Star about being approached by Disney. “They said, ‘No, no, no. We want you to interpret through the lens of a Filipino designer.'”

So he drew on his childhood memories watching Star Wars in the ’70s to create a collection that doesn’t sacrifice his own style. The five pieces are below, and you can check out detail shots on Cobonpue’s Instagram page.They’re only available in the Philippines, though, so you’ll have to ogle from afar—”for now,” according to Cobonpue, who said interest outside his country is high. Patience you must have.
