‘Star Wars’ house: Decor from a galaxy far, far away

The Star Wars: The Last Jedi opens in cinemas in Singapore and for fans, there are lots of ways to add a touch of the Galactic Empire or hint of the Force at home.

Here’s a look at some of the best Star Wars homewares money can buy.

The Darth Vader POWERbot vacuum. Picture: Samsung

The bot comes in two models – Darth Vader ($US799) or Stormtrooper ($US599).

The Sith Lord version is more powerful obviously, as it’s wifi enabled, has a remote control and it emits those breathing noises that have terrified so many.

The Stormtrooper POWERbot vacuum. Picture: Samsung

The Stormtrooper model is a bit more upbeat and emits a “let’s go” when it starts cleaning.

Both bots are available through Samsung’s US website. There’s no official word yet on when the bots will be sold to customers in Australia, but as the birthplace of Orson Krennic it surely can’t be that far off.

Few would question the tunes coming from the Death Star speaker system. Picture: thefowndry.com

Use the Empire’s ultimate weapon to turbo blast tunes at your next party, with this spinning orb and Bluetooth speaker system.

The makers of this magnetic device say it offers up to five hours of continuous tunes from its lithium battery – which could be handy for trips to a galaxy far away.

This timber, glass and aluminum desk recreates Han Solo’s darkest hour in stunning, precise detail.

The life-like desk is about 200cm wide and it has a glass cover that sits over poor Han’s face.

Looking to take over the world? This is the desk for you.

Unfortunately for Singaporean fans, it only ships to US territories at the moment.

Sold by: thefowndry.com

Raise a toast to the Galactic Empire. Picture: thefowndry.com

Drink to your favourite Sith Lord with this stylish shot glass.

This fridge is like having your own droid that doubles as a butler and comes with the sounds and movements we all know and love from R2-D2.

For the fan with deep pockets, this Japanese-made, fully operational fridge lets your favourite robot deliver you that cold Coke or beer.

Each fridge is made to order and has its own serial number.

At this stage though, only customers in Japan can order their own R2-D2 fridge.


Death Star(ish) lamp

Cost: $79

Sold by: IKEA

While our good friends at Lucasfilm would like us to point out this isn’t officially licensed Star Wars merchandise, if the Death Star came in lamp form, this is probably what it would look like:

This IKEA pendant lamp looks a lot like the Death Star. Picture: IKEA

Pull the cord on this 35cm lamp to brighten up any room and see the sphere expand.

For softer lighting, keep the sphere together with light sneaking out of the cut-outs.
