High Point, North Carolina: Natuzzi Ship Building

Shopping for a sofa? Head for the half-ship-shaped building, christened in 1986 for Italian furniture maker Natuzzi. Not enough boat to satisfy landlocked ship lovers, but supposedly there's a porthole window and a "moat."

Natuzzi Ship Building

Natuzzi showroom is built like a ship (cut in half?). Curved side has a porthole window and even a moat to add to the effect. Right in downtown and not too far from the World's Largest Bureau.

Suggesting the lines of a ship bow. Not enough boat to satisfy landlocked seamen, but the building is unusual.
