Office interior is an homage to Verne's Captain Nemo

Design firm recreates 'Nautilus'-ispired office space for game development firm.

If you've caught the nautical bug but aren't sure you want to live in a pineapple under the sea , consider this. Pirate-friendly game development company Three Rings Design has pimped out its office so that it resembles the interior of the high-seas-steampunk Nautilus submarine from Jules Verne's classic 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. The interior is a mishmash of old maps, eye-catching colors, (fake) wheels and cogs, and Victorian-era styling that's sure to enamor just about anyone who ever thought that Star Trek-inspired interiors just weren't elegant enough. This masterpiece of a makeover was the work of design firm BecauseWeCan, and its pretty darn breathtaking.

And here's the best part. There's also a GIANT SQUID TENTACLE COUCH in the office's game room. I would fork over quite a bit of cash in order to have one of those in front of my TV.
