Ferrari Coffee Table

Good coffee tables are nice, sure, but Ferraris are a little better.

Odd then that a designer has created this item of furniture by encasing a real £260,000 supercar in a table.

Charly Molinelli, from Corsica, was approached by a customer who wanted a talking point for her living room.

And here's the reveal. Luckily, he had a friend who worked at a salvage yard that was crushing a Ferrari so, knowing that the client was a motor sports fan, he hit on the idea of encasing the dream car.

The 27-year-old explains: "The project came at the request from a customer who wanted a coffee table sofa to work as both a practical piece of furniture and an artistic statement.

"The idea of using the Ferrari came very naturally, as my client was very sensitive to everything related to the world of motor and luxury."

The finished work took two months, with Charly using other recycled materials to complete it.

He says: "At first, I turned to several professionals before conception, to ask their points of views. Finally I decided to build it myself with recovered materials, including various woods, cement, paint and varnish to stay in the idea of 'Upcycling.'"

Charly says the price the client paid is confidential.
