The Rug Coffee Table

Arguably topped by a stray banana skin, not much poses such a comical threat as an upturned rug.

One man to see past the faults of this home-dwelling nuisance is designer [Alessandro Isola, whose latest work takes the end of a cumbersome rug and moulds it neatly into a coffee table.

Inspired by those unforgiving bumps of a carpet, the fittingly-named Stumble Upon is a hard-shell hybrid piece designed to be comfortable to walk on, lie on and also store a brew thanks to that flexible top-end. It's a marriage made in home furnishings heaven.

For now, however, being a concept, it's firmly stuck in development hell. But with these neat designs we can't see this being the case for much longer.

In the meantime, here are some equally stunning/odd coffee tables which you definitely can buy
