I have to say that I love this bedside table from Porro Furniture called "Balancing Boxes". It was created by the Swedish design group "Front", whose four members include Anna Lindgren, Katja SÃ¤vstrÃ¶m, Sofia Lagerkvist and Charlotte von der Lancken. The concept of boxes providing storage and acting as a table top surface is an insightful idea. The way the boxes pivot on themselves melds both art and furniture into one statement.

This multi-media table looks very much like a typical coffee table, but upon closer inspection it contains two speakers and a docking station for an iPhone or iPod. The base of the table is a pyramid which is a rather unusual element as a foundational object in home furnishings. This piece was created by Stephane Thivend. Learn more about the product: here.
Thinking about the future makes you wonder about what we have not seen at this point in our lives. Take for example futuristic home furnishings like the Fusion Table by Sony. Here a computer has been grafted into a coffee table creating a high-tech piece of furniture that is eye-catching and dual purpose. Fusion is set to retail for around $3,000. It will be interesting to see how well it is received. Via - Bornrich.

Could the ultimate conference room table be made of Lego blocks? If you think about it, meetings are design to solve the most basic of problems by "building" a solution so perhaps this type of design approach is fitting. If you attend a lot of meetings like me the harsh reality is that they are often not quite so productive. I could at least appreciate the Lego handiwork if it were in the conference room. Via.
