Decorating with a nature theme is all well and good, but hauling a boulder up three flights of stairs gets old quick. That’s why these tables, inspired by rocks but weighing significantly less, could make so much sense. Well, that, and they look sweet.
The designs are the brainchild of Antoine Morris, a Canadian architect who also designs furniture. There's three pieces in the range: a coffee table, side table, and a cute little wall shelf you could fit maybe three whole books on.
It's not just the nature-derived design that appeals to me: the geometric shapes are so far removed from the gentle curves or 90-degree angles most furniture is composed from, but it still all makes sense. Sadly, Morris is still looking for a manufacturer, so you can't buy them yet. [Antoine Morris via Design Milk]
