Finnish design brand Muoto2's 'Ballet Coffee Tables' are an homage to the bodies of ballerinas. Specifically, the tables' legs are designed to look like ballerinas' feet, with slices cut out to create the illusion of standing on one's toes.

Though ballet dancing seems graceful to the point of daintiness, it takes immense strength and flexibility. One of the most commonly remarked upon aspects of ballet dancers' bodies is their feet. Ballerina's often dance on their toes -- a movement known as en pointe. This precarious movement is incredibly difficult to learn and master, and it is an integral part of what makes ballet so impressive.

Muoto2's Ballet Coffee Tables come in a set of two, with one large table and one smaller one of the same shape that can slide underneath the larger.
