It would be hard not to look at this carpet sofa and not think of the Disney movie, 'Aladdin.' After all, it looks as though this carpet has a life of its own. Of course, it it truly did, it probably wouldn't form a couch for the pleasure of his or her master, but fly off into the distance on its own adventure.

Yet it is hard not to be so charmed by the carpet sofa. Designed by Alessandro Isola, a designer hailing from Italy who previously designed a carpet table, the carpet sofa is functional in more ways than one. Since it blends into an actual carpet, its underbelly converts into a useful shelving unit for books and other items.
