The Coffee Table by Rlos Design, a design firm based in Paris, France, and founded by Romain Duclos, looks as though it was inspired by a butterfly origami creation. The base of the table has a paper-like quality that, if it wasn't put into a living room context, could have led many to mistake it for a piece of dioramic furniture. Instead, the base is made out of folded sheets of metal rather than paper.

Topped with a round slab of glass, the Coffee Table by Rlos Design may have a funky silhouette, but its clean-lines ground it. The two-toned metal material adds a nice detail as well. A treat for the eyes, the multi-faceted nature of the coffee table gives it a sculptural element that would be appreciated in many modern homes.
