This creative and whimsical coffee table design appears as though it's being supported by multiple floating balloons.

The 'Up Balloon Coffee Table' is a round version of a previous square design that is new to 2015. The floating balloon design was conceived by illusionist Christopher Duffy, and plays with the idea of both buoyancy and levitation. Although it may appear as if the glass tabletop is being supported by a series of balloons, in reality, the coffee table base is constructed from a metal composite and toughened steel rods painted to look like rubber balloons and pooling strings.

This latest release will be limited to only 25 editions, making this unique table concept an item collectors will definitely want to move fast on before it floats away for good.
