South Korean designer Jinil Park created a set of furniture designed to look like it has just jumped off of a sketchpad. Park's 'Drawing Series' is made up of a chair, an end table and lamps that are all made out of steel wire. The wire gives the furniture its sketchy look, with the designer electing to use wires of varying thicknesses to make each piece look more like a sketch.

The choice to use wires of different sizes is what separates the 'Drawing Series' from the many other wire-frame furnishings out there. In addition to functioning as a work of art, Jinil Park's steel wire furniture is also able to support weight, so you could technically pull up a wire chair and put your feet up on the wire table, although that might not be too comfortable.
