If you want to add a magical touch to your home and make sure nature's good vibes are permanently present in your abode, make sure you get yourself a set of these intricate and beautifully crafted leaf-shaped tables.

Designed using only colors found on an autumn or spring morning, the Morning Glory collection by Brooklyn-based designer Marc Thorpe is inspired by leaves and stems. The new collection of leaf-shaped tables was recently unveiled at Milan Design Week 2014 for the Italian brand Moroso.

Made using powder-coated welded steel rods for the stems, the designer then uses laser cut bent steel plates for the leaves part of the design -- and it looks delightfully authentic.

"The Morning Glory project is a personal story," says Thorpe. "My home garden in Brooklyn is covered in the vine. We live with it everyday. I'm inspired by the world around me and always look for what I like to call the modernism within."
