The iDog is definitely not something you see everyday. It's a wireframe puppy that also doubles as an umbrella or cane storage device -- you can even sit on it if you get tired. Who knew furniture could be this adorable and functional?

The physical appearance of the iDog resembles that of a beagle, and I'm sure dog fans and furniture lovers alike will be lining up to purchase this dogtastic rack.

The iDog is designed by Elda Bellone and you can see equally creative designs on her personal website.
