Of course when there’s something so whimsical that it inspires people to do the wildest of things (like fly an actual house with helium balloons!), there are also areas where when taken down a notch can be amazing– if not more inspiring.
British designer Christopher Duffy has done just that with his “Up” coffee table, complete with gold balloons harboring the glass top. Duffy plays with the ideas of trompe l’oeil and makes each piece by hand out of toughened Glass, metal resin composite and toughened steel rods. This makes it easy to explain that sales are limited to only 20. It’s a playful piece that would be a conversation starter in any area– and if you’ve got about $9,300.00 and are one of the first in line, you can have your very own!
