Playful UP Balloon Coffee Table By Duffy London
While most people tend to buy pieces of furniture based on size and practicality, there are individuals who are looking to infuse some fun and lighthearted touches to their interior decor going for a playful design for their furniture.
For these kind of people designer Cristopher Duffy of Duffy London has created the UP Balloon Coffee Table, a table that creates the illusion of helium balloons floating and suspending the glass mid-air.
This delightful table is constructed using toughened glass, metal resin composite, and toughened steel rods. Despite having the word “toughened” in the material description, this piece conveys a feeling of weightlessness. The balloons are made with such exacting details as to look real. One can sense the weightlessness inherent to balloons, as well as notice the typical inflated balloon sheen. Even the knots in the end look realistic.
The UP Balloon Coffee Table is limited to the production of 25 with prices starting at around $8,300 US dollars , a pretty hefty price for this unique piece of furniture. The website claims that each table is done by local artisans and craftspeople, and using only ethically sourced materials. And each one is made specifically for the person who ordered it.
