Where form meets function

Italian industrial designer Alessandro Isola has created a piece of furniture quite unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. The Stumble Upon is, to all intents and purposes, a rug covered in luxurious, deep-pile faux fur. What makes it different, however, is the conspicuous curled corner that invades the space and doubles as a small coffee table or useful surface. The underside of the rug is finished in either black or highly reflective silver, and by exposing this to the world the rug gains a whole new facet of aesthetic appeal. That’s if you can resist the urge to try and straighten it out, of course.
