Made by Newhaven-based designer Marc Fish, the Nautilus II Table is without doubt one of most beautiful and amazing coffee tables I’ve seen to date. A statement piece inspired by the marine life, Nautilus II table combines inventive construction techniques and CAD to offer an organic-inspired furniture design. The inviting table features 4000 individual pieces of walnut and sycamore veneer in its complex construction. The use of golden ratio, aka the divine proportion, helped achieve the stunning design that resembles the shape of a seashell. The texture of the Nautilus II imitates the shell’s exterior that has been crafted by hand carving the fluted growth patterns.
Here is yet another coffee table design that will surely become the focal point of your room and start conversations. Designed by Boris Ignatov, the Orri coffee table takes inspiration from the lightness and classiness of origami. The Orri combines the coffee table and the newspaper rack functionality into one stylish unit. The minimalist and multipurpose design of the Orri coffee table lets you serve coffee to your guests in a stylish way while holding your media simultaneously. The space within the table forms V-shaped pockets to hold newspapers, magazines and other printed stuff.
The latest addition to the ever-growing family of the most beautiful and functional coffee tables is the Equilibrist multipurpose coffee table. Designed by Amir Rahbar, the innovative coffee table gives an illusion of equilibrium with very few points of support, as seen with an acrobat in the circus who performs stunning balancing feats. The Equilibrist coffee table stands on one foot instead of four that are normally required for the support. The same has been accomplished by recessing the support to a concentric mirror polished cylinder inside the body of the table. This technique creates an illusion as if the coffee table is resting on one point of contact.

Designed by Jasna Mujkic for Rukotvorine, the Umbra coffee table is the winner of Interior Innovation Award 2012, one of the most prominent awards of the furnishing sector launched in 2002 by IMM Cologne. Made from small pieces of walnut wood, the Umbra table is an upshot of designer’s love with the Penrose tiling. The tabletop has been made by joining small Penrose Prototiles, which are christened after renowned British mathematician Sir Roger Penrose who discovered it in the ‘70s. The structural pattern of the Umbra coffee table makes the top appear to be flowing like a river. The image looks like the scattered shade of a tree. The walnut wood used to make the table comes from the leftover during furniture production. The best part about the Umbra is that it’s easy to dismantle for transportation.
