I’m a big fan of transformer furniture these days. Any furniture that has fold-out parts and a variety of different configurations is A-okay in my book. This Rotor Coffee Table [2] from Design Within Reach is another in the line of mega-efficient modular tables. It is composed of a stationary top and base and three swively surfaces in-between, which radiate outward 360? to create endless table configurations. In its most compact form, the table is a simple cube that fits neatly into smaller spaces; when the three interior surfaces are expanded outward, the table gains up to five times the surface area. Plus the geometric design is inherently beautiful. It looks good in almost any configuration.

$1700 from Design Within Reach
