Love it or hate it, transforming furniture is a trend that is increasingly difficult to ignore.
While many recent convertible designs are more fun than functional, this particular piece by Alex Suvajac looks dynamic and use-driven as both a side (or end) as well as a coffee table.
As an end table this piece has a flat top surface, recessed storage shelf and magazine nook. As a coffee table, it has a raised and lowered surface as well as a niche for tucking in remote controls and other table-top odds and ends.
In short: each the object is appealing but also designed so that each mode yields only elements that enhance usability and add style. Best of all, it is made out of fast-growing bamboo for maximum sustainability.
