CARDGive me a deck of cards and before long I will make a house of cards.  Well, maybe not a house exactly, but I have mastered the three-tiered pyramid.  Which may be one of the reasons I fell in love with the Ala Carte “card” table from the Italian design company Seletti.

About Seletti: “Since its establishment in 1964, the company Seletti has always distinguished itself with its tendency for innovative solutions in the area of household products. Due to changes in distribution and growing competitiveness in the market, in the last twenty years the company has carried out a thorough transformation, focusing on design and the strength of Italian creativity. This transformation led to ideas and designs that have carried the brand into its present incarnation: that of a brand stands out for its personality, activity, challenges and constant research.”

This really cool table evokes that basic house of cards template and would make a nice accent in a game room or something.  I can picture getting a few of these and using them as the foundation of a bookshelf.
