Here at Single Serve Coffee, we are always looking for the building blocks of a better coffee home and future. We think we've found the essential building blocks of life with the CEO Desk above. Sure, the picture above may not be a coffee table, but we know this desk represents the future of coffee table building.
Here's what the Swedish designers have to say about their creation:
CEO is a desk for a powerful person that reflects on a glimpse of the lost childhood, when life was easier and freer. We want to invite the director to a journey back to a time when life was filled with playfulness, more fun and when he or she was better at showing their feelings. We created the desk bound by the structural laws of LEGO-building bricks, combined this with the grace of the late Rococo furniture style and painted it glossy black to evoke feelings of exclusivity and power. CEO is made up of massive beech, MDF and painted with black enamel paint.

Want to keep time while drinking your cup of single serve coffee? We give you the Time Table Coffee Table. The entire top surface of the Time Table is a digital clock. The glowing digit segments are made of electro-luminescent film, which accounts for the thinness of the structure (6cm). The electronics include an alarm, and a timer to switch the light off at night. Additionally, the light can be turned on, or off anytime without affecting the time.

It's not just about coffee tables. The coffee side table is just as important as the coffee table. Our current living room has 3 such side tables and we love them. This Aunt Bea Side Table from Skram (we are really unsure how the name is Aunt Bea) has a rigid sculptural quality that makes it feel not only hand-crafted, but also artistically rendered (and from the movie the War of the Worlds). Made from natural beech and a mixture of an ebonized base and a rosewood top, the table is finished with hand-rubbed shellac and polyurethane, and it stands 18" x 18" x 18".

What's not to like when your coffee table can hold a snooker game along with a few magazines? Nothing. This is not a dining table, pool table, desk or a game table. But all of these at once. We love the simple idea of making the coffee table fun and engaging instead of just a door mat for you to put things on. Brilliant.

We like a movable coffee stand that can take up as little space as possible. The Skyway clear acrylic table, designed by W. Earle, measures only 20"(h) x 14"(w) x 17"(d), the piece can wrap around the raised edge of a sofa or it can be used sitting next to a chair or couch. Each Skyway table is made to order and quantities are limited.

Coffee tables for any occasion? We do believe in that. Since we routinely find a bunch of coffee tables from all over the Web, it's nice to see one site offer an impressive selection of coffee tables you can buy. Not only does All Coffee Tables have a large selection, but they also have a range of prices. Check it out - we lost over an hour just surfing through all the options.
We quite liked the Coffee Table Ottomans that we'd never even considered...

With a simple geometric form, the Steppe coffee table has two levels of storage. It's made from solid oak and is available in espresso (shown) or natural finishes. The table is square, at 32'' x 32'' x 15''(h), and is exactly square. We think this coffee table works really well in tight corner spaces or as the center of attention.

At $900 bucks the high-end Lublin Lee Table by Mebel is a beautiful, simply-designed piece made of eco-sensitive (FSC Certified) maple and oak. It's a mixture of clear-varnished wood and stainless steel that is sure to make your living room look modern, but with a touch of that classic coffee table feel.

The Zero-In Coffee Table, designed by Barber Osgerby is a futuristic wonder. We love the inverted - yet slightly curved base that reminds us of furniture from ten forward on the Star Trek Enterprise. The base of the table is made of high-gloss molded polyester, angled, and topped off by a panel of glass. The table is both practical in space but not so practical in being able to store anything under it. Oh well - we'll just have to suffer for the sake of looking like we're drinking coffee in the future.

You know you want it. A coffee table that has a PC which includes a TV tuner, a 160GB HDD, a special LCD for displaying the weather, and is liquid cooled to keep things nice and quiet.
There's also WiFi for streaming your media wirelessly and perhaps we could even fire up some eBooks for some coffee table reading.
