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.

How about a stainless steel coffee table to go along with all the stainless steel in your kitchen? With rounded corners and an almost alien feel, we like the modern look of this coffee table designed by Ben Haas for Steelogic.

Low and stylish, we love the minimalist design of the Kyoto 2-Tops Coffee Table. The Kyoto 2-Tops Coffee Table features a unique design with two equal size table tops. Its understated styling makes it suitable for virtually any modern living space.

This clear acrylic wonder is now being produced at Workshopped in Australia. We like the simple curve of the legs and the rather "unsquare" squareness of the top. We could also see this working really well as a giant bookmark for your giant coffee table book.

Imagine having a cup of single serve coffee and staring longingly at your feet while you drink a cup. If you have kids these coffee tables would also be useful to find them when they are hiding about the living room. Whatever the need of a colored glass coffee table you have, these coffee tables are made of natural birch and have five options of colored glass and come with chrome legs.

Two layers of coffee table makes a bi-plane of coffee table madness. This basic, yet elegant coffee table is called the Sax Coffee Table. We like the art deco touch along with the reinforced tempered glass. We also like the two levels of coffee table storage - perfect for catching clutter but still being able to see it.

We often want more media in our coffee table and this little number does TV, Music, Photos, and of course video games. The Stealth coffee table doubles up as a multimedia machine capable of storing and displaying all forms of electronic media. The coffee table is designed for home use or in a corporate reception to deliver media content and features a glass table top.

Cafepods has sent us this gem of a coffee table. The coffee table is made from compressed coffee grounds and sugar resin by Nick Rawcliffe. Its being exhibited in the Scottish Museum in Edinburgh at the Green Design: Creativity with a Conscience exhibition on until 25th June.
We recommend seeing it while you can if you're in Europe. Hmmm...wonder if the sugar resign and coffee make for the first lick-able coffee table? Maybe you can also just take a bite out of it? :-)

This crazy matrix table from British Designer Andrew is constructed with birch plywood, walnut face veneer and glass. With crossing latices we can see getting completely lost in the top of this coffee table and perhaps even putting some things inside the trapped triangle spaces. The designer refers to the "Matrix Table" as a set of interlocking pieces - a simple puzzle. We think it's simply elegant.
