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.

We like the basic boxiness of this coffee table and we think it's aptly named the the Geometric Storage Coffee Table from West Elm. This coffee table measures 46” x 24” x 16”(h) and features two open storage shelves in addition to a central drawer.

What's not to like about a coffee table that gets you off the couch and in shape! We think the new FiTable is just the thing to keep your spirits up and you coffee belly off. FiTable's is very versatile and has four different uses: it's a weight bench, a cardio step, a rolling storage drawer and a coffee table all in one!
It comes fully assembled and includes everything you need to get started: workout DVD, exercise guidebook, resistance band and mat for table top. The FitTable retails for $249 and is available online.

For $79.99 - what's not to like about this rather interesting coffee table from Ikea. The Hemberg Coffee Table features a storage drawer that floats beneath the table’s surface. Perhaps this storage drawer might be perfect for your K-Cups or Coffee Pods? The safety glass on top is designed to withstand a more weight than ordinary glass and perhaps more coffee cups.

Don't get us wrong - we like computers, but we love our coffee computer tables even more. This coffee table is made from an original 26-inch hard drive platter from a 1967 Control Data Corporation 6603 Disk File Controller. The center hub of the platter and the custom-made pedestal are both made from solid aluminum, and the entire platter is covered with a 1/4-inch piece of table glass to protect its surface and of course it's data.
For the tech-heads out there, looking at the original manual (PDF) this drive could store 37,355,520 12-bit words which works out to be about 53 MB of total storage. (37,355,520 * 12 /8 = 56,033,280 bytes /1024 /1024 = 53.4 MB) Given this drive was made in 1967 I was expecting it to be far smaller than that so I’m quite impressed. Of course the entire drive would have probably consisted of at least 6 platters like this one so you can only imagine how big it was when completely assembled.
