Renewable timber called Rubberwood? Yep. This coffee is only milled from rubber trees that have stopped producing latex. I have to say I never thought of what happened to an old Rubberwood tree - now I know.

We search and search every week trying to find the best coffee tables - and like last week - sometimes we come up empty handed. But this week? WOW. Instead of the old square - let me put my feet up coffee tables we usually find, I've got a gem. This coffee table from 45 Degrees Design has a 1/8" thick teak veneer for the top and solid mahogany legs attached by loose tenons (okay - no idea what tenons are). Hey - we just like it.

We love coffee tables and admit that in the past we may have been won over by other fish tank coffee tables but this one is it! The Clear-Seal coffee table aquarium comes with a toughened glass top that has polished rounded edges. It has either a reproduction or mirror corner section that covers the filter and lighting system. Best of all it has all the ammenities to get rid of that filter noise some fish tank coffee tables have!
You may also be interested in this very cool Octagonal Coffee Table Fish Tank. Resting on a black acrylic pedestal, each table aquarium is illuminated from below a bed of blue glass gravel. Complete with pump, lighting, decorative plants, and two-stage submersible filter pump. A solid top completes the system designed to provide years of enjoyment. Shaped to fit your interior placement in octagon style. This aquarium is an innovative art-in-motion aquatic habitat. Model 680 readiy creates a relaxed atmosphere while serving as a designer coffee table. Viewed from all sides, this luxury table is illuminated from beneath a bed of blue glass gravel. The AquaTable coffee table aquarium is ideal for any living room, office, or bedroom setting.

I can see myself flying on this table after consuming one too many Sumatra filled cups of coffee in the morning! Made of solid cast aluminum with a starburst base, the tempered glass on this coffee table is made to withstand the most grueling boggle tournaments.

I love a unique, translucent coffee table made out of aluminum. The glass may or may not be included on this aluminum wonder, but I think the ultra-futuristic styling is. You can also get this baby custom sized to fit your coffee needs.

They say it's cheesy - I say it's a work of coffee table art! Anything with ground effects lighting for your living room has to be COOL!!!! :-)
"Patriotism might be the last refuge of the scoundrel, and all that, but that doesnâ€™t mean we canâ€™t appreciate a good flag especially when it is as iconic, and indeed retrodelic, as our very own Union Jack. Not entirely sure we want one taking pride of place in our living room, but if you do fancy adding the red, white and blue to your lounge, obviously in a mod-esque ironic, kitsch kinda way, The Paramount Zone has this wonderfully cheesy Union Jack illuminated coffee"

So square...so Alan? Oh well - I'm sure it's named after the designer or something. :-)
"A square coffee table with a substantial presence. Design highlights include the chunky Parsons base and formed brass tabletop with a hand-applied, antiqued patina."
