The UP Coffee Table Doesn't Go Up

The UP Coffee Table

The UP Coffee Table designed by Christopher Duffy is expensive, £5,800, which is roughly $9,300. It mimics the famous UP balloon house raising idea from the Pixar movie of the same name except the balloons are raising your coffee table. Perhaps this coffee table doesn't come with the same tear us up scene that starts UP.

Lenovo Coffee Table PC

Horizon tabletopPC lenovo

Lenovo - a China-based PC maker has unveiled the IdeaCentre Horizon Table PC. This multi-user, multi-touch, multi-mode consumer device has 27" of screen space, and the table PC, which lies flat, is designed to enable users to make computing a shared experience. Priced at $1699, we expect devices like this to replace your old static coffee table, and transform the coffee table into a board gaming paradise. Who knows if they'll take off, but the price is getting there and the games are already available on tablets like Risk and Monopoly.

iPhone Coffee Table

DIY iPhone Coffee table

Though non-functional the iPhone Coffee table has a sticker surface and plenty of storage underneath. This is a great coffee table to put in your tech lounge at your techie office or perhaps you could make one yourself and live your life in a completely iPhone dominated world. Whatever you decide this one is not for sale, but does inspire.

Bloom Side Coffee Table

 

6a00d8341c5dea53ef017c3302d673970b 800wi

We love this design based on the original bloom design. More of an end table then a coffee table, this end table features rounded corners and the classic bloom surface that begs to be touched. Some people refer to it as the iPod table, but we think more iPhone given the times.The modern top and salvaged cedar base complement each other, and enhance the balance of the space.

Dimensions shown: 16"W x 28"L x 19"H

Engineered Bamboo Coffe Table

Bamboo coffee table original

Coffee tables with four legs are a dime a dozen, but this coffee table with only three could replace the dozen four legged tables we've owned. The three sections that make up the table's frame are assembled from layers of bamboo strips sandwiched together, but only secured at the ends so they can bow out in the middle. The leg lock will puzzle your coffee guests, and also inspire better conversation.

Neo-Deco Multi-Wood Coffee Table

Neo-Deco-Coffee-Table.jpg

Looking like something right out of a sci-fi movie, the Neo-Deco coffee table stands on legs made of five laminations, two thick pieces of curly maple and three thin pieces of wenge. Wow. A clear piece of glass located at the top allows you to see all those piles of magazines you've piled up underneath the top. Priced at $4,600, the Neo-Deco coffee table measures 46 X 26 X 17″ (LWH) in dimensions.

Mike Tyson's Punch Out Coffee Table Book

miketysoncoffeebook.jpg

There's a pretty amazing Kickstarter project based on a video game from our youth. A coffee table book celebrating the 25th Anniversary of Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! is looking for people to back it, and we think our audience can help out.

Sure it's going to cost $125, but you get an "unofficial 240-page encyclopedia on everything there is to know about the classic NES game," says author Daniel Lanciana of Melbourne, Australia. They're currently 50 percent of the way toward a $25,000 goal with 25 days left so you even have time to think about funding it, and we hope you will.

Check out their Kickstarter page for more pictures, and info.

Apple Power Mac G4 Coffee Table

coffeetabl-100001294-large.jpg

When we first saw this coffee table featuring two G4 Power Macs connected with a coil and glass top we got a little tear in our eye. We've been Macbook Pro or Powerbook users for a long time, and the last desktop mac we owned and used at work was indeed a G4. The design of the Power Mac line of computers has always been eye catching, and that's why we think RE:Form Designs has been making a number Power Mac inspired coffee tables. You can also get a G3 version. We'll take the G4 because we loved the smoky grey color of that case over the blue of the G3 case.

Star Wars Millennium Falcon Coffee Table

The guys over in the R-9 Studio are cranking out various sci-fi coffee tables and furniture inspired by George Lucas, Ridley Scott, and others. The one that caught our eye is the Millennium Falcon Coffee table. We love the almost concrete nature of the design along with the soft lines.

Who Wants a Labrador Dog Coffee Table?

labrador_1.jpg

We do. The dog is man's best friend, and we think it could be man's best coffee table too. This shot of a labrador is accurate, because the artist studied two labradors in a therapy pool in order to capture the movement in this coffee table. It's also a perfect size with the at 49 inches high X 36 inches wide.
