Looking more like a polished stone made out of coffee than rock, this coffee table is made out of cork. There's also a lacquered MDF table top, and this coffee table named Lasca also comes in a variety of sizes. You can use it as a work surface, or you can see it as a steadier tray top where you can have a coffee and scone site down talk. Lasca is part of Materia, a collection of cork products curated by ExperimentaDesign with Filipe Alarcao as joint artistic director, made by Amorim and designed by six Portuguese and four international designers.

This coffee table is designed with 3 stools integrated into it making it one of the most space saving coffee table designs we've seen. Also - it just looks right with 4 round shapes integrated into what looks like giant buttons on an arcade machine. The stools would also make great foot rests so we assume they're multi-purpose as well.

This Kress coffee table features a hidden nook covered with see-through glass that helps organize your magazine or other items you don't want on top of the coffee table. It also has a drawer on one side to store those pesky remotes and other stuff like your reading glasses. We love the notched design with slanted upward wing like tips on this coffee table. It's made of wood and of course some veneer.

From the portfolio pages of Swedish design firm Outofstock comes the clever Hues set of nesting, venn diagram-inspired coffee tables. Each is crafted from colored waterjet-cut glass and iron legs, and makes us think of crazy sunglasses from the 70's all merging together on some crazy coffee inspired trip.

Yeah yeah - we get it. The bushel table was based on the idea of a bushel of stick in your hand. If you were to take that bushel of sticks and cut them down on one side a surface would be created. However we feel it really looks like it's made out of pixels or space invaders from the classic arcade game. We do like how the holes can be used for potted plants and stuff, but for us it's just total arcade nostalgia.

A vintage industrial factory cart fully restored and offered as a coffee table? We'll take one. This beautiful cart measures 48L x 27W x 16T, and is a vintage work of art. The coffee table is carefully refinished; the oak body sanded, smoothed and sealed in a thick matte urethane, the ironwork polished and waxed. The faded logo "LINEBERRY, N. WILKESBORO, N.C." is preserved on both sides of the cart/coffee table. It will cost you $525.00 to get it home, and into your single serve coffee lifestyle.

The Nova Black Hole Illuminated Coffee Table makes your coffee feel when placed on the top as if it's being consumed by a giant black hole, and due to the effect of the gravity well near the black hole - time slows down as well making conversations last longer. This coffee table is a Jon Gilmore design with a special aluminum base resembling a spaceship, and the interior space has 5- white LED lights, and features a glass top.

Mark M from Australia made this Playstation Coffee Table for his year 12 major work as an Industrial Technology project. It has been made plywood, MDF, and veneer on veneer, and we think looks amazing. Too bad this coffee table won't be made for consumer consumption, but maybe Mark M will invite us over for a night of gaming.

Designer Ben Gruen is bringing back the Atari pixelated hits to your coffee table, and we're psyched. The pixelated coffee table is for us a killer design wrapped in the nostalgia of our early gaming days. We'd like to see it in a variety of colors for the younger ones in our lives, but the brown and black versions are excellent as well.

This coffee table looks like it's straight out of an X-Men movie, and more importantly that it belongs in Magneto's lair given the floating cubes. The Float coffee table is made of 64 cubes strung together with wire, but mostly held in place by magnetic force. The cubes appear as though they are levitating, or if you have superhuman magnetic powers most likely you are keeping the table together with your mind.
