Kress Glass Insert Coffee Table Organizes Magazines

glass_coffee_Table_0611.jpg

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.

Venn Diagram Coffee Tables

500x_hues_tables_4.jpg

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.

The Bushel Table Looks Like it's Made of Pixels

Bushel-Table-2.jpg

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.

Factory Cart Vintage Coffee Table

Factory-Cart-Coffee-Table-1.jpg

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.

Nova Black Hole Illuminated Black Hole Coffee Table

table.jpg

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.

Playstion Controller Coffee Table

Playstion-Controller-Coffee-Table-1.jpg

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.

Pixel Coffee Table Beams In the Blocks

pixel-table1_qqvSC_1822.jpg

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.

Float Coffee Table Perfect for Magneto

magnettable-sg.jpg

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.

It's Coffee Table Friday Component Old PC Style

component-coffee-table-geek-chic-0.jpg

That's right - if you've got loads of old computers sitting around, a glass coffee table, and lights? Well you can build yourself a component PC coffee table. David Maloney created this brilliant coffee-table from the innards of his old machines that he kept around hoping to recycle some day - and recycle he did.


NEWS-34470-1e3ae650d8196a72dd56b4feef8c3bcd.jpg

Maloney explains:

"For years I've been throwing old computer boards into a box in the garage to someday recycle them into some sort of project. It finally popped in my head to create a table with them using some of the black walnut from a tree we cut down a few years ago and had milled in the yard with a portable mill.

"It's basically two tables. One internal table to screw the boards to and another set of wood frames with glass that slide on top of the board table. It's basically a wood diorama. It will be very easy to swap out the computer boards with something else once we get tired of the look of the boards."

We'd like to see of course something along the lines of a recycled set of video screens of different sizes all playing random images. Who knows, but just seeing this makes some ideas of other recycled parts coffee tables.
