Nobo Coffee Table - Heats Up and Looks Cool

nobo-electric-radiator1.jpg

This isn't your father's coffee table. The Nobo has an electric radiator system that gives a feel of an indoor campfire made with ice and fire over a coffee table. The heater includes "Pits" that emits heat to make the room warm and is controlled by an iPod-shaped touch wheel and features a built-in projector that creates an environment by illuminating the glass log with flickering flames that are video projected. At $2800 the Nobo isn't cheap, but considering the elegance your living room may achieve with it, you can certainly go for it if you've got the cash.

Moon Coffee Table Book - A Giant Leap for Your Wallet

moonfirebook1-thumb-550x408-29432.jpg

This reissue of a Norman Mailer tome, Moonfire (the Apollo book to rival all other Apollo books), comes in an aluminum case, sports a quartet Apollo11 lunar lander legs, and has a rumpled up its front cover to resemble the moon's surface. And what else could make it even more amazing? How about a specially-designed Marc Newson case containing an actual lunar rock.

The real price to all of this lunar madness? How about $90,500. There's a cheaper version for $1,500 that just doesn't impress as it's really just mostly well - the book. Only 1969 copies available - so order now! :-)

Foosball Coffee Table - Game Your Coffee

Foosball_Coffee_Table.jpg

Finally a coffee table with a built-in foosball game. Made from solid poplar, the table stands 20" high, allowing you to sit comfortably or kneel while grasping your team's three hand-carved, solid wood control rod handles. The playing field uses offset light and dark hardwood veneers, decorated with the details of a soccer pitch--center circle and spot, half-way line, and penalty spot. A tempered glass top keeps the ball in-play, and of course can support your coffee and magazines while not playing a game. Both ends of the table have solid wood scorekeeping beads and a stainless steel ball return. The legs have built-in levelers to keep the playing field even.

Coffee Table with Fire Pit Makes One Hot Coffee Table

Groundfloor_arrangement-300x214.jpg

The Groundfloor is a coffee table with a built-in fire pit. We're featured a fire pit coffee table before, but we love the split colored design of this table more. We're not sure if you want to use this inside or if you want to use this on your outside covered patio, but whatever you decide this is one hot coffee table.

Car Hood Coffee Tables Joel Hester Style

65-Chevy-Table.jpg

In his Dallas-based Weld House Joel Hester is scrounging the scrap yards of Texas and turning grizzled steel into coffeee tables. We really like them, and have to say the connection to Cars in the above picture seems likely. The cost is going to be in the $800+ range for a coffee table, and the creator Joel Hester has an entire gallery over at Flickr. His web site also lists other furniture made out of cars including armoires, beds, and larger tables.

Peekaboo Clear Coffee Table - Invisible Coffee Drinking Fun

peekabooclear.jpg

Playing peekaboo can be more interesting when adding hot coffee, and an acrylic clear coffee table. This transparent surface floats in the room without taking up permanent visual residency - think invisible coffee table. Thick half-inch molded acrylic is molded to coffee table perfection, but be careful - acrylic scratches so make sure and clean with mild soap and water, and then use a dry soft cloth for finishing.

Microsoft Surface - Single Serve Coffee Table Computing

Microsoft launched the Microsoft Surface just about 2 years ago, but we recently found out these coffee tables of the future are now available. That's right - you can now order via the Microsoft Surface web site a coffee table that we can only imagine costs more than your current one. Not sure how spill proof these coffee tables are, but if we ever get one we think we might put our coffee on the end table instead.
