It's Coffee Table Friday Drop Style

Mediante-4.jpg

We love the clean lines of this timeless coffee table. The Drop Coffee Table features a crystal clear glass top, with a hanging frosted glass shelf underneath. The tapered legs help to give you more space, and we really like the slender steel rods that hold the shelf in place.

iPhone Single Serve Coffee Table

iphone-table-200.jpg

Simply the coolest coffee table we've seen, and it was inspired by a previous reader-made iPod coffee table over at iLounge. iLounge readers Tuan Nguyen, Ken Thomas and their associates have created an iPhone coffee table. According to Nguyen, the table is "completely made of corrugate and glued together with white glue," and features removable, usable coasters built-in. Imagine the iPhone coffee table in your living room or den, and then imagine it actually working.

Four-way Pong Coffee Table - Play Your Way to More Caffeine

sparkfuntable.jpg

Witness a coffee table that took over two years to build - witness it! Yes, the Four-Way Pong coffee table is a thing of beauty, and sure to make you feel less boring when you sit down with those other coffee drinkers in your life. Unfortunately, this is a one of a kind piece, one that was a true labor of love, but we like the concept. We can see in the future Microsoft's Surface being used to make one of these in less time than 2 years, and hopefully even more games than just class Pong.

Periodic Coffee Table - Single Serve Coffee Elements

periodic-1.jpg

This might be the most interesting, and potentially dangerous single serve coffee table we've featured. This table contains actual samples of each of the 92 naturally-occurring elements - spooky.

"The remaining radioactive samples are supplied in the form of a small piece of low activity uranium or thorium bearing mineral in which a few atoms of the relevant element will exist."

That's right. Each of the cells actually contains the element itself - except for the elements that exist for only seconds. We can only imagine how much this coffee table would take over the hearts and minds of anyone you have over for a cup of single serve coffee. This table will set you back $8550, and also has a half-life of about 10,000 years.

Rynd Motion Coffee Table - Spin Your Single Serve Coffee

digimarc.ms.jpeg

The Rynd Motion Coffee Table has two oval glass tops that swivel to multiple positions for ease of use, and ease of coffee spinning. A round, stable metal base with two stands support the twin glass pieces.

Why do we love this coffee table? We love the thought of spinning a hot cup of single serve coffee over to our couch mate, and then kicking back to watch a little TV.

Feng Shui Rectangular Coffee Table

fengshui-rectcoffeetableespresso.jpg

The Feng Shui Rectangular Coffee Table works in harmony with a variety of decors, and coffee drinking habits. Beautifully balanced proportions, uncomplicated styling, and neutral lines lend a sense of simplicity to the understated to this coffee table. We're really excited to be able to buy "Feng Shui" in a coffee table, thus fixing our rather un-Feng Shui living room with one simply elegant purchase.

Paper Airplane Coffee Table

Looking to create a runway for your single serve coffee drinking habits? The Paper Airplane Coffee table is not made of paper, but it does indeed hold your coffee and morning paper. Comes in white only, but we would have preferred yellow ruled.

Squirt-gun Coffee Table - Battle for Coffee Island

candytable_lg3.jpg

The Squirt Gun Coffee table comes with an entire set of squirt guns, so if someone's looking to spill your coffee - you'll be right there squirting. We're not sure how much weight this $350 table can take, so we'd use it for shelter instead of leaping on top with guns a blaring.

Bottomless Coffee Table - Get Vertigo While Drinking Coffee

vertigo02_d.jpg

The Bottomless Coffee Table will either produce vertigo in most single serve coffee drinkers, or a sense their cup of coffee goes on forever and ever. Swedish design firm Offecct has created this illusion by using two-way"spy glass" as well as an additional pane of mirrored glass on a lower shelf. With these two pieces of old school technology perfectly aligned the table offers an illusion of bottomless depth. And you know that vertigo we were talking about, it also happens to be the name of the coffee table.

Wooden Coffee Table with Fire Pit

fire-table_12.jpg

This is both a beautiful idea and a potentially really bad idea. We can imagine having a patio version of this coffee table, but in your living room? Not likely. The Planika Fires people will have you believe this design has no smoke, and is also eco friendly. Apparently the fire pit in your table is indeed a mobile fire solution without smoke or smell. It uses a liquid fuel called Fanola. Fanola is based on alcohol thus clean burning. It may be clean, but we can see ourselves after a tough evening and foggy morning catching the daily paper on fire.
