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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Sure Earth Day was on Tuesday of this week, but coffee table Friday is at the end of the week, and we thought we'd save our Earth Day shout out until now. The Intelligent Forms SOLo is a coffee table designed to soak up the sun's energy, turning it into stored power allowing you to charge your laptop, cellphone, and other gadgets. It can store enough power in its internal batteries to charge up your cellphone 6,800 times or your laptop 168 times. The SOLo has LED lighting built in for ground effects in your living room, and you can check the charge status on its built-in LCD monitor of devices you hook up, and the internal battery. The SOLo is made of stainless steel and tempered glass with silicon solar cells. Price? Who knows, but you can order it from the Intelligent Forms website. We're betting going green on the coffee table front is not cheap.

We've been wondering when we could hook up our stainless steel coffee mugs, and get them to stay in place instead of flying off our kitchen table when our kids decide to try out our single serve coffee each morning. That's right, with the Magnetic Table of the future, your coffee cups can hang upside down, and stay in place.
The table also has the following benefits:
- store your plates, cups and cutlery, upside down, under the table
- arrange them neatly on top for "symmetrical dining"
- erase the data from any laptop (STAY AWAY FROM MY MACBOOK PRO TABLE!)
- makes it easy for you to knock cups and dishes to the floor under the table with your knees
Seriously though, the table was designed more to keep plates and cups in place for "symmetrical dining". Whatever the use you decide, this is on of the whackier ideas in the coffee table or dining table arena we've seen.

We've been looking for a rounder coffee table, and this one is not only a bit round - it also reminds us of ski goggles or binoculars. The curves are nice, and they allow you to stuff lots of magazines and other reading materials in them. You can have this coffee table in three colors : Dark (£95) ,White (£105) and Oak Veneer on birch ply (£120 ).

Many of the staff here at Single Serve Coffee play guitar, drums, and other instruments, and we've all longed for the perfect coffee table for our jam space. We think we've found it - the Fender Stratocaster Coffee Table. You don’t need to be able to play the guitar to enjoy this, and a cup of single serve coffee is going to look amazing on it right after you finish a good 20 minute jam with your coffee drinking friends.
