A new coffee table from Bottega Montana has a certain old medieval feel to it. This coffee table named the "Calice", is made of sturdy, natural wood, and has a tempered glass top. The best feature? How about the middle where you can put magazines and other items in for safe keeping. Perhaps we could even hide an entire chilled bottle of wine? Who knows, but this table has it all.

A crystal wonder that harkens back to a time when we longed of drinking single serve coffee in Superman's Fortress of Solitude. Made with a crystalline structure that supports the table top, we think this coffee table is an instant classic and worthy of coffee with Superman himself.

We're ready for the future and ready for an LED interactive coffee table to grace our house. Made of 100% sustainable wood and water-based finishes, this Coffee Table is large enough for a big room at 62" long by 31" wide by 18" high and comes with either a with a nice thick glass or plastic top. The LEDs are only activated when they see motion. As you can see in the pictures, even though the person's hand is on the table, only things moving will set off the lights. Without motion the table calms down to a very slight attractive twinkling.

Okay - so maybe not a beehive coffee table, but you can see how the design would translate to a pretty amazing coffee table design. Designer Hoon Roh is one of those interesting designers that look to nature for inspiration in regard to design and function. Bees are pretty amazing insects and this table really reflects that.

We've featured this coffee table before, but now you can buy it direct from the UK. The aquarium coffee tables range anywhere from $2,000 to $3,000, so this might not be your first purchase in a coffee table, but we think if you are out to impress or REALLY REALLY love fish under you coffee in the morning, this is perfect for you.
The tank is equipped over a unique filter system that allows for as little maintenance as possible. It does come with all the plants and rocks which are specially made for the tank which is nice for the $3000 price tag.
Thanks to Jim for pointing this out.

We like the sleek clean lines and the modern look of this coffee table.The smartly designed sliding cabinet door is white-powder coated aluminum that moves on a grooved track along with the birch wood frame.

New York based designer Brad Ascalon recently showed off his elegant Period Table, a new piece for Italian furniture company Sintesi. The Ascalon's use of powder coated steel and tempered glass really makes this classically inspired table a bit different. We like the open end to the leg, and feel the table speaks of a simpler modern time.

The Aureole Table is made of frosted acrylic and lights up in a variety of color options and costs $2,700.00. Okay - so maybe that's a bit much for a coffee table, but we love the different colors in our Mathmos Aduki, and we think this could help to match our coffee mood when we need the added accent.

We often wonder if we could look at a coffee table and see it as the canvas of our single serve coffee life. Well, Italian designer Francesco Cappuccio has come up with quite the interesting new coffee table design centered around this idea - dubbed “Canvas”. It’s inspired by Piet Mondrian’s 1918 painting “Composition with Gray and Light Brown”. We don't think this coffee table is available but Josh Spear and crew recommend you contact old Francesco and let him know you want one.

Here at Single Serve Coffee, we are always looking for the building blocks of a better coffee home and future. We think we've found the essential building blocks of life with the CEO Desk above. Sure, the picture above may not be a coffee table, but we know this desk represents the future of coffee table building.
Here's what the Swedish designers have to say about their creation:
CEO is a desk for a powerful person that reflects on a glimpse of the lost childhood, when life was easier and freer. We want to invite the director to a journey back to a time when life was filled with playfulness, more fun and when he or she was better at showing their feelings. We created the desk bound by the structural laws of LEGO-building bricks, combined this with the grace of the late Rococo furniture style and painted it glossy black to evoke feelings of exclusivity and power. CEO is made up of massive beech, MDF and painted with black enamel paint.
