• How Does Stacking Layers Of Glass And Wood End Up Turning Into This Gorgeous Abyss Table?

    How Does Stacking Layers Of Glass And Wood End Up Turning Into This Gorgeous Abyss Table?

    At first glance, the Abyss Table looks like a fancy aquarium coffee table.  Like someone took a large rock and turned it into a tank where fish can swim around.  But it isn’t.  In fact, there’s not even any water on the darn thing. And there aren’t any rocks either. Instead, it employs a carefully-layered series of wood and glass that creates an illusory effect of a body of water entrenched on a large boulder’s body.  It’s a mesmerizing sight, [...]

    This Coffee Table Wrap Makes Any Box Look Like A Miniature Shipping Container

Do note: you’re not getting an actual table done up to look like a compact shipping container.  Instead, it’s an adhesive wrap that you slap onto the walls of any box to turn it into one. [...]

  • These Floyd Legs Can Turn Pretty Much Any Flat Surface Into A Table

    These Floyd Legs Can Turn Pretty Much Any Flat Surface Into A Table

    Over the years, we’ve seen various clamp designs that let you create impromptu tables out of any flat slab. So far though, I have yet to find one I can actually purchase. Well, that ends now with these Floyd Legs. The concept is simple: attach a clamp to a table leg, so it can be attached to one corner of a slab of wood, metal or some other material that can serve as a tabletop. That’s it. As long as [...]

  • Analog Clocktail Puts A Giant Clock Under Your Coffetable

    Analog Clocktail Puts A Giant Clock Under Your Coffetable

    We keep a special place in our hearts for analog clocks.  Even though we have the time on every piece of household electronics these days (heck, even my electric fan shows the time), having a huge clock somewhere around the house still makes sense somehow.   If you like to keep a small clock on the coffee table, too, why not trade that in for this Analog Clocktail Table. Instead of putting a clock on the table, it puts a clock [...]

    Floppytable Brings Retro Storage To Your Living Room

    You had serious hots for that NES Controller Coffee Table.  Unfortunately, the fancy gaming-inspired furniture piece didn’t quite fit into your budget, which is why you still have the same cocktail table you traded for an old game console from a dude on Craigslist.  Well, here’s another retro tech-themed coffee table you probably can’t afford: the Floppytable.

  • Drink Wine While Sitting On This Giant Champagne Cork Stool

    Drink Wine While Sitting On This Giant Champagne Cork Stool

    A long time ago in a land far, far away, a giant came down from his home in the heavens bringing a giant crate filled with giant bottles of wine to share with the puny humans in the land down below.  They partied, got drunk and got a little rowdy through the course of the night, eventually breaking the bottles and leaving nothing but the corks behind.  Those corks have now made their way to the internet and are sold [...]

  • Zesch Coasters Interlock To Form Larger Mats

    Zesch Coasters Interlock To Form Larger Mats

    We love the Zesch Coasters’ obviously ninja star-inspired looks.  Functional coasters plus ninja weapons definitely sound like a sterling combination.  But, alas, it gets better. Designed by Michiel Cornelissen, each coaster isn’t confined to keeping your glasses and mugs from leaving stains on the table all by itself.    Instead, the coasters can be connected to each other in a hexagonal grid just like a jigsaw puzzle, allowing you to form them into a variety of shapes and sizes for whatever [...]

  • Little Oyster Is A Coffee Table That’s Also A Chair That’s Also A Storage Box

    Little Oyster Is A Coffee Table That’s Also A Chair That’s Also A Storage Box

    We like it when stuff does other stuff that it isn’t supposed to.  Like helicopters that are also cars.  Or surfboard bags that are also tents.  Or soup mugs that can also hold crackers. And we love the Little Oyster Coffee Table for those same multi-purpose talents. Designed by Al-Hamad Design, the transforming table sports a simple boxy shape that should make it useful either as a side table or a coffee table.  While the design is rather simple and [...]

  • Mixtape Coffee Table

    Mixtape Coffee Table

    Cassette tapes, along with ghetto blasters and Sony’s Walkman, beautifully represent how people consumed their music in the 80s.  So it’s not surprising a lot of today’s designers are incorporating those iconic objects into their creations.  This gorgeous Mixtape Table has to be one of the darling examples. Made by Jeff Skierka, it’s a coffee table clad in the iconic form of a cassette tape.  And he stays faithful, recreating the old media in detail, complete with fake tape running [...]

    Aqua Coffee Table Aquarium: Put Your Feet Up On The Fish Tank

    A labyrinth aquarium sitting on a table pushed up to the wall is nice.   You don’t look at it all that much, though, since you’re not too fond of looking away from the TV while you’re lazing it up on the couch.  You won’t have that problem with the Midwest Tropical 675 Aqua Coffee Table. Instead of having your fish tank pushed off to one end of the room, this dual-purpose coffee table and aquarium puts it right in front [...]

    Don’t have space for a home office? Not a problem with the Convertible Coffee Table, which extends into a functional work desk so you can turn the living room into a makeshift office without having to hunch your back. Designed for folks who get an inkling to work a computer while watching Oprah, the coffee table’s surface can be lifted to standard desk height. While it looks a little uncomfortable from the picture (I blame the angle), the sales page [...]

    Grand Central Coffee Table Unfolds Like A Pop-Up Map

    Folding coffee tables are nothing new. In fact, you’ve probably seen your share of them. But still every time we see a new one, its like awesomeness all over again. The Grand Central functions in a similar way, offering a full-fledged coffee table that folds up into a bundle you can stow inside a closet for easy storage.

    Eastpak x Q&M Club Sofa 01 Cleans Up Living Room Clutter With Pockets

    Why buy magazine racks, remote docks and other storage solutions for the living room when you can use the couch to hold them all in? That’s exactly what backpack moguls Eastpak and designers Quinze & Milan appear to be saying with their new couch, which comes with loads and loads of zippered pockets to hold every knick-knack imaginable. Reading materials? Put it in the sofa. AV equipment? Throw it in there too. Chargers? Children’s toys? Pet droppings? Yep, there’s ample [...]

  • Can Grip Turns Your Canned Drink Into A Mug

    Can Grip Turns Your Canned Drink Into A Mug

     I hate canned drinks. My hands are already clammy to begin with, so I don’t need no cold beer to drench it. That’s why the Can Grip sounds like a godsend, giving that inconvenient vessel mug-like handling powers. Designed to snap onto standard 12oz cans, the contraption not only adds a plastic handle for your gross-sounding Watermelon Wheat Beer, it also appends a coaster at the bottom of the can. No more wet palms and no more rings on [...]
