What would a side table designed by men for use by men look like? I would have guessed something that integrates an actual table, four breasts and a six-pack of beer. These Man Tables got me right on two out of three.
Closed shut and tidied up, the furniture looks just like any finely-finished side table. It’s elegant enough to fit with most any contemporary living room and functional enough to hold a bunch of tabletop pieces.
Not manly enough for you? Of course, it isn’t. That happens when you try to open the Man Table’s drawers, which actually opens a drawbridge-like door, exposing a mini-fridge right where a compartment should be. That’s right, a mini-fridge that you can fill with all the beer you need to keep from having to walk down the kitchen every time you need a new bottle while watching the game.
The entire table is made from real wood, so no part of the cooling hardware will be discernible until you actually try to retrieve a drink. Each one is Amish-made and comes in one of three finishes: tobacco, espresso and black.
The Man Table is available directly from the product website, priced between $329 and $359, depending on the finish you choose.
