There’s no shortage of arcade tables nowadays, but Surface Tension’s Contemporary Arcade Table raises the stakes with a modern design; they’ll even drop in your own gaming rig.
More gear for your ultimate bachelor pad: the Optime Strategies Table is an updated version of the classic face-to-face arcade cabinet; you can also surf the internet and play MP3s with it.
The Solo Lounge Table adds function to the classic coffee table; it’s solar powered, and provides USB, 3-prong and lighter outlets. A bluetooth transmitter sends power info to your PC.
Heckler Design’s OneLessDesk is actually two desks in one; a lower deck can serve as a keyboard tray or secondary desk, but slides away under the upper deck when not in use.
Best paper airplane ever: Irish designer Lorraine Brennan’s Jet Coffee Table is actually made out of 2mm thick steel sheets; the folds double as a place to stash your magazines.
Waste not, want a lot: other than the glass tabletop, Formtank’s 3Fold Desk is created from a single sheet of powder-coated steel. Check out this animation to see how it was made.
Now available: Paul Bichler’s iDesk was created specifically with Apple products in mind, with a clean, minimalist look, cable management features and built-in docking station.
It’s not as lux as the bespoke Opus Football, but the Diamond Plate Foosball table is still extra swank with diamond plate accents and a built-in MP3 player dock with speakers.
The attention to detail on these hand-crafted, glass-topped Alien coffee tables (#1, #2) is stunning: they’re made from car and bike parts, tools, and other scavenged metal pieces.
Carlo Mollino’s classic Cavour Writing Desk was designed in 1949, but its swank cantilevered design and sleek profile are timeless. The 1/2″ thick glass rests on a streamlined oak frame.
Schulte Design’s Kitchen Workstation is a butcher block on one end and a laptop work area on the other. The milk glass panel slides away to reveal power ports and a document tray.
We like West Elm’s Cadman Workstation for its modularity; mix and match three different-sized units. Also slick: powder-coated steel frame and frosted (or silver-toned) glass.
Lee J Rowland is an aerospace engineer who makes really, really cool furniture on the side. His Ripple series of tables are made from chrome plated steel using 3D CNC machining.
