I’m sure you all know by now that we love interesting coffee tables here at surface tension and we think this Nintendo Controller Coffee Table is awesome. Created by designer Charles Lushear, from the Etsy store ‘The Bohemian Workbench,’ this nod to retro gaming is completely functional. So you can actually play your old favorites while sipping on your morning coffee.
Made using maple, curly maple, birdseye maple, burl, mahogany and walnut, the Nintendo Controller Coffee Table will cost you a pretty penny but the workmanship looks absolutely superb. Though the novelty alone is well worth the extra coin. Play one round of Tetris on the coffee-bearing control board and you’ll be hooked. Sure, it might be a little harder to get your thumb to the B button in time, but the fact that you’re playing with your coffee table should take the sting out of any low scores.
Available through The Bohemian Workbench Etsy store and priced at around £3,500 plus shipping. Charles has some great other pieces available including controller wall art, an Elmo ukulele and the Karl Pilkington table which as you would expect is shaped like an orange.
