Musical Drum Table Will Drown Out The Awkward Conversations At Your Next Cocktail Party

I could never see myself buying a coffee table that was just a coffee table. But I could definitely see myself buying a coffee table that was embedded with a collection of drums and other percussion instruments. The Musical Rumba Series tables are hand built by artist Tor Clausen in his Olympia, Washington studio, and each one comes with a collection of interchangeable and rearrangeable percussion inserts. Why you’d want a table you can drum on is kind of hard to explain, so I recommend checking out this video of it in action. (That was all it took to sell me on the idea.)

The tables come in 2×2, 2×4, 3×3 and 4×4 configurations and can include various combinations of the of the 12 different percussion modules like snare drums, chimes, cow bells, high hats and even a cymbal crash. Since the tables are all hand made they range in price from $800 for the 2×2 configuration up to $2,900 for the 4×4 and require half the total price as a deposit.

    I saw this on Global Grind, so I figured it had to be interesting. That table looks cool as hell! I’d get annoyed though when dinner gets served and it sounds like a marching band, but for the times when there’s nothing to do at home I’d drum away.

    Heh, I’d bang the bongos all day long with that girl.
