Stylish Concrete Ping Pong Table Looks Cool, Will Cost You An Arm and a Leg

Stylish Concrete Ping Pong Table

 

 

Playing ping pong on concrete? That should be nothing new–but we don’t mean playing on a concrete floor. No, we’re talking about playing on a concrete table! Designer James de Wulf has built a name for himself when it comes to concrete furniture, and now he’s built what could be the world’s first concrete ping pong table.

From the legs to the tabletop, the entire thing is made from concrete– except for the net, of course. The price? A whopping $9,320. Not exactly sure if concrete makes ping pong tougher to play or not, but make sure to bring lots of extra balls.

Stumble Upon is a Rug and Coffee Table Combo That You Can Literally Stumble Upon

Stumble Upon

There’s StumbleUpon on the world wide web to help you stumble upon sites, articles, and blogs that you might find interesting. There’s also a Stumble Upon for the real world which happens to be an unusually designed piece of furniture: it’s a rug that doubles as a coffee table as well. Designed by Alessandro Isola, the Stumble Upon might just literally make you stumble upon a magazine on the table by tripping you up. I doubt that’s Alessandro’s intention with his design, though.

His project called ‘stumble upon,’ Alessandro Isola uses these folds and curves to an advantage that creates a flexible and practical coffee table”

Strange, But It Just Might Work: Portable Folding Napkin Table

Foldable Napkin Table

 

Picnics are fun, but it’s hard to eat a decent meal without a table. That’s why most people pack finger food and sandwiches in their baskets instead to prevent any potential mess. A concept by Michael Jan, who’s an industrial design graduate from Taiwan’s Tunghai University, might soon change all that though.

Michael came up with this portable folding napkin table that’s essentially a cross between, well, a napkin and a table. Both ends are meant to be worn by people who are sitting opposite one another. The table-slash-napkin has slots for bowls and cups so you can have a proper meal without the fuss.Continue Reading

Shut Up and Take My Money: Floppy Disk Coffee Table

Floppy Disk Table

Remember those floppy disks from the yesteryears which only allowed you to store up to 1.44MB of data on each disk? That’s not enough space for an mp3 file containing a full song, let alone a single high-res image file. It just goes to show that data storage has truly come a long way since then.

Paying tribute to storage’s humble beginnings are the creative duo behind Neulant van Exel: Axel van Exel and Marian Neulant. They took inspiration from the classic 3.5″ floppy disk to build the Floppy Table, which is a really cool coffee table constructed from welded hot-rolled steel and stainless steel. The best thing about the table is the secret compartment that’s revealed by moving the metal shutter sideways.

Hit the break to check out more images of the table.

Ergonomic Laptop Stand-Slash-Tray is Perfect for Those Who Love Working in Bed

Laptop Bed Desk Tray

Ever wished that you could lie in bed and work with your back propped up on your pillows when you don’t feel like getting up and walking over to your desk? Well, I have, and I would usually just lug my laptop to my bed and start working. Unfortunately, it’s a lot more taxing on my back than I’d like, since I have to hunch over my keyboard whenever I lean in to type.

There are a lot of bed stands and tables around to take care of that problem, but none like this one I just spotted today. It’s a laptop stand-slash-tray-slash bed desk that makes working from bed comfortable and ergonomic. It’s even got a mouse pad holder off to one side and a cup holder on the other for maximum comfort (and to make sure that you never get thirsty!)
