Carbon Fiber Coffee Table

This is most expensive coffee table ever seen before, which was made by Rhys Mellor a boat builder, originally from New Zealand. The Coffee Table worth $16,000 and is made up of carbon uni-bands on the edges and middle for stiffness. Carbon fiber being susceptible to compression, a 5mm core has been created in between, giving the table its solid look.

I admit that it’s a beautiful piece of furniture, simple, stylish and modern in the same time. And the material used is also to be appreciated. But honestly, the price is over the top. After all it’s just a table. I can see how a boat is expensive because that one is actually floating above water and it’s big and keeps you dry when sailing over the seas and having fun with your friends. But this is just a simple coffee table, small and insignificant.

All you do is use to have coffee in the morning and then that’s it. Maybe if I has ton of money and I had soothing to do with them I would consider buying a coffee table that’s so expensive. But even then I wouldn’t want to buy this one. It has a relatively interesting design, but it’s not that creative and honestly it’s a little boring. So this is one coffee table that I really don’t like.
