Here’s another coffee table that you could probably just build yourself in order to save a boatload of cash. The Three Sixty Table was designed by Studio Mauerer Hendrichs and it features three sets of trucks and wheels from a skateboard. With the wheels the 40-inch glass top can be rotate just like a gambling roulette. the Three Sixty Table is available for $1,795.

It’s such a rudimentary table and it’s so simple to build that you wonder why you should pay all that money for something that you could very well create just by yourself. Well, it’s not about how simple or difficult it is to build a piece of furniture, it’s about the idea. So if you think it’s so simple, then how come you didn’t come up with this idea before the designer did?

This unusual coffee table is not the most elegant piece of furniture you could have in your house. However it’s fun and original. I honestly wouldn’t like to have it in my home. I like my coffee table to look… normal. But there are enough people out there who are constantly looking for something original, something special to include in their homes. And this piece fits the criteria. So what are you waiting for? Just buy it already.

Machine Light by Frank Buchwald

Designed by Frank Buchwald’s, the Machine Lights collection is comprised of 12 steampunk lamp designs that are handmade in extremely limited quantities .The body of the lamp is made of raw brass and steel, which are hand burnished to create a unique antique black and brown hue.

It is definitely an unusual piece. It doesn’t look at all like a functional piece, much less like a lamp. Lamps are usually simple, maybe with some colorful decorations incorporated. These lamps are nothing but unusual and original. I have to say they look very masculine. I can’t imagine a woman having something like that in her home, unless it’s her boyfriend’s or husband’s. It’s definitely a boy’s toy. So if you’re having trouble finding an appropriate gift for a friend, you might like to consider this option because it’s not something that you see very day. He will definitely appreciate it.

The name of this piece is very suggestive. The Machine light… it sounds so manly. The idea is very interesting and the design is also spectacular. It’s too bad there are just a few models and they come in such small quantities. However, the fact that they are so rare and hard to find makes them even more interesting. Good luck trying to find one.
