The Coffee Table/Building Blocks Table That's Sweeping Hollywood

Posted by Expert Gadget Reviewer on Thursday, 8 November 2007

Maybe not sweeping Hollywood, but it IS now sitting in really great, modern apartment in West LA inhabited by a very cool couple.
Here is the custom building blocks table/coffee table I mentioned a few posts back.
A few facts about it...

  • I built the table custom to work with the colors in their living room and the height and width of their sofa. I also didn't adhere the lego boards to the table in case they didn't want to use it as a lego table at some point.

  • Instead of building the cube chair for "playing," I, at the request of the owners, built a custom "drawer" with hand openings on both ends for housing magazines and what not. They can also pull the drawer out and place it somewhere else in the room, if they want.

  • One side of the brown doors opens to reveal hidden storage.
  • The containers are for lego storage on top. When not a building table, they could use the containers for anything, really. Candy. Plants. Remotes. An ashtray. Just kidding about, sort of. Do you remember when they use to produce built-in ash trays for chairs and sometimes side tables? Ahh, the good old days.

Drawer action...

Without the lego top.
