You might think you have seen it everything in the world of coffee tables, but you probably haven’t seen anything like this. French artist Charly Molinelli was recently approached by an ultra-high end client to fabricate a coffee table that can only be described as unique. Think of this as a recycling project of sorts. One man’s very expensive trash becomes another man’s treasure.
The piece was formed from the wreckage of a crashed Ferrari, which was reduced to cube form at a salvage yard. The piece was then encased in a recycled wood box with a glass top. A crashed Ferrari does not come along every day however and the client demanded approval over the final chosen car. It’s rumored that the crashed Ferrari was purchased for somewhere in the neighborhood of $15,600 but there’s no word on what the finished piece is worth.
If the price or the concept makes your stomach flip, there’s no problem. There are a number of coffee tables available that will make your living room stand out but in a less macabre sort of way.
Try out a bright red coffee table. This is the perfect choice for those with traditional style who aren’t afraid to be bold. The bright color is sure to make a statement but its charming country inspired styling keeps it from being too overwhelming. This would make a particularly nice accent in a mostly blue or grey room with seaside inspired design.

Sculpted glass is always eye catching. This curvy table has frosted glass accents and a curved glass dip detail which really make it stand out. This is a great look to try in a very contemporary space. It would work especially well over a brightly patterned or colorful rug.
Or go sleek with a contemporary with a square glass coffee table with java wood accents. Its unusual shape and form is a great way to get that urban loft look in your space. Plus its simple lines mean that works well with a number of décor styles, from contemporary to transitional.
