I have a strange pet peeve- I hate when people display things on top of their coffee tables. Doesn’t matter if its books, photo albums, or knickknacks… it drives me crazy. Problem solved! Ok, so maybe it’s not really a prob to anyone else, but it’s exactly why I appreciate Mitch Steinmetz’s Rememberance coffee table. Instead of acting as a medium for the user and their entertainment, it becomes the entertainment…Taking the form of the common album, the coffee table flips open to reveal tchotchkes, memorabilia, photos etc., encouraging the creation of new memories while cataloging old ones.
