I don’t like to play games with my morning coffee but I would play games while drinking my morning coffee for sure! This coffee table doubles down as a gaming console and it is exactly what we need while staying home in 2020.
An homage to retro gaming machines and furniture enthusiasts, this coffee table is one of its kind. Swedish designer Love Hulten has created a slim slide-out console with 2-player arcade joysticks & push-button gaming controls. It is inspired by the old-school gaming arcades and includes the big buttons as well as a joystick that is also a knob for the coffee table. The custom-crafted table features a wireless gaming system that connects with your smart TV for modern yet classic home gaming. With a classic American walnut and brass aesthetic, the table’s form will appeal to most and allow it to blend in any interior style.
“The wireless setup connects to your TV via a small wooden console, no cables,” says Hulten on his Instagram noting that this console-coffee table is a visually cleaner, chord-free piece to own. Arcade games are cool, but I am not a YouTuber so they would look weird in my house. However, a sleek table that masks a whole gaming console is exactly what I would go for (till I become a famous YouTuber). Hulten is known to only make limited-edition pieces using his love for everything retro and his knack for getting modern design right. This coffee table brings together nostalgia and technology in the most playful yet subtle way possible. Player 1 is ready!
