Hot or Not? Alpha Coffee Table by Crate and Barrel

Hot or Not? Alpha Coffee Table by Crate and Barrel

We took this image at the Printer's Row Book Fair about 5 years ago because we loved the look of vintage letterpress blocks clustered together. Being total bibliophiles, seeing this display at the book fair almost made us teary-eyed.

When we spied Crate and Barrel's Alpha Coffee Table, $899.00, we were instantly intrigued but upon further examination were left feeling underwhelmed. We want to love it...but can't quite get there.

The Alpha Coffee Table is carved from a single piece of wood and finished off with a crackle finish, the table top sits upon a powdercoated steel base. What do you think?
