If West Elm Designed a Gamer's Table...

If West Elm Designed a Gamer's Table...

Hardcore gamers are notorious for being nitpicky about the systems, controllers and gaming options, but not necessarily so exacting about the integration of all their gear with the rest of their home's decor. But company Surface Tension has a different take altogether, packaging a 100 title gaming system into a very handsome cabinet/coffee table that looks as good as it likely plays.

The hidden Shuttle XPC system offers users over 100 video game titles, playable on the 26" LCD display (a smaller 19" model is also available), with a 30-watt system piping in your retro MAME game action sound effects and music, all within a handmade oak or walnut table-cabinet that looks more West Elm than Electronics Arts. And it should look this good considering you'll be parting with over $5000 for a full equipped Arcane system from Surface Tension.
