It's not a new idea, but we'd say Charles Lushear's take on the Nintendo NES controller coffee table is our favorite of memory lane odes to 8-bit gaming. Made from maple, mahogany and walnut with dovetail joinery and midcentury modern legs, it's a little more decor-subtle, yet is fully functional...
This table fully functions as a Nintendo NES controller and can be used to play games with the glass removed. The cord is retractable from underneath. Dimensions: 42" length x 18.25" width x 18" height
Charles Lushear is working on putting together a video showcasing the table in action, but at this time, the table it still available for $3,500.
