98 Terrific Tables

From Musical Marimba Dining Tables to Solar-Powered Side Tables

— May 23, 2009 — Art & Design
Tables are fixtures in every household in the world, but these innovative tables are anything but standard.

From musical marimba tables that make dinnertime fun to illuminated side tables sure to lure you to sleep, these terrific tables won't fail to satisfy your cravings for creative interior design.

Implications - Though it was not always seen as the most exciting part of a room, the table is recently receiving a lot of attention from the world of interior design as consumers seek a holistically thematic approach to the look of their homes. Thus, tables need to be incorporated into the overall aesthetic of a home, calling for much more than four legs and a slate.
