The Hippo Coffee Table collection is not only unique, it is adorably unique. Each piece of furniture in the collection happens to be supported by a bronze sculpture of the animal that inspired its name. The sculptures add more than simple visual appeal. Each hippo interacts with the glass surface above its head, making it appear as though the onlooker has just caught a real one peaking over the body of water it would be submerged in.

Designed by Scottish sculptor and furniture designer Mark Stoddart, the Hippo Coffee Table collection is particularly perfect for people who live in animal-loving homes that are warm, welcoming and already full of character. Playful and quirky, these tables will quickly become as precious as a beloved pet.
