In the event that a person is being ambushed by rioters or zombies, the 'In-Case-of-Riot' Table will come in handy.
As exquisite as modern, chic counters look, Max and Max's In-Case-of-Riot Table is the one that people should have in their homes. This furniture piece has a riot shield and it's removable. There are two large handles on the bottom to hold on to and of course, a protective armor large enough to hold off against anything angry coming through the door. When busting heads and pushing past a crowd isn't necessary, the top rests on top of a frame serving as a regular tabletop.
Some might say the In-Case-of-Riot Table may not be necessary, but it's better to be safe than sorry. Here's hoping that removing the counter will never happen.
