This coffee table looks relatively simple. It's made of several large pieces of hardwood that has been treated with a silver finish. But the San Francisco manufacturer of luxury furniture, Council Design, has really gone far beyond simple. In fact, the technique that makes this simple silver coffee table is a proprietary and painstakingly difficult process that makes this table worth all of the $42,000 you would pay to own one.
Just think, should I put a down payment on a house? No. Shall I buy a luxury automobile? Maybe. Instead, I'll get a coffee table. This is not likely to be found in IKEA any time soon.
