A flat surface is about the only standard requirement of a coffee table, everything else is negotiable. This means that you can custom design a table using any materials that you please. The only consideration that you should take into account is the issue of safety; glass should be tempered glass and sharp corners should be smoothed slightly to prevent accidents. Other than these considerations you have free rein.
One of the most unique ideas that I have ever seen was a foosball table with shortened legs used in place of a table. Not only did it serve as great coffee table it made for many entertaining evenings. There are also pinball machines and various other alternatives to this theme on the market.
Another idea is to use tree stumps or other beautiful pieces of wood. The top surface can be sanded and polished to make a beautiful, natural surface. Alternatively, beautiful pieces of driftwood can have legs added to make a wonderful centrepiece coffee table for your room.
Probably the best place to put a small table is an entryway or foyer. Half moon tables in these locations provide the maximum amount of maneuverability while still providing significant space to put items on.
A final head table idea is for the bride and groom to sit at a table with their parents, the maid of honor and best man, and the spouses or dates of the honor attendants. This can be an excellent idea for a couple who has a very small wedding party or an unmanageably large one (the rest of the bridal party would sit among the other guests). It is also a very nice way to honor the parents of the bride and groom. This can be a lovely head table, as long as the newlyweds do not have a complicated family situation (ie, hostile parents or step-parents).
There are a lot of steps involved in taking an end table idea from concept to reality. After the style is decided, prototypes must be built, then refined, then measured, all before starting to cut the pieces for the finished product. It is a lot of work, but that is what it takes to design and build high-end contemporary end tables.
