I love this coffee table from San Francisco-based designer, Jared Rusten. It's like having a piece of art in the room that is functional. That's my favorite kind of furniture.
From his website:
This coffee table, carefully cut into the iconic shape of California is crafted from native, salvaged Claro Walnut for the top, and native, salvaged, White Oak for the base. Dimensions: 56″ long (tip to tip), 15.5″ tall, approx. 18″ wide. $2500
