Veteran designer Ricardo Garza Marcos didn’t have to look far and wide for fresh ideas when it came to his new coffee table. Dubbed after the infamous fault line that threatens to split the West Coast and send it adrift in the Pacific, the San Andreas literally swallows your misgivings.
Of course, it hasn’t escaped us that having jagged edges/teeth across the middle looks like a bad idea. Especially when there’s the family china involved and you’re having tea/coffee, then you try to get something inside and the priceless things crash to the bottom. Worse, if someone who buys this has pesky kids, those kids might lock themselves inside the San Andreas vampire style.
Oh yeah, that’s a good idea: is it possible to sleep inside this coffee table? It looks roomy enough and might be used along the lines of that Chinese earthquake bed we featured some months back.
You can put your friend’s stuff (i.e., laptop or messenger bag) on it and when they’re not looking let the table gobble it up. When they ask “Where’s my ****?” You go “What ****?”
