Get a new sofa and you’ll need to make sure you’re existing coffee table’s height matches your new seating selection.  Too high and you’ll be awkwardly reaching, if not spilling your drinks.  To low and you’ll be dropping your remotes and other sofa worthy items to the table’s surface – not good for an iPad.

The Restoration Hardware Scissor Table negates that possible conundrum.  Sure, it costs over $2,000, but that’s the price you pay for future proofing.  It comes in two different finishes, though the one featured here has been glazed in nickel giving it a nice polished look.  Turn the wheel and the table’s height can be lowered or heightened.  When you stop turning it automatically locks into place.  While it’s not vintage, the table is a reproduction designed after a vintage American factory lift.  And for those of you that can’t decide if it’s a coffee table, side table or simple a piece to oggle at, there are casters to roll it from location to location in  your 10,000 square foot home.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
