Have you seen these amazing coffee tables that are also fish tanks? What do you think about all those incredible fish swimming around in their aquatic environment whilst you are sitting in front of the box or woofing down a packet of Twinkies or two? I kind of feel that they are pretty special pieces of furniture, but that you really need the right kind of room for something as out there as this. I am just not sure whether I want to share my slob out time with these wriggling fellas beneath me.
Are they going to be looking up at me when I am scoffing down a few golden fried fish fingers? Am I going to feel uncomfortable about their scrutiny? I like to relax when I am at home, especially after a hard day’s work. I eat a lot of takeaway at my coffee table in front of the TV. How is going to go down when I am enjoying a Thai prawn curry and I look down and see all these fish and their tails going wild? Are they going to want to share my spaghetti marinara? What do fish even eat anyway?
These Amazing Coffee Tables Are Also Fish Tanks
I can imagine that for really chilled out people these things could be right up their alley, you know, Zen dudes and women into yoga, but for me I am not so sure. I like to put my feet up on the coffee table and relax. What are the fish going to think about these enormous work boots coming down on them? The shadow they will cast could make them feel like it’s an apocalypse or something, frantic fish could be darting left and right in sheer panic and shitting themselves. Sending out SOS messages and silently screaming in terror, how will I feel being the innocent cause of all this fish stress and tension?
I have always had normal timber coffee tables. You know, wooden top with four wooden legs; something sturdy and solid. Nothing wriggling about, no fluid, except when I spill my glass of wine on it, and nothing much to look at, apart from a bit of wood grain. I like the peace that wood sends out, the simple message that this is a bit of dead tree and there are no surprises. I suppose timber is soulful in a way; here I am put your bloody great big feet on me, I can cope, no worries mate. Yeah, wood that’s for me!
