Isokon Plus Loop Coffee Table:

The Loop coffee table, made from bended birch wood (or walnut), by the British design duo Barber Osgerby (which is Edward Barber and Jay Osgerby)and now resides in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Victoria and Albert Museum.
Isokon was founded in the 1930s with Bauhaus-patriarch Walter Gropius as the controller of Design and Marcel Breuer(the architect of the Whitney Museum) as the designer. Breuer's designs are what eventually brought fame to Isokon.
This would be a perfect coffee table if we ever do have a baby (our rectangular glass and metal isn't very toddler-friendly). The price? More than I even think a coffee table should cost— about $1500.
