Forget conversation: Fumiaki Goto's Music Dining Table (inquire for price) allows you to rock out while you're chomping down. Built like a marimba, with copper bars inserted into its wooden bars of various size, which have holes, the table sings by amplifying the sound of the wooden bars like a loudspeaker. Each time you place your wine glass back on the table (if you're like me, often), the table will elicit different tones, depending on how much pressure is applied to various areas on the table's surface. Musical chairs are so last season! Let's just hope you have soundproof walls, or your neighbors may not be a big fan of your newest furniture find . . .
