Here’s a coffee table design based on the “armory” from The Dark Knight that rises from the floor in the Batcave. In order to function as a coffee table, the armory appears to be only partially raised.
What I like about this design is the hidden geek factor the table has, it just blends into the living room scenery. Also it has plenty of storage functionality, the same purpose as its film counterpart.
The armory would also be great as a wardrobe or trophy case (your sports uniform in place of the Batsuit). Personally I prefer it being the centerpiece of the living room, in order to enable delusions of being Batman/Bruce Wayne.
Apologies for the image quality here, no matter what I do the images look burnt and grainy online.
