Be Ready for 2012 with This Crowd-Busting Coffee Table

By Andrew Tarantola on at

Whether the Mayans were right or not, the world is quickly going to hell in a hand basket — rioting across the globe, from the middle East to the middle of London. Be prepared to defend you and yours with the "In Case of Riot" coffee table.

New York-based designers Max Arlestig and Maximilian Gebhardt custom fabricated the table's square steel tube frame to fit an off-the-shelf riot shield. It'll go perfectly with your mace bookcase and extendable-baton umbrella. [Dezeen]
