Coffee table designs may have changed over the years, but they still have possessed the same function. SOBRO has brought a new “smarter” coffee table to the marketplace, combining beverage cooling, connection, and sleek modern design. The whole package features a clean modular look but inside, you’ll find everything you could want. SOBRO coffee table was started by product company StoreBound and launched on Indiegogo in 2017, raising over 1.5 million dollars from backers. After shipping to backers and appearing in the Best Buy flagship store, the SOBRO coffee table is finally here.
The SOBRO coffee table features plenty of storage: a refrigerated drawer to keep your drinks cold and two storage drawer to store books, magazines and everything else. The specs are as such:
Refrigerator Drawer – 22″ x 11″ x 7″
2 Storage Drawers – 10″ x 13″ x 5″
43″ W x 23″ D work surface
Coffee tables are great for storage, but SOBRO wanted to take their model beyond simple storage. They’ve also packed it with plenty of power, with 2 USB charging ports, 4 120V power outlets, Bluetooth-enabled speakers, and LED lighting. All of this is controlled with a touch control pad while on top is a sheet of tempered glass. The SOBRO coffee table is the perfect gadget for the Super Bowl, March Madness, and any major sports event — or just great entertaining.
The SOBRO coffee table is proclaimed to support your “smart lifestyle,” and yes, that’s true. I’d love a coffee table where I can plug in my laptop, tablet or phone as needed, plus the Bluetooth speakers are a nice touch, especially since they connect to your TV. Yes, that will make Stranger Things an even-more atmospheric experience at night. Prepare to look at your coffee table with a touch of sadness, because this thing is amazing.
So all of this goodness doesn’t come cheap. SOBRO coffee table comes in white, black and wood-grain models, with all three retailing for $1,499, and shipping with a Bluetooth dongle. It’s also a bit hefty at 100 lbs, so the company makes sure it ships securely protecting against damage, giving you the option for White Glove. White Glove costs $100 extra and means it will be shipped to a secure location for assembly, then delivered to you. If you live in Alaska or Hawaii, you’re going to need to add another $300 for shipping, so be aware.
If you want to buy the SOBRO coffee table, you have several choices: You can either purchase it from the official website, or buy it on Wayfair, where it ranges around $1,299 plus free shipping; you may be able to find it on other online retailers. Reviews of the table seem to be favorable, and should usher in a new wave of cool smart decor options.
