You Can DIY This $9,000 Coffee Table Yourself for $2,500, but It’ll Take a While…


If you love Lego, and you have a passion for modern interior design, then we might have found the perfect way for you to combine your two loves into one incredible project. It turns out that Lego bricks aren’t just a great way to build castles with your kids, or re-create items from your favourite movies, they can also be a fantastic way of decorating your apartment, if you don’t mind spending hours (or weeks) on construction.

A stunning coffee table made out of 10,000 Lego bricks in white, yellow, green and red has been making the rounds on social media lately, showing people what they can accomplish with a little bit of creativity, some childish enthusiasm and plenty of time on their hands.

The Ultimate Coffee Table/ Art Project

If you’ve been looking for a way to keep yourself busy, without binge-watching a new season of Netflix, then this Lego table, created using 10,480 2×4 Lego bricks could be the ideal project for you and your loved ones. Made by Yusong Zhang, a 37-year-old associate creative director for Saatchi and Saatchi created his stunning piece of furniture as part of a personal design project.

The style of coffee table is a simple rectangle which appears to be pure white on the outside, with yellow, green, and red rings on the inside. According to Zhang, he had always loved Lego as a toy but wanted to give himself the challenge of creating something beautiful and functional with his beloved Lego bricks.

Not only does the Lego coffee table look fantastic, but it’s practical too. It can hold heavy weights, including your games consoles, decorations, and even your lunch if you like also!

Prepare for Sore Thumbs

There are a few challenges involved in building your furniture out of Lego bricks. The chances are you’re going to be left with some sore fingers after 10,000 blocks. Zhang said that the project gave him two sore thumbs, and it took about three weeks in total to bring the project to life after he had figured out how he was going to design it.

The good news is that the reinforced structure is sure to last Zhang a while now that he’s put it together, and if anything ever gets broken or stained, it should be easy to find replacement pieces at the Lego store.

Despite featuring more than 10,000 bricks, the Lego coffee table only stands at around fifteen inches in height and extends about 31 inches in length. Still, that’s plenty of space to hold all the coffee you need and satisfy your craving for nostalgia too!
