Sick of volleyball and croquet?

I first encountered Design Within Reach when I passed their store in San Francisco. Most of their stock is not priced within my reach, but I still enjoy checking out their catalog, seeing what I like and what I don't.

For a mere $3998 (not including s&h, but oh hey, there's an installment plan), you too could own an All-Weather Foosball Table complete with drink holders. (Just remember to stick it in your house if you get behind on the payments.)

I don't really care for it, and I think having all the players the same color would make it harder to keep track of the ball, but it does appeal to part of me: the part that likes to play games and be outside. Make it a pool table, and I'm in.

  1. I love that store, but it is a bit of a misnomer. It is pretty pricey. I'd like a store called "Design So Low in Reach I Don't Even Have To Stand."

  2. Neil: Isn't that what Ikea means in English? ;)

  3. It looks like baby foot which I immensely enjoy playng. Only you can make one team out from the other.
