#13 Claire End Table Alanrium Tank From Wayfair
Okay, so we mainly added this one in for fun as it is a bit ridiculous, and ridiculously expensive for a side table, but you gotta admit, it is definitely an accent table, how many other side tables have fish swimming around in them? We’re guessing the novelty would wear off pretty quickly but still, if you happen to have won some kind of cash prize, it certainly would be a conversation starter…
