Like your coffee table, but awesome.

The Rift is a gateway-- a little rip in the fabric of ordinary life.

We love evoking a sense of extra-dimensional space in our furniture. We do it with the Game Vault, an entire table beneath your table, like the core beneath the crust. We do it with an accessory system, an array of satellite support for your games. And with the Rift, we have a third level-- a hidden storage compartment underlying the bottom shelf, a trap door where extra controllers, remotes, and favorite games can slip in and out of view.


We love using The Rift with our Lego inset-- active terrain up top, block storage down below, and no need to put everything away when you need a break. Just put your newly handcrafted Lego space galleon safely off to the side, and cover up the rest! That way, you and/or your kids can build to your hearts' content without losing everything in that other extra-dimensional rift, the couch.

Every Rift includes:

  • Choice of 12 sizes
  • Choice of wood
  • Conversion varnish
  • Game Vault System
    • Hardwood Leaves (length-wise)
    • Vault depth: 2 1/4"

If you are more of a visual learner, go to the GEEK CHIC booth walkthrough.  This 2 part series tours you through most of our Made-To-Order furniture.  The Rift is shown in part 1.
*The Geek Chic Valet is your geek furniture expert and advocate, here to help you make informed decisions as you optimize your order after placing your deposit.


Open the RIFT PRICING GUIDE and on the first page you will see the Size Guide matrix and each sizes associated cost. The cost of the included features are based on the size you choose.  

Reading the guide:

  • The dimensions with the white background indicate the Game Vault's size.  
  • The dimensions with the grey background indicate the full table's size.

Your Valet will assist you with making sure you get the size the will fit your space, group size and most importantly your games!


Geek Chic furniture is all hand-crafted from strong, straight-grained hardwoods, sourced from certified sustainable forests. 

To help you choose, your Valet will send you a packet of wood samples for you to peruse in the natural light of your intended space. 

GEEK KNOWLEDGE:  Stain?  Not if we can help it!
FAS grade lumber is the top industry standard grade of lumber used for high-end furniture. Being the wood geeks we are, we have a created a specialty "Geek Chic grade" of even higher quality lumber that does not need to be stained. (Although you may add-on stain should you choose.) All the images you see on this website are not stained unless specifically stated. You are seeing the quality of our lumber with a clear conversion varnish sealant-- no stain is covering up inferior grades of wood!


Conversion varnish is the clear finish most commonly used in the high-end furniture market.  This unsung hero of the finish world is extremely durable, and rated for heavy use. Its a little tricky to apply, but it is worth it.  Unlike lacquers and polyurethanes, conversion varnish is completely water-resistant, so you needn’t worry about water, wine or hot beverage stains!  

Conversion varnish is also a dream to clean-just use mild soap and water and a non-abrasive cloth.  Gamer-proof!
GEEK KNOWLEDGE:  Household Chemicals Tests show that conversion varnish has no visual effect from Household Ammonia, Vinegar, Lemon Juice, 50% Ethyl Alcohol, Red Ink, Oil Base Paint, Latex Emulsion Paint, VM&P Naphtha, Turpentine, Orange Crayon, Carbon Tetrachloride, 10% Sodium Carbonate Solution, Water, or Grease--Conversion varnish is a superior coating to any brand of varnish, lacquer, or polyurethane!


The Game Vault is where your games and maps are kept safe, flat, and spill/cat/people-resistant. Keep your game safe and in progress with this deceptively simple and infinitely useful system of layers.


A set of hardwood leaves (lid), the transparent layer (with suction cup to lift it) and a white vault floor are included. The remaining layers are game specific add-ons.

 Download pricing guide for more information on these alternate layers under the Leaves and Lids & Insets pages of the pricing guide.


Coffee tables are offered in 18", 20", 22", and 24" heights. We have discovered that taller coffee tables are more useful and comfortable...especially if you are tall :)  Your Valet will ask your height and discuss your needs for this table in order to get the perfect height. 


Two hinged lids conceal a 3 1/4'' deep storage-- a second drop surface, for the express purpose of keeping your games and controllers.

Custom Foam Controller Storage
An additional accessory that you can add to your Rift's storage level. It can be cut to custom dimensions for your Wii, Xbox 360, PS3 and any remotes you would like.


Think of the Rail System as Geek Chic's utility belt for your table. Light weight rail accessories attach anywhere along the Rail Groove in your table.  This system allows for the ultimate in quickly reconfiguring to suit your game.
For more details, Download pricing guide and check out the Accessories page.
