It makes so much sense: a low-to-the-ground coffee table on wheels, which can be scooted out of the way for impromptu dance parties and gymnastic sessions or even wheeled outside for porch cocktail parties. Here are 10 good examples, ranging from a homemade version made from pallets to the investment-priced Tavolo Con Ruote coffee table by Gae Aulenti for Fontanta Arte (plus an Ikea number for $50).
