Riddle: what is black, & wood, & beautiful all over?

Our new coffee table!  I picked up this prize on Saturday at a local Goodwill for $29.99!  Can you believe it?  Looks like something out of a Pottery Barn catalog to me...but with character and history!  We love it because it also offers a TON of storage.  We decided to fill it with all of our board games...check it out:

Best wishes,
