Default Hookah goes on the ground!

So I see alot of people smoking with their hookah on a table and I believe that is a hookah no no. Traditionaly hookahs are put on the ground. I don't really care but a lot of people talk about tradition and stuff. I don't believe white people smoking hookah is tradtional either hehe. I do want to see some more modern designs though. I'm thinking of making a hookah built into a couch. =)

When I have a harem complete with 72 virgins, maybe then I can smoke traditionally complete with a ghutra and thobe, until then my low coffee table works fine , I do sit it on the floor sometimes, but it's mainly for convenience than anything else.

BTW one of the best modern (though I'm not sure how modern it is) hookah inventions is the hookah table (just the table with a cut out hole in the middle and a raised shelf for the base, not the crazy hookahwholesale tables with hose ports on the sides).

Gram what the heck is wrong with you? I have a harem, get yourself a harem, I think our prefered vendors need to start carrying them, no man should be without a harem.

That would be super sweet to have a hookah built into some everyday object.

Mine is a small little SS rave, to put that thing on the floor and smoke i would have to lay down. But since I have to smoke outside, I would have to lay in the wet grass. Ill stick to the Yard table and chairs I smoke on XD

I do think that practically needs to be in effect for whether or not the hookah rests on the floor. It's fine for 18" and up to sit on the floor as you can reach it and it's big enough you'll see it and not knock it over. Smaller than 18" probably should be on a table or if you're sitting on the ground with it, that's fine. Otherwise I see many burnt carpets in the future...

And your reason for telling everyone that they are wrong is...? Generally I like my hookah on the ground, however, carpet is not hookah friendly and makes everything wobbly. Then I put it on the table. The table Gram is talking about is a great idea and one that I have. It raises it up off the floor just a bit and keeps everything stable.

They are pretty easy to make. Go to goodwill find a cheap table then cut a hole in it the size of your stem. Problem solved. I put my hookah on the floor but for stability its on top of a hardback copy of the Guinness world records

I believe you are a Hookah "No No" for telling people that having a hookah on a table isn't "traditional" or right. I never have mine on the floor because it is not practical for my smoking habits.

I suppose that you could. The tank would make a good base if you sectioned it off.
