Usually I make the table tops of clay but the coaster (looking lopsided) on the top egg stand was a garage sale item, used only to show it's possible.
Other things I've used, other than clay or wood, are cake decorations, candle holders, lamp parts, elephants (as you'll see on my clay blog) and various wedding supply items, to name but a few.

The table is a base from an oriental candle or vase, and the top is a real slate coaster. I love making furniture the easy way. :)
The flowers I made in real pots, adding clay, and then sticking in the flowers from model railroading supplies. I tested to make sure, and was able to cook them all to set the poly clay. -doc

I have used similar metals to make balcony railings in a castle, and depending on how you cut these, they could be used to decorate tops of beds, decorate tables, and so forth. I'm sure that one could make interesting sconces and other decorations.

Glass and ceramic tiles can be used to make castle floors. I was lucky enough to find a dozen of these sales samples from Italy, covering three square foot each, at a garage sale. I also picked up pure glass tiles. Most of the glass is iridescent and difficult to show in a photo. I'll be able to make many floors with different patterns from this find!
