Glass Dining Tables
Provide a sleek, sophisticated spot for bonding over meals with family by having a glass dining table in your home. In addition to complementing your existing decor, glass dining tables, as well as glass hallway tables and glass living room tables, also give you a handy place to set down your remote, magazines, cuppa, flower vases, boxes, art and knickknacks.
Glass Dining Table Features
If you occasionally have a need for extra seating at your table, look for extending tables or those with a drop leaf to accommodate more room, instead of buying a bigger table that takes up more space. Glass dining tables with drawers are ideal for storing essential items and keeping them at hand. Also, consider folding tables that take up little space in compact form, as you can put them away after use, while the flat-packed choices save on shipping costs and are easy to set up.
Glass Dining Table Styles
Versatile glass dining tables look stunning in a variety of interiors, be they traditional, transitional or contemporary decors. For instance, for your dramatic Hollywood Regency parlour, a gilt-edged glass dining table is certain to enhance its decadent glamour. On the other hand, a glass-topped wooden box or barrel in a vintage-style crafts room draws interest in its distressed base, while a glass dining table looks light and stylish in a modern kitchen. For a most satisfying afternoon tea service for two in your garden, a richly-coloured Moroccan mosaic table made from sea glass brings warmth to the occasion.
The Beauty and Benefits of Glass Furniture
Measure the visually arresting appeal of glass furniture against its fragility and high maintenance to determine whether it's the right choice for your home or office. A glass dining table does not rust, fade, mould or take on odours, but it smudges quickly. As long as you don't break or scratch it, and give it the occasional polish to retain its shine, glass furniture is extremely long lasting, maintaining its refreshing and vibrant look for many years. Take advantage of the airy, transparent nature of glass to make a small or cramped room appear more spacious.
