There are quite a few reasons to prefer a glass top coffee table instead of a different type and these reasons have to do with things like looks, visual impact as well as versatility. A coffee table with a glass top can blend in more easily whereas one with a solid wooden top, for example, needs to be coordinated with something else in order to become part of the decor. At the same time, a glass top offers the impression of more space in the room which is a useful when you have a small footprint home.
Alwa One Big is a table that truly celebrates glass and its unique particularities. As you can see, it has a thick glass top with bubbles and streaks and these details are characteristics of handmade glass and not imperfections. These details make each table unique and special. Also, each table top features slight variations of color, also related to the manufacturing technique. The table is designed by Sebastian Herkner.
The glass top is not meant to be the center of attention in the case of the Parobol table. The top is actually meant to be as simple and as transparent as possible in order to highlight the sculptural beauty of the base. The base is made from thermo-formed Corian and the glass top touches it in three small points, appearing to be floating.
A classical combination is that of glass and metal. The two materials combined complement each other in a unique way, creating very sleek and delicate designs. This is a nice example showing how striking a series of clean geometric forms can be.
Similarly, this set of tables highlights the similarities between glass and metal, both being strong and durable but also able to look very delicate and elegant. Consider either of these tables for a modern or eclectic interior or even for a patio or garden setting.
The thin metal frame is meant in this case to be as sleek and delicate as possible in order to allow the table to keep its transparent and minimalistic look. At the same time, the golden accents coordinate with other accents in the decor, creating a glamorous ambiance.
Speaking of glamorous settings, a stylish coffee table like this one can easily become the focal point of any living room. The sculptural base is the main attraction of the design and the round glass top reveals its wonderful geometry allowing it to be admired from every angle.
