Round Glass Kitchen Table

Round Glass Kitchen Table

The kitchen table is where your family and friends gather around for coffee or for meals. It's around this table that relationships are reinforced. A round glass kitchen table best promotes this feeling of being bonded together. There are two major reasons for choosing a round glass table.

First, its seating capacity is a little more flexible than rectangular tables. Sure, you would normally seat four people around a regular-sized round kitchen table. But, for instance, if someone unexpectedly joins a foursome for coffee, lunch or dinner, the round table would easily allow you to accommodate the new arrival. The fifth person would not feel awkward but rather welcomed into a cozy and friendly circle.

The second reason would be the ease of cleaning and maintaining a glass table top. Cleaning up spills on the table is easy when it is made of glass. You can just blot out the spill and wipe it off. Your mugs, cups or glasses will not leave permanent rings on the table if you forget to use coasters, too. Spilled wine or other beverage will also not leave permanent splash stains unlike on varnished or painted wood.

Make Your Office More Professional With Glass Table Tops and Glass Signs

Make Your Office More Professional With Glass Table Tops and Glass Signs

Projecting a professional appearance is an important part of any business. You want any potential or current clients to feel that your company has what it takes to get the job done in a quick and efficient manner. Having nice-looking and durable office furniture can go a long way toward giving off the qualified, trustworthy vibe that your company or business wants to project. Many agree that an office's conference room is fundamental in establishing the good reputation of a business -- from executive wooden tables and leather office chairs to the latest technology.

Protect Your Investment With Glass Tops
Many conference room tables and nice desks are made of wood, a quality material, but that can be damaged easily over time. Wood is a soft material and is subject to nicks, dents, and scratches from a variety of office materials. Simple things like paper clips, staples, lamps, computers, and more can wear down or damage wood over time. Because so many high-quality executive desks are made of wood, it's an important investment to protect. Consider getting glass table tops to cover up and protect the wood underneath.

Glass tops are quite durable, and protect the wood from not only nicks and scratches, but also spills and UV light damage. With a conference table glass top, you'll be able to rest assured that your company's conference table will remain beautiful and retain its value for years to come. As an added bonus, many companies can etch your corporate name and logo into the glass for an impressive, elegant touch. Remind clients of your company and brand with a beautifully carved logo they can see during meetings.

Glass Coffee Tables

Glass Coffee Tables

It wasn't too long ago when glass coffee tables were reserved for nobility. Now, thanks to modern technology, glass tables have become much more inexpensive. This affordability does diminish it class, and glass coffee tables are one of the most sought-after pieces of furniture.

The Gambaro brothers created the earliest glass coffee tables -made of Venetian crystal - in the early 1900s, by applying the skills they learned after decades of glass making. But people' s fascination with glass started even earlier during the Renaissance period when Murano introduced intricate creations that were reserved for royalty. The craftsmanship of glass coffee tables has since diminished because of modern glass-making technology, but the use of glass in both d├ęcor and functional processes still remains and continues to flourish.

You can now have the same elegance enjoyed only by a select few back in the day. When you buy a glass coffee table, you instantly add sophistication to any of your rooms.  Before you pick a design, remember to choose glass tops that are at least a quarter of an inch thick - they are more durable and practical for everyday use.

Tips for Using Glass for Tabletops

Tips for Using Glass for Tabletops

There are several uses of glass for tabletops. The top surface of wooden furniture can be protected from scratches and nicks by placing glass on top. They can be used for dining tables as well as end tables and coffee tables. Glass can also be used for outdoor patio furniture tabletops. It comes in a variety of sizes and shapes, as well as in various thicknesses to accommodate any use.

When choosing glass for tabletops, choose the size, shape and thickness that suit your needs the best. If you use glass that is too thick, it will be too heavy for the purpose you need. It that is not thick enough can break under stress. Typically, the thickness that you need is determined by the size of unsupported glass. The larger the size the thicker it needs to be in order to stand up to heavy use.

Protect Your Wooden Furniture by the Use of Glass Table Tops

Protect Your Wooden Furniture by the Use of Glass Table Tops


A dining table is one of the most frequently used items of furniture in any home. All breakfasts, lunches and dinners that are served on it provide the possibility of damage to the soft wooden surface. Damage to the wooden surface makes your furniture look dull and significantly older than the other pieces of furniture in your house. Damage caused by scratches and spills could not be more effectively prevented by any means than by the use of glass table tops.

Glass is a hard, durable material which is used to cover and protect the top surfaces of delicate wooden furniture, such as side, patio, kitchen and dining tables or even a chest of drawers in the bedroom, a console table in the hallway or a computer desk in the office. They are available in different shapes, sizes and thickness. The heavier and taller the furniture item is, the thicker the glass table top should ideally be.

Round Glass Coffee Tables, A Classic Updated

Round Glass Coffee Tables, A Classic Updated

In the 1950s, coffee tables were extremely chic and every house had at least one, if not several. Few living rooms were without these tables, and often, if there was a family room or playroom, the sofa grouping there would have one too.

While traditional wood tables have always been popular, round glass coffee tables really came into their own during this period, as modern and contemporary furnishings came back into fashion.

Today, round glass coffee tables remain popular, largely because they allow a room to remain open looking while still being a statement piece. That's because coffee tables with glass tops or even tops and sides can break the mold in terms of defining what a coffee table should be.

For instance, you can purchase lovely tables that allow you to showcase your interests. Some can be as simple as a wood or glass cube underneath with a spacious glass top above. If the cube is glass, you can usually add a valuable collectible or sculpture inside, letting people enjoy both the table and a work of art at the same time. Many people will fill the bottom with sand and seashells or even create a terrarium under glass.

But that's really just a beginning. Because the glass top can really be placed over anything that can serve as a pedestal, you can purchase round glass coffee tables that feature large sculptures as the base. If you love the sea and beach, you can get tables with a large dolphin or whale as the base. Or you can even get ones with striking pieces of driftwood found on a beach or a sculpture of a coral reef, complete with tropical fish darting in and out of it.

That is one of the beautiful things about these tables. The glass allows whatever is underneath and around the table to be seen and enjoyed.
