Glass Dining Tables vs Wood Dining Tables
Why would you choose glass dining tables over say a chunky solid oak version or a warm cherry wood? The answer – glass dining tables and chairs tend to have more of a contemporary feel, particularly if you know how to choose the right ones. They also blend in with most furniture styles and shades since, let’s face it, they can be pretty invisible if you want them to be. They’ll also cater for a large number of individuals without it feeling as if the table has taken up your whole room. On that note, here are a handful of the glass dining tables we’d like to see ourselves dining at some time soon:
Large glass dining table
Make sure your dinner party gets off to a flying start with this Airport Etched Dining Table from Italian luxury designers Calligaris. Contemporary, stylish and with a 260 cm extended capacity to seat up to 10 diners at once, this stunning addition to your open plan living area will never go unnoticed.
Priced £1578 and available in a choice of matt black, silver or white ceramic or glass dining table top and chrome, satin steel or black nickel frame to match your existing décor, this is a table which is certainly going places.
Round glass dining table
Glass dining tables and chairs can blend the divide between the traditional and the contemporary. A combination of eco-friendly wood and glass, the Saturn Collection Dining Table is one of the stand-out items in bespoke furniture designer Tom Schneider’s new collection. Handmade and with unrivalled attention to detail, this table brings a delightful curved element into your home and is an excellent way to soften all those straight geometrical lines of existing furniture. Priced at £1090 it undoubtedly adds an eco element to any room. The round optiwhite glass dining table top has a lacquered underside which can be coloured to suit.
Intimate glass dining table
With its striking pedestal legs in matt black chrome, the Joust Dining Table will always prove an eye-catching centre piece regardless of where it’s placed. The clear tempered glass dining table top, measuring 12 mm in thickness, is the perfect surface for showing off the sculptured base of this artistic and very contemporary piece of furniture. Price just £899.
Contemporary glass dining table
Staying on the subject of stunning sculpted bases, the Tonon – Mac Dining Table comprises a number of soft touch polyurethane shells, available in a range of up to four colourful primary shades as well as four more muted variables. The shells on this very contemporary dining table sit surrounding by a self-supporting steel frame on which these glass table tops are secured. Available in smoked grey, extra white or clear glass and priced from £1320 for the smaller size, this is undoubtedly another magnificent centrepiece for any room.
Industrial dining table
A small but very chic piece of furniture, the Mario Dining Table is 180 cm wide and perfect for couples who enjoy an intimate dining experience, or for smaller ‘couples’ type dinner parties. The design here is mid-century while it wouldn’t look out of place in an industrial loft look interior either, thanks to those striking black lacquered angled metal legs. These glass dining tables are toughened with safety glass which are 8 mm in thickness. This is a dining table which would unobtrusively blend in beautifully with most interiors.
