80 Glass Coffee Table Designs

From Spacecraft-Inspired Surfaces to Cracked Glass Furniture

— April 9, 2013 — Art & Design
When it comes to classic living room furnishings, nothing beats the tradition of a sleek, glass coffee table. Yet with so many inspiring designs and alterations made with this staple piece, these tables can be the most modern and innovative part of a room.

The smooth, glossy sheen of a glass tabletop exudes elegance and style, which is why many hosts like to gather their guests around crystalline consoles for an evening of drinks, snacks and schmoozing. Glass itself can be incredibly versatile, with different color tints and etching patterns that change the look dramatically.

Furthermore, the transparency of glass means designers can go wild with the table stands, creating stunningly fantastic designs that take the average glass coffee table and turn it into a true masterpiece of sculptural art.
