30 Glass Coffee Tables that Bring Transparency to Your Living Room

One of the key components of any living room is the coffee table. It is set right in the center of all happening, usually standing right next to the sofa, holding a tray of baked goods, books or other decor pieces. It is an element that has a big functional purpose, but how it looks plays a very big role. It can be a piece that completely matches the rest of the interior or the one piece that stands out. A glass coffee table is incredibly flexible with its ability to blend in and stand out at the same time. It brings elegance and transparency to the room, sending the message of purity and simplicity.

Glassy and Eye-Catching Designs

Since glass is transparent it does wonders in broad daylight. The sun rays go right through it, resulting in a well lit room that isn’t weighed down by the furniture but actually feels bright and luminous. If you like your space to be filled with as much light as possible, almost giving away the illusion of being outdoors, a glass table should be on your top priority list!
