The families that owned a glass coffee table in the past seemed to be among the older homes or maybe a family that might be more upwardly mobile. The glass coffee table seemed to give the impression of expensive antique or the reflective beauty of the glass gave the appearance of a bright and cheerful appearance.
Over time, things have changed and they are no longer what they were. Today anyone can own a beautiful glass coffee table. Why is this? The biggest reason is the price, the cost of these tables have become less expensive so that there are more families that can now afford to own this type of table. Glass coffee tables are now available so middle-class families can now find attractive pieces that are functional and give the feel of class and good taste. All of these coffee tables will show signs of style and elegance.
Most glass coffee table frames will be made from brass or some shiny type of material. The reason for this is simple, these types of shiny materials are reflective and increase the beauty of the table and definitely draw attention to the table. Brass is really good at highlighting the brightness and gleam of the glass.
It is still possible to find antique glass tables that will last a long time, but, it is not really necessary. There are really attractive looking glass tables that are being produced today that will satisfy any homeowner. Just add a brass-accented coffee table and discover the difference it makes to the room, even the entire house.
A major advantage of the glass coffee table is the versatility of the piece. The tables look really nice without being overpowering. They will fit in with almost any decor and in any room in the house. The table will give any room a feeling of elegance without being overbearing.
There is one real problem with a glass table. My pets, (cats) look at the reflection and will play on the table therefore the top is always dirty. I also have grandchildren who also like to look at the reflection of the table so it was always getting dirty.
Now being a guy, this did not bother me but my wife was constantly cleaning the table. Because it would get the
glass dirty I was not supposed to put anything on a glass surface. We finally solved that problem by using coasters and I can happily report that it only took about two years for me to become trained. I am watching a football game, I really didn’t care where I put my adult beverage, but I finally learned.
With my grandchildren it was a little more difficult, we even tried keeping them away from the table but that didn’t work at all. My wife finally gave in and we waited for the kids to grow up. I don’t know why she didn’t let me go but Oh, well.
Despite these distractions and negatives the glass coffee table is really a great piece and will enhance any home!
