Smoothing Over

Glass table toppers can instantly make anything into a table. In the below examples, the bases are either uneven, fragile or otherwise unsuitable to be tables on their own. However, a glass or mirror top makes them infinitely more functional.

This Moroccan tray table is a conversation-starter and a key to the personality of this room. However, the embossed metal surface makes it exceedingly difficult to put a wine glass on, and you certainly would want to protect a find like this from moisture. So,….a glass table topper makes a wealth of sense here.

The next example is a perfect example of taking a small room – a rental apartment – and injecting it with color, storage, and LIFE. Designer Kelley Proxmire did just that of a newlywed pad of her son and his new wife. She added a bold lime color with this cloth tabletop,….which hides baskets for storage underneath! But, to keep the table’s function, Kelly added a simple glass table topper to keep the tablecloth clean and pristine.

I think this is a genius idea that can be used in nearly an home environment. An additional benefit, is that the glass is heavy enough to hold the tablecloth in place, so your guests aren’t moving the tablecloth when they scoot under the table.

Lastly, this patio table can withstand the elements while smoothing out the surface of the rattan table beneath. Nothing is worse than sitting enjoying a fantastic view, but when you put your drink down, it wobbles and topples over because of the uneven wicker surface. This table topper is the perfect solution. It will also extend the life of the table, because it is reducing the amount of exposure to the weather. Simply stunning.
