Burnell Bonnet. Coffee Table. January 26th , 2018.
But that's really just a beginning. Because the glass top can really be placed over anything that can serve as a pedestal, you can purchase round glass coffee tables that feature large sculptures as the base. If you love the sea and beach, you can get tables with a large dolphin or whale as the base. Or you can even get ones with striking pieces of driftwood found on a beach or a sculpture of a coral reef, complete with tropical fish darting in and out of it.
Similarly there are now "bumpers" available that can be run along the edges of any wooden coffee table. These are heavily padded lengths of material that fix to the surface to prevent injury. They can later be removed when no longer needed. Drawers And Lift Top Lids. Lift Top Lids can also present a hazard for small children. Very often, particularly in the case of wooden coffee tables the lid can be very heavy. Because of this there is always the possibility of small children trapping their fingers. If you select a table of this kind it may be necessary to secure the top until your children are older to prevent injury.
For this reason it is vitally important to check when purchasing a glass coffee table whether it has been made with tempered glass. Not only should you ask the sales assistant but you should seek confirmation that their response is truthful as it can be very hard to tell what type of glass a table is made from just by looking. You might consider it unlikely that it will shatter, but people do fall, particularly children. Even sitting on a table when distracted could cause it to shatter and inflict life shattering injuries.
That is one of the beautiful things about these tables. The glass allows whatever is underneath and around the table to be seen and enjoyed. This is a particularly nice feature if you have a lovely or expensive Oriental rug or flooring. The table remains useful, but doesn't detract from the true star of the room.
