Traditional Look

With its beveled glass top and slim tapered legs, this oval table makes a small dining room feel much more spacious. The base features a graceful shape to give the room a classic touch. When shopping, don’t forget to look for glass tops that resist scratching and streaks like this one.

Glass and Aluminum

This dining table has a very cool, crisp and contemporary aesthetic. The brushed aluminum legs and frame contribute to its clean lines and European styling. From every angle in the room, the glass top seems to hover magically just above the frame.

Angled Leg Beauty

This glass table offers a new slant on dining. The angled legs in dark espresso are the perfect contrast to the glass tabletop and metal bracing. Put this oversized table in a city loft or great room—it can easily handle open concept spaces.

Retro Round

This cheeky round table has a sleek design that features a fiberglass base in a matte black finish. The style echoes some of the iconic pieces of mid-century design with its modified tulip base and beveled glass edge.

Curve Appeal

The splayed nickel legs and round glass top of this dinette table creates the perfect foil for retro design or to give an elegant room a mod touch just for the fun of it.

Modern Natural

This vintage table pairs a substantial glass top with dual marble bases. The hexagonal twin pedestals were crafted from black marble with a hint of green veining. The natural stone adds visual movement to the table’s modern lines.

Glass and Wood

Warm, wood tones of the Breuer chairs balance the lightness of the glass and metal dining table. The same look is repeated in the built-in wood and glass shelving, giving the dining table greater visual importance.

Linear Look

This glass-topped dining table is sophisticated in its simplicity. It takes center stage with thick beveled glass placed atop an espresso base consisting of a series of stacked slats that form an open cube. The Bauhaus-inspired table lends itself to contemporary and modern design.

Fresh Contrasts

The featured dining room houses all the elements that are hot in the world of interior design today – white walls, wood flooring, rustic ceiling beams, a shelving niche and the ubiquitous cactus. A fresh addition to the room is this rectangular glass and nickel dining table. It contrasts nicely with the wood surfaces and looks right at home with the squeaky clean walls.

Layered Top

This ultra modern glass dining table was designed by the homeowner. On each end, two pieces of glass are positioned over angled glass pedestals. The full size tabletop is placed on top with spacers separating the layers of thick glass.

Woodland Reflections

Give your small dining room a big design punch by using a round glass top table with a unique base. This traditional style features a carved wood pedestal base that’s compact enough to comfortably accommodate a dinner party of five.

Double Vision

This stunning dining table brings modern sophistication to virtually any eating area –whether in the kitchen or the dining room. The piece actually consists of two square tables put together to create one large rectangle. Etched glass creates opaque center panels and a clear band around the perimeter of the tabletops.

Dramatic Bevel

Hi-ho silver! The brushed nickel finish of this glass top dining table can be paired with a variety of chair and furniture styles. Weathered zinc chairs work great with the simplistic design of the rectangular tabletop. A pronounced bevel gives the unpretentious table a classic air.

Amalfi Style

This distinctive dining table has a casual feel and contemporary presence. The styling looks as though would be right at home on the Amalfi coast. This glass table is designed for both indoor and outdoor use. The weathered iron powdercoated base and tempered glass top make it a natural for outdoor living.

Modern Luxury

Sleek lines can’t completely disguise the true design origins of this dining table. If you look closely, you’ll notice a very familiar silhouette – that of a chrome and Formica kitchen tables from the 1950s. Take away the Formica and add a glass top and you have a table that exudes modern luxury.

Clean Lines

Minimally furnished spaces call for simple furniture. This glass table is the perfect choice, creating a stylish air in a sparsely decorated dining room. The classic oval shape gets a modern update with a tempered glass top and slender chrome base.

Marbleized Glass

Not your ordinary glass dining table, this design has a couple of special things going for it. The first is durability. Its glass/resin composite top will not chip, scratch or break. Secondly, it’s extremely stylish. The opaque marbleized effect is a step up from ordinary frosted or etched glass.

Chrome Accents

This contemporary dining table features clean lines and smooth stainless surfaces to impress family and guests. The modernistic design of the round glass top makes it a perfect choice for a breakfast nook or formal dining room.

Contemporary Traditions

Industrial chic meets traditional style. Skirted chairs are not typically something you would pair with a super modern glass dining table, but somehow they work together. The extruded aluminum legs attach directly to the glass tabletop to create a truly unique profile.

Wrought Iron Bistro

Tendril-like legs intertwine gracefully to create the base of this transitional glass top dining table. Its weathered bronze metalwork and polished edge convey a warm, comfortable vibe for both traditional and contemporary decor.

Eat-In Addition

The homeowners wanted a vacation home that optimized living space so they decided to forgo a formal dining room. Instead they opted for an eat-in kitchen with a view to the pool. To keep the space light and open, they brought in a glass table that works beautifully with the contemporary kitchen elements.

Classic Splendor

A glass table is not necessarily the first thing you’d expect to see in a classically decorated dining room. The formality of the cane back chairs, the weighty buffet and traditional chandelier create pleasing contrasts with the shiny glass surface that seems to go on forever.

Cozy Table

Tight spaces usually call for a round dining table, but the designer here decided to go in a different direction and shape. This large, square glass table does occupy a lot of real estate, but doesn’t feel overwhelming. It looks great with the striped swoop dining chairs and offers seating for six.

Trendy, Set, Go

This modern glass dining table was originally an office desk that was picked up for next to nothing at an estate sale. The chrome sawhorse frame and simple honed-edge desktop make a perfectly trendy dining spot.

Tubular Frame

A stainless tube frame and funky glass top creates an unusual dining room addition. Paired with curved cutout chairs, the overall look is decidedly fresh and innovative. Keeping other items in the space to a minimum is key to maintaining the integrity of this design.

Al Fresco Class

Outdoor dining is a favorite leisure pursuit the world over. This glass dining table is perfect for those who love dining al fresco with plenty of style. The powdercoated aluminum frame is covered in faux resin wicker in a dark coffee hue.

Cross Bars

Check out a completely different design concept with this cross base dinette table. The geometric base is on trend and finished in shiny stainless steel, making for a striking counterpoint to the cool, tempered glass top.

Custom Perfection

Sometimes interior designers commission custom pieces to fit a space. This gorgeous glass top dining table in walnut is a brilliant companion to the art installation, soaring ceiling and expansive wall of windows. The straightforward design makes this dining table suitable for a variety of decor styles.
