To begin- I would expect to pay more for just the slab of glass that makes up the top portion of this table. I have been putting together A LOT of furniture as I just moved and THIS piece was a breeze to assemble. Everything was in tact- the instructions were pretty straight forward and the table was constructed in about 15-20 minutes. The box is quite heavy so that is a consideration if you need to carry it far once it makes it to your doorstep.
Glasses and mugs of various types are an important part of tableware, as beverages are important parts of a meal. Vessels to hold alcoholic beverages such as wine, whether red, white, sparkling tend to be quite specialised in form, with for example Port wine glasses, beer glasses, brandy balloons, aperitif and liqueur glasses all having different shapes. Water glasses, juice glasses and hot chocolate mugs are also differentiated. Their appearance as part of the tableware depends on the meal and the style of table arrangement.
This is really great. It’s got my vote. And thanks for giving cred to Greg Klassen’s excellent work. I'll definitely be trying something like this out. Hopefully it's obvious to folks that those C-channel braces underneath are critical, and that plate glass should probably not be be used as a structural component (despite my doing things like this... - but hey, its 3/4":)
Apart from the cosy fireplace in the house, the main focal point of any living room happens to be the coffee table. This particular type of table is said to be the descendant of the popular European tea table which is usually placed before a sofa and is meant to hold the knick-knacks and magazines along with the coffee cups. These days you can find them in a large varieties such as the elaborately carved wooden ones, or the ones made of glass and chrome, or even the ones in wicker and bamboo.
Through the efforts of the British East India Company, coffee became popular in England as well. John Evelyn recorded tasting the drink at Oxford in England in a diary entry of May 1637 to where it had been brought by an Ottoman student of Balliol College from Crete named Nathaniel Conopios of Crete. Oxford's Queen's Lane Coffee House, established in 1654, is still in existence today. Coffee was introduced in France in 1657, and in Austria and Poland after the 1683 Battle of Vienna, when coffee was captured from supplies of the defeated Turks.
The 2-mm-long coffee borer beetle (Hypothenemus hampei) is the most damaging insect pest to the world's coffee industry, destroying up to 50 percent or more of the coffee berries on plantations in most coffee-producing countries. The adult female beetle nibbles a single tiny hole in a coffee berry and lays 35 to 50 eggs. Inside, the offspring grow, mate, and then emerge from the commercially ruined berry to disperse, repeating the cycle. Pesticides are mostly ineffective because the beetle juveniles are protected inside the berry nurseries, but they are vulnerable to predation by birds when they emerge. When groves of trees are nearby, the American yellow warbler, rufous-capped warbler, and other insectivorous birds have been shown to reduce by 50 percent the number of coffee berry borers in Costa Rica coffee plantations.
The MoDRN Glam Marion Sleigh Base Coffee Table can blend with a variety of modern spaces, but really shines when part of a Retro Glam, Old Hollywood-inspired living room.

Tableware is generally the functional part of the settings on dining tables but great attention has been paid to the purely decorative aspects, especially when dining is regarded as part of entertainment such as in banquets given by important people or special events, such as State occasions. Table decoration may be ephemeral and consist of items made from confectionery or wax - substances commonly employed in Roman banqueting tables of the 17th century. During the reign of George III of the United Kingdom, ephemeral table decoration was done by men known as "table-deckers" who used sand and similar substances to create marmotinto works (sand painting) for single-use decoration. In modern times, ephemeral table decorations continue to be made from sugar or carved from ice.

When considering furniture as a centerpiece, it’s important to remember style, size, and color. Combine only two of these elements because you don’t want to overwhelm. If a glass coffee table is meant to be your centerpiece, make sure there’s something strong and noticeably different about it. The translucence of a glass coffee table means that it won’t take up any visual space. If it’s the right choice, your coffee table will draw attention for its uniqueness.
