Glass living room furniture represents a refreshing new approach to contemporary furniture. Traditionally glass has only been viewed as something ornamental when it comes to interior design. Glass living room furniture can give your interior an instant injection of contemporary style, as well as adding to your existing pieces. With clear, polished glass you don't have to worry about clashes of colour or different types of wood, enabling you to choose the table that suits you.
As well as obvious visual benefits, such as reflecting light, glass living room furniture is also highly practical – food and drink spills are easily wiped away with a damp cloth, for instance.
Glass is often viewed as an extremely delicate and ornamental material with which to make furniture. However, 4 Living's stylish range of contemporary glass living room furniture has all been toughened and polished to create a durable and resilient glass. The glass used in the collection is up to 12mm thick and has polished edges, so they aren't sharp.
