Sometimes less really is more! For me there are a few classic, essential pieces that will work in almost any interior, and a mod, clear cocktail table is one of my very favorites. I have always loved the clean, airy look of glass or acrylic and their versatility makes them a perfect pair with most other furniture styles - in fact, I especially love them contrasted with a few antique or traditional pieces. Plus, clear cocktail tables are idea for displaying books, decorative objects and trays and can be styled and re-styled anytime you want. They are also fantastic for small spaces, offering a table surface without adding visual clutter to the room. Would one of these transparent beauties would work in your home?
I actually love both the glass and acrylic options equally! CB2 makes a great Peekaboo Clear Coffee Table, and I love the large scale of this Zuo Glass Table, and this Acrylic Coffee Table has clever spots to stash magazines. For those of you in SGP we do have CB2 (yay!) but if you are in the market for a glass one, there is this classic at Lush Lush or this Infinia Table at Forty Two.com.
