Glass centre table for living room

A collection of glass-top centre table design ideas that will add a luxurious sheen to your living room and become the centre of attention!

Of all the decorative items you can add to your living room interiors, the centre table is definitely the most important. After all, your sofa and other seating arrangements are always focused towards the centre table. It’s not only aesthetically important for the living space but also functionally valuable.

If you’re trying to make a small living room appear more spacious or want to add an element of glam to a dull living space — a glass centre table is your best bet. It reflects light and brings a sense of openness to a busy space. Moreover, the sheen of a glass-top table will make your living room look swanky and stylish. 

How To Pick The Right Centre Table Shape For Your Living Room?

While most people instinctively choose a rectangular centre table, we suggest exploring other shapes to amp up the style quotient of your living room. For boxy sectional sofas, it’s best to go with a round glass centre table. They break the monotony of the sharp sofa structure and add smoothness to the living room. Plus, their soft edges make them absolutely safe for families with small children.

Rectangular centre tables look lovely with standard-sized sofas. On the other hand, a square centre table with a glass top fits well in living rooms with large sofas or when different types of seating arrangements are assembled together. A glass teapoy table, also known as a three-legged table which is often triangular, is ideal for a loveseat and adds a cosy inviting vibe. 

Now that we’ve looked at the common centre table shapes, let’s dive right into some of the most gorgeous glass centre table designs for the living room. They are practical, functional and perfect to elevate the visual appeal of your living room. Let’s go!
