A few years ago when I was a responsible adult with a proper job and steady pay, I used to meet my clients around a very expensive “architectural” glass boardroom table. I hated that table. With a passion. In fact, I hate most glass furniture, because the anal retentive in me doesn’t like the fingerprints left behind, and the tactile freak in me dislikes that cold nature of glass surface. So why the **bleep** are we taking glass furniture today? Well… sometimes you’ve got to break your own rules and go places you don’t want to go. I’m completely pushing myself out of my comfort zone with this roundup, and in doing so I’ve discovered some incredible new (and not so new) products that take glass and translucent materials to the next level.
