Advice Welcomed for Glass Top Dining Table

Posted by DKinCA (My Page) on

I've done some searching here and on the internet and haven't a clue as to good quality brands/manufacturers who make glass top dining tables. There seems to be so much garbage on the net in the $300-$700 range that I would be afraid the table is made with inferior materials.

My criteria is a rectangular top, around 44 x 72+ inches, preferably metal/steel or wrought iron base, and decent/good quality. Budget for table only is $1,200 to $1,500. Less $$ is always a plus. Chairs will be purchased separately.

RE: Advice Welcomed for Glass Top Dining Table

I'm looking into a glass dining table myself. I've found the cheapest glass tops here. Combined with one or more stone table bases I think it'd be a good looking table. I also ran across "Starphire" glass, which is a low-lead glass made by PPG. Here's a thread about fish tank owners comparing standard glass to Starphire.

Here's a photo comparing the two:

Try Ashley furniture- a manufacturer not a store. Many stores carry this brand. Got my 42 inch tempered for 99.00!
