Featuring glass

Lets take a look at glass. The most familiar type of glass, used for centuries in windows and drinking vessels, is soda-lime glass, composed mainly of silica with some soda ash, lime and several minor additives. The history of creating glass can be traced back to 3500 BCE in Mesopotamia, which is now part of the Middle East.

Advantages of glass furniture

Glass furniture is easy to maintain and with a little cleaning liquid it shines as if it is brand new. The newness of glass furniture even after number of years is simply catchy.

Durability

Glass furniture is extremely durable. It doesn’t require any serious maintenance effort. You are simply advised to polish the glass surface, and it stays clean, without getting damaged. Unlike other materials that can fade with time the superior shine of glass furniture will always remain.

Illusion of spaciousness

Another very remarkable advantage of using glass furniture is its transparency that makes a room look as if there’s lot of space available. The living space in a modern house should be open and glass is often used as a way to enhance this aspect as well as natural light, through the inclusion of wide glass windows.

Seeing more

One of the significant features attached with glass furniture is its transparency, and that is one reason glass furniture is in such great demand. Glass partitions in the office provide a clear view of what is happening elsewhere.

Using glass furniture for a sophisticated look

Using glass furniture has become a fashion these days in offices and homes. Most offices prefer using glass furniture, as it gives a sophisticated look, and makes an office look refreshing and lively.

Modern designer glass tables

Modern designer glass tables usually have a smooth and streamlined form and the glass itself enhances this feel. Glass can be cut with gently curving and minimal lines to create a lighter, more contemporary look.

Panton dining table

The Panton dining table features a carbon steel frame with a round clear or colored glass top. They can seat 4 to 12 guests, depending on the size selected. The table bases are superbly crafted from stainless steel range and through its combination with the glass an elegant and uncluttered modern feel is achieved. The elegant geometry of the piece is simply stated through the thoughtful use of three legs, meeting in the middle at an angle, and then forming a cup shape to meet and support the glass top.

They are made in Brazil by MODLOFT. The story of MODLOFT originates in Venice where they began importing and distributing the very best contemporary furniture. MODLOFT focuses on a unique blend of urban modern style with practical affordability.

Calvin Table

Calvin tables emphasise rectilinear lines to give a highly polished perfectionism. The tempered glass top is attached to the two polished metal frames on each end via UV bonded plates to maintain stability and style.

Soho Glass Dining Table

The minimalistic feel is clean and smart. The Soho range is designed for people with a busy lifestyle and so ease of maintenance was kept in mind, coupled with a stylistic brilliance to impress. With a stainless steel frame and a tempered glass top, it's good to start with this piece when creating a long lasting versatile outdoor furniture range.

The table is available in three sizes. Stainless steel is commonly known as rust-free steel (RFS) or inox. This is a ferrous alloy that increases the corrosion resistance of a substance by the addition of chrome and nickel.

Lighting

Modern design uses lighting where most of the structures have a light and almost translucent look. The use of pin lights, up lights, wall lamps, spotlights, lights with dimmers and others are common and feature glass. Here are some light features that focus on the glass bulb.

Atlas Suspension Lamp

Architectural lighting often takes advantage of the use of glass such as in the Atlas Suspension Lamp with its funky snake like curves alongside a vertical thin wire.
The stainless steel and teflon joint transform a common bulb into a spotlight, enveloping it following its outline. Taking its nudity as the starting point, it dresses the bulb up with a transparent suit that also gives the lamp the added benefit of lightness. It is sold in different versions: hanging, wall, ceiling and standing.

Industrial glass bulbs

The impression of an artist’s Manhattan loft can be enhanced with a single industrial-chic glass bulb on a cord or with several clustered as a chandelier. Specialty Roost filament bulbs come in a variety of shapes and sizes with carefully crafted corkscrew inner wiring and workshop cages to add to the semi-industrial dimension.

Generating a warm glow at a low level light, Roost Filament Bulbs and Cloth Cord Sets have a unique filament pattern when illuminated. These bulbs burn at a more energy efficient rate than normal bulbs and are made from the same technique and materials used in early Edison bulbs.
