Why Consider Buying a Designer Glass Coffee Table
We would all love to own a modern (or not so modern) glass coffee table from a famous designer. Designer products hold and increase there value rather than lose money as soon as you take it out of a shop. They are very collectable depending on how many where designed, and who owns them.
In the current climate you can search on many of the popular second hand websites and find good quality designer glass coffee tables for sale at reasonable prices. These prices will more than likely be slightly more than buying a new table, but if you sell it you will get back the same as you paid for it or even more.
We list a few designers Glass Coffee Tables for you to browse though and to give you ideas for your next modern home update.
Modern Bent Glass Coffee Tables from Zeritalia
They produced these glass coffee table designs in 2008. They are now over 10 years old so will be rare and very hard to find. However, they should hold their value should you ever come across one.
Zeritalia's clean modern bent glass coffee table design feature one of my favorite characteristics. Here are three modern works of Diego Granese who brings us the Zeta shown in vibrant blue, the Live in thick frosted multi-level extra-clear white, black or red lacquered glass from Emilio Nanni, and the Kink from designer Karim Rashid.
Zeritalia was founded 1991 by the industrial group Curvet and is the only company in Europe to offer products in tempered bent glass for customer safety. See the entire collection of Bent Glass Coffee Tables from Zeritalia
Glas Italia The Jewel Toned Coffee Table
Ever a team of optimists, we have a tendency to look at the world through rose-colored glasses. For those who'd like a literal opportunity to do the same through home furnishings, there's the orange and pink tinted glass of the “XX” from Glas Italia.
The jewel-toned coffee table is comprised of two symmetrical Xs (hence the name), on top of which balances a single plane of glass. Looking impossibly ultramodern when setting against a white background, the piece brings about a strong sense of emboldened femininity, the likes of which would appear perfectly at home in a Kate Spade showroom or a funky flat inhabited by an artist or designer in Soho or the West Village.
The 45-degree angles created by the double-X base provide a variety of configurations for shelving — in particular, a small selection of art books or glossy magazines would look effortlessly chic resting against the base panes.
Equally compelling whether it's showcasing reading materials or simply standing bare with a vase of fresh-cut blooms on top, this cool-yet-warm accent piece is the perfect finishing touch for any style maven's fashionable abode.

Polished with a glimmering metallic finish, they cast the iron buttress in a luminosity that adds a soft undertone to dining spaces.
Grounded to produce a flat and matte surface, the smooth sensuality of the oblong glass top is reminiscent of silky porcelain. Eight intricately smoothened layers meld into each other forming concrete glass that extends a lingering elegance to the entire table.
