Glass Assets

Hoboken town house

When we have the task of making a room appear larger, brighter and more open, we dig deep into our designer magic bag full of tricks and find a way to bring a small glass into the room – preferably in the form of a glass table. We are certainly not alone with our love for glass. Modern architects have long understood the power of glass and experimented to transform a space. Philip Johnson’s glass house looks much larger than its 1,700 square feet, thanks in large part to Johnson’s “most expensive wallpaper” – the transparent glass walls that made it possible to see the natural landscape as part of the room. This power of transparency works just as well inside the house as it does outside. Whether we’re decorating a Connecticut dining room or a New Jersey living room (pictured above), adding a small glass can have a big impact.

Our designers explain, “A glass table takes up less space and reflects light all over the room, making the whole room feel bigger.” We think it’s pretty amazing that a small table can do all of that!
