The square shape and size makes it perfect for bringing a large room together, making it much more inviting. Despite its size it will not take over the living room and envelop the space because of its glass surface. The glass surface allows the table to accomplish the task of bringing the room together without closing it up too much. The glass distracts us from the table’s size by making the floor visible. This element is also beneficial if the table is placed on a rug that you want to display. Overall, this table adds warmth to the room while also leaving enough open space.
