Transparent dining furniture is tremendously versatile. It can be ethereal and subtle in magnificent surroundings, create a dramatic centrepiece in an understated interior or fit seamlessly into a colourful family room. The current issue of Living Etc features a graceful clear acrylic dining table and chairs (September, p.53), but at a price which is out of reach for most people. This post suggests some similar dining tables and chairs which are available at fraction of the cost.
Penny Banks Victoria Dining Set
Penny Banks dining furniture offers huge potential to mix and match. Tables are available in round, square and rectangular shapes with a choice of table top colour. Transparent chairs are available in a range of colours – if placed in a sunlit area these will create an interplay of coloured shapes projected onto surrounding surfaces. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, the Penny Banks Victoria dining set is ideal for conservatories.
Julian Bowen Kudos Dining Set
The Julian Bowen Kudos 4 seater dining set features a round glass table top on a sturdy chrome finish pedestal. Although it can comfortably seat four people, the Kudos table is compact and well-suited to smaller rooms. The black bentwood chairs are comfortable and practical, bringing a classic feel to this modern design.
Julian Bowen Boston Dining Set
The Julian Bowen Boston dining set has a large rectangular glass table top which can comfortably seat 6. The hardness of the glass surface and chrome frames is offset by luxurious Faux Cuir chair seats and backs. An upholstered panel beneath the table top provides storage as well as acting as a modesty panel for people who feel uncomfortable with clear table tops.
