It’s true as long as they’re designed with spatial concepts in mind. In art, space is conveyed in many ways and similar may be said for coffee table designs. The most common methodologies involve color, size and overlay as well as linear, two and three-point perspective. The list of other methods includes, but isn’t reigned in by concepts like spatial complexity, constructed space, textures, atmospheric and amplified perspective.

Let’s take this see-thru trunk on Pinterest as a prime example. Despite being large and functional, it doesn’t seem to overcrowd the living area. That’s because it’s see-thru of course. The items strategically placed on top of the glass trunk and the glistening, gold hardware also seem to be floating in the air, which adds something more to the space. Undoubtedly, it isn’t the only way to use glass to create an illusion in the living room. For proof, check out this glass river tabletop and galvanized tub table, also found on Pinterest. Just imagine how stunning the glass river table would look placed on top of a deep blue carpet or other flooring that sports a water-colored hue. As for the glass-topped bucket, that would look good in a number of settings too.
