smallOver the years, so many Americans have fallen under the spell of glass top coffee tables and one type in particular, Herman Miller’s Noguchi. The company was able to produce the popular piece in the 1940s thanks to Isamu Noguchi, who was a revered Japanese artist at the time. He’s the same man who later went on to create some of the most famous outdoor art in the world, including NYC’s Red Cube and the Sunken Garden. In the years that followed, the public’s love affair with the glass topped table faded briefly, only to resume in the 1980s.

Understandably, all of those years were not kind to some of the famous artist’s glass top coffee tables. As such, there are many tables out there in need of a serious facelift. If your Noguchi coffee table is one of them, don’t worry. At Hutchinson Glass & Mirror, we can repair or replace its glass top to exact specifications. It doesn’t matter if your original one was outfitted with 7/8-inch or ¾-inch thick, plate glass. Our custom fabricators can easily handle both types.

Speaking of which, if you have a replica Noguchi table and want to redesign it in a way that deviates from the norm, we can do that too. For example, we can etch the image of Japanese roses or other designs into the glass or add a bit of frosting. We can also transform its look with back-painted glass or other adornments. Just set up a complimentary consultation and let us know what you want the glass top to look like. Once we have a clear idea of your vision and have had a chance to look at the coffee table’s wooden base, we can manufacture the glass table top of your dreams.
