i'm not normally a fan of glass-top dining tables for a number of reasons: they are impossible to keep clean, are prone to breakage or crackage due to my clumsiness, and you can see through to everybody's legs and feet while you eat. i am not sure why this bothers me, but it does. however, i might be willing to make one exception to my rule for the ponte table by strala, since the glass top would allow me a view to the gorgeous wood frame below. the solid oak base is impeccably constructed, and my favorite detail is the way those pieces come together at perfect points to support the table. now that's one pair of legs i don't mind staring at while i eat. see more here.
