One thing which technology is yet to reach is the bookcase. It can be a thing of practicality as well as an item of beauty, and as it is probably going to be your second largest item of living room furniture in your home aside from the sofa. These too come in all shapes and sizes, and can vary from plain, usually wooden or metal and glass to make-shift room dividers, with lots of square-shaped shelves to hold books, DVDs, CDs as well as picture frames and figurines.
Nowadays, coffee tables made of glass are increasing in popularity. Primarily, this is because they have a classy touch. Again, the versatility of glass furniture makes it more attractive. Often, glass furniture features metal joints. Therefore, they are sturdy. You can find some tables that are made purely of glass, but they can be dangerous, especially if they are made of the glass that is not tempered.
