Good Question: Replacement Glass Tabletop?

Good Question: Replacement Glass Tabletop?

"I need help", wrote Ben. "I have had a cute coffee table from Room and Board for years and am quite attached to it. It's a metal structure with two rectangular glass surfaces. Over time, the glass has become chipped around the corners and looks a bit dingy.

Where, oh where do I find replacement glass? I've searched high and low with no success."

We're figuring Ben checked first with Room and Board, but if he has we're surprised he's still looking - they offer replacement glass tops (clear and frosted) in nearly any size. They are 1/2 inch thick and the square/rectangular tops can be customized to nearly any size, based on 1" increments. The PDF with price info is here - just scroll down to the "Create Your Own Top Program" section. Round glass tops are also available, in diameters from 12" - 84".

If Ben has already crossed Room and Board off his list, here are a few other sources in Chicago:

  • Costello Glass and Mirror, 2232 S. Wabash, 312.842.6660
  • Ashland Glass and Mirror Design, 3926 N. Ashland, 773.472.3700
  • Glass Doctor

    Tips and sources from anyone who has done a glass replacement in Chicago would be appreciated - let us know in the comments...
