    This is a bespoke item and a glass top is possible, has been considered and is offered, I have seen it exhibited today and it is beautiful.

    We discussed a glass top and it was considered that not all people like the feel and brash sound of a glass table when putting objects down. I came to the conclusion I preferred the oak after consideration – the plants can get plenty of light particularly if the table is outside.

    The table looked stunning in its own right with/without plant material.

    So why wouldn’t you have a glass top on the table? Better for the plants. Better to see the plants.

    Honestly – folks rush these things to market and never consider if the design is finished.
