Durable Etched Glass Finish
The iron content of regular glass means that it has a green tinge when you look at it from a side angle. For our Eve table, we’ve used a super white glass with reduced iron to minimise this green tinge. The benefit here is that you get a really clean and crisp white finish, without a cold green colouring disrupting the soft and hazy focus of the frosted glass.
To create the beautiful frosted glass finish on our Eve Extending Dining Table, we have etched the surface. This works almost like the opposite of buffing a surface to a shine, as it gives the glass a wonderful semi opaque appearance. This method can be done to varying degrees of softness, but we have opted for a super fine finish. You might think the word 'etched' sounds like the surface would be very rough, but this process actually makes the table incredibly soft and a dream to run your hands across.
We opted for an etched glass version for the Eve table for a number of reasons. It isn’t an applied finish that can chip or peel off, so it really becomes an integral feature of the glass. It’s the most durable possible version of a matt finish... what could be more durable than tempered safety glass!
