Marks & Spencer goes modernist with its clear glass coffee table

Modernist

Does the design above look familiar? Well, regular readers might recognise it as a modernist classic, specifically the Pietro Chiesa Fontana coffee table we featured a few weeks back. Except this isn't that item – it's the Marks & Spencer clear glass coffee table.

The original is an Italian design classic, dating back to 1932, whereas this one is 'inspired by Italian design', according to the Marks & Spencer website. We think we know what they're saying. The proportions are different (the M&S table is certainly lower), but the shape and effect are almost identical, with that clear glass and curves edges bringing modernist style to your living room at a high street price.

That price is £199 right now, but only for the next week. So if you want it, act now. And if you like look, M&S also has occasional and console tables in a similar style.
