Repairing or Repurposing a Broken Coffee Table?

I have a iron coffee table that I had spray painted black to match the oriental style living room we have. Unfortunately, due to some careless rough housing, I ended up falling on the glass top of the table, and broke the glass. I still have all the glass, as well as the frame, but they're sitting in storage.

I want to repurpose it. But the ideas I've found seem to not really fit well with the design. One post on here suggested using plywood with fabric. Which I actually considered, but I'm unsure if that would look alright with a metal table. Any ideas or advice for me?

Attached is what it looked like before I broke the glass

Why don't you just take in the frame and have a new piece of glass put in? Another idea, if you are tired of the glass look, is to have a metal worker make a frame to fit that you can set large tiles into - 12x12 size, for example.

Metal tables with tile tops are very nice looking.

You could measure it and go to the hardware store and have them cut you a piece of plexiglass to fit or a piece of counter top. If you do use wood, you can paint it to match your decor which is what a friend of mine did. She has that exact same coffee and end tables and replaced all the tops when the coffee table top got broken.
