Sometimes design is all about the confident whisper. Nothing but the bare essentials here. Sublime stainless steel or powder-coated steel in white or black gently supports your choice of top. Bases: Stainless steel: stainless steel White and Black: powder-coated steel.Tops: Marble: honed Carrara marble stone slab Walnut: plain-sliced walnut veneer Assembly required.Marble is a dynamic and natural material. This means that distinctive natural marks may occur in the top and will vary from table to table. This is part of its intrinsic beauty. We recommend that the honed marble top be sealed on occasion (every year or two) to avoid/delay any surface changes. An impregnating sealer easily available at most hardware stores is your best bet.
