Ma­te­rial

Condé Nast House & Garden - - DESIGN SOLUTIONS -

once you’ve de­cided on the shape, size and style of your ta­ble it’s time to con­sider the ma­te­ri­al­ity. Wood is a clas­sic op­tion, play­ing out eas­ily in both an­tique pieces as it does in mod­ern, rec­ti­lin­ear lines, with or with­out the tac­til­ity of the grain, and it can be stained if the room re­quires some­thing more se­ri­ous. Mar­ble tops – es­pe­cially darker vari­ants such as nero Mar­quina and em­per­ador – add a po­tent shot of se­duc­tive glam, while a lam­i­nate one speaks to retro-rad­i­cal sen­si­bil­i­ties.
