Satin or shiny?
Both are coated marble options, making them more maintenance than natural marble. Shiny is more of a glossy finish, while satin is a bit more matte. Shiny is more luxe, and satin is more subdued.
There are many other tabletop options available for special order - granite, multiple marble finishes, different wood veneers - and our sales team can help you find the perfect fit for your home. Contact them at (800) 260-8420 to build your dream table!
The Saarinen Dining Table is an effectively beautiful structure, but never a showy or unnecessary one. From Saarinen himself: "The underside of typical chairs and tables makes a confusing, unrestful world. I wanted to clear up the slum of legs." To accomplish this, the Saarinen Dining Table is on a pedestal, unencumbered by the "slum of legs," and easy to use for the whole family.
It is strongly recommended that placemats be employed when using the table. As with any piece of furniture, we recommend that you use adequate heat protection when placing hot dishes on your table.
Additionally, this table has a metal base. Lift table when moving it or place floor-protecting pads on the bottom of the base to ensure that your floor is not marked or damaged.
