Create a Unique Stone International Dining Table
Stone International Dining tables are the cream of the crop when it comes to dining room furniture. No other dining table can deliver such a striking, unique design. These tables allow you to stand out from the rest and create something unique in your home. I did say “create”; this is because there is a huge selection of stones to choose from when buying a Stone International table. This gives you the opportunity to have something distinctively yours.
Below, you can find much more detail about each of the available stone finishes you can choose from when buying a Stone International dining table.
Marbles, Granites, Travertines – All Natural Stones
The stones and marbles used in Stone International product are all natural – presenting all the variations and unique colourings found in nature. Because they are natural products, no two pieces will look alike. None of the natural veins, pores, and variations are to be considered defects, but instead characteristics that make your table on of a kind and enhance its beauty.
Travertine is a sedimentary rock that is naturally porous. Some of the open pores and veins may be filled in manufacturing. The color of the veins and the amount of fill needed depend entirely on the nature of the particular travertine top. Dark veins may randomly occur on the table top or edge of the table – depending only on the mineral content present in that articular piece of stone. In some instances, tiny openings are not filled and remain open. Open pores on the edges of the table are not filled to leave the piece in its natural state.
The brown color of walnut travertine is natural to the stone. As in all stones, the color is determined by the mineral content present in the earth during its formation, and in this stone can vary from beige to dark brown and from light gray to black. Because of the vast variations in color present in this particular stone, we use a clear resin to fill the natural pores. This clear resin enhances the depth of color and provides a relatively uniform shine. Because the fill material is clear, some areas require that we use fragments of the stone itself to occupy the resin. These fragments are handplaced and their size and density will vary. In addition, the seam between the stone and the fill can sometimes leave a notable transition that could be mistaken for a crack. This notable transition is unavoidable when it occurs and does not sacrifice the stability of your table in any way.
Tivoli is a variation of natural travertine. It is a sedimentary rock that is also naturally porous. Slabs are cut against the natural course of the veins and as a result the appearance will show a cloudy effect where darker areas might also be present depending on the mineral content found in that particular piece of stone.
Tivoli Crystallized :
Tivoli Crystallized is a stone treatment achieved combining the Tivoli stone with natural crystals. Crystals are manually placed in the natural cavities and pores of the Tivoli slabs. The surface is then covered with a product especially developed to maintain the natural shine of the crystals. The liquid fills in the cavities and open pores of the Tivoli without affecting the reflecting features of the crystals. The slab will then go through a series of processes with high and low temperatures to harden the liquid used on the surface and it is then polished with a buffer to generate the great effect of the Tivoli Crystallized.
Marbles come in many natural colors and each presents natural veining. The coloration and veining are all determined by the minerals present during formation. Veining can often provide a certain inconsistency in the surface texture of your table top and might even require some fill to be used. These variations and natural markings are to be expected.
Granite tends to be the hardest and most regular stone that we use in our manufacturing. The color and surface are mostly consistent, although natural intrusions are always possible.
Because our tables are all naturally polished, the polish will vary across your table top. This is simply a result of a natural polish on a natural stone and one more way to emphasize the inherent unique beauty of each table.
