The marble used to create the Saarinen Pedestal Table and others that we offer undergoes a painstaking selection and finishing process as it’s readied to become part of a long-lasting classic.
Only top grades of marble are chosen from quarries. This select marble is first cut into large blocks, then slabs. After stone masters examine the veining and composition of these slabs and decide how they should be further shaped, they’re machined by CNC cutters with water-cooled diamond-coated blades to exact specifications. Finally, each one is polished by hand and coated with sealant to give it a stain-resistant nonporous surface.
This lengthy process requires the expertise of highly skilled craftsmen to showcase the stone’s natural beauty. Please rest assured that your table’s markings aren’t imperfections but rather the very traits that make it a true one of a kind.
