When my husband and I were researching our kitchen renovation a couple years ago, marble countertops were the clear frontrunner, but we were nervous about the inevitable etching. So we paid visits to every marble-topped bar and marble-furnished ice cream parlor we could find, cocking our heads to the side, peering down long polished surfaces to examine the damage left by countless drippy glasses and plates of spaghetti. We ended up with marble and we’re very happy with it.
The Tripod Coffee Table is an exploration of material, texture and form. The base and top were designed to fit together as one, with the bottom curve of the stone seated neatly in the inverse curve of the wooden legs. This piece is artisan-made in our New York workshop from hand selected black walnut and the highest quality of Calacatta marble.
