Both Marble and Travertine are natural stones derived from limestone but are formed under different circumstances.
Marble is formed when a sedimentary carbonate rock, such as limestone, undergoes metamorphism from exposure to heat, pressure, or a chemical reaction. The veining in marble is actually created when mineral impurities are present during this metamorphism. For this reason, minor pits and fissures are to be expected and are not faults within the marble but rather a part of it.
Travertine is also a form of sedimentary limestone but is formed around mineral spring deposit and is characterised by irregular pits and holes across its surface when left unfilled. It was widely used in ancient Rome, including the Trevi Fountain, and is still common today. Its name is a reference to Tivoli in Italy, the home to Travertine quarries. Whilst Travertine naturally has many holes in it, we do offer smoother options with our Filled & Honed and Filled & Polished Travertine both of which are filled at the quarries with a buff- coloured resin which may vary in tone from the stone.
We work with 2cm thick marble and travertine slabs as standard. Some items may use a thicker material which will be highlighted.
For now, we are an online only business which helps us to ensure our prices are competitive however, you can order a box of samples to see the stone in person. The samples will give you an overall impression of the material but as natural stone varies from slab to slab, we cannot guarantee an exact match.
Absolutely. We can create pieces to suit different sizes and colours. If you have a design in mind or would like to talk about options, please get in touch here.
Whilst our tables are sealed, prolonged exposure to water, oils (including candle wax) or liquids and foods that can stain such as coffee and beetroot should be avoided. To maintain the beauty of your new piece for as long as possible we suggest using placemats and coasters for cups, plates, and dishes to avoid water rings and heat marks. We recommend re-sealing your table every 6-12 months using a marble impregnator.
To clean your item, wipe the surface with a soft damp cloth and follow with a little warm water or a non-abrasive light neutral detergent before wiping dry with a lint-free cloth.
Applying a natural marble wax across the entire surface of your piece can add a little extra protection. Extra caution should be taken to avoid using coarse cleaning materials such as scouring pads and acidic or abrasive cleaners. For further information, please read our Natural Stone Care Guide.
All Made to Order and Bespoke items are delivered by our white glove couriers. Our tables are supplied with the top and bases separately for ease of movement which our couriers will assemble for you in-situ.
Please be aware that, when we deliver furniture to you, we do not use any packaging. Rather, each piece is transported carefully wrapped in blankets which are removed by our specialist couriers. This allows us to minimise waste and ensure you are not left with an extra task of disposing of packaging. It also gives you an opportunity to inspect your new pieces before the courier leaves.
Regrettably, we are not able to arrange for items to be packaged for storage or onward transfers.
Yes, we do. Please email us with your company name, company registration number and website to apply.
Production Lead times are approximately 8-10 weeks for smaller pieces and 10-12 weeks for dining tables and bespoke items. Once your order is ready, we will be in touch to arrange delivery. Due to circumstances outside of our control, the dispatch date of your made-to-order item may change. We will be in touch via email if your order is affected.
For made-to-order and bespoke items, you may cancel your order up to 24 hours after placing it. After this, a 50% cancellation fee will apply to made-to-order pieces, although for bespoke items, no refund can be given.

Deliveries are grouped and the date is set by our couriers in order to keep costs down for you.
We have partnered with The Bespoke Courier Company to offer a white glove delivery and installation service within the UK. To keep the cost down of this specialist service, our deliveries are grouped together and take place once a week on a day set by the courier company
The delivery day will be confirmed 48 hours prior to delivery. Deliveries take place between 8am - 5pm and a 2-hour window will be specified 24 hour in advance. If you are unable to accept delivery on this day, we will offer you the following delivery date. If you are still unable to accept delivery on this date, we may need to charge a storage fee whilst we arrange a suitable delivery date for you.
It is your responsibility to ensure that items will fit in to your property. Before placing your order for a furniture item, we recommend that you measure the intended space along with all access points within your property to ensure that we're able to successfully deliver your item. Our tabletops and bases come in separate parts for ease of transport but do keep in mind turns and bends in stairs and corridors as larger tabletops may not always fit.
