Key Considerations When Purchasing

When it comes to purchasing a marble dining table, you'll want to consider several factors to ensure that you're making the best decision for your dining space and style. In this section, we will cover the main aspects to consider, such as quality and durability, comfort and space, and colour and finish options.

Quality and Durability

Marble is known for its elegance and timeless beauty, so naturally, you'll want a dining table that will not only look stunning but also last for years to come. At Dendo Design, we pride ourselves on our commitment to providing top-quality furniture that stands the test of time. Prioritise craftsmanship and the type of marble used when making your selection, as these factors can play a significant role in the table's longevity.

Comfort and Space

One crucial aspect to consider is how the marble dining table will fit within your dining space, both in terms of size and the number of guests you plan to accommodate. Measure your room and ensure that there's enough space for chairs and movement around the table. A good rule of thumb is to allow approximately 60 centimetres of space per person to ensure dining comfort.

  • Small dining space: Opt for a round or square table
  • Large dining space: Rectangular or oval tables provide more seating capacity

Additionally, take into account the style and size of chairs that will complement your table to ensure both comfort and aesthetics are met.

Colour and Finish Options

Marble comes in a variety of colours and patterns, giving you the freedom to choose one that complements your dining room's existing décor. You may opt for a classic white marble for a timeless look or choose a bolder option like black, green, or patterned marble to make a statement.

As for the finish, polished marble provides a glossy, reflective appearance, while honed marble presents a more matte, subtle look. Consider your personal style and at Dendo Design, we can help you find the perfect marble table with a finish that suits your taste.

By keeping these key considerations in mind, you'll be well on your way to finding the ideal marble dining table for your home.

Complementing Your Marble Dining Table

At Dendo Design, we understand the importance of styling your dining room to create an elegant and comfortable space. With a marble dining table as the centrepiece, it's essential to select the right dining set, chairs and accessories to enhance its beauty.

Selecting Chairs and Accessories

When choosing dining chairs to pair with your marble table, consider upholstered dining chairs for a luxurious and comfortable seating option. These can provide an added touch of sophistication and complement the marble surface. Moreover, you can choose from a range of home furnishings including cushions and table runners to match the colour and style of the table.

Our range of dining room furniture includes various accessories to accentuate the elegance of the marble table. For example, marble lights can add a harmonious touch to the space, echoing the table's material and style. Additionally, tabletop accessories like elegant centrepieces and decorative tableware can further enhance the opulent aesthetic of your marble dining table.

Lighting and Rugs to Match

Proper lighting is crucial to showcase the beauty of your marble dining table and can make a significant difference in the overall ambience of the room. Consider investing in ambient or dimmable lights that can create a warm and inviting atmosphere, while also adding a sense of refinement. Additionally, pendant lights or chandeliers can offer a dramatic touch, accentuating the marble's natural veining and luminosity.

Rugs have the power to transform a room, and selecting the perfect one to match your marble dining table can make a significant impact on your dining room's appearance. A wool rug, for instance, can add an element of comfort and warmth to the space, while creating a contrast with the smooth marble surface. We recommend choosing a rug that complements the colours and patterns within the table so that it enhances, rather than distracts from, your stunning centrepiece.

Choosing the right combination of dining set, lighting, and accessories can significantly elevate the sophistication of your marble dining table. At Dendo Design, our mission is to provide you with expert guidance and handpick pieces that help you create a timeless, elegant space that you'll enjoy for many years to come.

Marble Table Care and Maintenance

At Dendo Design, we know that our stunning marble dining tables are a long-lasting investment in your home. To maintain their elegance and natural beauty, proper care and maintenance are essential. We've compiled some essential tips for everyday cleaning and long-term maintenance of your precious marble furniture.

Everyday Cleaning Tips

  1. Wipe up spills immediately: Marble is porous, so any liquid can seep in and cause staining. Use a soft, damp cloth to quickly clean spills and maintain the marble's pristine surface.
  2. Avoid acidic cleaners: Cleaning products with acidic ingredients can harm the marble surface. Opt for pH-neutral cleaners or a mix of warm water and mild soap instead.
  3. Use a soft cloth: For daily wiping, use a soft and lint-free cloth to avoid scratching the marble surface.
  4. Dry the surface thoroughly: After cleaning, make sure to dry the table with a separate cloth to avoid leaving any watermarks.

Long-Term Maintenance

  1. Sealing: As marble is porous, sealing the surface once or twice a year can help prevent stains, etching, and other potential damages. This will maintain the table's luxurious shine and extend its life.
  2. Avoid abrasive tools: When cleaning, avoid using anything that might scratch or damage the marble, such as steel wool or rough sponges.
  3. Use felt pads or coasters: To prevent scratches, use felt pads under decorative items and coasters for glasses or hot dishes. This simple step can help preserve your marble table's beauty for years to come.
  4. Re-polish: If the marble surface loses its sheen over time, consider periodically re-polishing it to restore its brilliance and shine.

By following these care and maintenance tips, you can ensure that your marble dining table remains a centerpiece in your Oxford home. At Dendo Design, our goal is to help you create a sophisticated, luxurious, and comfortable living experience that you'll treasure for years to come.

Advanced Materials and Alternatives

At Dendo Design, we understand that some clients may be interested in exploring other materials besides our exquisite marble furniture. As part of our commitment to delivering diverse styles, we're pleased to delve into the advantages of alternative materials, such as ceramic, glass, metal, and engineered marble.

Ceramic and Glass Tabletops

Ceramic and glass tabletops offer a sleek, contemporary appearance with a variety of design options. Ceramic dining tables are known for their heat resistance, making them a practical choice for families with young children. Additionally, ceramic materials tend to be scratch-resistant, ensuring long-lasting beauty.

On the other hand, glass tabletops can lend a sense of spaciousness to your dining room. If you're working with a smaller space, a glass dining table helps create an illusion of openness. Furthermore, glass is easy to clean and highly resistant to stains, making it a low maintenance option. However, it's essential to handle them with care, as they can chip or crack with impact.

Metal and Engineered Marble

Metal dining tables offer a versatile, industrial look that can work in various settings. Often paired with other materials such as wood or glass, metal tables provide strength and durability while maintaining a chic aesthetic. They come in various finishes, from brushed metals to high-gloss polished surfaces, allowing you to match your table to your interior design scheme.

Engineered marble, also known as marble effect or cultured marble, provides a more affordable alternative to natural marble. This material replicates the beauty of marble through a composite of crushed natural stone and resins. Engineered marble is easier to maintain, stain-resistant, and less susceptible to chipping than its natural counterpart. However, it's worth noting that its appearance may not match the authentic depth and luxurious feel of genuine marble.

At Dendo Design, we're proud to offer our esteemed clientele a variety of options when it comes to dining tables. Our curated collections cater to different styles, preferences, and budgets, ensuring that every client can find their ideal fixture to create their dream space.

Interior Design Inspiration

Creating a Cohesive Dining Room Look

At Dendo Design, we believe in the power of a cohesive and well-thought-out dining room design. Marble dining tables can be a focal point for any dining area, providing an elegant and timeless touch. To create a harmonious dining room look, it is essential to consider the colour scheme and design elements that would complement the marble table.

For instance, a grey marble dining table works well with a variety of colours and textures. You could add upholstered dining chairs in a matching hue, or opt for a contrasting colour like bold red or navy blue. Accessorise the room with a statement chandelier or pendant light and a plush area rug to complete the look.

In contrast, a white marble dining table lends a clean, minimalist feel to the space. Pair it with sleek black or chrome dining chairs, and choose modern artwork to grace the walls. Enhance the atmosphere by incorporating metallic accents and a few well-placed indoor plants.

Trends in Marble Dining Tables

In recent years, several trends have emerged in the world of marble dining tables. One of these is the combination of black marble with a polished chrome base. This pairing exudes modern sophistication, making it ideal for those who seek a contemporary dining room style.

Another trend is the use of mixed materials, such as pairing a marble tabletop with wooden or metal legs. This approach creates an interesting juxtaposition of textures and materials, resulting in a unique and captivating design.

Here are a few popular styles of marble dining tables available at Dendo Design:

  • Rectangular Tables: Perfect for larger dining spaces, these tables offer ample room for family gatherings and dinner parties.
  • Round Tables: Ideal for smaller dining areas, round tables create a more intimate and cosy atmosphere.
