How our tables are fabricated

To produce these tables, solid slabs of volcanic rock are cut to the size and shape required and fired in the kiln.

After which any stone imperfections must be repaired by hand, to ensure perfection on the final finish.

The top face of the stone is then glazed to provide a smooth, sealed surface on which the design can be painted.

A final transparent glaze is then added and again the table is fired. The ceramic technique used to produce these tables is known as majolica.
This process produces an extremely durable, resilient surface that is able to withstand all climates to -30 degrees, with no damaging effect. They are also very resistant to the knocks and scrapes of every day use. In commercial applications, for example, in restaurants, hotels and bars, they will not stain, and are impervious to hot plates or even cigarette burns. So whether your table is for the dining room or patio, conservatory or gazebo, its unique combination of strength and beauty will grace your home for years to come.

All of our wrought iron table base's and chair's are zinc-galvanized then powder coated to a charcoal finish to resist rust and scratches, just wipe clean with a damp cloth or mild detergent to maintain them. Rubber feet add stability and protect surfaces.

Our tables are ONLY made in Deruta, Italy; the sizes range from as small as concierge size desk to the massive 8 foot round tables. Most of the sizes have many options which can be included, such as Lazy Susans or built in barbecues.

All of the designs which are represented in our patterns sections can be reproduced in any size, although some designs look better in the round shape and others in square or rectangular.

On the glazed ceramics surface you can spill coffee or tomato juice or red wine and all you need to do is to wipe it out, just like a regular plate.

It is also possible for us to reproduce any custom design and size if needed, please contact us to discuss any requirements you may have.
