The key features of the lava stone tabletop

What makes the lava stone a winner for creating custom restaurant tables?

Tables are key furniture in restaurants, bars, and hotels, which can add the finishing touch to the room, contributing to reaching the perfect ambiance and décor.
Choosing the best material for restaurant tables is a crucial task, depending on how materials compare in durability, looks, and price.

Let us summarize the key features of the lava stone tabletops.

The glazed lava tabletops are an excellent custom-designed product, which fits into any restaurant ambiance thanks to various design options:

colors and finishes

you can choose your color picking from an extensive portfolio of colors and customize the finishes, among which classic are: satin, semi-satin, glossy, metal, transparent.

shapes, dimensions, edge options

The shapes, the dimensions, and the edge options, they are likewise customizable.

materials matching

The wide-ranging materials matching is crucial for a custom-designed piece of furniture.
The lava surface is a multifaceted stone and can match with glass, textiles, and with wooden or metal frames:

durability

Not last, we can affirm the excellent durability of the lava stone tabletop.
Due to the refractory nature of lava stone, the glazing and firing process makes the table resistant to impacts, to water,  to chemical agents and to warping or temperature fluctuations.
The low-maintenance surface protects the impact-resistant tabletop from moisture and makes it ideal for outdoor use.

In conclusion, the high-quality of material and finishes make sure that the tables still look great after many years of service.
The lava stone tabletop can be an everlasting elegant solution for both restaurants and bar interiors and outdoor restaurant patios or decks.
Out above, we believe the enameled lava stone tabletop is a top solution in hospitality.

The lava stone custom-made coffee tables

Paris-based architect Joseph Dirand appointed Colber International to provide various pieces of furniture for the restaurant, the lobby and the reception area of the Four Seasons Miami Surfside Hotel.
Ranieri Lava Stone partnered with Colber for the coffee tables with the lava stone top, putting into play our expertise on every detail of the made-to-measure furniture: from the stone choice through the enameling process, detailing the craquelé finish effect, testing the frames matching, and attesting the durability of the glazed surface.
Our glazed lava stone, thanks to its durability and to its charming touch, turned out to be the key element in this prestigious project, which was applied to the table tops, lamps, as well as to the champagne bar countertop.
As lava stone suppliers and consultants our mission consists of supporting our partners throughout the creative stages of their stone-based projects, thus bringing the project to the highest levels of achievement, up to the top result.
