We use inlay work in making beautiful WHITE MARBLE INLAY TABLE TOPS.These marble inlay table tops are used as DINING TABLE TOPS , coffee table, side table. Other color of marble we use for making inlay table tops is black, green, pink and yellow. Marble inlay table tops come in different shapes--rectangular, octagonal, square and oval. The material used for white table tops is mainly Indian white makrana marble of which Taj Mahal is made.For Black table tops we use black Cuddapa, for green- Baroda green and for yellow we use Jaisalmer stone. Makrana marble also comes in pink color. We have made many Pietra dura Italian design table tops in black marble in the past which can be seen in our black table tops section.
We also make BASES with inlay for the table tops which usually are of the same shape and color as the table top and come with or without an inlay pattern. If we use the inlay pattern then the design will normally have the same flowers and color combination but differs in the pattern from the table top as the design is adjusted for vericality and when the table top is placed on the base they make a beautiful set. We have made many bases for the table tops which can be seen alongwith the table tops and also in our bases section.
