Set - 120cm Black Portoro Marble Circular Table & 6 Tulip Side Chairs
We doubt there is any better showpiece for the beautiful Portoro Marble than this wonderful full dining set including the famed circular 120 cm table and six matching side chairs. The natural golden veins of the stone stand out like an intricate web against the jet black of the majority of the marble and the overall affect is quite simply stunning.
As a set, this has everything you could ever need, a beautiful eye catching table in a gorgeous black flanked by the famous Tulip Chairs, also in black, but offset with a little splash of colour from the cushions.
There is a reason this Tulip dining set is one of the most popular that we do. The size is literally perfect to seat anything between two and six persons comfortably and fits so well in spaces whether big or small. The chairs can be pushed easily into the table in rooms with limited space and conversely be fanned out nicely for those where there is a little more room.
Both visually and functionally, this dining set is a wonderful blend of timeless design, high quality materials and incredible styling. The alternative look of the black styled Tulip sets give something that little bit different whilst maintaining the original look and feel of this most wonderful of mid century designs.

Our Black Portoro 120cm Marble Tulip Table & 6 Black Chair Set is made with:
Every black Portoro Marble table has a top made from a single laser cut piece of solid natural stone with no fillers or additions. The cut marble showcases a beautiful jet-black rock with wonderful naturally occurring veins of predominantly gold, broken up with a flash of white or mother of pearl.
To support a top of such magnitude is a base made especially for the task in hand. Rather than going for a cheap steel, as one may expect, it is high quality Cast Aluminium that is used to keep the wonderful marble aloft. This metal is so strong and yet light enough to make moving your table relatively easy. This material is also wonderfully sleek and we paint it in three coats with a deep black gloss to set off the top perfectly.
The original Tulip Chairs of the 1950’s were made using a moulded fiberglass, a tough new material during that period of design. Over the years the flaws in the material would become evident as it could become brittle and susceptible to chipping, especially along the edges. Later chairs were developed to use a moulded ABS plastic, keeping the same glossy sheen looks whilst being stronger and more durable. We make our chairs to this same modern standard, a cast Aluminium base with a moulded plastic top fixed by way of a swivel mechanism.
We use a beautiful synthetic material for the chair cushions. The dyes are a deep right colour for all choices and the material is soft to the touch and super strong for many years of use.
