Given the opportunity, we prefer to use solid wood tops on our tables, study carrels, and desks. Combined with our hallmark oil-and-wax finish, it is by far the most time-proven option we recommend, in that it is the most repairable should damage take place. However, we understand that, at times, due to budgetary constraints, design specifications or maintenance concerns, other tabletops options are required to fulfill a customer's needs.
Below are our recommendations should you be unable to specify solid wood tabletops:
The beauty of a solid wood tabletop.
It is interesting to note that original installations of Cololith dating to the mid-1950's are still in use today. Dark and rich as slate, Colorlith is actually a man-made material that weighs 30% less than natural stone. Formed under 400 tons of pressure from Portland cement, silica sand, water, and fillers, it is then steam and air cured. Colorlith resists stains and heat and, though stonelike in beauty and character, has no veins or strata. It will offer years of durable service, and renewal of the tabletop can be done on site.

Stretched budgets and the possibility of defacement sometimes call for the use of laminate tabletops. Our plastic laminate or linoleum laminate tabletops are framed rather than edge banded, providing superior durability and a generous wood edge that will age gracefully. Please be aware, however, unlike solid wood and Colorlith, damaged laminate cannot be repaired.
