Atlas consists of two walnut tables – a coffee and side table – available with a white or black marble or travertine top.┬áMarble was a big trend in 2012 and I don’t think we’re anywhere close to being done with it moving into 2013. Perhaps travertine (or other natural stone) will be the next big thing?

The collection was inspired by the Greek mythological character of the same name, condemned for eternity to carry the heavens on his shoulders. Or, in this case, heavy stone. This looks to be a new classic in the making.
