Recently, I discovered some amazing marble and cast iron cafe tables on Craigslist (searching by material - see this post). I have yet to contact the seller as I am not exactly sure where I would put them. But since I have been thinking about them for quite a few days and seeing as they are such classic pieces I think I might have to pursue purchasing. This type of table sometimes referred to as French bistro, cafe or pastry tables can be found in all shapes and sizes both old and new. Crate & Barrel as well as Williams-Sonoma Home sell several variations on this timeless design but if you can find vintage I would choose old over new any day. Marble and iron are both incredibly durable and long lasting materials which makes this type of table great for indoors or out, light or heavy use and transitional in style to work in all sorts of rooms.
