Marble One of the most popular types of these is the circular Contract Dining Table made in the likes of ones first designed by Charles and Ray Eames. This particular table sometimes is also crafted with a tabletop made of veneer (type of plywood). Bases are usually made of sturdy chromed steel or polished aluminum. A similar model is also made in a square shape.

Fiberglass One of the most significant examples of a table made from this material is The Round Fiberglass Tulip Table designed by Eero Saarinen in 1956. Similar ones like it are also made in marble.

The bases of these tables are usually made of a high-grade case aluminum or other strong material. The shells of certain dining chair models are also constructed of this material.
