Q: Should I protect a brand new Saarinen marble top tulip dining table with tempered glass? I have craved this table for years and almost had a heart attack when my husband sat down and started eating pasta at the table without a place mat.

I live in fear of staining or chipping the marble but we do intend to use it as a dining table. A table cloth would cover it completely, which is a waste and it wouldn't prevent chipping.

We're also looking for colorful affordable artwork to put on the wall that would make this area pop. I think it is a bit empty now. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated...
