Just marble-ous! This hardy stone has long been a staple of kitchen and bath designs, but as an accent to lighting and accessory pieces, marble simply rocks any room in the house. We love this cool material as a sturdy addition to floor and table lamps or bringing an industrial edge to home décor. Plus, the variety of marble types means there’s plenty of different looks that are equal parts lux and au natural.
Marble works especially well in unexpected places, like paired with shiny metals or mixed with wood. And as a small accent to larger pieces, marble is an affordable addition to any space.
Why We Love This Look
Marble is making more appearances in contemporary lighting and accessory designs. At once minimal and elegant, we love it in a mostly-white room or combined with a stately walnut table. The material is popular among mid-century modern designs, like Achille Castiglioni’s Snoopy Table Lamp by Flos, or as an option for Charles and Ray Eames’ Wire Base Low Table by Herman Miller.
