    Why We Love Marble Coffee Tables

    Marble coffee tables have been a staple of well-appointed living rooms for many years, but the proliferation of new designs has sparked something of a renaissance for them as living room furniture in family homes. Stone always makes a statement, whether it's used in flooring, counter tops or modern accent tables, and marble is about as good as it gets. Traditionally, marble surfaces have been polished to glass-like smoothness, which is great for office furniture, but rougher consistencies and odd shapes fill a niche of their own in more offbeat roles, such as entryway and bedroom settings. Warm lighting plays nicely over the generally pale surfaces of marble tables, with romantic candles bringing out the cooler tones of white and cream stone.

    Where Marble Coffee Tables Look Best

    Coffee tables are classic living room pieces, and marble coffee tables are the top of the line in living and family rooms. Modern accent tables with stone tops also make great accent furniture for entryways and other transitional areas, such as enclosed porches. Smaller tables are useful as office furniture, though some finishes are easily scratched, and accent furniture with stone facades shouldn't have printers or other heavy equipment on top of it. Like most modern tables, marble-topped coffee tables can be found with a riotous variety of bases, from solid wooden posts to elaborate chrome tangles and even some brassy struts that play beautifully with common living room lighting.

    Marble Furniture Designers We Love

    Several talented design houses have brought out at least one line of marble tables to make their mark on it. Menu, for example, creates everything you would expect from a European studio, with stark wire frame legs and thin marble slab tops cut into smooth ovaline shapes. Knoll uses top-10-percent marble from quarries in Italy and Slovenia to craft highly polished tops for their modern accent tables. Gubi has made simplicity of design its trademark, crafting accent furniture with circular and oval tops and simple bases, while Modloft experiments with multi-level and other unconventional designs. Blu Dot's Super, Swish and Plateau tables feature such simple lines that they feel like an organic part of almost any room they're in.

    How to Choose the Best Marble Coffee Table

    Marble coffee tables are a major part of a room's look, so it's important to find one you're satisfied with. The first step in picking out a marble-topped table is to choose the room it's going into. Living rooms are a good place for the largest modern accent tables, while hallways and other tight spaces need something more compact. Rectangular tables look great against walls and in corners, while round and egg-shaped tables are ideal for placing by sectional sofas and love seats. Stone tables can be found in less conventional patterns, such as amoeba and angular designs, which generally work best standing alone, away from other furniture that could distract attention from their unique shape.

    Other Considerations

    Marble coffee tables are sturdy, strong and beautiful. Because of their classic grandeur, these handsome pieces provide quiet dignity to whatever setting they're in. On a practical note, modern tables' tough tops and usually very solid bases resist wear and can be cleaned with a single dusting pass. For modern accent tables, marble tops are close to the top of the list of options for many buyers.
