Why We Love Marble Console Tables
Marble console tables are the perfect piece of stylish and adaptable furniture that will fit almost anywhere throughout the home. The addition of a luxurious marble top adds another level of sophistication to the already chic and adaptable console table and creates an additional layer of visual interest with the naturally complex patterns of marble. Place these beautiful tables as accent pieces in an entryway or hallway, or secure them behind a sofa to act an anchor piece for the whole room. White marble console tables, gold marble console tables, black marble console tables, we have them all so you are sure to find not only the perfect table for your home but also the perfect color.
Decor that Works Well with Marble Console Tables
Marble top console tables don’t necessarily adhere to one design perspective so depending on which table you choose, there will be different optimal pairings. Overall, these sleek tables tend to have at least some contemporary influences but with additions of wood textures or geometrically shaped legs, they can also highlight industrial and Art Deco styles. Place marble table lamps throughout your home to create continuity with this luxurious material in a subtle way, or make a more dramatic statement with bright and bold marble pendant lights. Either way, supplementing your marble console table with other fixtures that boast marble accents is an easy way to form a cohesive interior design look in all spaces of your home.
Favorite Features of a Marble Console Table
It’s all in the name; the best part of a marble top console table, in our opinion, is the marble itself. Though this material is always elegant and luxurious, it also tends to be cold and heavy. However, when paired with the delicate legs and understated stylings of these sleek console table, it takes on a certain airiness that automatically makes it more desirable and much more delicate. When paired with simple and familiar legs it transforms to a minimalist’s dream table but adds a dazzling array of distinctively chaotic geometric legs and suddenly this marble console table feels right at home with Art Deco decor. No matter the style, these tables always combine fashion and function to form a piece that not only completes the stylistic look of a room but also fulfills a practical purpose.
How to Choose the Perfect Marble Top Console Table
As is the rule with most home fixtures, deciding on which marble console table works for you depends on where you’ll be placing it. If you’re considering a slim and chic addition to your hallway, opt for a table that is significantly taller than it is wide. This will place them at the ideal height, which helps create a higher looking ceiling and opens up the traditionally tight space while also providing an additional surface to display photos, artwork, or another decor. For behind the couch additions, make sure that the back of your sofa and the top of the table sit at about the same height for the most visually appealing display. And, above all, make sure that your table enhances your space without dominating it.
Even with the combination of simplistic legs and light-hearted textures and colors, marble may still seem too heavy for some homes. A glass console table provides a similarly elegant table but in a much lighter material. They’ll reflect the light in your home, creating an almost glittering effect, and they pair well with almost any home decor style. So if marble console tables didn’t seem like the right fit for you, consider browsing our selection of glass console tables.
