Marble tables, due to the substantial weight and eye-catching look of the material, almost always lend a luxe look to a space. The stone itself is easily wiped clean with a soft cloth, making marble tables perfectly suitable for kitchens, dining rooms and breakfast nooks. Black marble is decidedly moodier. It looks scholarly as a desk in the home office and sophisticated as a coffee table in the living room. Looking for a hue that falls somewhere in between black and white? Carrara marble is the most heavily greyed type. Historically, carrara marble has been used in both decor and as the base for countless sculptures, making it feel simultaneously familiar and sublime. Looking to add marble accents to your home but lack the space for a large dining or coffee table? Start small and tuck a marble accent table next to the crook of the sofa arm.
