Round marble coffee table with brass pedestal base in front of turquoise sofa and dark blue wallsToday’s furniture round-up is a collection of covetable, contemporary marble coffee tables.  I have it on good authority that 2017 is all set to herald the rise of the opulent and sophisticated “new modern” trend, as a counterbalance to the raw industrial and natural Scandi looks that have been so prevalent lately.

Not that the latter are disappearing – oh no.  In fact, I think luxurious materials such as marble, lacqueur and metallics look their best when mixed in with at least a little touch of something more rustic or industrial.

I’m mulling over the idea of a new coffee table, plus a few other tweaks, to inject a whole new look into our living room.  And I like the thought of marble and contemporary metallics bringing a more luxurious feel to the space.  So here’s my choice of six of the best contemporary marble coffee tables to kick off the new year.

Contemporary marble coffee tables

Gianni mid-century marble coffee table with white marble top and gold leafed legs1. The pebble shaped marble top and slender, angular gold-leafed legs of the Gianni Coffee Table ooze mid-century style.

Graham annd Green small round Agate Natural White Marble Coffee Table in Scandi style room setting2.  The Agate Natural White Marble Coffee Table from Graham and Green makes a feature of its distressed metallic legs.  I like the way this tones down the old gold colour, and the round shape would work well in small spaces.  This is also a great example of mixing luxe materials with natural textures such as stone, natural wood and sheepskin.

3.  Another contemporary marble coffee table that would be perfect for small spaces is this Marble Pedestal Coffee Table by West Elm at John Lewis.  The white marble top sits on an antique brass finished spun metal pedestal base, a great space-saver in small rooms.  And again, although the colour palette in this room is rich and opulent, the industrial wooden console with natural stoneware vases, and the artworks casually clipped to the wall all serve to stop the overall look being too glossy and slick.


contemporary white marble coffee tables from Habitat4.  The collection of Nestor contemporary marble coffee tables from Habitat is an exercise in stylish simplicity.  Choose from classic white or striking green marble to team with the linear black metal base.  One of each, please.


Katrina square marble coffee table with white top and geometric black metal legs5.  The Katrina contemporary marble coffee table has fresh white marble teamed with a dark metal base formed from delicate, geometric angles which give the table an open and airy feel.  (For luxe lovers, the Katrina is also available with a shiny brass base – it does look lovely!)


Gubi round TS marble coffee tables and side table in coloured marble6.  And finally, another black geometric frame but this time with a choice of sizes and coloured marble table tops. The Gamfratesi TS Round Table by Danish design brand Gubi comes in black, white, green or brown marble.  Coloured marble is also predicted to be popular in 2017, and whilst I love the classic white the dark, foresty green is also talking to me.  What do you think?

  1. I really like the John Lewis table… also keen to understand where the peacock blue sofa is from in that picture?

    Hi James, it’s a lovely table isn’t it – I particularly like the brass/marble combination. The marble side table is part of the West Elm at John Lewis collection, and though JL also sell a selection of West Elm sofas and the Crosy is quite similar and available in 2 shades of blue (here’s a link that particular one doesn’t seem to be among them.

    I just checked the West Elm UK website ( and that particular sofa doesn’t seem to be there either. I’m wondering if, as it’s a US brand, the product shots were done in the States and only a limited selection of their full product line is avaialable here.

    Sorry not to be more help, and good luck with your search!
