Look around you and there will be no doubt that the marble trend is rocking the home interiors scene this year. This venous streaky stone has been synonymous with luxury since forever, but today, with marble (or even the marble effect) making its way into fashion, accessories, furniture and furnishings, it’s not too difficult to incorporate it into your daily life. And I’m not just talking tiles or table-tops here.
Here’s my top five picks to bring the marble trend into your home. And there’s something for every budget. Drumroll, please!
Price: £7.16 – £7.96
Give your boring cabinets a makeover with these beautiful white marble door knobs. The gold detailing adds a subtle feeling of opulence without going overboard. These make for one heck of an affordable and effortless make-over.
Add sophisticated luxury to your kitchen with this marble, wood and copper cheese board and knives set. The wooden board swivels out to display the hidden knives. This cheese board is compact and chic, and will be the pride of your tableware collection.
Who says your marble accent should only be white? Available in a variety of colours and hues, you can choose the right colours for maximum impact. This two-toned side table from Swoon Editions proves just that. Combining the two hottest trends right now, the marble top with the antique brass effect frame will add a touch of glamour to your home.
This lamp with marble half-moons set in a brass base will look stunning in any room. Whether your style is minimalist modern or vibrant opulence, make the contemporary cool design of this lamp the eye-catching piece in your home.
This ticks every box for me when it comes to the perfect coffee table. Mid-century style, walnut veneer, hidden storage and – ooh – that marble layer. The cool white marble is a beautiful contrast against the warm wood. You can also pop up one of the wooden panels to use as a work desk or a make-shift dining table for one.
Marble oozes timeless elegance. This classic stone is super versatile and can fit with any colour scheme. It can be used as little accents or as statement furniture pieces. More than anything else, it’s more affordable and accessible than ever, so why not add a little luxury to your home, today.
