DISCOVER THE MARVELOUS APPEAL OF MARBLE SIDE TABLES

Losing your marbles over marble side tables? Consider yourself part of a club with clout. When it comes to accent tables, few possess the mesmerizing beauty of real marble side tables. Whether you’re looking for something ultra-modern or more classically-inclined, marble side tables run the gamut, making it easy to find one that fits the bill.

Looking for something sculptural with Post-Modern appeal? Try a plinth marble side table composed of an exuberantly patterned marble. Since plinth marble side tables tend to be stylistically simplistic (essentially, they’re a box), they’re among your best options if you’re looking to introduce a specimen marble into your space. The cube-like formation will allow the marble to take center stage.

If a plinth table feels too cumbersome for your interiors, consider a pedestal marble table. The king of all marble pedestal tables is, of course, Eero Saarinen’s Tulip Table designed for Knoll. Featuring a round top hoisted atop a stem-like pedestal terminating in a circular base, the design can be found with dozens of different customized marble tops. Making the hunt even more exciting, Knoll currently produces the design with a variety of different top sizes, too. If you prefer the look of a marble pedestal side table without a base made of contrasting material, there are plenty of versions to choose from that utilize just marble. LIke plinth marble side tables, these pedestal tables made completely of marble are ideal for showcasing a next-level marble.

Not all marble side tables are for modernists, either. Try tracking down a marble end table with a drawer if you’re looking for something a little more traditionalist—or even Mid-Century Modern—inspired. Neoclassical bureaus and buffets are commonly topped with marble, and with a little digging, it’s possible to find smaller-scale Neoclassical side tables with marble tops. Since most of these tables will be well-aged enough to consider legitimate antiques, pay special mind to the condition of the marble. On the more contemporary end of the spectrum, Mid-Century Modern marble side tables often come equipped with drawers, too. Most feature dark wood bases with tapered legs and marble slab tops and can be procured in both circular and rectangular shapes.

What Different Kinds of Marble Can Marble Side Tables Be Made Of?

Marble variations number in the hundreds, believe it or not. So the list below is an extremely abbreviated look at the types of marble used for side tables. No matter what kind of marble you opt for, it’s worth noting that marble is a porous material that will hold onto stains. So especially if you have a white marble side table, watch out for those red wine rings!

Carrara Marble Side Tables

Perhaps the most commonly used marble for furniture, Carrara marble derives from Tuscany. While Carrara marble is traditionally thought of as being white, it can also be bluish or grayish in color. It typically possesses linear veining that has a softly blurred appearance. In contrast to Calacatta marble, which showcases a similar color story to Carrara, Carrara is more subtly patterned.

Calacatta Marble Side Tables

Also originating in Italy, Calacatta marble is understood to be more dramatic in appearance than Carrara. For one, Calacatta marble side tables tend to be purer white than Carrara which leads to higher contrast veining. Secondly, Calacatta’s veining is typically considered to be larger-scale. Calacatta is also more likely to feature deep-gray-almost-black and gold veining.

Black Marble Side Tables

Black marble side tables will generally be one of two black marbles: Levadia marble or Nero Marquina marble. Nero Marquina marble is more common and originates in the Basque Country of Spain. It is a bottomless black stone scrawled with bright white veins. Depending on the particular slab, these white veins can be so plentiful that they almost overwhelm the black background.

Pink Marble Side Tables

Pink marble side tables may be among some of the hardest-to-find marble side tables, hence they’re also among the most coveted. Pink marble variations are plentiful, but Rosa Portugués is perhaps the most widely used pink marble. Rosa Portugués can vary in hue from terracotta pink to or grayish-cast pinks. Its veining is usually longitudinal and black or brown in color.

Are Travertine Side Tables Considered Marble Side Tables?

Although travertine and marble are both types of limestone, they feature different chemical makeups and therefore are considered different stones. That said, both began their lives as limestone that underwent a metamorphosis due to direct exposure to drastically high pressures and temperatures. Typically, travertine has experienced additional heat and pressure, hence, leading to its different appearance. Although travertine may appear similar to marble at first glance, it’ surface features more a striated pattern than veined pattern. It is also not as smooth and often displays pits, pockmarks, and troughs.
