European dreams: Where to find the marble furniture pieces you’re seeing all over Instagram

where to buy marble furniture

As many of us know, beginning the process of furnishing a new home, or arguably, the slightly more challenging task of refurbishing an existing space is no easy feat. Particularly, when you're making design and interior decisions that you're hoping will withstand the better part of a lifetime. While deciding between a green velvet couch and a more understated alternative presents its own set of difficulties, the most important decision lies in your foundation pieces – the furniture that sets the groundwork. With this in mind, finding a skilled craftsman to bring your vision to life is part of the challenge; especially when it comes to a material like marble, and where to buy the best marble furniture.

Although it might seem like marble furniture is having a real moment right now, as we know with such materials, not all pieces are made equal. It's important to understand beyond the aesthetics. How is the marble sourced? Do you prefer a more polished or less refined finish?

Whether you have your eye on that marble coffee table you're constantly seeing on your Instagram feed, or are looking for a more unique, custom-made piece hailing from international waters. Here are nine of the best recommendations for where to buy marble furniture.

As far as sourcing marble furniture, west elm is a great place to begin. The online furniture retailer has an endless offering of marble pieces; regardless of which room you're looking to decorate. One of its main specialities is in the way of marble tables – coffee, dining and side-table size. If you have been on the hunt for the gold metal-base marble consoles you've seen in the homes of all your favourite Parisian influencers, west elm speaks your language. While the website certainly offers its fair share of statement marble furniture, you'll also be able to shop more subtle decorative pieces like marble-based lamps, coasters and bar carts.

If you're the type of person who finds their interiors inspiration through Instagram, you would be very familiar with the unmistakable marble coffee tables from Australian-based brand, En Gold. For those who love a fusion of textures, you'll find a forever piece with En Gold. For the Estrella collection – arguably one of the brand's most popular collections – En Gold partnered with the original artisans who created the designs over 30 years ago. Which, is why the tables, buffets and plinths they sell have a unique vintage quality. The company also has sustainability front of mind, consciously creating limited quantities of its products to support slow interiors and limit waste. Due to the natural quality of the stone and marble En Gold uses, no two pieces will ever be the same; so you will always have something that feels entirely yours.
