Marble is not only timeless, but particularly popular this year. Because one of the latest living trends is: naturalness. And here really all natural materials are meant. From wool and silk to wood and rattan to stone – especially marble. The spectacular grain of this natural material has always fascinated us. It not only brings a dignified touch to the interior, but also makes the room more dynamic. Whether it’s a marble coffee table, a side table made from this material or even just a wallpaper with marble prints – everything looks simply stunning.
Round or rectangular: the marble coffee table is making a comeback!
A marble coffee table for all occasions
Sofas without coffee tables somehow seem unfinished and bare in the room. You definitely need the right piece for it. A marble coffee table could be just what you are looking for. Too old fashioned? Are you kidding me? Are you serious when you say that! Marble is once again one of the latest living trends and goes well with almost any interior design style. Don’t think of obsolete design and chunky marble profiles. Modern side and coffee tables made of marble are classy and modern. They bring luxury and coolness into your own four walls at the same time. Combined with brass, chrome or copper, marble looks simply stunning.
Marble and brass – an unbeatable duo when it comes to furnishing
Not only the classic white marble with fine veins is trendy again, but also the stone in all other colors. And green marble is very trendy lately and is preferred by many.
Green marble plus brass equals a premium piece of furniture
A marble coffee table can of course be combined with a marble side table or with other coffee tables made of other materials such as wood, metal or stone. And if you just can’t get enough of marble, then there are also many pretty home accessories and small pieces of furniture made of the popular natural stone or at least in the same look. Coasters, table lamp bases, vases, wall clocks and crockery are just some of the best-selling items.
You can choose marble as a surface for all sorts of tables and dressers in the house
Of course, high-quality marble also has its price. If real stone is sometimes a bit too much of a good thing, you can decorate some elements with marble prints or opt for wallpaper or textiles with a marble look. Some objects such as flower pots and vases, for example, are also great as DIY projects for marbling.
Important tip: Don’t overdo it with the marble elements in the room! Otherwise you run the risk of your home appearing too kitschy and cluttered.

Properly cleaning and polishing the marble coffee table
Marble is always unique. The natural carbonate rock, which is formed in the earth’s interior under high pressure and at high temperatures, has always had its multifaceted grain, which has ensured its popularity since ancient times. Marble belongs to the limestone family, so to speak, and should be treated accordingly. In order to be able to enjoy your marble coffee table for even longer, you should clean and care for the noble surface properly from time to time. Of course, this also applies to the other objects that are made of marble.
When cleaning the marble, also pay attention to the other materials
Of course, you can also hire a professional cleaning company that will make all the marble surfaces in your house shine again. But if it’s just your marble coffee table and a few items, then you can certainly make it on your own. Our tips in the next few lines will help you.
Although marble is a rock and appears quite hard, at the same time it is quite sensitive to some fabrics and substances, such as detergents that are acidic. This also includes vinegar cleaners and fruit acid in general. You should therefore be particularly careful when choosing the right cleaning agent.
Experts advise cleaning marble surfaces dry or with very little water. Marble is thus optimally protected against limescale deposits. Cleaning agents that are chlorine based or more mildly alkaline should be high on the list when cleaning marble. Limescale cleaners and care oils, on the other hand, are taboo.

If marble is well impregnated, you don’t really have to worry about stains, because all liquids simply roll off it. In this way, your marble coffee table is also well protected and will remain completely stain-free over a long period of time.
You should also remain relaxed with small scratches on the coffee table made of marble. A suitable polish, which you apply to the marble using a chamois leather or nylon pad, will help you. Alternatively, you can borrow a hand polisher from a hardware store near you.
So all marble surfaces shine again in their full splendor
Care for and treat your marble coffee table professionally and it will thank you with an elegant shine and modern sophistication. All other marble surfaces such as floor and wall tiles, kitchen worktops and islands can also benefit from the right care.
