Whether it’s the real deal or merely a facsimile, marble is both cutting-edge and classic. Here are seven pieces straight from the quarry, from small tabletop pieces to statement-making furniture.

Quarry Lamps

Hubert cut the bell-shaped shades of his marble pendant lights with extremely thin walls to create a diffuse, translucent light.

Chunk Candleholder

Gray-and-white veining is just as effective in small doses, like a copper-topped candle-holder for the tabletop.

2 / 7

Dibbern Carrara Collection

A Carrara motif is applied to fine bone china for this delicate take on the trend.

Apollo Lamp

The lunar-esque floor lamp features an LED bulb that highlights the material interplay between dark marble and light glass.

4 / 7

Eco Bookends

A roster of illustrious designers created pieces in solid black Nero Marquina marble for Avenue Road. Form meets function especially well in Lovegrove’s sculptural bookends.

5 / 7

Origami Living Table

The colorblock marble and onyx slabs that Urquiola stitched together for Budri’s 5.9 collection are all fragments from pieces broken in Italy’s 2012 earthquake.

Marble Wallpaper

For the look without the weight or price tag of real stone, consider using the Danish retailer’s WallSmart non-woven wallpaper version.
