There’s a plethora to choose from across the high street, designer and online stores and whatever trend you use as your styling guide, there’s a pouffe to suit the look.

home: trend [ marble coffee tables ]
Marble is strong trend for so many homewares and furniture, it’s been high on the radar for a while and is set to stay there this year. It’s such a great material, it’s practically become a new neutral. It can sit amongst many strong interior trends and work with many home styles. It goes perfectly with a minimalistic white interior but is equally a great way to break up and brighten an interior using strong jewel tones – layered and dark. Marble can come in black, white or sandy tone and this lends itself to an easy add in to designing a room.
A nice easy way to introduce or use marble when styling a room is with a coffee table. And there is an absolute abundance of high street, designer and online stores offering a huge variety of styles, silhouettes, sizes and prices.
Designs often mix marble tops with metal framework base either quite minimal or with a geometric influence or wooden legs, wooden frames and even matching it with another material like wood or plastic and segmenting the top surface.

They say ;
Really Well Made offers the very finest design-led contemporary furniture and accessories with a Scandinavian influence. We established in 2012 because we felt there were many retailers in the UK representing poorly conceived design products. We envisaged a collection of items that simply work well and transcend passing fashions. With that in mind we constantly search for design products which express a strong, timeless & minimalist aesthetic that will stand the test of time.
