Why a stone top coffee table is a forever piece

From marble to granite, slate to concrete, stone is a powerful and eye-catching material with innate durability, strength, and presence. Used across the home in small details, you can create an appealing and earthly atmosphere because of its natural textures, tones, and veining. From elegant kitchen worktops to statement sinks to the more decorative, everyday items like marble pestle and mortars or decorative concrete bowls, embracing stone's quality can make for an impactful and timeless element in your home. 

'Stone is also a great choice for enhancing a room's design, adding a special touch,' says Thomas Kligerman’s Kligerman Architecture & Design. 

'Texture and solidity can be applied to any style, and its versatility allows for a multitude of uses. Whether it's for a natural stone accent wall, a fireplace surround, or an accessory such as a coffee table, stone can help create a clean and strong atmosphere.'

A stone-topped table is a coffee table trend that can look refined and elegant. It's a way to introduce a high-end material in a smaller and more decorative way. 'A coffee table is a practical and aesthetic addition to any room - providing structure and bringing an interior style together,' says  Jo Littlefair, co-founder and director at Goddard Littlefair. Jo recommends trying new things when it comes to coffee tables. As well as materiality, she recommends looking to new shapes to introduce something different to your home - an approach we saw with the best glass top coffee tables, too. 

'Completely taking away any perception of a coffee table always being rectangular or square is liberating and immediately opens up a more creative approach to styling a space. Choosing striking or unusual furniture shapes can become a focal point within a space, it allows you to bring some personality in whilst retaining elegance and style.'
