Pinzoni notes that while they use a wide variety of stones, colors, and shapes, the preference lends to black Marquina and white Carrara, often combined. “We are always exploring new ideas, for instance, we recently used a beautiful Brazilian Azul Macauba marble combined with white Sivec, marble and the result was spectacular,” says Pinzoni.

Pinzoni feels the versatility and classic nature of marble allow a marble coffee table to be styled in various décor.

When it comes to the sofa a marble coffee table will complement, the sky’s the limit. “It’s our job to find the perfect match in terms of colors/stones and shapes,” says Pinzoni. In terms of shapes, they can start with a classic square marble coffee table style and can then range from rectangle, circle or even a triangle for example.
