Swirling marble patterns are everywhere right now



A centuries-old technique is making a comeback. Marbling, whose swirling, veined patterns recall Carrara quarries and family workshops in Florence, was once exclusively found in antique books, but is now so ubiquitous that Rachel Comey has incorporated a kaleidoscopic print into her collection for Target. Meanwhile, ELLE DECOR A-List designers like Beata Heuman make and acquire pretty marbled objects and fabrics for clients’ homes. If you’re looking to bring the look to your cocktail table or bedside, entertainment virtuosos John Derian, Rebecca Gardner, Skye McAlpine and many more all come up with their own take on the dreamlike, rippling pattern. Needless to say, we are losing our marbles on this trend.


Summerrill & Bishop marbled linen tablecloth

British company Summerill & Bishop, whose flowery and bright sheets dress even the most chic tables, has just launched a new collection of marbled sheets, available in three different patterns.


Sylvie & Atelier Saint-André Perrin

From decoupage to paper, including his own collaboration with Astier de Villatte, John Derian has no shortage of marbled pieces in his shop. The most recent to join its curated arrangement is a collection of marble table additions. These plates, trays and bowls are made in Paris by Sylvie & Atelier Saint-André Perrin using a unique technique called stamping.


Multicolored enamel dinnerware, set of 4

For a more informal option, opt for this four-piece enamel dinnerware set by Bornn, made and designed by a pair of sisters in Istanbul. The soft marbling pattern (we love it in this robin egg blue) belies the steel construction of the whole thing.


Marbled paper shade

Rebecca Gardner, the mastermind behind uber-chic Houses & Parties, has made marble pieces a signature. From lampshades (available in a range of colors and swirls), party crackers, planters, lanterns and recently added divine scented candles, there is no shortage of marbled pieces on her site.


Food for friends

Skye McAlpine, the Venice and London-based chef who has developed a cult following from cookbooks like A Table for Friends (try the lemon roast chicken and you won’t regret it), has teamed up with the company of stationery Paper to create a range of marbled products. The collection includes menu cards, place cards, stationery, and even a customizable recipe journal.


Oh L’Amore candle with white marble candle holder

This fall, Italian brands Artemest and Acqua di Parma joined forces and collaborated with 165-year-old marbled paper binding company Giannini to create a personalized candle set. The candle is packaged with an equally stylish Carrara Home Design marble stand.


Chantico fireplace matches

Los Angeles-based table and decorating site Ark Elements offers a range of marbled products, from fireplace matches to plates and bowls.


Hand marbled conical candles

These hand marbled candles are almost too pretty to use. We love the mixed ensemble (available in a six-pack) or, also available, the aubergine-tinted quartet.


Dappled Velvet Fabric

Scandinavian-born, London-based ELLE DECOR A-List designer Beata Heuman recently launched her new range of marbled fabrics. Dappled velvet is available by the meter as well as in cushions on the Heuman site.


Mulberry Fantasy Square Marbled Velvet Cushion

Designer Susi Bellamy turned to her time living and working in Florence for this lavish couch companion. We love the wine-colored swirl patterns and sleek piping.


Pattern: turtles have short legs

Wallcovering and fabric company Voutsa collaborated with Lambert McGuire Design to create a stunning marbled wallpaper to cover the bathroom walls at New Orleans’ new hotspot, the Saint Vincent Hotel. The same motif, which has become a signature for the hotel, is now found on everything from key cards and pillow cases to luxurious silk scarves in the By George guest shop.
