In honor of Michelle’s one-of-a-kind marble cocktail table (see Domestic Dispatches: The Allure of the One of a Kind), we did some sleuthing and found a trio of appealing options–very similar in looks (both have marble tops with wooden bases) but at different ends of the price spectrum. 

High

Above: The Atlas Coffee Table with an Arabescato (marble) top by NYC designer Brad Ascalon features a solid base made from North American black walnut; the table is currently on sale at Design Within Reach for $1,585.25 (down from $1,865). The table top also comes in black marble and travertine.

Low

 

Above: The Free Range Coffee Table features a honed marble top with a base of solid walnut joined with brass hardware; $699 from BluDot. 

 

Above: A third option, West Elm’s Reeve Mid-Century Coffee Table with a Marble top is currently on sale for $399 (down from $499).
