The Marmo Table combines the simplicity of minimalist modern furniture with the grandiose nature of opulent Victorian pieces. Overall, it leans towards the former while the use of a luxurious marble tabletop pays tribute to the latter. A fine piece of furniture, the Marmo Table adds a decorative element to living spaces without going overboard in the slightest.

Created by furniture and interior designer Ólöf Jakobína, the Marmo Table is made using a slab of Bianco Carrara marble, which contrasts neatly with its thin wire base. As Cool Hunting beautifully describes, "The cold rock and splash of color come together in contemporary Icelandic form, referencing the brightly colored architecture that peppers the country's stark, barren landscape."
