Equal parts elegant and practical, a marble console table has the power to transform entrances and hallways into the prettiest parts of the house.
Marble console tables are often made with a wooden or metal frame and topped with contrasting polished marble for a smooth surface. But more decadent styles are made entirely of natural marble and make swoon-worthy statement pieces that last for generations.
A little more luxe than your standard console, these beauties are perfect for showing off your favourite candle holders and vases, and super handy for keeping your keys, wallet and phone where you can find actually find them!

How To Choose A Marble-Top Console Table
Marble furniture can be expensive, so it stands to good reason that you want to make a smart purchase. Here are our top considerations for buying a marble hall or entry table.
Check the dimensions
Will your table live in a large room with space around it, or does it need to work in a narrow hallway? Checking your dimensions is the first step in choosing the right table. And don’t forget to take into account how much space an open door takes up!
What’s the table’s purpose?
Is your new table just for show or do you need a piece that is both functional and stylish? Consider whether you need drawers to hide keys and wallets, or if you want a clean look just for show.
Consider your budget
If you’re looking for a console table that will be with you for years to come, it’s definitely worth spending a little more to ensure quality that will last forever. But if you’re on a tight budget, don’t worry! Great styling can turn a budget table into a work of art!
Colour and style
Will your table sit against pink wallpaper, or perhaps next to a stunning mid-century chair? Consider your interior style before you choose a table. Look for complementary shades and similar materials for continuity.
Materials (really) matter!
Take into account that marble is a porous material that can stain easily or mark from the acid in lemon and lime juice. It can also chip quite easily, so think about the impact regular use could have on your table before you opt for a marble top.
13 Marble Console Tables You’ll Want In Your Life
As a stunning natural stone, marble gives you permission to shop for an ‘investment’ piece of furniture rather than the cheapest option around. And with that in mind, we’ve dug up Australia’s most beautiful options for you to choose from. Enjoy!
From Florabelle, this timeless mango wood console celebrates the beauty of repetitive arches – and nails it! Measuring 113cm, it’s perfect for entrances and hallways, but it’s absolutely special enough to hold its own in a large space too. The combination of white Banswara marble with limewash timber is a classic Hamptons pairing that we can’t get enough of.
Meticulously crafted from natural elm and white marble, the McMahon is a match made in heaven for coastal contemporary homes. It measures 1.5m in width and boasts statement semi-circular legs with verticle slats.
Embracing the simple charm of provincial furniture, the Providence combines the warmth of grey-washed mango wood with the luxury of marble. We can’t get enough of the grey veining and wax-finished timber – perfect for coastal homes.
A true showstopper, the Veneta from Coco Republic is made entirely of natural marble. It weighs a hefty 85kg, so you’ll need a little help getting it into place – but trust us, it’s worth the effort! Check out the Pegasus for the same finish in an arched design.
Just as perfect for Manhattan Loft living as it is for urban Australian homes, this all-black table makes a big statement. The base uses stainless steel with a black powder-coat finish and the top features ultra-smooth polished black marble with subtle white veining.
Exquisitely crafted using Italian Carrara marble, this oak timber console by Nick Scali boasts huge Scandi vibes. It measures 140cm in width and makes up part of a range that includes matching coffee and dining tables.
Designed and made in Spain using durable marble, the Lachapelle Console Table elevates any kind of space, from bedroom nooks to foyers. We love that it’s created with recycled materials and perfectly sized for tight spaces.
Vintage glamour meets modern elegance in the Heston Console. It has a hand-forged iron frame for strength and longevity and a fabulous thin design that’s just right for narrow hallways.
Another piece made entirely of marble, the Lindy looks just at home in small spaces as large, luxe rooms. The angled legs add loads of visual interest and the soft grey tones work beautifully with modern interior colour palettes.
Made with love using Italian marble, the symbolic Phoenix Stacked Hall Table draws inspiration from the architecture of the local stone yards. It’s resilient, texturally interesting – and it’s absolutely going to be the envy of your guests!
Crafted from mango wood and Banswara marble with a glamorous gold-finished stainless steel base, Freedom’s Recess Console brings understated elegance to living areas. We’re completely in love with the smart recessed storage section that keeps clutter under control and out of site!
From the entryway to the living room, the Westport Hall Table looks incredible anywhere! Made to last, it features a white polished marble veneer top supported by tapered ash-veneer legs.
It’s just like the Recess Console Table – only black! Made with mango wood and a stainless steel base, the Junction Console lets you show off what you love and hide what you don’t thanks to its concealed storage compartment.
