Hey Everyone,

Ok so my style is much more eclectic than following each seasons trends but when you find a trend you like then I'm all for bigging it up. Next season (nearly this season) MARBLE is everywhere from pop up laundry bags to lamp shades!

Mix with copper and I personally don't think you can go wrong. Oliver Bonas has jumped upon this trend and has everything you need from nests of tables to cheeseboards, drinking trolleys (someone buy me one please) to lamps and everything in between.

Marble has made a comeback with a bang and best of all it mixes with different styles from the the very contemporary to the vintage to traditional! Here are a few of my top picks to treat yourselves too:

The above tables are from Coil+Drift and based in Brooklyn. Cant beat the combination of the contemporary metal base with the smooth marble!

This selection is from Oliver Bonas, luckily we have one locally on the Lisburn Road so you can all get your hands on these amazing objects! I already own the pineapple, just need the rest to complete the look!
