Coffee tables are a living room staple that can effortlessly inject some pretty serious style. Case in point: the marble-topped table. On trend at the moment but undeniably a classic, they will put you firmly "in style" for a long time to come. We love the sleek and modern appeal they lend living rooms of all sizes and found examples for every layout and budget: round, square and hexagonal examples across a wide range of price points. These are our 13 favorite marble-topped varieties for 2016, priced from right around $100.
Marble coffee tables aren't exactly budget friendly, so going faux is a great option if you want to stay on the lower end of the pricing range here. Plus, Sauder's option currently has a 4.5-star customer rating, which is pretty solid in our book.
Okay, so this isn't technically a coffee table, but with its hexagonal shape, it can easily be expanded if you buy multiples to whatever shape and size works for your living space.
This pretty slab table has been in CB2's playbook for some time now, and with good reason. The silhouette is simple enough that the materials really shine (its iron base is super sturdy!) and at 42" long, it hits that not-too-big not-too-small Goldilocks size that's just right.
Round (and square) coffee tables are perfect for sectional sofas, making this Mara table an ideal pick if you have that seating setup. Its bright white marble and neutral-colored solid oak legs would perk up your trusty dark gray, brown or black couch (though would also look equally stunning with saturated jewel tones.)

Another stunner from CB2, this time featuring a chrome base that works nicely to offset warmer materials, like that vintage walnut media console you may have that we're hypothetically quite envious of.
Breaking the mold of square, rectangular or round, this egg-shaped table gets an extra jolt of pretty with gilded legs.
Aah, the esteemed Saarinen table. Beautiful, sleek and versatile, but at nearly $3,000, it's quite the investment. Though $500+ isn't a bargain-basement price either, Lippa's version of the classic design is certainly more attainable and just as attractive.
The box-frame coffee table seems to have universal appeal, probably because its open body works just as great in small spaces as it does expansive rooms. West Elm's high-contrast version comes in two widths and lengths, but no matter the size you choose, we would suggest adding baskets or trays with a stack of books/magazines underneath for more storage.
Stuck between a round or rectangular hard place? Oval tables, like this one by Control Brand, are a flawless happy medium.

Using four materials in a simple piece of furniture is usually one too many. However Carrera-like marble, powder-coated steel, solid walnut and brass come together effortlessly in this Blue Dot table.
The Reeve table from West Elm is reminiscent of something you'd be really fortunate to find second-hand or vintage, but if you don't have such luck (or the patience to hunt one down), this is a really great alternative.
White marble can be difficult to keep pristine. Enter black marble, paired here with modified brass hairpin legs in a table that would absolutely be the centerpiece to any room in which it resides.
Probably the most masculine table of the bunch, you can take home this low-profile blocky baby in both white or gray marble, but our pick is definitely the smokier shade.
