Marbling is a big interiors story right now. These are the marvellous marbled homewares we’re mad keen on.

Far from being relegated to the slip pages of dusty tomes or the back-street stationery shops of Italian cities, marbled paper is a textural trend making its way into our homes this season in a big way. It’s been seen across ceramics, wallpaper, fabrics and even lighting. And, thanks to a modern update – think bold hues or millennial pastels – it can be a great way of adding print to your home if you’re not the floral sort and yet are craving pattern. Here are ten pieces to buy into the marbled trend this month.

Harris and Jones, £32

Who said paperwork had to be boring? These box files with grosgrain ribbon detailing from Harris and Jones would stand proud on any home office shelf. #wfh just got an upgrade. Buy them here.

Marbled Tumbler

You can always rely on Hay to have its finger on the interiors trend pulse and this season is no different. Swirled Murano glass tumblers may have had their moment but our money’s on Hay’s range of marbled stoneware cups for this season’s must-have tablescaping accessories. Buy them here.

Marbled Wallpaper

Mind The Gap, £175

If you’re ready to make a real marbling statement, this handmade paper from Mind The Gap feels like being enveloped in your favourite book. Available in a range of colours from arresting topaz to a classic grey and red combo, it’s a great choice for a study or reading nook. Buy it here.

Combed Marble Notebook

Pink Marbled Decorations

Bode Living, £8 For A Pair

If you’re looking for a festive nod to marbling, these pretty pink glass ornaments from modern Scandi emporium Bode Living make for a beautiful, hand-finished touch. Buy them here.

Marbled Tableware Set

Made, £79

A few years ago, patterned tableware was reserved for dusty parents’ wedding services. That, emphatically, is no longer, with splatterware’s popularity on an unstoppable meteoric rise and marbled tableware not far behind. This swirly set from Made in pared-back grey and white is a great neutral option. Buy it here.
