    ​Humans have been using marble in their art and architecture since ancient times—and with good reason. It's smooth, beautiful, strong and every piece is unique. While most of us are the most familiar with white marble laced with grey, you can find this timeless stone in pinks and greens, blue and black, too.

    Prized as a symbol of taste and of tradition, marble in home decor brings to mind a look of classical elegance. That said, marble has gotten a modern makeover as of late. In just about every major home and furniture store you can find touches of marble—from lamps to tables, trays, bowls and more.

    Ahead, we've gathered 15 of our favorite marble home accents that are sure to add some old world charm to your decor.
