There’s no universally loved stone quite like marble. Synonymous with luxury and glamour, it has quickly become everyone’s go-to for decorating their homes. Although the top-of-mind type of marble is the popular white-and-gray kind, it actually comes in such a wide range of colors, finishes, patterns and other kinds that can suit anyone’s home.
Here are 4 local marble shops and our favorite things to get from them:
1. Ren Marble
Ren Marble has everything from large, customizable furniture and small jewelry bowls. They take pride in their conscious production process that puts Filipino artisans and the environment at the forefront.
What to shop:
If you happen to be looking for a new coffee table, you have to see Ren Marble’s pieces, especially their glass tops that sit on marble, geometric-shaped bases. They make for such a statement piece that can instantly elevate your living room.

Ren Marble boasts a huge array of side tables that come in a variety of minimalist silhouettes. We love the Argo Onyx, one of their simpler shapes that comes to life with its eye-catching veins.

This irregularly shaped bowl immediately caught our eye because it’s something we’ve never seen with marble before. The fluidity of the silhouette and hardness of the material makes for an interesting contrast.
