How to Style a Coffee Table

How to Style a Coffee Table

Every living room congregates to two main pieces, the sofa and the coffee table, right? The latter of which is the heart of movie nights, parties and informal dinners! So don’t let your coffee table be the home of just your remote control, make it fun and creative with these stylish ideas.

Candle Bright

Add a dose of glamour to your living area with candles. Long, tapered ones in gold candelabras will add glitz while shorter and rounder ones will add sophistication. Candles also help change the mood of the room, especially when lighted or when adding a fresh scent.

Box It Up

They serve two purposes, as a décor and as a chic storage for remote controls, DVD’s and other items you’d like to be hidden but still within reach if needed. Standout with a matching set in different sizes for the full effect!

Tray Layers

A larger coffee table’s surface may feel overwhelming to decorate but a tray breaks up the top and introduces layers with your design. The tray will also be practical for organizing or for coffee or snacks when you have guests over.

Book Group

Books not only serve as décor to your coffee table but also as reading material to entertain guests. Different stacks of books can add colour, height and dimension to your coffee table.

Fresh Flowers

Garden-fresh flowers will always add elegance to any room. Opt for a monochromatic bouquet or a single orchid in a glass cylinder for a minimalist and lush feel. Take into consideration the colour scheme of your living room when picking blooms.

Little Collectibles

Display your collection of small ornaments or decoration for a personal touch. Let your coffee table reflect your personality and the design you have envisioned for your living room. Small pieces like a memento or photograph will add an interesting flair to your room.
