Great living room style starts with a coffee table. Providing a solid focal point in any living room, coffee tables act as spots to set down refreshments, collect remote controls and display artsy collections of coffee table books (or trashy magazines!). Think about what type of design and shape suits your decor. Crafted from wood, chrome, iron, glass and concrete in forms including square, rectangular or round, there’s a coffee table for every look.
Go for BalanceA collection of small knick-knacks has a way of cluttering up a surface in no time. On the other hand, displaying only big items can create a loaded down feel. To ensure a balanced look, vary the size and height of items and stack or group like objects together.
Switch Things up for the SeasonYour coffee table is a great place to feature seasonal decorative objects. In the spring, try a vase filled with freshly cut tulips. For summer, go for a beachy vibe with a bowl full of seashells. In the fall, display some faux foliage. In the winter, set a festive feeling with Christmassy accessories. With these seasonal touches, your vignettes will always feel new.
The Triple ThreatFollowing the time-tested design rule that everything looks best when grouped by threes, dividing the top of your coffee table into three separate sections can help you decide where to lay everything out. This works best for rectangular tables.
Colour CheckChoose decorative objects that accentuate the style and colour palette of your room. If you have bold hues in your space, try to mix in some neutrals like white, black metal, glass and wood to help balance out the colours at play.
Think Real LifeIf your room is used very often, think about styling just one part of your coffee table. It’ll keep it from feeling cluttered and will ensure you leave plenty of space for people to set down any items. Another way to manage your coffee table is to create your vignettes on trays so you can easily clear them out of your way when you want to use the entire surface of your table.
