Coffee Table Styling!

One of the questions I get asked a lot as a designer, is “how should I style my coffee table”? It seems like such a small and relatively unimportant process but it can actually make a huge impact on your room. There are so many options when styling but I prefer to use some of the following steps below for a ‘no-fail’ coffee table! This is certainly not a comprehensive list, but it’s a good place to start!

Trays are a great way to get organized and keep your coffee table decor neat. You could use a number of great styles… mirrored, wooden, painted, acrylic, or glass, whatever fits your personal style.

Beautiful ‘coffee table’ books are the perfect addition to any room. They can be subtle and neutral in color or they can be bold and graphic to stand out. Either way, books are always a must for your coffee table. Not only do they look beautiful but your guests can curl up with one if they’re easily accessible.

Now it’s time to add in a little touch of decor! Decorative items can be a great conversation starter with your guests. These items let others know a bit more about your interests and passions. Try infusing a few unique items to add your own personal flair to your tabletop!

For example, how cool is this collection of matchboxes inside a small vase. What a great way to express such a fun collection!

And perhaps the love of the beach inspired this bowl full of sea urchins and shells.

I understand not everyone has the time for fresh flower arrangements every week, but they sure do look pretty! Try out your favorite flowers and greenery in order to make your room pop!

I adore candles aesthetically and of course functionally as well! They both look and smell great for your guests. It also gives your room a bit of ambient lighting to add visual interest to your space.

I love this grouping of mercury glass candles.

Varying heights and sizes will always add more visual interest than uniform candles, so don’t be afraid to mix it up!
