The coffee table just may be the most neglected piece of furniture in the living room. It is much more than just a place to set the remote and magazines. In fact, all the swoon-worthy living rooms that you see in home decor magazines and on social media have one thing in common, a chic coffee table. That is right, with the right accessories, you can make your living room coffee table become the focal point of the room. Let’s see how!
How to Style a Coffee Table:
- Make a Statement.
It is always great to have a coffee table that makes a statement all on its own. From intricately shaped legs to bold hues with patterns, there are so many different coffee tables on the market. If you want to add some interest to your living room, choose a table that helps to make a statement and add to the overall design.
- Chic Basket.
Baskets and coffee tables mesh together well. Not only are baskets super functional because they help collect your tabletop items and create a sense of organization, but you can use them to create chic vignettes. Start off, by picking out an eye-catching basket, organize a few objects within the catch-all, and top things off by adding a scented candle and small vase with flowers.
- Style with Books.
Believe it or not, books are more than just a reading material. Did you know that they are interior designers’ go-to accessory? Books, specifically, can add dimensions to the coffee table’s flat surface. Whether it is just one book or a stack of them, they add style to the tabletop, especially when you incorporate in a few accessories like tray or basket. For an easy and clean look, stack books within the same color scheme. You can also go bold and mix together books with different palettes or patterns.
- Accent with A Game.
One unique way to dress up your coffee table is to accent it with a game board like a collector’s chess set, oversized dominoes, or tic tac toe set.
- The Space Underneath.
Do not forget about the space underneath your coffee table. You can stylishly stash throw pillows or accent it with chic stools.
There are numerous ways you can dress up your coffee table. Get creative and make the design special to you.
