Styling a coffee table is a bit of an art. A coffee table is a very important living room furniture, since it’s the center of attention, when you enter a room.
This humble piece of décor is key to setting the tone of your living room‘s entire design, serving as a visual focal point. It’s also one of the most chaos-given surfaces in your house.
Here, we highlight top 5 Styling Ideas to add some extra flair to your coffee table.
1. A statement piece
Your house – your rules. Opt for one statement piece that reflects your personality. An eye-catching sculptural item or vase from your last trip in Nepal, sometimes it is all that’s needed to complete a living room design.
“People always say to me, gosh, I love that, where’s it from? Ethiopia hass got amazing ceramics, similar to Iran. I’m always looking to bring back fascinating objects that people haven’t seen before. It’s just a habit that I’ve got, collecting belongings” – Katharine Pooley – luxury interior designer.
2. Go with flowers and candles
Adorn your coffee table with fresh flowers for instant styling. Add a few stacks of stylish books and personal objects for an eclectic touch.
With a nice, solid surface, some candles could set a relaxing mood for the living room. You could compine and use both: flowers and candles to create a home you wish to return to after a tiring day.
3. Choose a statement table
If your table makes a statement on its own, whatever you place on top of it is just a bonus.
4. Try more than one table
Take the example of Kelly Hoppen – UK Top interior designer, and choose one coffee table which has simple, luxerious and chic look and…add 2 or 3 more.
“Big coffee tables are very on trend at the moment, and the larger the coffee table the better!”
5. Add a tray to your ottoman
