Sebastiana Bianchi December 5, 2019 Coffee Table
In many ways, a coffee table is the centerpiece of your living room. It's the focal point around which we gather, it serves as a conversation starter (thanks to its décor or design), and it anchors the living room as a homey space of leisure and spending time together. Your coffee table—with its physical design or even the books and knickknacks that adorn it—has the power to transform the look and feel of your living space. If you're looking for a refresh to ready your space for holiday entertaining, making over your coffee table is a strong way to start.
Want to make a small living room look less crowded? Opt for a glass coffee table, which frees up visual space with its sleek, see-through design so that the rest of the room's decor shows through.
Whether you're looking for someplace soft to put up your feet or for a formal finishing touch, the right living room coffee table can pull your entire room together.
Coffee table styling is a bit of an art. Since coffee tables usually have prominent places in living rooms, it's important that they look good, but it's equally important that they function in the way they're supposed to.
Maybe we're still holding on to the one we purchased for our first apartment years ago, or maybe we invested in a piece we love but have never actually taken the time to style it. Whatever the reason may be, a coffee table is often the most overlooked part of a living room, but it's also arguably one of the most important. It's the one item that's at the center of the space, the piece of furniture that people congregate around, and the space where you can truly infuse some personality in your décor.
A good coffee table is a practical piece that can pull together a whole room. More sculptural designs make a style statement and provide a focus within a large space.
