The coffee table is a natural focal point of any living room. Think of it as a haven to display your design curation prowess, from artful literature selects to thoughtfully composed vignettes. If you're redecorating on a budget, investing in a new living room coffee table is an efficient and affordable way to make a big impact with only a minor tweak.
Add interest to your coffee table by varying the heights of collated objects. In this example, the various heights creates a sense of contrast, while the use of colour pulls it all together. Need extra height? Stack books and pop a scented candle on top.
Your coffee table doesn't have to exactly match the other pieces of furniture in your living room, but it must work together with them. Pick up tones of colour that complement one another, or add a metallic frame for a touch of glam.
The coffee table is one of the most undervalued and yet important pieces of furniture in your living room. If you think about the myriad of uses your coffee table is put to every day, you will appreciate its importance. It's a place for the family to gather, it can be a showcase for your books and ornaments, it's where you can get some last minute work done or where your child does their homework and sometimes it’s where you hurriedly eat your lunch.
Having a clear coffee table is not only stylish, it can make your space look even bigger! It's a fun visual trick that helps your sitting area feel more open and airy. What’s not to love about that?
The coffee table is often called the centerpiece of the room. But you will notice that the same term is often used for a sofa, a rug, or any other piece of furniture.
