Getting the edge on a sophisticated look in your living and/or dining room comes down to decluttering your space and opting for furnishings that provide maximum functionality for your bucks and there’s a reason the classic sideboard is enjoying a renaissance.
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?
Choose a coffee table that speaks of the scene you’d like to set in your living room. Be it a collected antique chest, a sleek designer statement or a stylish and functional timber piece, make it the linch pin to assert your style.
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.
Whether you like to spend hours lazing on the sofa binge-watching Russian Doll, cozying up for the occasional crossword puzzle, or just need someplace to display your very sophisticated taste in Assouline titles and fashion candles, the coffee table is the — very crucial — centerpiece of any living room.
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.
