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.
Position your coffee table close to your sofa or armchairs so it forms both a useful surface and an anchor to a conversational arrangement of furniture. Keep it within reach but allow enough space to come and go from seating.
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.
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.
