What is your current coffee table situation? Is it ideally curated, overflowing with unread magazines, or just a little bit sad? It's easy to spend weeks (maybe even years!) searching for the best accent table for your space‐the size requires to be right, the shape requires to work with the rest of your furniture, the material requires to stand out‐but once you discover the one, you require to nurture it.
It's, after all, the centerpiece of your living room. We suggest adorning it with pretty accents, while creating sure to remain it usable and edit out the unnecessary. How do you use your living room‐is it for lazy days of Netflix binges, hosting cocktail parties, or playing board games? Easy match your requires with one of the styles below, and you've got yourself a curated coffee table in no time.
#1 NEW TRADITIONAL"More is more" is your motto. You don't believe in Konmari‐in fact, you'd rather keep your mementos for a lifetime. If your walls are stacked with art and bookcases filled with books, keep your coffee table as simple as possible‐even lucid‐and let your precious objects shine. Coating your special coffee table with books, vases, treasure boxes, and beautiful matchbooks to light your special candles.
#2 SCANDI STYLEYou love moody but minimal Scandinavian interiors. You effortlessly mix vintage pieces with sleek design elements and high/low pieces. Begin with a vintage steamer trunk, then layer it with your favourite objects: "brass candelabras", "design books", "colourful", and "pineapple tumblers vases".
#3 MINIMAL HAVENYou require your space to be edited and serene: white floors, white walls, and a white ceiling. Choose a set of coffee tray tables with super‐clean lines, and decorate with simple black, white, and metallic accents. "Finish off" the look with sculptural stems and a small stack of your special design magazines.
#4 PARISIAN MOODYou use your interiors like a work of art, and everything in your home is carefully edited. Each object looks great on its own, but the whole point is for them to play‐off each other to create an interesting whole. Look for unusual colors and shapes in 'both' your coffee table and the accents you select to decorate it with. Blend curvy shapes with geometrics and pastels with bold colors.
