Even though coffee tables are functional, you also look want them to look attractive. Harmonize table accents with your 'obtaining color scheme' and 'decorating style', taking into account the shape or construction of the table.
You might discover an 'extraordinary' coffee table accessory on a "treasure hunt" right in your own home.
1. Single AccentRemember that less could actually be more when you're arranging an attractive/beautiful coffee table, and a single accessory could often create a major statement.
Situate a large white vase filled with fresh white daisies in the middle of a black‐painted wood coffee table to add outdoor energy, striking contrast and visual interest to the room.
Choose a flamboyant single accent, such as an antique vase, a metal sculpture or a colorful piece of pottery, that's in scale with the size of your coffee table. Place a mirrored tile, decorative plate or a couple of stacked books underneath the single accessory to attach interest.
2. ClusterSituate a variety of decorative accessories atop your coffee table to fashion an good‐looking cluster arrangement. Start your grouping by setting the tallest accent, such as a 'potted orchid', 'vase of flowers' or 'glass hurricane', in the middle of your coffee table.
Also, huddle a few other decorative items in "varying‐heights" around the tallest accessory. A trio of candlesticks in staggered‐heights, a stack of hardbound books and a special figurine create attractive accompaniments to the tallest accent.
When you finish displaying your 'cluster grouping', step a few feet away from the coffee table to watch it from afar. Adjust the arrangement to your liking.
3. SymmetricalSymmetrical coffee table arrangements are particularly suited for rectangular‐shaped tables. Organize your display by focusing the tallest accessory in the 'middle of your favorite coffee table'.
The centered item can contain 'natural foliage', such as a vase of fresh lilac, colorful flowers, potted greenery or forsythia sprigs.
Set items of equal visual weight on each side of the foliage. For example, put a decorative glass bowl on one side of the centered accent and a couple of books sandwiched between wrought‐iron bookends on the opposite side.
The books and bookends must appear to be about the same size as the bowl to balance each side's visual weight.
4. TraysA tray offers an eye‐catching means to keep your coffee table accessories neatly arranged. Use a tray with a different texture than the top of your coffee table to deliver a designer‐look.
For example, a metal, glass or natural woven tray placing atop a 'wood coffee table' ramps‐up the visual interest as opposed to a wood tray on top of a wood table.
Charge the tray with assorted decorating treasures in varied‐heights. Potted greenery, glass votives filled with candles, a jar of seashells or pebbles and a few hardback books offers a delightful grouping inside of a charming tray.ouping inside of a charming tray.
