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?
In many ways, a coffee table is the centerpiece of your living room. It's the focal point around which we gather, it serves as a conversation starter (thanks to its décor or design), and it anchors the living room as a homey space of leisure and spending time together. Your coffee table—with its physical design or even the books and knickknacks that adorn it—has the power to transform the look and feel of your living space. If you're looking for a refresh to ready your space for holiday entertaining, making over your coffee table is a strong way to start.
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.
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.
