Colours, Textures, Plants & More: Here Are 11 Pinterest-Worthy Ways To Style Your Coffee Table
Most of us use our coffee table when there’s a snack or hot beverage that needs to be put down. But we don’t buy coffee tables just for their practical value. We ponder and analyse and research designs till we find the perfect one. Why?
Because it lies in the centre of the seating area!
So while you may have bought the perfect coffee table, there’s an art to styling it. Whether you have gorgeous coffee table books, eclectic souvenirs and fancy trays, or basic plants, vases and paperback novels, there are some easy styling tips to make your coffee table look beautiful & balanced.
Don’t just throw things on randomly – pick some of these coffee table styling ideas and get a Pinterest-worthy living room!
Create A Grid
When you have a large coffee table, you need to know where to begin. Start from small knick-knacks and form a grid and position objects within the squares. This will also help you in compartmentalising your style and not make the surface look cluttered.
Add Seasonal Items
Your coffee table is the focal point of your living room, and it is a great place to experiment with seasonal decorative items. For example, add orchids during spring time, seashells and a stack of books for the summer and an orange mat in autumn.
Maintain The Highs And Lows
Play With Colour
Play with colours on your coffee table. You could even paint it if you favour bold colours, mostly because it is also the focal point of your living room. For dark woods, use metallic items for decor accessories.
If these options sound loud for you, go for table trays in bright or bold colours or pick some bright-hued items.
Choose Your Side
Sometimes, you could also play the trick of accessorising one side of the table and leaving the other half empty, or maybe just place a large vase on it. This would help you to keep the area clutter-free and keep space for friends and family to play games on it.
Use A Tray
You could also place a game board on the centre of your coffee table to help your guests break the ice, and make it an entertaining space of the house every time someone visits your place. Place a vintage board game, or even a couple of old wine bottles with a fine wine glass or two to add some sophistication to space.
If the idea of decorating your coffee table with knick-knacks looks like a task for you, try placing one large item over it to give a minimalist approach.
Make It Personal
Your coffee table is, after all, a unit in your personal space – so why not showcase an old watch that has been passed on from generations in your family, or an exotic decor piece you got from a memorable vacation.
