How to Style a Coffee Table

Creating interesting decor for your home can be a tricky task. One commonly overlooked space for stylish decor is the coffee table. Taking a little bit of creativity and inspiration, it is easy to take any coffee table from dull to dynamic.

Here are some tips to help you give your coffee table a little bit of style:

1. Choose a Theme

A great place to start when styling your coffee table is to decide on a theme. A few ideas to consider are:

  • Color Scheme: Pick colors that will fit the overall aesthetic of your home.
  • Textures: Gather items with different textures to add visual interest.
  • Height Variation: Style with various heights for a dynamic look.
  • Storytelling: Use the table to tell a story using the items carefully placed on it.

2. Gather Pieces

Once you have chosen a theme for your coffee table, you can begin to assemble the pieces for styling. Essential items for coffee table styling include:

  • Tray: A tray is great to help keep the items on your coffee table neat and organized.
  • Books: A stack of coffee table books can add flair (especially when topped with a trinket like a candle).
  • Vases & Jars: Whether filled with flowers or not, a vase or jar can help bring height and texture to the table.
  • Objects d’art: Sculptures, trinkets, and small pieces of art can bring interesting dimension and character to the look.

3. Arrange and Accessorize

Once you have gathered all the pieces you want to display it’s time to arrange them in a way that will suit the theme. Move items around, experiment with different heights and textures, and adjust until you feel satisfied.

Try to use all the surface area of the coffee table by using smaller items that do not take up too much visual space. You can also accessorize with coasters and placemats for a final stylish touch.

4. Enjoy the Look!

Stand back and soak up the look you have created. Bring a little bit of color, texture and personality to your space with a thoughtful arrangement on your coffee table.

With these four simple steps, you can create an interesting look to bring your coffee table to the next level. Enjoy your new stylish design!
