How to Style a Round Glass Coffee Table

Round glass coffee tables add a modern and posh feel to any living space. Decorating it, however, can be a bit tricky. By following these tips, you can easily turn your round glass coffee table into the statement piece you’ve wanted.

1. Start with a Tray

A tray is a great way to create a polished look while defining the table’s space. When you have a tray on top, it emphasizes the fact that the table is round and gives you a great platform to place décor items.

2. Select Pieces Based on Size and Color

When selecting pieces to go on the table, keep in mind the size of pieces in proportion to the overall size of the table. A few bold pieces will take the focus away from the table so choose accordingly. Work with colors that match the existing décor, such as the wall color, or the colors of the upholstery, in the room.

3. Add Height with Books

Rather than filling the table with multiple small objects, adding a few larger items like books will help complete the look. Stack a few books in the tray and/or around the table. This will also create a visual interest and provide a few are that are easier to access.

4. Place a Candlestick

Adding a candle-stick creates a nice contrast on the glass table and adds symmetry if you place two or three of them together. Consider placing other elements in the same way, such as two book ends or two pieces of art at either end.

5. Use a Sculpture

Adding sculptures of any size will add a three-dimensional element to your table. Place a bold and eye-catching piece in the centre for an interesting focal point.

6. Add a Vase and Flowers

A vase with both either real flowers or artificial ones adds a touch of nature. You can also add other seasonal pieces like pumpkins or colorful eggshells to create a centerpiece.

7. Add Softness with a Throw

Adding a throw across the table creates a soft, inviting feel. You can also use colorful pillows instead of a blanket for a playful, inviting look.

8. Use Plants

Putting some plants on your glass table will soften the overall look and make the table cozy. Go with a bigger plant for a bold statement and style it with other accessories like books for an added visual interest.


Styling a round glass coffee table can seem like a daunting task. But by following these tips, you can easily create a trendy and luxurious feel to any living space. Start with a tray, add some books for more interaction, and layer plants for a natural touch. With a few simple steps, you can turn your round glass coffee table into the statement piece of your home.
