What to Put in a Glass Coffee Table

Glass coffee tables are a stylish, contemporary way to add a living room feature without eating up space. If you have just purchased a glass coffee table or are considering getting one, here are some ideas for what to put inside.

Books and Magazines

If you like to soak up a good book or loved to flick through magazines, then you can showcase them on a glass coffee table. This style of table is especially useful for small spaces that cannot accommodate shelving, or for those without any wall space for bookshelves.


A glass coffee table is an ideal space to showcase your family’s memories in photos. Choose photo frames that compliment your style and space. Mirrored frames can also hang well on a glass coffee table to seamlessly blend into the background.


Using the glass coffee table top, you can create a unique lighting element in your living room. Place some candles or tall lampshades onto your table for a contemporary effect.


Decorate your glass coffee table with trinkets and other decorative items. Some ideas include:

  • Rocks/Crystals: Place some stones and crystals around your table for a natural, decorative element.
  • Vases: Place a single vase in the centre of your coffee table with dried flowers or grasses.
  • Teacups: Arrange a few china teacups in an ornate design for a touch of elegance.

These are some ideas for what to put inside a glass coffee table. With a little bit of creativity, you can make it truly yours.
