How to Style a Round Glass Coffee Table

Incorporating a round glass coffee table into your home decor can instantly update your space with a unique and eye-catching look. However, it can be tricky to know what to place on top of this eye-catching piece of furniture. Here’s our top tips on what to put on a round glass coffee table.


Books are the classic go-to when it comes to styling a coffee table. Choose books that not only reflect your interests, but also come in a variety of sizes, colors and shapes – perfect for creating tactile texture. Opt for coffee table books that have a vibrant cover, or even forego the book altogether and use a simple hardback as a bookend to stack your other books against.


Lighting can instantly set the tone for a room and the glass of a round coffee table is the perfect place to display a statement lamp or hurricane lantern. Candles with contrasting shapes and sizes also work well – scattered along the top, or grouped together with a candle plate.

Decorative Object

Decorative objects help to add layers, texture and personality to a space. A round glass coffee table is the perfect surface to place and showcase a small sculpture or trinket box. Mix it up with a vase of stacked pebbles, or seasonal flowers – such as hydrangeas – to create a calming scene.

Functional Pieces

Last but not least, add some functional pieces like a tray. A tray is great for organizing the remaining accessories on the table and helps to keep things organized. Put a tissue box, coasters, and mugs on the tray to complete the look.

Let’s recap what looks great on a round glass coffee table:

  • Books
  • Lighting
  • Decorative Objects
  • Functional Pieces (such as a tray)

There you have it, the perfect items for styling your round glass coffee table. Get creative, mix and match styles, and enjoy the unique look of this eye-catching accent piece.
