Giving Your Coffee Table Life

Ok, so coffee tables are for, coffee, remote controls, And maybe some nibbles. Right? But hold on, shouldn’t they also look great?

Coffee Table

A coffee table is an excellent excuse to showcase some more of our favourite items in a way that can make the living room look that little bit nicer and cosy. It is the perfect place to have bits that we like to see when we're relaxing.

If you’re contemplating giving your coffee table a bit of a classy look, rather than just using it as a helpful place for keeping your brews and remote, then here are some of the things you should have on it.

Books

Every coffee table should have some literature. And no, I'm not talking about those well-thumbed paperbacks, but large, hardback coffee table books. Depending on your interests, these books could be about black and white photography or cars, interiors or fashion, flowers or architecture. The subjects are wide-ranging enough to have something for everybody. Books are great as accessories in themselves, but also work well as a backdrop/platform for other, smaller decorative accessories.

Candles

Especially in the winter months. There’s nothing that says 'home' more than some candles on your coffee table. Even when they're not lit, they give off a lived-in feel that changes a coffee table from being just that to a point where people can gather round for a cosy drink.

Flowers

Just like any space, it needs some green to induce it to life; a coffee table also needs a little. Any surface that has objects displayed tends to look a bit dead without them. I’m not saying you should run to a florist on a weekly basis to buy an exorbitant bouquet, but checking out the markets for a bargain is always a good idea. If you’re not a fan of flowers, then think of some beautiful (not too big) plant that would suit your style.

Glass

When accessorising anything, it’s important to have some pieces that won’t take up too much visual space while making a visual impact. Clear glass accessories are perfect for this because they are see through it means that even the larger items don’t seem too bulky. Glass also manages to give the whole look a refined and elegant touch. If your table is on the smaller side, then think about glass candle holders or a glass vase for your houseplants.

Ornaments

Yes, those bits and bobs you have for no other reason than the fact that you loved them. They don’t serve any special purpose other than being pleasing to look at. These are the things that will give your coffee table personality.

Tray

Trays are great additions not only to move your coffee to your table but to group small items collectively. It’s an optical trick: grouping lots of items on a tray will make your table look much tidier and give the impression of a well thought out arrangement.
