The focal point of most living spaces, it pays to keep your coffee table stylish. But it’s not so much the table itself, more how you accessorise it that counts – a carefully curated selection of books, candles, metallics and flowers will give yours some extra design flare…
ADD METALLIC ACCENTS
From candlesticks to vases, hints of gold and metallic rose: all will add an instantly luxe look to your space. This works best against a neutral backdrop – juxtaposed with marble surfaces for instant wow.
A bit of foliage never hurt anyone, so whether it’s an assortment of cacti or eucalyptus branches, give your living space a central focus with a pop of green.
ADORN WITH CANDLES
Fast track your way to a luxe look with a selection of iconic candles. From Diptyque to Jo Malone, it pays to splash the cash on these iconic brands.
The quickest way to show off your style credentials? More affordable than books, stack magazines on your coffee table to prompt conversation with your guests on everything from interiors to fashion.
FEMINISE WITH FLOWERS
Another money-saving way of adding colour to your space, just add flowers (good fake options will do and save money in the long run) to an elegant vase for an extra dose of style.
GO SCANDI WITH TRAYS
Take a leaf out of the minimalists’ book and give your trinkets some order on a stylish tray. Opt for marble for a chic Scandi look or Perspex for a modern touch.
KEEP THINGS SIMPLE
If you’re unsure what will best compliment your room, why not keep things simple? From a lone vase to a carefully placed book, a stripped-back coffee table creates an unfussy, relaxing vibe.
REMEMBER MORE CAN BE MORE
If your space is already full of colourful hues and statement patterns, it’s best to give your coffee table an accompanying theme. The more accessories you add the better – just remember to keep them organised to avoid a messy look.
PILE BOOKS HIGH
The coffee table book earnt its name for a reason – show off your cultural and style expertise with piles of hardbacks. And not to go against the old adage, but remember to consider the colour palette when picking out a cover…
