BEST WAYS TO STYLE A COFFEE TABLE IN YOUR LIVING ROOM
With the right decor, a coffee table can be the focal point of your living room.
1.WEAVE IN A SENTIMENTAL ITEM
Whether it's a family heirloom or a ceramic that you've treasured for years, incorporating a sentimental element into your coffee table decor adds a special touch.
2.ADD AN AIR OF MYSTERY
A brass cloche is the singular (and somewhat mysterious) piece of coffee table decor in the living room of designer Shawn Anderson's country-meets-gothic farmhouse in Memphis.
3.STICK TO A SINGLE COLOR
The circa-1950 Sphere cocktail table and lamp in this Buenos Aires living room are by Jean Royère. A simple white bowl and blooms add to the room's monochromatic palette.
4.LIGHT IT UP
A duo of candelabras tie this living room's gold elements together in glamorous harmony. The sofa from designer Jean-Louis Deniot’s collection for Baker is in a Martyn Thompson Studio fabric, the 1930s Jindrich Halabala chairs are in a JAB Anstoetz fabric, the vintage cocktail table is by Paul Frankl, and the gold side table is by Hervé Van der Straeten;
5.GO MINIMALIST WHEN FURNITURE'S HEAVY
Designer Shawn Henderson pared down the coffee table decor in the living room of this Montana mountain home. The custom sofa, in a JAB Anstoetz fabric, is by Dune, the 1950s chair (left) is in a Dedar fabric,
6.DISPLAY YOUR ART
A bust sits on the coffee table from India in the living room of designer John Robshaw's Connecticut home. The living room sofa and its fabric are by John Robshaw for Duralee; the armchair, custom banquettes, and bone-inlay side table are all Robshaw designs
7.MIX RUSTIC WITH REFINED
The cocktail table inside designer Rela Gleason's San Miguel de Allende home is an inverted polished tree stump, a stone mill wheel serves as a side table.
8.CHOOSE A STATEMENT TABLE
If your table makes a statement on its own, whatever you place on top of it is just a bonus! Inside a PR maven's New York City home, the coffee table and floor lamp are by West Elm.
9.TRY MORE THAN ONE TABLE
The sleek living room of a Manhattan apartment designed by Jamie Drake and Caleb Anderson of Drake/Anderson has two separate sitting areas and tables of various sizes throughout.
10.ACCENT WITH A SINGLE DISH
If your coffee table is tiny in size, like the one in this São Paulo duplex, all it needs is one of your favorite artisan bowls or plates to elevate it — especially if the rest of the room boasts maximalist decor.
11.DISPLAY YOUR COLLECTION
Stack books on your cocktail table as a foundation for your collection of eclectic knickknacks. In an apartment on New York City's Sutton Place, trinkets and miniature sculptures give the living room a chic but eclectic vibe.
12.OPT FOR TWO LONG TABLES
In the New York living room of hotelier Ian Schrager's apartment, two long tables divide the couches. The visual illusion itself is the decorative piece — simple and effective.
13.ADD A POUF
In the living room of Kate and Rem Reynolds’s townhouse in Windsor Terrace, Brooklyn, the wooden cocktail table is Danish and it is accompanied by a pouf. Extra seating and texture play? Yes, please.
14.METICULOUSLY STACK SETS OF BOOKS
In the living room of antiques dealer John Pope’s Charleston, South Carolina apartment, the statement red cocktail table was found at auction.
15.DUST OFF YOUR RETRO FINDS
In Ibiza, this living room is outfitted with a mirrored 1980s coffee table. The ceramic tiles reflect off the centerpiece creating a psychedelic effect.
16.REPURPOSE OLD MATERIALS
The cocktail table in a Charleston, South Carolina sitting room was made out of a floor grate from the owner's great-grandparents’ Missouri home.
If you're a fan of nautical decor, bring it to your coffee table design. This wicker table fits in perfectly with the coastal decor of the space.
18.CHOOSE A COLORFUL BASE
In the living area of interior designer Kimille Taylor’s Upper West Side apartment, the center table is topped with a sparse selection of books and flowers (of course), allowing for the dazzling yellow table to shine for itself.
19.ACCESSORIZE WITH SCULPTURES
In an upstate New York house, the family room is anchored by a cocktail table by Etienne Allemeersch from Art-Design-Carta.
20.PICK A TABLE WITH STATEMENT LEGS
In a Manhattan home library, the Mattia Bonetti coffee table is custom-made.
