How To Style Coffee Tables Tips and Ideas

A couple of years ago I did a post on How to Style Coffee Tables Tips and Ideas.  It had a ton of views and pins and most of my examples still reflect todays styles.

I thought it would be fun to update things a little since we have moved and I have a new round coffee table to style too.

Books and candles are always perfect accessories.

Adding a pretty decorative dish to hold decor balls or ornaments at Christmas is a great accessory to add to your stash.

How about adding something unusual like a chess set.  It makes for great conversations and a great game with your company too.

Hurricanes to hold a pretty colored candle to match your decor spread color around the room.

Trays are such a wonderful way to corral all of the smaller things on your table.

Look for unusual accessories and then add in a little greenery.

Flowers are such a pretty way to tie different accessories together too.

Candles and baskets for texture are always good.

Try out different arrangements on your tables.  Mix in books, flowers, greenery, candles, trays and unusual objects to create the perfect vignettes for your coffee table.

  3. Good Afternoon Marty, As always a very creative, informative post. I love your use of trays and the chess set.... well I am bringing mine from the conservatory into my living room, but I had better mention this to my husband as he might want to play a game over the weekend and he will wonder where it has gone (smile).
    Have a lovely weekend.
    Best Wishes
