Tips And Tricks To Style Your Coffee Table With Ease.

Wanting the coffee table of your dreams but don’t know where to start? Get inspired to create a stylish coffee table with these tips and tricks.

Consider scale

Before buying any styling products or decorating your coffee table, consider the scale of the table and your living room as a whole. You don’t want to overcrowd your coffee table so there isn’t space to rest a drink or remote. A perimeter of blank space around the table is essential and will help your styling arrangement to ‘breathe’. On the flip side, if you have a large coffee table, you can have fun with oversized items or create several stacks — it’s all about balance.

Decide on a theme

All good styling starts with a plan and that includes for a small space like a coffee table. While we’re all for mixing pieces, it is a good idea to think about the overall look or feel you want to achieve — is it relaxed and natural, or more polished and luxe? With this in mind, it will be easier for you to source pieces that you can use and you’ll be happier with the end result too.

Have high and low elements

Another hot tip when styling your coffee table is to play with height and scale. If all of the items are of a similar size or height, you may find the arrangement looks flat — literally and figuratively speaking! It’s a good idea to have at least one tall item, such as the orchid as we’ve used or a candlestick or sculpture, and one lower and wider piece, such as a tray or stack of books, to create an arrangement with interest.
