First, choose the coffee table style that most suits you and your living room. Are you into light or dark colours? Do you like wood or metal? What shape do you want: round, square or rectangular? What size should it be? Should it have storage room? Can it be easily restyled? At Oot-Oot Studio we have minimal coffee tables that can be easily restyled with different decorating items anytime you feel like it. Check them our here.
Set a theme to help you find the right decorative objects for your coffee table. You can have a beach, romantic, minimalistic or any other theme that catches your eye and looks great in your home.
Decorate with objects that belong into a complementary colour palette and style category. Use candles, books, trays and flowers. They are common design elements in professional table styling. They also create a focal point for the table, binding all the decorative elements together.
Styling your coffee table with objects that have different height or size will add depth to your living room. However, balance is the key here. Don’t only mix extra large elements with extra small ones. Be gradual to avoid crooked displays.
Above all, don’t forget that your coffee table should always preserve its function. Don’t overdo it with styling elements. Keep some free space for your and your quests’ coffee cups, phone etc.
