A gorgeous coffee table makes a perfect blank canvas for decorating. But where to start? Here, we've provided a simple formula to achieve your expertly-styled look. Keeping your coffee table simple with black, white, and gold or silver accents will always coordinate with any color palette and remain timeless.
1. Flowers can be the brightest color in the room
Pick a color and accessorize. Using flowers is nature’s stamp on a warm welcome every time you come home. From fragrant to architectural, a floral arrangement can compliment any design style and make the perfect centerpiece.
2. Add Layers
Pile coffee tables with books and objects. Accessorize using fashion and travel hardbacks adjacent to sculptural objects, or candy dishes. Speaking of sweet eats, add an apothecary jar and fill it with cookies or candies so there's always a snack on hand.
3. Organization is also key
Trays and trinket boxes are a great solution when needing to clear the coffee table quickly for entertaining. Have too many remotes? Use trays and decorative boxes to keep things tidy and concealed. Add coasters you received as a gift or purchased from a gift shop while on vacation. It's the ideal spot to add something that sparks a story. Plus, they are very important to prevent surprise stains or watermarks on your table.

Just remember, add dimension and instant color pop, show off your lifestyle books or magazines and top off with a printed toss-all tray for keys or candies.
