Have a perfect coffee table but don’t know how to decorate it so that it gets the attention it deserves? Fact is that a beautiful coffee table is and should be the focal point of any room, and that means you have to dress it up and accessorise it in a way that it makes a real visual impact and catches the eye of guests as soon as they enter the room.
However, though we all love to think of our contemporary coffee table as a piece of art, we can forget that it has a practical purpose – it must have space to hold cups and glasses and snack trays and that means styling it and decorating it also needs to be done intelligently.
Sometimes the wood coffee table designs can decide which style of decor works best for them. An elaborate style needs something simple so that not everything in the room is screaming for attention, while a simple iron wood coffee table will benefit from a vibrant cluster decor that brings in colours, textures and heights.
So without wasting any more time, let’s take a look at a few simple, creative and very do-able ways to add a touch of personality to that coffee table you splurged upon!
#1 Before you accessorize your sheesham coffee table, you have to ensure that the design of the table itself complements your decor theme. With the right decor, your coffee table can look eye catching and totally unique even if the design in itself is very basic. From crystal vases to candles to flower arrangements to bowls with potpourri, there are many ways to dress up your carved coffee table so that it gets the attention of your guests. Make sure you use scale and height when accessorizing your wooden coffee table with glass top for the maximum impact.
#2 For a stylish look, use organic elements on your wooden coffee table with glass top. You can add flowers in crystal and porcelain vases, you can even put a small potted herb plant and use either one large flower arrangement or a collection of smaller pieces to create the right focal point. Since not everyone can maintain flowers or buy fresh flowers every day, a great alternative is candles. Use scented candles that are put in to exotic candle holders; they could be sleek and modernistic or organic and colourful, based on the style statement you wish to make.
#3 Adding a sense of scale to a low height contemporary coffee table can do wonders. For this, add accessories of varying heights and scales to create a visually pleasing cluster arrangement. Use a combination of trays, books, bowls with potpourri and anything you fancy to create an interesting cluster, while avoiding different items of the same height that will not create any individual impact. When you use different decor elements to decorate a carved coffee table, you will give your table interest and flow. You can even stack items like books or boxes on top of one another, and create a colour palette that matches the colour of accent cushions you have used or even the colours of the rug underneath!
#4 If the coffee table is really small and creating clusters is not an option, use a tray to add a layer of intrigue. Wicker and cane trays or solid wood ones create a beautiful look on a contemporary coffee table in wood and for a traditional coffee table; you can also pick a hand painted porcelain or ceramic tray in vivid colours. This idea works best for trunk coffee table design because it gives an even surface that you can then customize with a few candles, a sleek clear glass vase with a long stem single rose and maybe a designer napkin holder to create some visual interest.
#5 If you are a collector of quirky clocks, photo frames, figurines or even small sculptures or glass bowls, you can create a personalized decor for your coffee table as a focal point. Use a large sheesham coffee table with a minimalistic design details as your base and then create a decor that symbolizes your interests. This would be eye-catching and totally unique and every guest who walks in to your living room with know you collect a certain item and who knows, maybe on your birthday you will get a perfect gift to add to your collection too!
