“This coffee table situation is pure perfection.”

A coffee table is a must-have piece of furniture in the living room. It’s like a puzzle. To get a complete look, you need to have a coffee table with your sofa. It’s in the high traffic area at home and it should be well decorated. We usually spend time with our friends and welcome guests on the sofa. 

Play with books

One of the popular decorations is books. Place two or three books on the coffee table and a figure or little vase on them.

There is not a specific rule about what kind of books you should put on the table. It’s good to choose a specific size or color according to the coffee table. It looks very classy if you choose books with a fashion or interior design theme. 

If you have a square coffee table, pick a quadrant and place books, a small plant or a vase, a tray, and a bowl of clay. 

Trays as a must-have in decoration

Trays are not expensive and otherwise, their textures make the spot more pleasant and with accessories on the tray, everything looks neat. 

Pay attention to choosing the right tray for the coffee table. If you have a round table, a round tray won’t look nice on it. A round coffee table matches perfectly with a square or rectangular tray. Place a tray with decor on it.

Plants, plants, and plants

Plants bring life and make every home more vivid. Even a small plant on the coffee table can do the same. 

There are many beautiful arrangements that can improve the design and total appearance of the coffee table. Moss balls can fit perfectly on the tray or in a decorative bowl. Mixing moss balls with twig bowls is a super idea. You will get different textures and colors on the table.

You can always put potted flowers and make the space lively. A small, potted orchid is a splendid choice.

Other plants for decorating can be topiaries, flower branches, cut flowers, greens, or nests.
