Quick Styling Tips: _ Books are key items, a couple of stacks of coffee table books you love, arranged at one end, or opposite sides. _ Trays are key to creating a style when there isn't much happening, either contrast the shape of the table (i.e. round on square, or square on round), or go for the same shape, positioned perpendicular or off centre, place a vase with fresh flowers or a candle holder, and throw your remotes in. _ Pretty boxes also make an easy display; placed on top of a few magazines or stack a couple in differing sizes & colours, they will add an instant display and also form a place where you can hide the remotes. _ Create a more personal style with one or two small objects or knickknacks placed on a stack of books or on a box. _ Fresh Flowers_ a sculptural vase or bowl will often form the focus of coffee tables, for extra punch; fill it with fresh flowers when guests come round.
Coffee tables add pizazz to your decor by making a room feel complete. When you add these tables to your living room or family room, you can create a distinct coziness to your seating areas. Some living or family rooms can be overwhelming in size. By adding a couple coffee tables near a sofa or a chair combination, they create mini seating areas which, in turn, foster a more comfortable and cozy atmosphere. Coffee tables are also known as accent tables because they can accentuate a room's decor. If the living room's theme is, for example, wild flowers, accent tables can hold some well placed vases full of fresh cut or dried wild flowers. They can also display home decor and art pieces that are part of the wild flower theme. In this way, these accent tables pull a room together _ decor_wise.
