As an interior designer & interior stylist one question I am often asked is how to style a coffee table? I would like to share my five top tips of how to style your coffee table for an original and designer look!
1: Mix it up! For me a resolved coffee table is a combination of elements, scale, material, shape etc. Don’t be afraid to get it wrong, that’s the best way to learn!
2: Elements I always use on my coffee tables;
Something natural; fresh flowers, a plant, a shell or a beautiful piece of coral.
Books; look for books with interesting covers and interesting subject matter too! I find that monochrome covers are the best team players, but sometimes a colour can bring everything together for a more personal look.
Sculpture; for a truly personal look, collect interesting objects, from antique busts, brass animals, a collection of glass paper weights or perhaps a beautiful marble bowl.
Other useful pieces are boxes, trays, scented candles, but you can add anything you like, just mix it up and play with it!
