How To Style Your Coffee Table


Hello lovely blog readers! I hope you all have been enjoying the warmer weather I know we sure have. It is so nice to be able to spend some time outdoors with the kids and not have to bundle them up in 100 layers haha. So today's post is a fun one, I wanted to talk about something I am frequently asked about and that is "how to style your coffee table". Now there are a lot of ways you can go about styling your coffee table however the first question I always ask clients is how are you looking to use it and if you have any limitations with pets or children.

The most important step is selecting a coffee table that is suitable for your family and lifestyle. If you are looking for something comfortable to put your feet up on you may want to go the ottoman route, if you have a lot of liner lines in the space you may want to opt for a circle or oval style. So figure out how you want to use a table and then move onto styling it. The coffee table I have pictured is from Wicker Emporium which is a really beautiful boutique like furniture store here on the East Coast. This table in particular really caught my eye, it's from the Aberdeen Suar Collection and it has this beautiful live edge and grain in it.



There are a few things I always keep in mind when I am styling coffee tables, a mix or heights, textures and layers keep your table looking fresh and interesting without being to over done. I love to have something for some height like a large vase, or something organic like a plant. I love having something sculptural which can be driftwood, a sculptural object layered over books etc. Finally I love having a bowl or tray to sort of corral those items that we need a place for, remotes, coasters etc.

I have put together some examples of ways you can style your table to hopefully inspire you and show you a variety of ways you can give the same table a different look by simply switching up the decor on it.
