A coffee table is many things: a place to set your drink a footrest somewhere to stash the remote and — of course — a beautiful decorative addition to your living room. Or at least it has the potential to be all of these things. Your coffee table can also become a cluttered mess if you aren’t careful or a drab disappointment if you’re scared to get a little creative. To help you achieve style success I’ve put together some helpful guidelines with specific situations so you can master the art of decorating a coffee table.
Don’t forget when styling a glass coffee table that it’s not just about what goes on top but also what goes below. A see-through table practically demands a graphic rug. Try a black-and-white rug and use similarly stark accents in differing shapes or leave the top completely undressed and let the rug be the star of the show.
