Choose a complementary colour to create harmony in a room. To make the most out of your choice, go for a contrasting one. Imagine a blue room with an orange coffee table. It works because it adds interest and pop to a decor. You can get a similar effect by mixing styles.
As with any vignette, variety helps to create interest, and styling the coffee table is no exception! A grouping of items with varying heights, textures, and shapes creates a beautiful display. Try using something tall (like a vase of flowers), something short (a small sculpture or stack of books), something hard (like glass or ceramic), and something soft (plants, flowers, or another organic material). When grouped together, the items take on a somewhat organic and undefined shape.
Sometimes a coffee table that isn’t the standard height or width is exactly what a room needs. In this instance a very low coffee table creates a crisp horizontal plane in the foreground, offsetting the long horizontal line of the credenza in the background. A higher table would have blocked the view of the credenza and competed with it; the varying heights add interest.
A rectangular table is the classic form. It works because most sofas are the same shape. And it maximises the space. Everyone sitting on the sofa can reach it easily. It’s a great option if you have a smaller living room.
