We’re all for mixing and matching aesthetics, especially when they’re as distinctive as the materials of this ultra chic coffee table.

Look for a table with a sculptural base and glass top for an eclectic addition. Keep tabletop decor minimal to aim the focus on the base. We love the amazing wood on this one!

A dark, plush couch goes magically well with a clean glass table. Opposites attract, right?

The combination of framed artwork, monochromatic furniture, and a sleek glass table immediately looks artistic. A

clear table

won’t take attention away from what you’re displaying on the walls.

Just because your table is glass doesn’t mean you have to go modern with the decor. The mint green metal frame on this one feels old, yet still looks streamlined.

Don’t add a heavy wooden coffee table to an already dark room. Instead, lighten up the space with thin glass table. The result is unexpectedly glamorous.

Let a clear coffee table be the blank background for pretty candles, magazines, souvenirs, or flowers to take center stage.

Hiding cute poufs under a clear coffee table is a great way to maximize space. Not only can poufs easily add color and interest to the space, they also offer extra seating for guests.


If you already have color and patterns in your couch, pillows, rug, and display items, it’s a great idea to consider a clear table. It will put the focus on the statement pieces you already have and won’t add any extra visual clutter.

A lucite table automatically highlights whatever you place on top. Curate a select stack of books that inspire you, and set them out for guests to flip through.

Put large baskets under a simple lucite table for easy, organized storage. Baskets with tops are great for hiding clutter, or leave the basket open and fold soft throw blankets inside.

Use an acrylic trunk as a coffee table and fill it with something you want to display–cool books, stacks of magazines, or even pieces of wood.


Similarly, rooms full of masculine pieces like leather, dark wood, and low lighting pair incredibly well with a light, simple coffee table.

If you love your rug, don’t cover it with a boring table! Keep the focus on your favorite piece with a glass table that won’t interrupt the view.

The best thing about a clear table? They’re timeless. As your style evolves, your glass or acrylic table can adapt to any other decor you mix with it.
