A well-styled coffee table can serve as a focal point in any room, adding style and elegance to the space.
The best coffee tables are both stylish and functional, containing a great balance of materials, colors, and textures.
Here are some tips to keep in mind when styling your own:

A tray can go a long way. It helps create differentiation and texture on a coffee table, and gives the space
a more organized and purposeful look. It's also a great way to keep the space clutter-free.

Mix, match, and stack your coffee table with a few of your favorite titles.
They provide a refreshing breath of color and pattern to the decor, while also providing guests with
a plethora of reading material to page through.

I'm a huge fan of color and pattern when it comes to decor, and my coffee table is no exception!
I think every room can benefit from a touch of metal, and this bowl from Canvas provides just the right
touch of gold. It also adds a dynamic layer to the stacks of books.

Another thing every coffee table needs are items of varying heights.
They provide an interesting and well-balanced feel, avoiding a one-dimensional aesthetic.

A little something quirky never hurts either! Coasters are a must and with so many gorgeous options out there,
it should be easy to find a set that will complement your coffee table decor.

When it comes to the decor there is no right or wrong – you just have to go with what makes you happy!
