Magazines and books are often key features on a coffee table. They give guests something to look at if they are waiting and also can be decoration for your centerpiece. It can add pops of color, pattern, and height to your coffee table, too. I absolutely love the E. Lawrence, Ltd Designer Reclaimed Books. Each decorative item is bound on a different book, so no two are alike. Another great option is home decor books, like the Arts of Elegance.

Add Storage

Often a coffee table is a landing spot for remote controls, keys, magazines and any number of other small objects. Though these items don’t take up a lot of space, they can easily create an untidy look on your table. Use boxes and baskets to store all of your loose items and keep your table looking neat. Lastly, add a tray to help keep keep all of your decor pieces together.


Add a calming and cozy mood to your living space by adding candles. Use different sizes and shapes to add dimension. Plus, if you have children place the flammables candles so you and your guests can be worry-free.


When it comes to decorating, you can always keep things feeling fresh by incorporating nature into your home. Whether you use real or silk flowers, these accents are refreshing and inviting. Place your flowers or plants in a wooden bowl, vases, or a water pitcher.
