Coffee Table Styling in 3 Easy Steps

When it comes to styling the perfect coffee table, I am here to tell you that it’s really not that daunting of a task. You got this! There is a simple “science” to arranging the perfect pieces so just follow my tips below and you’ll be on your way to the most perfectly styled coffee table: 

Select Your Books   Start low with a stack of coffee table books that jive with your style, flow and ones that you would actually read! One of my favorite statement books is the Tom by Tom Ford book because it’s black and you can never go wrong adding black to your decor. Start with two piles of books (if you have the width on your coffee table) and make one pile taller than the other. Add a tray underneath for extra style. 

Add Height – You want to make sure that you add height to your coffee table so that not everything is on the same plane. This creates a visual interest for the eye. So stop by CB2 (my favorite store for affordable accessories) or shop below and choose a vase or two that are similar in shape but varying in height to create that perspective. Pop in some faux or real flowers every now and then to add volume and color. 

Add Texture – Once you have your books, vases and flowers in place, add a few decorative accessory pieces like a tray, candles, coasters or pretty little objects with fun color and texture weaved in for the finishing touch and you’re done!
