One of the easiest ways to give your living room an impactful update is to refresh your coffee table decor. It feels like there’s so many different options out there these days, so I’ve compiled a list of fifteen favorite coffee table decor ideas to (hopefully) make it a bit less overwhelming.
If you have the space, a layered look can add great dimension and interest. Try stacking a few big coffee table books on one side with candlesticks on the other side for some height. Once you have the larger items in place, start adding the smaller items (think: potted plants, vases, matches, etc.) into the mix. If you’re working with a smaller table surface, adding a tray can keep everything looking clean and simple.
Coffee tables are the perfect place to show off your design skills and creative ideas. I personally love to add in simple touches of seasonal or holiday decor during spring and winter to bring it up one more notch!
These handcrafted ceramic bowls come in both black and white. They could be filled with seasonal items to brighten up your room or just kept simple as they’re just as beautiful on their own.
If you aren’t sure where to start, this oval wooden tray is the perfect first item for your coffee table. It brings warmth to any space and its unique oval shape will be sure to catch any eye.
This timeless candle douter is both practical and stylish. Say goodbye to wax messes by using this every time you’re ready to put out your candle.
