Coffee Table styling can quickly be forgotten and end up as a place to store for our remotes after a long Netflix Binge.
After a long day, it can be easy to empty pockets and purses leaving a trail of junk strewn across the table. I’ve been there. When we have small amounts of room, this coveted table space can be precious real estate in the living room. Here we delve a bit deeper into coffee table decor and how to style a memorable coffee table in the living room! Make the coffee table come alive with cuteness using these home decor tips.
Glass + Marble Top Coffee Table
First up, the coffee table itself! For feminine home accessories, I reach for delicate materials that look chic and stand the test of time. Marble coffee table tops and glass coffee tables are a great center piece!
Succulents, Small Plants + Pots
Succulents and small easy to care for plants are the easiest to set and forget! Especially when paying attention to cute pots and plant accessories!
Add Greenery to Coffee Table Decor by Dried Flowers or Pampas Grass
Try your luck with already dried flower bundles such as lavender or cotton. I also love the ultra feminine look of dried wheat stalks and ivory Pampas Grass.
Large Coffee Table Books
Displaying large arty books on the coffee table add volume as well as an interesting read for whoever occupies the couch. Stack 3-5 books with various widths to display your interests vibrantly. I love Art, Photography and Fashion books as they are full of images; heavy and fun to gaze through from time to time. If interior design or typography is more your thing, then include those topics!
Bowls for Display
Bowls are cute accents to display small items. Be sure that your bowl doesn’t over power the table in size.
Delicate Trays + Baskets
Trays can add a delicate contrast to a surface! Using mirrored trays against the countertop
Again, candles are an interior decorators favorite as they pack a two punch of looking great and smelling even better. Candlemakers these days have come a long way from the Yankee Candle at the local mall.

Play around with colored vases or clear for personal shape. I find that when coffee tables are littered with beautiful things, the result can turn messy very quickly. Opt for a clear vase to house those flower arrangements. If you’re on a more minimal kick, then perhaps a statement vase will add more color to your spread.
Coasters don’t need to be a bore. Find functional and cute coasters that accent the room, stack for storage and maintain your table for years to come. Here are some ultra cute favorites.
Little boxes can store those pesky must haves like remotes or match books for candles.
Accessories & Table Accents
Small statues, matchbox holders, unique candle holders or sculptures are sure to add some fun to any coffee table styling! Pro tip : Look for unique pieces when you’re on vacation to bring home with you!
Don’t forget to add personality! Accents and small details really make any coffee table.
Styling a coffee table is certainly a feat and takes time! I like to organize, live with, and then re-organize my coffee table as years go on. You can fill the boxes with treasures from your travels and sentimental nicknacks to display for all that enter your home! Don’t let a small living room stop you from chasing your dreams!
