The focus of any living or family room lies in its two predominant pieces of furniture: the sofa and the coffee table, the latter of which usually ends up as a stand-in dining table or a respite for remote controls. These two items are usually the first people seek to purchase when they have their first place and are commonly the first to be upgraded from garage sale finds to more costly, investment pieces. Whether your coffee table is a DIY thrift store find, a pair of seven dollar Ikea end tables, or the statement piece you splurged on, it’s worth taking the time to decorate and style it like you would any other area of your home. After all, it’s frequently the centerpiece of many homes, especially if you live in a smaller house or apartment.
To make styling a coffee table an easy task, keep these five items in mind:
1. Natural elements to add color and bring the outdoors in (especially you, city dwellers). Flowers (fresh or dried), shells and scented, artificial pine boughs are just a few ideas.
2. Candlelight to add ambiance and possibly a fresh scent to the room. Gallows has Lampe Berger Paris that would be the perfect decor piece and also make the room smell fresh. Lampe Berger purifies and cleans the air to get rid of the bad smells, it doesn’t just mask the smell.
Just like with styling any area in your home, don’t rush this process. Find the pieces you love, the books you’ll read time and time again, and the scented candle you’ll find yourself lighting night after night.
The Gallows has so many great pieces that would be a great addition to your coffee table. Come in and see all of our great ideas.
