Tricks of the Trade: The Coffee Table

Coffee Table Musts

A coffee table is such a great opportunity to insert life and personality in your living room. Simply by adding flowers to a coffee table, for instance, the whole room can come together. Because of this, I always like to have my coffee table styled to perfection. Here’s what I do:

The Musts

Stack of books – Keep image-heavy books so your guests can flip through when they are sitting in your living room. The books should stacked on top of each other with the largest at the bottom. Stay tuned for a post all about my favorite coffee table books.

Candle – I always have at least one candle on my coffee table, surrounded by matches so I can easily light it. My favorite is the sake lemon flower sent from Voluspa.

Fresh flowers – I know, I know, this is a bit of an investment, but I promise it’s worth it. Nothing makes a house feel more like a home than fresh flowers.

A great tray – Because I’m a big proponent of housing small things in one larger thing, I love trays for coffee tables. The tray will hold your bouquet, candle, and little thotchkes that you pick up along the way! Mine is from West Elm.
