One of the ways to put the finishing touches in your living room is to style your coffee table with interesting and memorable pieces. The key is to layering and adding without overdoing it and still keeping it organized. Creating something visually pleasing and function can be a challenge but, here are some tips to making your coffee table the centre of attention.
#1. A tray keeps objects organized, it can add a different finish than the coffee table itself and it can add a pop of colour. My ultimate is this signature orange Hermès tray. What a statement piece! The other good thing about a tray is when you have guests over, it’s easy to remove.
#2. Create visual interest using pieces with differing heights. Not everything should be the same height. Use candle sticks and small decorative items, and create the layering effect with items with differing scale, height and size.
#3. Books are such an easy way to add dimension and repeat the colour palette in the room. Make sure you stack books from largest to smallest. Sometimes if you remove the dust jacket on a book, it actually looks better!
#5. Don’t forget about decorating under your table. Place magazines and other small items in beautiful storage boxes under the table. Styling under the table can be just as important as what goes on top.

#6. Remote control clutter can be avoided by placing them in a tray or by hiding them in a small box.
