Do you have a coffee table that you think is too big? You can follow the example of a house in Lattingtown, New York. A designer named Meg Braff added a tray on the coffee table in his reading room. A large coffee table looks a little smaller by coating it using a rattan tray. Your coffee table also looks more attractive.
- Turn on the lanterns
A lamp is usually placed on a coffee table, as is the idea of this concept. A designer named T.Keller Donovan who designed the living room in the Nantucket cottage took a fresh contemporary concept.

If you are holding an event inside the house, you just have to light a candle in it and your coffee table will look more vibrant.
- Include natural elements
Designer Robert Stilin likes elemental and natural objects, such as antique wooden bowls, magnifying glass with horns on the living room coffee table at his home. Aside from being an accessory, these objects can function to accompany you to sip your and guests’ drinks. This is a pretty unique idea that you can apply in arranging an indoor table.
- Try simple settings
Other solutions you can do on your coffee table by adding flowers that are elegant and easy to move, such as a house in San Francisco by a designer named Orlando Diaz-Azcuy. He recommends choosing monochromatic and shiny colors. Equipped with elongated sofas and club chairs that feel comfortable in the room.

In arranging a coffee table you also need to pay attention to the height of each object that you put on the table. The designer named Barbara Barry in the design of the coffee table at the Corona del Mar home was very concerned about the composition. All the decorations inside can be neatly arranged and look beautiful. Plus the use of a glass-lined table is perfect for matching with a cream sofa surrounding it.
