The coffee table is the central piece and often the focal point of the room. It’s a place for your family to get-to-gather or a showcase for your books and ornaments, it is a place where you might finish your last-minute work or where your child does their homework
But by simply placing the table there doesn’t mean that your work here is done. Most of us have trouble deciding what they should put on the table. Well, here are a few options to choose from –
Candles on the coffee table create a cozy and romantic atmosphere in the room. When placed on the coffee table, they add mood and dimensions to any conversation on the coffee table when placed on it. Even when they are not lit they still make lovely decorations and they help create a soothing and tranquillizing atmosphere in the room.
Flowers are one of the most popular option to put on a coffee table. People like having fresh plants and flowers in their home. Not only do they smell beautiful but they also add color. Putting a beautiful vase on your coffee table filled with lovely flowers would definitely make that spot a focal point. They are also a great way to break up a monochromatic living room.
The quote, “There is no friend as loyal as a book” speaks volumes about the significance of books in our lives. As friends, they should be well chosen. Stacked books not only add character but also become great conversation starters.
Natural elements other than being functional also add personality to the room. A wooden bowl, coral etc. are a few additions which can be used. Natural elements other than being functional also add personality to the room. A wooden bowl, coral etc. are a few additions which can be used.
