How to Style Your Coffee Table

Believe it or not, how your coffee table looks, says a lot about you. Are you someone who maximizes all the space available by covering every inch of your coffee table in magazines? Or do you take the more minimal approach and keep it spic and span only allowing a coaster or two to grace its surface? Of course, you might be someone who falls in the middle and no idea that your coffee table was meant to be a statement about you as a person.


If you don’t know where to begin, we have some tips courtesy of Emily Henderson, One Kings Lane style guru, to help you on your journey to a re-styled coffee table on where to start!

  1. A tray goes a long way, use it to corral all of your coffee table items
  2. Don’t be afraid to get a little vertical, vases can do wonders. Get some height!
  3. Hide things in plain sight with the help of adorable storage. Like a cute box to put all those remotes in.
  4. Tiny sculpture like items dress up even the smallest of spaces.
  5. Books – after all that’s what coffee table books are for!
