Coffee tables are a key feature of any lounge; from sleek and modern to quirky and cool, we take a look at four ways to style this timeless piece of furniture.
The Creative Abode
You can’t go wrong with light wood – it’s simple, clean and easy to work with, especially when it comes to adding bolder accessories. If you’re feeling a little bit more creative, adding small pops of colour will switch it up and make all the difference, whether that be a candle holder, a vase or some statement books.

The Stylish Pad
Combine metallic accents with rich hues to create a luxurious feel in the home. Darker shades can typically make a room look smaller but done right it can look really effective. When working with a more confined space, don’t rule out experimenting with deep reds, blues and greens, whilst a glass coffee table will open up your space, rather than dividing it. Add brass and copper accessories to make your coffee table the centre of attention.
