What is on your coffee table?

Coffee table styling is one of my favorite things to do -- the coffee table or ottoman in a room can be a focal point. It can be a reflection of your likes, travels and collections. They can also be the perfect spot to prop your feet, stack your favorite books  or sit down with a drink. I get questions all of the time from clients and friends about what makes the perfect coffee table and how to make it  beautiful and functional. Here are just a few of my favorites from recent project... take a look! 
This ottoman is layered with a throw, books and pretty objects. 
 I love the colors in this tufted top. With a tray, it functions as a coffee table too. 
 Lucite or acrylic tables allow the rug to shine and don't take up visual space so they can make an area seem bigger. 
  Always, always do fresh REAL flowers in pretty small vases (or group small bud vases together) for a pop of color. 
Trays add color and compartmentalize the surface. Trays allows you to break up the space. You can find them at art stores (spray paint wooden trays in a fun color and line with a pretty paper or wallpaper). You can also use a framed mirror as a tray and remove the hanging hardware from the back. 
 I love to add candles with great scents in pretty jars. 
 This is my personal coffee table. I love to flip through coffee table books (these can reflect interests: travel, interior design, gardening, cooking....). There are tons of beautiful books. Stack them and add sculptural elements on top to ground them. 
We have so many great accessories at The Coop right now.... just looking for a coffee table of their own. We are open by appointment and by chance....
