Minimal Coffee Table Styling

Lavishly decorated coffee tables are beautiful for holidays and special occasions, or in a room you don’t use that often. But for the everyday, minimal-fuss decor on your coffee table can offer plenty of style with the practicality you need. Here are the basic ways to style your coffee table – and remember, less decor is more!

Glass jars and bowls are decorative in almost any arrangement, and you can add personal flair by filling them with ornaments, lights, potpourri and many other items. The single apothecary jar shown above can be placed next to magazines and books for decorative appeal, without getting in the way of your daily activities.

Trays and trugs are also versatile when it comes to decorating your coffee table, as they are available in a wide variety of sizes and can hold seasonal decoratives, fruit or electronics. If you’re in an apartment or have little counter and table space, a trug or ceramic dish on a coffee table can also serve as a place to keep your keys, money and other miscellaneous items.

Candles always look great on a coffee table, and you can employ pillar candles, tapers with decorative taper holders or tealights to create a romantic or rustic look that is not too over the top. A symmetrical look always works, or you can embellish the space around the candle with a wreath, family photos, collectibles and other small home accents. Flameless candles are ideal for a busy household or if you want a worry-free option, whereas burning candles have the aromatic element for extra appeal.
