Today, I'm talking about coffee table styling -- and sharing some of my techniques to make your coffee table vignette look unique and visually interesting.
The biggest elements for great coffee table style are texture, color, varying heights of objects -- and a dash of the unexpected.
In this project, we started with a gorgeous coffee table book by Amelia Handegan.
We layered and draped some color and texture on top of the book with gorgeous oversized glass beads that were sourced from our local flea market. However, there is a great source on Etsy.com called The Bead Chest that sells a huge offering of colorful glass beads.
The vases that we used to add height (and a little texture with succulents) each offered a little unexpectedness - one with a unique shape and the other with a marbleized finish.
The vases were sourced from a favorite, local store here in Lafayette, CA., called Indigo & Poppy.
These are a few unique and artfully shaped vases that would look great on a coffee table:
One final thought -- Add fresh flowers, succulents, or an orchid to bring some life to your coffee table.
