Have you ever walked into a living room without a coffee table? Yeah, they seem awfully bare, huh? A coffee table serves more of a purpose than to just look nice in your living room. In fact, it is where you can lay down a book, place your drink, or even have your children color at.
If you do not have a coffee table in your living room for one reason or another, it is time to think about what you can put in the space to elevate your living room. Not all coffee tables are the same and if you want to move away from the traditional table, consider these options below.
If you like the look of wood or you have a rustic theme in your living room, consider a coffee table that is made out of wood. You have many options available and can have a table made from wooden planks, shipping palettes, old soda boxes, and more.
Fun tables can be anything from a table with a fish tank in the center to a Bohemian drum with a glass top. You can enhance the look of your living room with these pieces while also showing your personality through them. If you do choose to have a fun table in your living room, make sure that it is the focal point of the room.
Instead of a coffee table, you can place a decorative ottoman in your living room. You will find that you can mix and match the patterns and fabrics to help the piece mesh into your home.
If you do not like the idea of a single table in your living room for one reason or another, consider having two small coffee tables in your living room. You can choose tables that are nested or you can choose two in contrasting shades to drawn in your guest’s eye.
These four coffee table ideas will help you style and decorate your living room without the use of a traditional coffee table. If you need help with any of your interior design plans, contact the team at J. Design Group today.
