Coffee tables are a key piece of furniture that most of us have in our homes! The key is to make these tables be functional yet finding a way to keep them styled in an aesthetically appealing way. Often being able to incorporate a bit of storage as well can be essential as well!

Many of the same items that you use in your coffee table can also be used for other tables in your home. Dining room and kitchen table decorating can all have similar concepts to decorating just on a slightly larger scale depending on the size of the table.

Another option involving flowers is to use multiple vases. Vases grouped in odd numbers or lined up down the table can look so pretty. Place single stems in the vases to get the biggest bang for your dollar.

Styling a Coffee Table Using Beautiful Antiques

It’s no secret that so many of us love to fill our homes with antiques. One of the reasons is that we feel a lot of these pieces look beautiful even on their own! It’s an easy way to decorate and often looks great year-round. For an extra touch, I often love to fill the antique containers with a few linens. Ticking linens or antique linens are the beautiful layered in a container.

Here’s a little trick … you don’t need to fill the entire container with the “pretty linens.” Place a plastic container on the bottom of the antique container or use an old towel to occupy the space at the bottom and then place the nice decorative linens on the top!

The easiest way to give you some more coffee table décor ideas is to break this down into the seasons! I love to live in a 4-season climate and love to base a large part of their décor around this idea.

This season is when we switch to those warm, cozy vibes. It’s always a good ideas to bring in more texture for these cooler seasons!

  • For the Autumn months fill a container with apples or pumpkins for your coffee table decor.
  • Or if you can find pretty pumpkins you can simply place a few on the centre of your table on their own.
  • Bring out the branches. If you saved some pussy willows from the Spring you can bring them back out.
  • Dried flowers. Flowers like larkspur and Globe Thistle dry so well and look great dried and placed in a container!
  • Switching between Fall and Winter. Simply fill containers with cranberries or pomegranates because the colours and the fruits transition between seasons so well.
