Ideas For Coffee Table Decorations – A list of coffee table decor ideas that you can mix and match to get your own signature look and breathe a breath of fresh air into your space!
Coffee tables come in different sizes and shapes. Whether it’s a hard surface or something soft like a large ottoman, the style of your coffee table should be interesting and reflect your personal taste. A coffee table is the centerpiece of any room, so it’s the perfect place to display your favorite pieces. Below is a list of suggestions to get you started, followed by some easy ways to bring your ideas to life in your home decor.
Ideas For Coffee Table Decorations
Tip: If you’re shopping for a new coffee table, consider getting a two-tiered one. This lower level doubles your surface space and can be used as storage or to display more of your treasures.
How To Style A Coffee Table
Before we go any further, I want to remind you that what follows is just a set of ideas. There is absolutely no right or wrong way to style a coffee table. Follow your instincts. Use things that speak to you, things that reflect your family’s interests, and most importantly, things that reflect your personal style. I love neutral decor, so I usually use it on our coffee table…with touches of blue, of course. If you’re a color lover, be sure to incorporate it into your coffee table decor. Here’s what you want: When someone walks into a room, they should be able to tell your style just by looking at your coffee table!
The versatility of trays is amazing and they are the perfect starting point for a coffee table vignette. There is no hard and fast rule as to what size or shape should be used. It’s fine to use a round tray on a round table… and it’s equally fine to use a square or rectangular tray.
Trays are your most important layering tool. Start by placing the tray on the coffee table. Everything you add next will have a cohesive and stylish feel because the tray brings everything together. Stack objects on top of each other, do not forget to change the height.

Coffee tables and books go hand in hand. There have been several times in my life when I bought a book simply because I liked the cover. Books with beautiful covers add personality and uniqueness to the coffee table… so gather your most beautiful books or those that have a special meaning and start building. Gardening books, decor books, or flower books are perfect for this!
Think outside the box when it comes to lights. Sure, candles are great, but a candle isn’t the only thing that looks good in a lantern. A small nest filled with eggs, a pot of fresh or artificial greenery, moss balls of various sizes, scented potpourri, pine cones or balls of yarn are just a few suggestions on how to make the lantern interesting.

Bowls and baskets can be used for layering, just like trays, but they add interesting shape and texture. A large neutral bowl can be used literally anywhere in your decor, but it’s an exceptional tool for styling a coffee table. Fill it with greenery or put a pitcher in it for a classic farmhouse look. I’ve had the bowl pictured above for at least 20 years, maybe longer. It was a birthday present from a friend and is one of my most treasured decor accessories. He moves around our house, but most often he lives on our coffee table.

When it comes to layers, baskets do the same thing as bowls, but their superpower is adding texture. If you have a dark coffee table, consider using a light basket for contrast. Add unexpected items and try to include something tall.
The best way to take your coffee table decor to the next level is to incorporate any fresh or faux natural elements. Fresh flowers are always my first choice, but I also like to use artificial greenery or a combination of both. Something green, fresh or artificial, will add life to your coffee table decor that you can’t get any other way.
Natural elements are also a great way to bring in something seasonal. Apple trees bloom in spring, peonies in summer, sunflowers in autumn, pine cones or fresh pine for Christmas. The picture below is of the coffee table in our Sutton Place home when my peonies were in full bloom. It was really easy to do and of all the photos I’ve taken over the years, this is one of my favorites.

Now that you have ideas and inspiration, have fun styling your coffee table! If it’s not quite what you had in mind the first time, be patient. When I feel the need to change the coffee table, it often takes a few days to find the right combination. Just keep editing, adding and organizing. Be brave, try something new and have faith. You will make it! Autumn has come, so do not forget to decorate your house not only outside, but also inside. Everyone has a coffee table in their living room, so decorate it this fall. It is very easy to make it autumnal and cozy, using table fireplaces, pumpkins in jars, flowers, nuts and other natural things. Collect some leaves outside and use them for decoration – or just buy artificial leaves and make them into a decoration. Add glitter and candles and you’re done! Below you will find different ideas in different styles – modern, rustic, minimalist and traditional, enjoy and get inspired!
Match your fall coffee table decor with your room decor and colors. The most popular ideas are farmhouse decor and a neutral color palette, although you can choose any you like. Choose details and containers for your compositions in this style and colors.
