Featuring a new, empty coffee table in the middle of your living room is like an art gallery throwing an extravagant event just to showcase a blank canvas. You know something is supposed to go on top of your new coffee table, you just have no idea what that something is. You have a grand vision of featuring items that complement your home’s décor, that entertain your guests, and that communicate something about you and your personal style. You want to do so much, but you only have this tiny, coffee table-sized space to express yourself. Have no fear new coffee table owners, AllModern is here! We have a simple (yet thorough) three-step process to decorate your new coffee table, with plenty of examples and pictures to guide you along the way. By the time you’re through reading this, you’ll have a far better idea what and how to personalize your coffee table.

Step 1: The Style Pieces

While the living room is probably where you’ll spend the majority of time with guests, friends, and relatives, at the end of the day it is your living room. Your coffee table décor should strike a balance between showcasing pieces that serve to interest and engage your guests with pieces that are personally meaningful and useful. To do just that, we’ve come up with a list of style elements you can borrow and adapt for your own living room.

While we'll go into each style element in greater detail below, a brief overview should help reinforce how they complement each other:

  • Intellectual or Creative Element
  • Whimsical Element
  • Natural Element
  • Scented Element
  • Seasonal Element

Consider which elements you might like to incorporate into your own tabletop décor and what pieces you have in mind or already own that you can do so with. As you start conceptualizing actual pieces to use on your own coffee table, make sure to think of pieces with contrasting heights, colors, textures, layers, and levels.

Intellectual or Creative Element

Incorporating an intellectual or creative element into your coffee table decor is the perfect way to create an attention-grabbing conversation starter for you and your guests. Oftentimes, the first thing that comes to mind when people think of an intellectual display on a coffee table is a coffee table book, but there are tons of other unique options you can feature instead of a book. If you’re drawing a blank right now and just don’t think you have something that fits that description, think again! Consider the interesting pieces you’ve accumulated over the years, be it from a foreign country you traveled to, a creative symbol you find especially profound, or a family heirloom with a storied past. We all have pieces from our past that would both look great featured in our home and act as the perfect focal point for interesting, meaningful conversations.

Lauren from Blesser Home
Books and magazines can be great conversation starters, especially when they look as great as these decoratively bound ones from Lauren at Blesser House
Kari Anne Thistlewood Farms

Jacquelyn from Lark & Linen
A thought-provoking novelty, like this wonderfully abstract star-shaped figure from Jacquelyn at Lark & Linen, can add a much needed creative component to your table

Whimsical Element

A whimsical or light-hearted element can add a layer of delightful personalization to your coffee table. While the intellectual piece you feature provides one attention-grabbing fixture of conversation, a whimsical piece provides another lighter one. Depending on your mood, and that of your guests, one piece may provide an easier avenue of conversation than the other. The whimsical piece could be figurine or symbol you wandered across in a flea market one day, or it could be an especially creative piece your child made in art class. There really isn’t an overarching definition of THE whimsical element, and that’s part of its charm. Regardless of the form it takes, your whimsical piece is sure to attract attention and elicit a response.

Natural Element

Adding a natural element to your tray can liven up your coffee table and the room around it, not only serving as a visual enhancement but a mood enhancer as well. By evoking the great outdoors, fresh air, and the open sky, a natural element can soothe and relax you and your guests. Whether it’s a potted plant, a bouquet of flowers, or seashells you collected on your last trip to the beach, natural pieces inspire a more relaxed atmosphere and mood. A natural element is an essential part of any living space, and what better place is there to feature that element than in the centerpiece of your living room.

Scented Element

All too often, the smell of the room around us is something we fail to appreciate. While your other coffee table accouterments appeal to the more visual and cerebral senses, a scented element caters to our generally underserved sense of smell. An easy way to incorporate scent into your coffee table design is with a scented candle. Candles not only exude a pleasant smell, but their height, color, and texture also provide an excellent contrast to the pieces around them.

Seasonal Element

There are two types of home decorators: the “set it and forget it” type and the “slight adjustor.” The “set it and forget it” decorator takes on a decorating job, gets it done, and moves on to the next one. On the other end of the spectrum, a “slight adjustor” could have finalized their home décor months ago, but is still experimenting with different colors, materials, and other final touches. For the “slight adjusters” among us, a seasonal element that’s ever-evolving is a perfect fit. You can assemble an altogether beautiful coffee table tray with just enough space for a seasonal piece you swap in and out throughout the year. Leaving a seasonal spot is a great way to balance year-round décor with a mix of pieces that reflect the changing seasons and holidays.

Step 2: The Coffee Table Tray

Unimposing as it may be, a coffee table tray plays a vital role in the coffee table styling process.

A tray serves to break up open space

Placed in the middle of the vast, empty stretch of a new coffee table, a tray serves to break up the open space with a platform that both unifies and showcases your personal and decorative style pieces. The balance between the open space of the table and the contained space of the tray complement each other, providing the perfect foundation for your personal touch. That being said, there are two ways you can procure a coffee table tray: you can make one yourself with the handy DIY tutorials we’ve featured below or you can purchase one.

Making a Coffee Table Tray

For the more DIY inclined among us, making your own coffee table tray can be a great weekend project. If the idea of spending a couple of hours lovingly restoring or crafting a tray table with wood, glue, and sheer determination doesn’t intimidate you, this is what you can accomplish (with the help of a couple of great DIY posts of course):

Buying a Coffee Table Tray

If the thought of building something is a foreign and altogether terrifying prospect, buying a tray table is quick and easy. Coffee table trays can also be referred to as “serving trays” or “decorative trays,” and come in a wide range of materials, shapes, patterns, and colors.

Balance the open and enclosed spaces on your coffee table

For a more modern aesthetic, metal and glass trays are a natural fit, while wood may appeal to those who prefer more rustic decor. You never can go wrong complementing the color of your coffee table tray (and other small household décor pieces) by playing off the shade of your living room walls. Whichever tray you ultimately settle on should be large enough to accommodate the accent and style pieces you choose to feature, but small enough not to dominate the top of your coffee table. Remember, the idea is to balance the open and enclosed spaces on your table. Once you’ve settled on a tray that’ll look perfect on your new coffee table, it’s time to put your final personal touch!

Step 3: The Personal Touch

While all of our coffee table décor suggestions to date have asked you to balance both personal and style considerations, this last section is where you really make your personal mark. While guests will cycle through your home, you’re there to stay. Your coffee table should be a decorative piece and conversation starter, and it should make your life easier. Think about what you do most around your table, and equip it with things that make those activities better or easier. If you spend a lot of time on your couch watching old movies, carve out space on your table tray for your remote control. If you prefer to curl up and dive into a good novel after a long day’s work, then place your reading glasses and favorite book on your coffee table. When it comes to decorating a coffee table, strive for one that is as functional for you as it is beautiful and engaging to your guests.
