When styling a coffee table keep the following items in mind:
Something Living- Adding a small plant give the coffee table a great texture.
Something with Height- if you don’t have an object with a little height, try adding some books underneath to give it that volume.
Have a tray- whether it is holds your stack of books or it holds your “something living” it adds a nice grounding center to your accessories.
Have a candle- it not only looks nice, but if you light it, it will fill the room with some delicious scent of your choice.
