Floral Arrangements

Flowers and greenery add texture, brightness, and life into an interior design. If you don't like swapping live floral arrangements out regularly, then you could utilize paper or fabric flowers instead. These kinds of flowers have come a long way - it can be hard to tell the difference in some cases! 


A wonderful way to contain a portion of your coffee table display is to use trays to hold the accessories. They can help to give your room a less cluttered look by grouping things together on the tray. This also allows items to quickly and easily be removed from the table if you need more open space, and the tray can come in handy if you are serving refreshments to guests. 


An excellent way to incorporate accessories of different heights for more visual interest is to add a cluster of candles of various sizes. They allow you to add color, and when lit they give an inviting and warm glow to the room. Using scented candles also gives you the chance to affect the overall ambiance. 

Large Books

There are some kinds of books that are specifically designed for coffee tables. Over-sized books with large photos are a staple of coffee tables. This gives added interest to your space and gives guests an opportunity to look through the books and inspire interesting conversation.
