Easy Coffee Table/Ottoman Styling Ideas

2.16.2015

Coffee table decorating is fairly easy for me unlike bookcases. I have created many coffee table vignettes over the years. It's such an easy way to refresh a room with simple changes.

 
In March 2013 I shared vignette creating 101.

In 2012 I shared how I used A Mix of things I collect and placed them in a willow basket.

When I shared the new paint color in the great room in August 2013 I changed up what was in the basket.

Last April the coffee table moved out and this new tufted ottoman moved in so of course I had to come up with a way to style it. I used a tray on the uneven surface to hold some items.

I usually change things up a bit seasonally like adding this little squirrel in the fall.

And greenery and pine cones for Christmas.

It can be as simple as an old dough bowl full of apples.

Or filled with your favorite reads.

So do you struggle with styling your coffee table?
Then you will want to come back this Friday for tons of inspiration as I join eleven design bloggers who will be sharing their coffee table ideas. I'm going to be like a little fish out of water among this group of designers. I can't wait to see what they share.

  2. I don't really have a hard time with coffee table styling, because the only room we have a coffee table in now is the sunroom (used more like a den). One thing I think people do is forget to keep it real. A coffee table is usually a functional thing. We need to make it (let it!) work in our homes. Not just something to hold pretty objects.

  6. All great looks, Kim. It's become fairly easy for me since I do it so frequently in our spaces at the antique mall, but it still takes time to get a look I'm going for just right. Looking forward to your collaboration with the other bloggers.

  10. I love styling the coffee table, which is a very old trunk/box. Right now I have a willow tray that has stacked books, antlers and a small antique trophy. Your vignette looks a lot like mine!

    Thanks for always sharing!

  11. Beautiful ideas Kim. Looking forward to seeing what everyone shares. Our main coffee table is a curio table. So fun to change out with the seasons. However, I do struggle with what to place on top as to not block what is inside.

  18. I frequently change up the coffee table vignettes. My husband would rather have a blank tabletop, but not me. It's like a canvas that needs to be painted. ;-)
    I look forward to the posts on Friday.
