How to: Style a Coffee Table

Chairish recently reached out to me about creating a style board centered around one of their coffee tables. There were so many great ones to choose from, but I decided on this beautiful French antique pine coffee table as a base for my style board. I love how much history and rustic charm it has! A coffee table is the center of any living room, so the goal is to make it stylish and functional. Add something structural like this rounded footed bowl. It's the perfect contrast to this very angular table and it can hold a ton of things such as polaroids, remotes, and other small trinkets. This ceramic open hand is perfect for holding palo santo, rings, or sage. Add a plant for a touch of life and color. Airplants are beautiful and really easy to take care of. With a coffee table this rustic, it's good to mix in some metal accents like these brass coasters to break up the styles. A beautiful candle is a must -- and don't forget the matches! Since they will be on display, use cute vintage matchboxes or find cutes ones like theseYou can never have too many art books. Trust me on this one. They serve as a piece of art, give guests something to look through, and add a whole lot of personality. And let's be honest, make you seem much more interesting. Wink wink. My picks are Frida Kahlo photographs and Union mag. And to tie it all together, add the perfect rug for texture and warmth!
