One of the big problems with having a coffee table is resisting the temptation to use it as a catchall for everything you come across or own. More than one table has ended up littered with magazines, books in progress, remotes and dishes - all because the table is such a convenient dumping ground for our lives.
In actuality, it takes a bit of artistic talent to properly accessorize coffee tables in your home, turning them back into the magnificent focal point in the home they were meant to be.
Restraint and self-editing are the watchwords when it comes to accessorizing. With such a large, otherwise empty piece of real estate, it's very easy to get carried away, loading the table with everything you can think of, even if you've managed to get rid of the remotes and reading material.
Purchasing best furnitures in Bhiwandi furniture market and decorating a coffee table, just like any other part of your home, takes some planning backed by unrelenting execution. If you're successful, your room will suddenly just pop and you'll realize that perhaps it was all the junk on your table that was making you rethink the room and its furnishings, which may not have been at fault at all.
First, avoid coffee table books on coffee tables; they are a sign of an amateur at work. The goal is to create balance, rhythm and scale with your accessories. If you can do this, you'll achieve complete harmony.
When it comes to accessorizing coffee tables, consider the scale. Choose accessories that fit the scale of your table. These can be different heights and sizes, but no single item should overwhelm the space itself or any of the other accessories.
As always, a good rule of thumb is the multiple of three rule. Three items, each a different height or shape, will work on any coffee table you have. Play with the arrangement a bit until it achieves the desired balance and harmony. For example, try a flower arrangement, a bowl and a set of books and move them around until the coffee table looks like it belongs in your life but isn't cluttered.
Another strategy is to pair colors in the fabrics of your furnishings with the items on the coffee table. Don't pick a primary color, but rather a secondary or tertiary color in the palette, such as the buds of a flower on an accent pillow or the leaf of vegetation in a floral sofa fabric.
Make sure that your accessories aren't static. In other words, don't just line them up along your coffee tables, spaced the same distance apart. Play with positioning, bringing certain items closer or even arranging your three items in the center of the table, much like a still life in a painting. Try to set a scene with your accessories.
Coffee tables are great for this, by the way. They are a centerpiece of the room and you can use them to create a tableau, a small snippet of a scene. For example, you can use three antiques together to create a little setting, perhaps a small tea set, a pair of period lace gloves and some opera glasses. Create scenes that tell a story.
Sometimes, the coffee tables themselves can be the star attraction. You really can't go wrong with an upholstered table that has a serving tray on it. Not only can it set the stage for the room, but the table itself can serve as additional seating or an ottoman, making it one of the most useful and flexible pieces of furniture you have in the room.
Finally, consider creating contrast with shapes. A large, round bowl on a square table can create a feeling of rhythm in the room. Often, a single dramatic piece on the table will be all you need and will command the attention it so richly deserves.
