5 Foolproof Ideas For Coffee Table Styling
Traditionally, homes across Bangalore had a ubiquitous sanmica coffee table, and ever so often, gorgeous vintage pieces that you secretly coveted. Given the plethora of options available now, the question, âWhat do I put on it!â Left to itself, the remote controls will soon take over, and car keys, the old magazine from 2013 etc will follow suit. Itâs time to give the coffee table to makeover it deserves! Thereâs no denying the power of books, flowers and trays. But letâs not discount other dĂ©cor that adds just as much, or maybe even more, flair to your coffee tables!
See the Light
Candlelight that is! Gorgeous candlesticks and tapers add eye-catching glamour. Place them over silver or antique trays, and the gazes of envy shall follow right down to whatâs left of the coffee table to behold.
Hit the Bar
Show off your pretty barware and those cutglass decanters and holders on your coffee table. If youâre not sure where to get these, places like Commercial Street in Bangalore, which have stores that sell only glassware, might have something you like. If youâre keeping these in a tray, be sure to match tray that holds the glasses and bottles in place, to the colours of the coffee table. Itâs all about complements. The compliments will follow!
Sculpt a Stylish Look
Add height and drama to your table with a sculpture that you prefer. Go traditional with Indian folk sculptures or invite luck into your life with delicate lucky charms like the laughing Buddha.
Bring the outdoors in!
If youâre not sure what you can do with that expanse of coffee table space, try a garden variety solution! Succulents are the perfect idea for bringing in a bit of green, as well as interest, to your table top. You can do them as terrariums, or kept in bell jars or even old, recycled jars from the kitchen! There are many nurseries in Bangalore that will make a terrarium customized to your brief, and your lifestyle!

Take a seat, on the table!
What if your coffee table did more than just hold a few curios and get resignedly stained as everyone resolutely refused to use the coasters you gave them? Using a pouf as a coffee table might be the best one yet â the perfect coffee table to actually put your feet up on, and one that easily doubles up as a table top too!
So whatâre you waiting for? Itâs time to turn your coffee table into a conversation starter.
