Decorating coffee tables in your working environment may be primarily based around your own personal preferences, but if you are looking for a few ideas for decorating coffee tables, here’s what we would recommend:
1. Try breaking the surface size of your coffee table up into sections
Breaking the surface size of square coffee tables into quadrants is a great way to make your coffee table appear organised while maximising the space you have to curate a range of items for display. For round coffee tables, it’s best to feature fewer items and pick a central focal point piece for your coffee table. Great focal pieces can include vases, plants, decorative bowls, which can be surrounded by shorter items such as books and other materials.
2. Blend with the other colours and elements in your workspace
Matching the style of other furniture and finishes in your environment is essential when picking a coffee table and its decorations. Coffee tables can lighten up a room, however, they may still need to fit in in some way with your work environment. More modern spaces with lighter colours and softer textures might benefit from a white coffee table or a glass coffee table. Working environments with a lot of wood furniture and cosy office furnishings may benefit from wood coffee tables with richer, darker hues.
3. Try to use objects of varying heights
Playing with the concept of depth of field is a great way to create the illusion of space and some intrigue toward the items on your coffee table. Try placing tall objects placed in the middle or back of your coffee table surrounded by books, and pictures with lower heights to create a sense of depth.
4. Try flowers or low maintenance plants can be essential
Plants bring the feeling of life and warmth into your environment. For those who love plants, and don’t mind maintaining them, there are a wide variety of flowers and other plants you can pick. For those less keen on plants that require maintenance, try jade plants, aloe, ferns, cacti, moss, air plants, and other succulents.
