Round Wooden Coffee Table Decorating Tips

Figuring out how to decorate a round wooden coffee table can leave you at wit’s end. I have compiled a few tips to help you style and add beauty to your table which is going to spice up your living room. It’s important to note that there are no set or defined rules to styling a round wooden coffee table, these are however, guidelines to steer you in the right direction.

Keep the Balance

When decorating a round coffee table, keep in mind the size of the table. Too large or tall items can overwhelm your table and throw it out of balance with the rest of your living room. Moderate sized objects like magazines, models of famous landmarks, trays or a bouquet of flowers are very appropriate. The opposite holds true for large round wooden tables.

Round Tables Love Symmetry

Three stacks of 3 to 4 books of varying sizes or 3 small potted plants with a book or a pile of books at their center could be arranged in symmetry so there are equal angles between them. When  accessorizing your table, a symmetrical arrangement of 3 to 4 items or groups of items would be lovely.

Trays are Great

Not only do they add color to the wooden finish of your table, they also serve as vessels for other accessories. You could try piling a book or two in an oval tray and topping it off with your remote control or a magnifying glass; virtually, something small and catchy to the eyes.

Be Magical

As seen in the movies, candles are oftentimes associated with magic, why not go magical! A square tray with four lighted up candles in square glass candle jars at the four corners – a candle jar for each corner of the tray can give your living room a magical feel.

Hopefully, these tips have planted or nurtured some ideas in your mind. I bet it has. There are several options to choose from in styling a wooden coffee table, exercise patience and you’ll discover one that suits your style. Remember, “Rome wasn’t built in a day”.
