The warmth of the wood gives the atmosphere that cozy touch that makes you don't want to be anywhere else.

To achieve this, it is not necessary to resort to a table made of this material. A composition based on natural wood pieces will suffice: candle holders, candlesticks, boxes ...

Here, in addition, a crystal lantern was added whose rope harmonizes with the set, exposed on a tray that recalls the kitchen cutting boards.

It is an idea of ​​the company of home staging HS Decor The table with glass envelope is from Vical Home.

2 vases in duplicate

Coffee tables with mirror envelopes have the gift of reflecting light and duplicating the elements that you place on them.

Interior designer Víctor Zorita, from the Backsteen studio, decorated this table with few pieces so as not to recharge it and chose ethereal materials, such as this pair of glass vases with flowers. Next to them appears a very current character, the golden lobster, and its lower part is reflected in the glass so you can see it in 360º.

4 On a fluffy base

That pouf on which you stretch your legs can become a coffee table.

Interior designer Jordi Vayreda chose this model, gray and wide, which allows a wooden tray to be placed on the surface - either round, rectangular or square - which, in turn, is decorated. And with what? With the accessories you prefer. A safe bet are those that convey the feeling that we are in a living room, such as coffee cups, candle holders or vases that leave the stalks of their flowers in sight.

5 Industrial style

And what to do if the table top is already decorated? Keep it clear so that nobody can stop looking at it. As in this case, in which the recycled sheet table makes the living room more fun with its powerful color, in the same range of the brick wall.

Decorate it with light pieces, such as the transparent glass vase that does not prevent the vision of the surface. A useful tip for copying is that the yellow flowers match the TV cabinet in the background.

6 Sustainable philosophy

The tables made with wooden pallets they carry an implicit message: recycle to save the planet.

This model, designed by interior architect Lucía del Barrio Pérez del Molino, has been completed with a glass envelope and wheels.

Its style, fusion of industrial and rustic, will harmonize with a decoration like this, a bleached wood branch and a tray of ethnic design in copper finish, Los Peñotes.

7 Play contrast

Success in the relationship between a coffee table and its decoration, can be based on enhancing differences, whether in shape or color.

Here, for example, the straight lines of the table are softened with the sinuous, round-shaped candle holders. Although the material in them is common, the wood, the candlesticks lacquered in red and orange add color and make your day.

The plus of style? The chromatic wink to books on the shelf, in the same tones.

9 More than one

Having several coffee tables raises the question: should all, some or none, be decorated?

Any of the options is valid, provided there is a link between them or with the rest of the room.

The Deleite Design studio here only decorated two of them with glass vases and flowers, both real and shaped.

The nesting tables fit under each other, but in this case, their peculiar sinuous design seems to assemble them, as a puzzle, as if the three pieces were one.
