There are countless ways to style a coffee table, but if there’s one common thread it’s that it’s all in the details. When it comes to finishing an interior design client’s coffee table with the Pulp Final 15, we always personalize, add plenty of unique details and keep it functional. Good design showcases a client’s personality and elevates everyday living — there’s no detail that doesn’t serve a purpose, whether it be for aesthetic or organization. But it’s not all about the coffee table books… see three ways to style your coffee table beyond the books.

How To Style a Coffee Table

  1. Start with a tray. If we start styling a coffee table anywhere, it’s with the tray. Even the simplest of accessories will feel elevated when layered on top of a tray. Styling magic!
  2. Add dimension and flair. Create dimension by adding sculptures and accessories of varying height and material. Accessories should work to draw the eye and express personality, so we like to use coffee table books and objects that bring our design clients’ passions to life.
  3. Keep it functional. You’ll be living here, after all! Layer in smaller catchalls and bowls to the space to add extra options for stylish storage.
