The living room coffee table is often the center of the room thus a major focal and gathering point. At once functional, holding remotes, hair ties, pairs of glasses, and at the same time a display palette for some of your most interesting treasures. There is a method to creating an alluring tablescape, by varying heights, shapes, and textures. In one sense you can even see this space as an art installation.

To assist you in this important final step in decorating, here is a list of the most popular coffee table accessories.
