The coffee table typically occupies prime real estate in a room and offers an expansive surface on which to display sculptures, treasured books, antique boxes, and anything else that has personal value. Since you're not knocking any holes in the walls, the composition can be fluid—an ever-evolving art gallery—and rules of coffee table decor are so adaptable that there's no doubt you already have all you need to create an inviting tablescape.
Think "Tray Chic"
Seemingly disparate objects come together in an orderly way when corralled on a single, elegant tray. Vases and votives of all shapes and finishes work beautifully here. The lush flower arrangement softens the composition, and the red votives add dramatic punch and cohesion with the other red accents in the room.
