Have you kept any beloved books from your childhood or recent favorites? Then pair them by author, topic or color to add personality and height to a coffee table, in an affordable way. Terracotta Design Build in Atlanta uses flowers that remind them of the drawings in the books.
Hints of red and blue add layers of depth to the crisp white blank canvas of this living room's walls and furniture. A round coffee table is a nice shape contrast in the middle of the boxier seating area.
A polished wood coffee table reflects the natural light streaming into this contemporary living room. A neutral sofa and leather tufted stools provide seating in front of the fireplace, and plants add color and life to the design.
Acrylic casing holds chipped wood pieces, creating a unique top for this coffee table. The natural wood is a great textural addition to the contemporary surroundings. A blue rug with white spots grounds the space and coordinates with the blue velvet sofa. Hourglass-shaped stools with velvet seats line a bar next to the living area.
A large rug is used to define the living area in this open concept layout. In a big space like this one, make sure that at least the front legs of furniture are on the rug to help visually bring items together.
