This modern white living room has a white upholstered sectional sofa with gray and black accented pillows, black cube coffee tables, a media wall with a midcentury modern black brick fireplace, and a soft blue and neutral area rug.
This cozy sofa is flanked by a pair of noble floor lamps, which also serve to mark off this sitting area from the rest of the room. A metallic cube coffee table picks up the reflective artwork on the wall.
The subtle grid pattern on the area rug echoes the patterns found in the Scrabble board and cube coffee tables. Using the same shape in different ways throughout a space brings continuity and keeps the eye moving throughout the room.
Gray tones and a check-like design on the rug compliment the coffered ceiling with gray panels. A rich purple velvet sofa is decorated with pastel throw pillows. Tufted lavender chairs complete the seating arrangement around the low, cube coffee table. Metallic finishes accent the polished design.
A feather Juju and painterly pillows add pops of color and big punches of style to this small studio apartment on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. Hand-painted watercolor pinstripes adorn the walls and set the space’s neutral palette. A small cube coffee table and nubby pouf are versatile and easily moveable accents.
A bubble chandelier adds fun texture to the classy design of this transitional living room. A neutral sofa, chaise and pair of armchairs circle the room around an area rug and cube wooden coffee table. A bay window lets in natural light framed by sliding white drapes. Yellow throw pillows and touches of gray throughout the room add accent color and detail.
This glamorous white and pink master bedroom features a sitting area with soft upholstered side chairs in white and contemporary loveseat in pink, a modern coffee table, sophisticated crystal chandelier, white lacquered cube table, and pink ceiling trim.
A large tufted coffee table tops a colorful striped rug in the center of this living room. Cube ottomans double as extra table space and add to the mix of bright, colorful stripes. A geometric table below the mounted television brings a modern component to the room and blends with the light wall color.
This contemporary teal living room features a black leather armchair with matching ottoman, as well as a round coffee table with concentric rings that resembles a tree trunk. Orange pouf cubes provide additional seating when needed, and a stacked stone fireplace serves as a focal point for the space.
You can replicate this coffee table, seen in an Atlanta model home. Take six storage cubes or square ottomans, or even six crates, and place them next to each other, three to a row. Then screw them together from the underside and turn them over, says Donna Mathis, owner of Atlanta-based Haven Design Works. For an extra touch, you could add metal strapping around the places where the cubes or crates connect.
The nailhead trim lining this coffee table creates the perfect masculine base for the stylish tabletop setup. A spiked candle holder and natural wood, cube planter are set in a gray marble tray. A beautiful moss and wood display is set on a wood base with a glass cloche.
In this 600-square-foot home, the living area doubles as an entryway and serves as the family’s main gathering space. A graphic rug anchors the seating area, and a roomy sectional sofa is covered in a durable, neutral fabric. Glass-topped wood cubes are lightweight and versatile as a coffee table.
