A large black bookshelf makes a striking home for this living room's books, photos and artwork. To temper its dark color, the rug and pendant are light. The golden coffee table is a nice balanced note between the two extremes.
In this living room, to create a light backdrop for the furnishings, designers selected a pretty neutral for the walls: Benjamin Moore White Dove. The pale color also helped showcase the unique black-pained windows.
This eclectic living room features a black-and-white-striped area rug and gold round coffee table. Several small red-framed mirrors are arranged gallery style on a nearby wall, while red and yellow throw pillows provide an additional pop of color in the neutral room.
This gold contemporary coffee table features a glass topping, allowing visitors a peek at the neutral patterned area rug below. Yellow and gray hand blown glass vases sit atop the table with other decorative accents.
A large open wall connects this indoor living room to the outdoors and gives the already open design room an even more spacious feel. A circular gold coffee table serves as the center of the living room space. Light gray sofas face into the table and a pair of midcentury modern chairs contribute additional seating.
A large gray sectional is decorated with white, gray and purple throw pillows. Gold geometric coffee tables add a shine to the room and fill the space between the sofa and the patterned armchair. Yellow-gold wall art brings color to the white walls and compliments the gold chandelier. An orange table lamp adds an extra pop of color.
The warm glow of the fireplace steals the eye against the cool tones of this neutral living room. A thick mantel frames the fireplace between two windows with bamboo blinds and beige curtains. The coffee table centered between the furniture features a dainty gold frame and gold tinted glass top.
Another great way to generate visual interest? Mix and match pieces with opposing textures. In this contemporary sitting room, designer Raegan Ford paired delicate gold swans with rougher materials, like geodes and glass beads, to keep all eyes on her coffee table.
Designer Michael Habachy topped a coffee table purchased at a Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams warehouse sale with a gold-studded tray by L'Objet and coffee table book, magnified by a Ralph Lauren crystal lens. Habachy used these items in a condo at The Residences at Mandarin Oriental, Atlanta.
Hints of gold -- in the basket, candleholders and planter -- elevate the wood coffee table and catch the light that comes streaming in from the windows. When they're entertaining guests, the owners can use the serving tray to deliver drinks from the kitchen.
A deep royal blue sofa and upholstered yellow coffee table create a bold pairing and draw the eye in this room. Brown walls, dark hardwood, and a maze pattern rug are a neutral background allowing the colors to shine. A gold spike light fixture is perfect for adding contemporary intrigue to the design.
Short on storage? Try this DIY shelf hack. We turned two wall shelves into a mobile coffee table by adding two sets of casters and mending plates. It can hold makeup, games, craft supplies and more! And when you need more space, you can simply roll it under the bed.
