A charming peach settee mimics the color of the walls in this classic sitting room — just in a slightly lighter shade. A small coffee table with a lucite base and a traditional armchair with vibrant blue upholstery bring spunk and charisma to the space.
This sophisticated black and white living room mixes Hollywood glam with modern aesthetics. The white sofa with black piping lends an art deco vibe while the Lucite and mirrored coffee table is all modern. White molding on gray textured walls provides a sophisticated background while the geometric rug anchors the space with a fun pattern.
An elegant sitting area offers a comfortable retreat area in the master bedroom at a Connecticut estate. A plush gray sofa creates a place to enjoy abundant daylight streaming through the picture windows and round transom windows above. The lucite table provides a place for a cup of coffee or book without adding visual weight to the serene space.
Designer Jonathan Savage of Savage Interior Design, based in Nashville, Tenn., recommends using coffee tables with multiple levels for displaying items. This one, from Lillian August, a fine home furnishings retailer, is a brass table with a shagreen base and a top shelf made of glass with silver leafing on the backside. You can find a similar two-level design and mix of metals in tables priced for your budget. A mix of glasswork, vases and urns give it a glamorous feel, while the bust on a lucite base brings a rustic nature to the coffee table vignette.
