An easy idea for a coffee table is using an ottoman. Look for an ottoman, either purchased new or from a thrift store, with a unique shape and detailing. This ottoman, which Nashville, Tenn., designer Jonathan Savage used in a showhouse, has an octagonal shape and gold square nail heads.
Lighting recessed in the molding illuminates the curving gold ceiling and when paired with an elegant gold chandelier creates a stunning, grand entryway to this home. Sleek glamorous lines, simple tile flooring and an octagonal table produce a symmetrical balance that wows upon entering. One shelf offsets the space for special collectables.
Large windows let in sunlight to brighten and highlight this sophisticated living room. A tufted leather armchair joins a pair of neutral sofas to create comfortable seating around an octagonal coffee table. Mirrored built in bookshelf and wood cabinets frame the fireplace with faux column surround and wood mantel.
A temperature-controlled wine tasting room features rustic brick walls, built-in wine racks and octagonal tile flooring. In the center of the room is a wine barrel table paired with leather-and-wood bar stools.
The sofa serves as a natural divider to separate a living area from a dining space in this open basement. Exposed ceiling beams and built-in shelves add a dark accent color to the calm, neutral room. Upholstered chairs sit around an octagonal glass dining table, providing a comfortable spot for dining.
