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.
The black and white pattern on this serving tray brings a mediterranean influence to the style of this simple and pretty display. The orange book cover adds a pop of color to bring dimension to the small set up.
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.
Covering a plain or dated tray with fabric is an easy way to tie it in with your decor. Your trendy new tray can then be used to corral coffee table necessities or as a cocktail tray when entertaining.
Adding live greenery can bring a freshness to your coffee table tray, says Kathy Story of Clairebella Studio. She also tries to match the decor on a patterned tray with the tray’s theme, such as putting a pineapple candy dish on a tray with tropical leaf print.
