A coffee table is to a room as a kitchen is to a house. It’s the hub of the space and the area people tend to gather, not to mention a wonderful canvas for artful displays on a highly functional piece of furniture. Use these tips for making your coffee table a spot of style instead of an ill organized catchall. {images via pinterest}

1. Less is more. Group a few of your favorite accessories, but leave breathing room to rest a cup of coffee and small tray of snacks for impromptu guests.

2. Group similar items. Use a tray or box to keep the look streamlined and organized. Place items such as books, candles, and unsightly remote controls within the bound space.

3. Bring the outside in. Keep the look chic yet personal with a favorite arrangement of flowers, succulents or a single potted plant. A group of orchids is always an elegant choice. Don’t have a green thumb? Invest in a beautiful faux arrangement and nobody will be the wiser.

4. Mix it up. A collection of accessories that includes a mix of items that are both aesthetically pleasing and personally interesting. Stack coffee table books according to size. (Have enough space for two stacks? Split the books by subject or jacket color.) Candles or a collection of posy vases adds another interesting element. An special accent, such as an item acquired while traveling or a sentimental gift, keeps the look authentic to your personal style.
