When in doubt, leave it out. This simple phrase can be a guiding principle as you style your modern coffee table. And even if your coffee table is made of stone, remember that nothing is set in stone when it comes to coffee table decor! You can always add and take away items as needed. Start simple
Practicality reaches a new level with the Lacquer Storage Coffee Table from West Elm, which features a hidden compartment. A lacquered finish creates just the right amount of shine, yet this piece is as functional as it is beautiful. One side of the table lifts to provide access to a built-in storage compartment. Books, remotes, blankets–a variety of items can be stashed with ease.
Transparent glass is another way to go, whether the glass is colorful or clear. Try filling a clear container with sculptural objects (or one artful item) for an alluring centerpiece: If a grouping interests you, it never hurts to keep the colors neutral. Gray, black, beige and brass are a great place to start. Sometimes all it takes is greenery to add a dose of natural color.
