We did promise you a glimpse into the world of live-edge coffee tables, but there are other fun and ingenious ways in which you add the beauty of live-edge wood to your living room. Floating shelves offer the easiest and the most practical option, and they do showcase the brilliance of ‘live edge’ at its unmatchable best. From sleek shelves that are part of the living space entertainment unit to the slim mantel above the fireplace that comes alive each festive season, these smart additions can also complement your natural-edge coffee table.
Another one of today’s top trends: wire decor. The Apis Coffee Table from CB2 features a grid-patterned iron base and an acacia wood top. As with the table above, this selection is so compact, it can even be used as a side table…which makes it as practical as it is stylish!

It becomes an impromptu appetizer buffet when it’s time to entertain. So why is it easy to get stuck when it comes to decorating the modern coffee table? Perhaps it’s because sleek, carefully curated spaces demand the thoughtful placement of decor. Our advice: have fun with it. Not to mention, sometimes less is more.
