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.
A black coffee table inevitably ends up becoming the focal point of the living room unless there is plenty of bold color to surround it. This is an approach that lets you highlight your unique coffee table and also anchors the large living room elegantly while allowing you to work with lighter hues elsewhere. You need not always opt to create a strong contrast to achieve this, and it is best to repeat black elsewhere in the room for a more curated vibe.
These Meurice 2-Tier Tables from Jonathan Adler are a blend of Palm Beach style and ’60s French panache. With a faux bamboo design that comes in a polished nickel or antique brass finish, this table is great on the side, or as a coffee table (especially when paired with a friend, as shown below).
