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.
If midcentury modern coffee tables are not your thing, then try out equally trendy and contemporary coffee tables with Nordic charm. The DIY Danish modern coffee table is a showstopper that looks as good as any store-bought piece while the minimal DIY tile coffee table is even sleeker and can also offer a dash of storage space for your magazines.
If you are adding a mirrored coffee table to your living room then it is a good idea to use glossy, mirrored surfaces or even shiny silvery tones in other parts of the room as well. Repetition gives the room a more curated look and this approach work beautifully in posh, contemporary living spaces where just a mirrored coffee table and a small mirror above the fireplace with mirrored frame can make a huge difference to the overall ambiance.
