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.
Hexagonal bone tile covers the Hexagon Mosaic Coffee Table from Jonathan Adler. One is fabulous, but why not purchase two and place them side by side for a display of tessellated fabulousness? Anthropologie’s Edda Side Tables can be purchased in multiples and arranged in coffee table formation. Whether you snag two, three or four, their mango wood and iron construction is a thing of beauty!
There is a misconception among homeowners that embracing black means turning the living room into a dark space that is black, black and more black. While this look works in some select homes, a better way forward is to combine that black coffee table with a dark accent wall or even a couch in a matching hue to create a look of homogeneity. Add a rug with hints of black, a few black chairs and maybe a dark pendant or two to make a bold style statement.
