Round coffee tables naturally take up less space and are ideal for smaller homes. Just because your coffee table is small doesn’t mean it has to be boring! Choose from decorative wood, metal or glass coffee tables. Glass will make your table almost disappear and may create the illusion of a larger space. Also use your coffee table as a focal point and choose an ornate decorated or artisan variety that is detailed with gorgeous inlay, mosaic tiles or other decorative materials.
If a grouping of items interests you and you’re determined to keep the look low-key, try taking a mellow approach. Choose items in understated tones, such as soft blue. You can also opt for a monochromatic feel by sticking to objects in the same color family. A trio of vases makes a lovely yet calm statement on the low coffee table below. The dual-toned surface of the smallest vase creates just the right amount of drama. More on adding drama in the next section!
