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.
Mix and Match : One of the biggest perks of owning a black coffee table is the ease with which you can switch décor and accessories around it without ever feeling like things are drastically out of place. The dark coffee table stirs up conventions, but also stitches together contrasting styles and hues beautifully. So, mix, match and experiment with the audacious this holiday season even as the black coffee table remains the one great contestant amid all the flux.
Yes, décor in wood is big in 2018 and this trend of gravitating towards natural materials is set to continue in the years to come. But a fabulous wood coffee table or even a live-edge coffee table might not fit into the decorating scheme of your living space. Those looking to still bring in textural contrast can turn to acrylic coffee tables or those with a polished marble top and a wiry, metallic base. It is all about the space available, colors that surround the coffee table and the style of the room itself.
