There’s nothing like a mirrored cube, and when the mirrored panels are smoky, even better! These City Slicker Mirrored Side Tables from CB2 are great solo (think nightstand or side table), yet they’re equally enticing in multiples.
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!
We begin with round coffee tables. The fact that they don’t have corners makes them extremely useful for small spaces, as you can easily navigate the room without bumping into them. Just because they fit well into compact areas doesn’t mean they can’t make a grand statement! The Polly Cocktail Table from Jonathan Adler is a real showstopper. It swivels (yes, each separate level can spin out from the center). In addition, it features three tones of blue lacquer.
