One of the first things you need to consider as you think about bringing home a mirrored coffee table is the traffic in the living room and your lifestyle. Homes filled with little ones might not always be conducive to a mirrored coffee table. Apart from the obvious fragility issues, there is also the problem of keeping the sparkly coffee table shining and dust-free day in and day out. Fingerprints are also an issue with mirrored furniture, so this is definitely not for someone who detests cleaning and constant care. Those willing to take on the extra responsibility gleefully should then consider the style of the living room.
Ready to move into cube territory? Also from Crate & Barrel, these Patina Brass Cubes have a soft brushed look and plenty of modular flair. View two below, and imagine how fabulous a quartet of these metal wonders would look in a large living room.
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!
