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.
Transparent glass is another way to go, whether the glass is colorful or clear. Try filling a clear container with sculptural objects (or one artful item) for an alluring centerpiece: If a grouping interests you, it never hurts to keep the colors neutral. Gray, black, beige and brass are a great place to start. Sometimes all it takes is greenery to add a dose of natural color.
Another hot decorating trend of 2018, the coffee table in wood is once again finding space in refined, contemporary living rooms across the globe. All you need at times are a few wooden boards and hairpin legs to craft a gorgeous and striking DIY wooden coffee table that stands out from the crowd! Those who love the rustic appeal of raw wooden blocks can take things a step further with a Live-Edge DIY coffee table while a smart piece that combines the warmth of wood with sparkle of copper feels even trendier!
