3 Glass tables rocks the room

To bet on a coffee table in glass is not only stylish, it is smart too. The glass magnifies because you see other decor through it. In some cases, the glass table almost disappears so you can barely see it in the room. Sure it may not be the most practical piece of furniture but sometimes vanity simpley must come first.

4 Double Trouble

To use two small coffee tables beside each other is wery hot right now! It gives the room a sense of more space and an exciting fresh impression. If you have a really small living room, it can sometimes be a good idea to skip the coffee table completely. Use instead two small side tables next to the couch.

6 Alternative furniture

Last but not the worst advice is to use an alternative furniture as coffee table. In the pictures you can see my coffee table in the shape of a pink little footstool that I once bought at Åhlens. Place a stylish tile or a glass plate above the stool to put decor details on.

Even old caskets can be very alluring as a coffee table. Or use the furniture we have seen most of the recent time, a pallet. A very stylish easy table variant is to make 4 stacks of fashion magazines such as table legs and add glass as a tabletop.

There you have my best coffee table tips. Remember to have fun, play with the decor, move around things wildly. The worst thing that can go wrong is that you have to move everything back in its place again.

Within interior design, I love the combination of old and new, a marriage of history and modernism, romanticism meeting minimalism. In addition, I have a burning passion for crispy silks, dark chocolate and long baths with a fragrance of lavender.

  4. In House Plans in India If possible, you can install large windows for your simple home design. The existence of a large window can add to the impression of space in the room. Not only that, the house also looks brighter and exposed to sunlight. In other words, during the morning until late afternoon, you don’t need to turn on the lights so you can save electricity.
