The Importance of Coffee Table Moments

December 8, 2022

A coffee table is not just somewhere to place your drinks, it is the centerpiece of your living room.

Coffee tables are one of the first things people notice when they walk into the living areas of your home, so it’s up to you to determine how you want people to perceive this eye-catching area.

What is a coffee table moment?

A coffee table is an essential piece in your living room or sitting room that can be decorated as extravagantly or minimally as you’d like, depending on your style or mood. 

You create a new “coffee table moment” every time you dedicate the top of your coffee table to a specific style or add a main piece that acts as a conversation starter. 

Creating a coffee table moment ensures people gravitate towards this centerpiece of the room. No matter whether you want to decorate for a holiday, put a special item in the spotlight, or create your own unique theme, a coffee table moment gets people talking!

What to put on your coffee table

If you’re struggling to choose which style you want to incorporate into your coffee table design, consider trying out several different ideas before settling. The good news is that you can change your coffee table moment as much as you want, whenever you want! 

You can base your coffee table on seasons, moods, situations, and practicality.

A coffee table is a fun opportunity to connect with your guests by chatting about the things on your table, for example:

Mixing and matching these items can help you create the perfect “moment” that brings the room together and sets the mood.

Nothing is permanent!

Remember that whichever style you decide to utilize is not a permanent decision—you can change up your coffee table as much as you like. Moods tend to change quickly, which means our style preferences do as well. 

It’s always a fun project to make changes to your coffee table, and it’s a good excuse to get creative. 

When creating your coffee table moment, keep in mind that the general height and size of the objects you choose should be aligned correctly with other pieces of furniture. This will ensure your decorative objects are beautifully tied in with the room while also being the main focal point.  

Have Fun Decorating

Creating your own coffee table moments is fun and can quickly make your home more inviting and cohesive. Don’t hold back! Try any idea you have, even if it seems out of the box. Objects are easy to move, so there’s no harm done—go wild.

Happy styling!
