So if you want to use your coffee table like a calling card that can tell other people of who you really are then here are some ideas reading decorations for coffee tables that you can make use of:
House Plants- You can use a good house plant as a centrepiece on a centrepiece. It can give a different mood not just the table but the whole room as well. It can really change the ambiance of the room. If you are afraid that you might not be able to take care of it and you don’t need the trouble then you can just get some fake plants. The only thing to remember is that you need to clean that everyday.
Candles- Candles can soften the appearance of a table. It can give that softer side instead of just having papers and work piled on top of it. Scented candles can also contribute to the overall feeling of the room by its relaxing aroma. You should pick the low candles. If you are planning on lighting the candles you have to keep in mind to use some decorative or some other piece that can keep the wax from dripping down to the table top since that can be difficult to remove.
Books- If you want to give out the impression that you are in the habit of reading then you can place books on your table. But you have to arrange them in such a way that they don’t look like as if you have neatly placed them one on top of the other. You have to stack them in such a way that each other is placed in a slightly different angle. You have to create the impression that you have just placed them there.
Coasters- Although coasters are not actually decorations they are a necessity to save your table top from the marks left over by the drinks.These marks can cause damage to your table over time if left alone. You need to place these coasters right beside the houseplant where it can be seen by your guests who have drinks.
Runners– There are different types of runners that you can use for your table depending on its make and for an antique or a classical looking table you can use a lace type of runner. You need to place it in a parallel position to the main seat that is next to your table.
These are just some of the things that you can do in order to make sure that your coffee table is properly decorated. Because you wouldn’t want it to go looking bare.
