Accessories, materials, colors, and uses, etc. – when people need help with anything related to a coffee table, this blog is the place to look. To help you, gentle reader and coffee table owner, I have now generated a list of seven things that will jazz up your coffee table and therefore your room.
Coffee Table Accessory Number 1 – Reading Material
The tried and true accessory of a classic or contemporary coffee table. Like peanut butter and jelly, books/magazines/newspapers and the coffee table will forever go together. There is no separating the two because there is no two.
Coffee Table Accessory Number 2 – A Scrabble Board
Nothing says success! quite like a Scrabble Board. Impress your guests. Play Scrabble with them. This works extremely well in conjunction with both #1 and #3.
Coffee Table Accessory Number 3 – A Bottle Flor De Cana
Nicaraguan Rum, slow-aged since 1890; the bottles are highly ornate, and they look good on just about any coffee table. Actually, they look good just about anywhere.
Coffee Table Accessory Number 4 – One Single Flower in a Vase
I suggest an orchid. I suggest that in lieu of a vase you use an empty bottle of Flor De Cana. This adds a completely new dimension of sex appeal to your coffee table, and henceforth your living room, and thus, ultimately you.
Coffee Table Accessory Number 5 – Coasters
Another useful little item, especially for the glass coffee tables, is the coaster. A must-have for obsessive compulsives and other people who can’t stand unsightly water rings and coffee stains.
Coffee Table Accessory Number 6 – A Vintage Cigar Box
Make sure you get a wooden box with Spanish writing engraved on the side. It’s guaranteed to look super swanky on your coffee table. Also, you can hide things in it.
Coffee Table Accessory Number 7 – DVDs of Movies So Bad They’re Good
Because you know what the first thing your guest will say when they plop themselves down on your sofa and notices Killer Clowns From Outer Space on your coffee table? “You like this movie?!?” They’ll say. And you’ll say, “Who doesn’t?”
So there it is: seven things that will make your marvelous coffee table even more marvelous. You can mix and match. You can use just one. You can bring other great accessories into the mix. Really, there’s no limit when it comes to accessorizing your coffee table.
My main advice: accessories should reflect who you really are. And if you really can’t think of anything that reflects your true character, just use any one of my seven items and your coffee table, and living room, will look stellar.
