On a Budget? How to Style Your Coffee Table for Less Than $100


If you're reading this in your living room, look around you. Does the room showcase who you are? Decorating your space shouldn't mean just choosing trendy items—there should also be a mix of objects that reflect your unique personality. One of the easiest ways to do this is by styling a coffee table with some of your favorite items — trinkets, accents, keepsakes and, of course, the books and magazines you love. It might seem like a small part of your overall decor, but the coffee table is a great place to get some super unique pieces in there. Because we know it's important to be budget-conscious, too, we created some moodboards with suggestions on how to arrange a beautiful coffee table for less than $100. From elegant to eclectic, check out these fun styles.

rustic and relaxing

To relax with a good book at the end of the day is one of those simple pleasures we love. Outfit your coffee table with candlesticks and lanterns to create a cozy mood. Add flowers and other rustic decor for a set-up that will definitely get you in the mood to curl up and read.

a pop of pink

You don't need to overwhelm your coffee table with too much decor — or even too many colors. Using just one pop of color can create great visual interest. We love the way this table pairs metallic accents with clear containers and a bright pink tray.

eclectic and feminine

For a softer look, this table uses light pink to tie together eclectic decorations. We adore these pink candlesticks paired with a spray of faux velvet plum blossoms. These two elements create a strong focal point and allow you to play with arranging your favorite accents and books.

simple and sophisticated

Sometimes sticking to the basics makes for the most chic look of all. This coffee table pairs a classic metallic tray with white candles and pink peonies. These three elements alone make for a sophisticated — and affordable — look.

make a statement

For a table that really grabs your guests' attention, pick large decor accents and vibrantly bright flowers. Stack books on a tray with a fun sculpture piece on top. Use a glass cake tray to display other trinkets and accents. Your table will look like a mini museum of all the things you love.

oh so elegant

For a truly elegant look, use a gold tray to hold decorative accents with gold trim. Find wide vases in light colors and fill them with lush, blooming roses. Choose small candles to tie everything together. We're pretty sure this tasteful look will never go out of style.
