The Coffee & Accent Tables

We thought it would be helpful to show you what I mean rather than just talking about The Coffee & Accent Tables. I pulled four average-looking sofas and paired them with visually interesting coffee and side tables (and walk you through why we think they work because pairing apples with oranges isn’t always intuitive). But before we get into the combos, let’s go over the six rules you should think of when buying your next piece and then check out this post for all your other burning coffee table questions.

1. The Coffee & Accent Tables vary shapes:

The Coffee & Accent Tables

  • Mix the Coffee & Accent Tables up with round, oval, square, rectangle, triangle or live edge shapes. It is the quickest and probably easiest way to instantly create visual interest and breakthrough “samesies” syndrome.

2. Mix up materials:

  •  Stay away from using the same material for all your accent tables. When you vary, for example combining a metal coffee table and a fabric side table, it gives your room texture. Texture is GOOD. But if you are dying to use, say, all wood, then vary the stains and yes, also shapes.

3. The Coffee & Accent Tables look for interesting details:

  • I think the key to having your coffee and side table as the “unique” furniture in your living room is interesting details. It could be a pattern, color, material or fun accent. Anything really that makes it extra special to you.

4. Visual weight is important:

  • I know we have said it before but balancing the visual weight of your pieces is crucial to make your room look put together and interesting. So for example, if you have a bulkier coffee table then consider a more delicate side. Or if one piece has legs, making it look more “airy,” then the other piece could be “legless” and look more rooted.

5. Make sure they speak to each other:

  • Okay, so I’ve spent four other points talking about all the ways these tables should be different, but this is where I talk about where they still need to relate somehow. Something about the pieces should talk to each other. This could be the shape if the materials are different, the era they are from, a common detail, or color palette. Think cousins, not siblings.

6. Consider your sofa:

  • While your sofa may be on the more neutral or basic side, you still want everything to look cohesive. Look at the style, shape and color of your sofa. You don’t want to go so far off the style rails that the pieces don’t make any sense together. Have at least one thing about at least one of the pieces speak to the sofa’s style.
