For those who like this kind of style and have been dedicating their house on it, there are still ways to chic your coffee table without ruining your style.

Being minimalist doesn’t mean your house should be plain. Try to take guests’ attention with bold centrepiece.

For example, putting a glass bottle or vase with contrasting colour to its surrounding will catch people’s eyes. Putting hobby stuff will work too. If you want to show your uniqueness, things like hourglass and lava lamp may be a good choice. As long it’s contrasting your coffee table, they work!.

2. Book Lovers

Are you an avid reader? Showing off some of your collection on coffee table can spice it up as well. Don’t worry about looking messy. Just take a few of your books and arrange them on your table. To avoid the messy look, don’t put too much book on it. For magazines, put just around five of them will do. If you’re collecting thick books, try not to put up more than three.

A simple stack on the side or making small stairs out of them will do the trick. Just don’t scatter them too much and coordinate the colours. This time, the book doesn’t have to be in contrast with the table. However, picking popping colours are nice touch. If you had collections varying in size, arranging various size of books will help the look as well.
