Take 3: Coffee Table Time

Good looking and functional, let’s agree that no living space is really complete without a serviceable coffee table standing by. But decorating its surface is a tricky task. Dabble’s in-house design team offers three display worthy solutions.

ONE:

Scale, Balance and Proportion
The centre of the room is a prime spot to display a grouping of favourite coffee table books to best advantage. Jazz up the scene by varying heights and colours and adding playful objects like the hand blown glass bowl for texture. The uniform, grid-like design keeps things tidy and adds whimsy to the formal space.

Dabble Savvy: Swap out books for a collection of old records or photo albums.

TWO:

Go Big or Go Home
Give one large, fabulous item the attention it deserves. A matte finished copper bowl like this one complements the lime green surface of the coffee table.

Design Tip: In a family room, use a decorative bowl to house TV remotes in plain sight.

THREE:

Tray Chic
Practical and stylish, the right tray gathers and grounds floating and unrelated items. When it’s party time, a tray is a fantastic tool for accommodating hors d’oeuvres or cocktails.

Dabble Savvy: Contrast is important—mix round objects with square ones and short with tall to create a dynamic tabletop arrangement.
