Top 3 tips to consider when styling coffee tables and mantels
A great way to style your coffee table and shelves is to create depth and interest, you can do this by layering and using a collection of items of different shapes, heights and sizes. Start by stacking a collection of books, use a tray or trivet as a base and add items like a scented candle, a sweet little dish or ornament, a small vase or plant, and some coasters. Add height to a shelf by leaning a photo frame or artwork against the wall or use a tall vase with greenery.

2. CONTRAST BY USING DIFFERENT COLOURS AND MATERIALS
Another way to create interest when styling your coffee table is to use a combination of materials. Marble, glass, ceramic, timber and metal all look fabulous together. Don't forget you can also use different finishes too, we love to nestle together smooth marble with shiny metals and glossy ceramics.
