The Best Coffee Tables (And The Accessories To Match)

We’ve pulled together the best coffee tables — paired with perfectly coordinated accessories to achieve the ultimate coffee table vignette.


We’d bet a pretty penny that every Instagram-worthy living room you’ve ever double tapped featured a swoon-worthy coffee table display. After all, the heart of any well-styled living room is a coffee table that shows off your best-loved accents and trinkets. While home accessories (like a jewelry box, tray, or decorative sculpture) add personality to a space, every great coffee table display starts with a stunning foundation. Here, we’ve pulled together the best coffee tables to usher in statement-making style to your home paired with perfectly coordinated accessories to achieve the ultimate coffee table vignette.

Naturally Polished

A Carrera marble table effortlessly achieves a sophisticated aesthetic that is equal parts elegant and timeless. The minimalist gilt frame exudes an architectural edge with plenty of modern appeal. To channel a luxe feel that feels approachable and lived-in, layer in big leaf botanicals to add a natural element to the ultra-chic design. A horn sculpture plays up the organic elements, while gilded accessories in a neutral black and white palette ground the look.

Southwestern Edge

For those who are drawn to a minimalist aesthetic with a bit of hard-edged grit thrown in, a concrete coffee table can be just the ticket to realizing your design dreams. Of-the-moment industrial design gets a Southwestern twist when all-natural textiles such as tanned leather and pony hair are mixed in. Low-profile accessories, such as a jewelry box, keep the look streamlined plus a jewelry box is a handy place to store your remote control in style.

Mid-Century Flair

Mid-century style is timeless and features a clean-lined aesthetic that proves versatile in any setting. To play up the retro style, quirky sculptural accents call upon the style’s history and heritage, while adding a fresh element to the classic mid-century style. Mix bronze accessories with a warm wood palette to add a little shine to the mix. A clear glass vessel adds some lightness to the mix. Extra points for geo-inspired glassware.

Graceful & Glamorous

A blonde wood coffee table is the perfect foundation for a feminine and graceful space. Light colored wood pairs perfectly with a white and gold color palette. Choose luxe accessories to add a bit of glam to an otherwise modest wood foundation. Gemstone, marble, and lucite details serve as perfect counterpoints to light colored woods, adding sparkle and feminine flair that feels sophisticated and not overdone.
