Coffee Table Trays

Dressing up the largest focal point of any living space, the sofa, the coffee table should be used for more than just a table for Friday night pizza or a place to store all the remotes. Instead, it should have as much style and presence as any of your home’s decor. And then, when you add a tray to keep the chaos at bay, you’ve got the perfect bit of foundation for styling and organizing. Let’s take a look at a list of great ideas and inspiration on how to style coffee table trays.

Now, think about what you want to display but remember that it should either be something you love, or something you need. If it doesn’t fit into those two categories, then don’t display it.  Your decisions should reflect you, not what you think people want to see. For a good mix, consider this list and choose 4 main categories to fill your quadrants.  If you want more, that’s fine too.  You will just layer them.
