Whether your look is farmhouse, modern or coastal-chic, up the style ante in your living room with these unique ways to fill that empty space behind the couch.
Look No. 1: Farmhouse Chic
Farmhouse decorating is sweeping the country and we can see why! This casual, comfortable style is charming and full of character. To pull off the look, start with a patterned rug in neutral colors to anchor the space.
Provincial Accents: A classic Louis XVI-style chair provides charming extra seating. Top with a chic pillow in a contrasting color for added texture.
Nature's Finest" Cotton stems are a farmhouse classic. Add them to an antique vase or jar for even more charm.
Wood + Rust: Keep an eye out for rustic galvanized pieces to incorporate into your setup, like this charming metal and wood basket we filled with cozy blankets.
Books on Display: Add height and interest to vignettes with chic, stacked books. Pile up a few of your favorite tomes and top with a vintage-style wood clock for a look that's both pretty and practical.
On the Farm: When we think of farmhouse, we think of farm animals, of course. Don’t go overboard, but a simple animal-inspired object like this white ceramic pig can add a tremendous amount of charm. We infused this neutral vignette with a punch of color by mixing in a vase of dried boxwood greenery.
Here to Stay: Farmhouse decor isn’t going anywhere, so if you're as charmed by this style as we are, your sofa table is a great place to start!
Look No. 2: Mid-Mod
Mid-century modern continues to be a very popular decorating style. We love it mixed with a bit of bohemian flair. To create a similar setup, start with a textured rug, like this classic white flokati rug.
Chic Seating: A modern gold chair and textured cream pillow provide additional seating and up the glam factor of the space.
Quick Contrast: Keep an eye out for black, white and brass accessories to add contrast to your table. Layer objects like we did here on a modern white tray and fill empty spaces with lush, green plants.
Cozy Up: Add a larger object to the bottom shelf to anchor the design. A large, wood basket is perfect for keeping black and white-patterned pillows and blankets on hand for when you're ready to get cozy.
Graphic Art: An art print with a favorite quote serves as a great graphic focal point for your table.
Go Retro: Adding vintage pieces, like this retro-style clock, to your setup will add interest and mid-mod authenticity to your table.
Light It Up: Let there be light! This brass lamp is both functional and beautiful, complementing the other brass items on the table.
The Power of Plants: A houseplant, like this easy-to-care-for pothos, adds style and life to your space.
Look No. 3: Coastal Calm
Who doesn’t love the beach? Coastal style is light and airy and transports you right to the shoreline, no matter where you live. Classic elements include light colors like white and shades of blue, glass, wood and other natural textures you would find near the sea. Start with a natural-colored jute rug to add a dose of texture to your space.
Wow With Wicker: A casual wicker and wood chair and striped linen pillow add extra seating to the area and set the tone for this salt-washed style.
Seaside Treasures: Fill your table with treasures reminiscent of coastal design, like this beautiful wood and glass lantern.
Woven Texture: A natural, woven basket is the perfect place to store cozy blanket and pillows.
Drift Away: Keep an eye out for weathered wood objects, like these driftwood sculptures, to incorporate into your sofa table design.
Seashells by the Seashore: Glass jugs and canisters, especially glass that's tinted in colors of the sea, look charmingly coastal when filled with beach finds like shells or starfish.
Seaside Retreat: Even if you don’t have a beach home, with this casual, relaxing style, you’ll feel like you are near the beach every day!
