Add Your Favorite Books To The List

One of the easiest ways to make a round coffee table look more modern is by adding books as accent pieces.

If you love reading, add books to the round coffee table. Use them as a place to sit and read, stack them on top of each other, or even put them on an end table. If you have room, try using one as an ottoman.

Decorate With Smaller Objects

When styling a round coffee table, it's all about balance. Arrange the items on top of the table in a way that makes sense and helps to balance your space.

Layer in smaller objects like canvases or paintbrushes if you're into art and crafts. If your home is filled with plants, arrange them around the coffee table excitingly.

You can choose an accent piece that coordinates well with your coffee table. This can be anything from a painting to a sculpture to an antique vase or anything that visually completes the look of your room and makes it feel complete!

Color Coordinate With other Decor

You can also use color coordination with the rest of the room by using different shades of green on top of the round coffee table or by choosing neutral colors like cream or black and adding pops of color that match your theme but aren't too bright or loud (think sage green).

If you want to create a cohesive look with your furniture, consider adding color accents in similar tones. For example, if you have a bright white couch, don't forget to add some colorful pillows or throw cushions.

You'll want to ensure that those colors are similar enough, so they don't clash with one another visually but still provide a pop of interest in your space.

Don't Overlook the Bottom Area.

If you don't have enough space for books or other decorative items on your coffee table, consider using storage solutions like baskets or boxes in different colors and styles.

You can also use the bottom shelf storage for smaller items like magazines or remotes that may be lying around for weeks.
