1. Styled to perfection. Finished with slick chrome detailing, this glass table has another key to success: the collection of pieces on top that sets the tone for the room’s refined look. Neat stacks of books create a sense of calm and order, while the display’s linear lines mirror the striking picture gallery on the wall behind. Candles and a monochromatic floral arrangement keep things understated and elegant.

4. Slender. If you don’t want a your coffee table to make a big statement, go for a subtler design that blends in with the backdrop.

This dainty number is a wonderful addition to the pared-back living room, as the warm metal detailing connects the elements of the room together — the floor lamp, the sofa legs and even the mirror tie in beautifully for a reassuringly balanced effect. Slim legs on tables like this, as well as consoles, sofas and beds, are a hot look right now.

6. Related to other elements. Similarly, this glass coffee table’s bold, confident lines reflect the living room’s sophistication. Note how the table’s dark detailing also picks up on the legs of the armchair and the picture frames on the wall. Bringing elements together like this adds the final polish and is key to creating this smart look.
