Creative ideas to adorn your centre table
Centre tables do very good justice to their name. They often end up being the literal 'centre of attraction' of your living room, not only because of how they look but also because of their myriad uses. In order to turn this focal point into something yet more aesthetic and attractive, you can acquire quite a lot of ingenious and artistic ideas.
Plant lovers' go-to place
'Advocates' of the environment love nothing more than to add shades of green to their rooms. Centre tables can be an excellent choice to keep your beloved plants. If you are someone who wants to portray your gardening skills, you can place your most treasured species of plants (like bonsai and cacti) on your centre/coffee table. This will not only create a mini-garden inside your room, but also add a touch of freshness.
Even if you do not want to stack too many items on your centre table and instead keep it minimalistic, you can still use it as decorative item. One way to do so is to go for tables that have intricate designs on their top surface. Tables with engraved patterns look more stylish than those with smooth and bare top. Instead of flat edges, opt for tables that have flashy edges, like bevel or double bevelled edges. At times, it is not about how the table looks but what it is made of. A centre table made of blackwood, ebony, pink ivory, sandalwood, marble, or different metals, will definitely give that 'classiness' vibe to your room.
Decker centre tables
These tables with a tapered steel base have started hitting markets. Their specialty is that you can customise the top according to your choice. This allows you to have a 'different' and new table for every mood and occasion.
No matter how simple and old-fashioned your centre table may be, you can always turn the game to your favour by decking your table with a stylish tablecloth. Starting from laced tablecloths to their silk counterparts, tablecloths never fail to add elegance to your coffee tables. Another unique idea is to use 'nakshi kantha' for this purpose.
Layered centre tables do not just add depth to beauty, but also provide extra space. The lower space can be used to store items like books, while the top potion can be used to keep a vase or other small show-pieces. It goes without saying that a layered centre table definitely gives a very smart and sleek look to your room.
If you really want to go out of the box and bring out your inner creativity, then using an ottoman as your centre table can be a stunning option. Ottomans originated from the Ottoman Empire, and using them as table will undoubtedly make your living room look antique by giving it a 'historic' touch.
