If you had the chance to upgrade your living room, what would you change first? Some of us might say we’d like to paint the walls, or get a new sofa. A few others will opt for a bigger and better entertainment system and TV. But have you ever thought of transforming the space just by changing your center table? It’s true; the right piece can elevate your space while showing off your personality. Take a look at our picks from real homes below:

For the sophisticate


A round glass table with silver or gold detailing would go well with neutral furniture in a modern living room. Keep the space from looking too cluttered by being selective with the books and baubles you want to display on top.   

Find glass-topped tables at Wilcon Depot. 

For the DIY-er


Has your family outgrown your old dining table? Convert it into a functional coffee table by shortening its legs or changing its base altogether. This DIY piece combines the distressed look of stripped wood with the sleek lines of black wire, making it ideal for an industrial-themed home.

For the mix-and-matcher



There’s a reason why wood furniture is so popular—its wide variety of textures and colors will surely match any home. But its prevalence in the modern home can also make it feel boring and common. If you feel the same way, here’s the center table for you! The interesting texture makes it ideal for an eclectic space that reveals the unique tastes of the people who live in it.
