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.
