Aside from the sofa, there’s only one piece of furniture in the living area that guests take notice of—that's the coffee table. Whether it’s a beloved thrifted piece or it costs half your paycheck, taking the time to transform it into a focal point of your decor will be well-worth it. To help you figure out what to include in your tabletop vignette, we’ve listed down five essentials that are definite must-haves. Check them out below: 

1. A tray to gather knickknacks

Vignettes usually include a lot of little trinkets or accessories and simply having them sprawled across the table can make it look cluttered. The solution? Trays. All you have to do is arrange smaller pieces on a statement tray and you’ve got a stunning centerpiece.

2. A plant for extra life

Even the tiniest planter can instantly perk up your decor and make your home feel alive! If you’re willing to go the extra mile for maintenance, fresh blooms offer an extra charming touch—if not, a resilient succulent works, too.

3. Anything colorful for an unexpected pop

Be it travel souvenirs, crystals or decor pieces; make sure you add something that will call attention to your display. Try a yellow flower vase or a red catchall to make it stand out. 

4. A lighting fixture to set the mood

Every design enthusiast knows that lighting is everything. Don’t forget to throw in a decorative candle or lamp into the mix to set the ambiance of your space. This can also add extra warmth to your living area when you're expecting guests.

5. Books for a boost of character

Some people say you can tell a lot about a person by looking at the books he or she reads. Placing a couple of reads on the table is a great way to share your story and add a personal touch to your display. Try two to three titles of varying sizes to keep the look balanced.
