How to style a coffee table by shape? Round or rectangular, here are 3 simple ways to create the perfect vignette.

Round table

The trick is to arrange three objects or groupings in a triangle shape.

Make sure to include one natural element such as fresh flowers, tall branches or potted plant to bring color and life to the room.

Play with a variety of heights and geometric shapes to add depth and interest.

Rectangular shaped table 

Divide surface into four quadrants if the table is square or wide rectangular. If you have a thinner rectangular table, divide it in three quadrants and fill each one with four items or small groupings of subjects.

Vary shapes and heights with a stack of books, vases, or candles. 

Finish with greenery or a natural element such as a flower or a plant.
