Styling a coffee table can be tricky though; the vignette generally needs to be lower in height, and pretty from all angles. There's no walls to lean against so everything must be freestanding.

I find with square or rectangular coffee tables it can be easier if you divide the space into a grid. The coffee table below has a group of items in each 'square'; flowers in one, a stack of books in the other and so on.

Here's another example, with a central group of flowers. Here, the stacks of books serve as a great alternative to a tray to group small items.

This coffee table is a little more ecclectic, with a scattering or objects. Love the tall glass vases here!
