"Coffee tables accessorize a sofa," declare Coral Nafie and Barbara Cameron in About.com's Guide to Home Decorating: A Room-by-Room Guide to Creating the House of Your Dreams. "Some people think a sofa just looks forlorn without a coffee table in front. If the original purpose of a coffee table was to hold a coffee service, today's coffee table is just as likely to be used casually to hold the TV remote, magazines, and accessories."

The coffee table is not meant to just sit there in your living room. Mesmerise with one that's styled like a pro! Here are quick and easy ways to do that:

1. Pile of books. No need to go on a trip to the home decor shop. Bring out some of your coffee table books, pile 'em up and voila! They look stylish in there and serve a function, too—guests can browse through them while waiting or just lounging.

2. Fresh flowers. Flowers—especially in vibrant hues—can instantly cheer up any space. A fuss-free way to prettify your living room: park a vase with fresh blooms on the coffee table and enjoy the many benefits of having flowers in your home.

3. Candles. Create a cosy and relaxing ambience in this common room by styling up the coffee table with candles in different shapes and sizes. They add drama and create a specific mood in the living room. If you are going for some aromatherapy, display scented candles. Here is a guide on which scents are perfect for the living room.

4. Tray. There are no hard rules as to which ones you can display and not display on your coffee table. Master the trifecta of book, flower, and candle arrangement and place them all in one elegant tray. It looks neat, organised, and stylish!
