33 Coffee Table Decor Ideas
Looking for the perfect coffee table decor? Chances are you wouldn’t be here if you weren’t, so maybe that’s a bit of a silly question. However, I personally find decorating coffee tables can be a bit of a challenge.
Coffee tables vary so heavily in size, shape, and finish that what works for one doesn’t necessarily work for the other. So that may mean going through a bit of trial and error before settling on a display.
Luckily, farmhouse coffee table decor tends to be easy to move around, though. So you can shift around your display with ease to see what resonates with you and your unique style.
Common items to play around with when styling coffee tables include trays, vases, candles, and baskets. One-of-a-kind antiques or secondhand finds can also help your display stand out. And then there are always the 33 farmhouse coffee table decor ideas below!
Whether your coffee table is wood or glass, rectangular or round, this collection is brimming with inspiring ideas to help every table look its best!
Round Farmhouse Coffee Table Decor
Duplicating colors and textures found throughout the room can make your coffee table accessories look effortlessly cohesive. Above, you can see the glass of the table’s inlay found again in the large and small vase. The table’s round shape is also repeated with the basket and candles in the display.
Large Glass Vase for Coffee Table
Think big! Adding a large piece can make your table into a showpiece. This living room keeps it minimal using a large jug snuggled into a basket to create an eye-catching display. For coffee tables with lift-top storage (like above), it is best to use only one of two accessories. This allows you to access the storage compartment without having to move a mountain of items.
Farmhouse Coffee Table Plant
Adding any plant to a coffee table is great to give it a natural feel. In this case, a taller plant plays up the earthy vibe of this shabby chic coffee table. Want a plant that is hard to kill? Try a few hardy succulents, a peperomia, or a spider plant.
Bunny’s Favorite Houseplant
This little bunny looks absolutely serene chilling under this vintage coffee table styled with a potted plant. I especially adore the lace added under the pot—it gives the rustic display a softer look and a cozy cottage aesthetic
Serving Up Style on a Platter
Speaking of trays, they are an amazing add for any coffee table. A tray can help ground the display and bulk it out. But beyond that, it also makes it easy to clear off the table in one swoop. If you are new to exploring trays, try matching the shape of the tray to the shape of the table.
Contemporary Farmhouse Coffee Table Decor
Brass, Glass, Ceramic & Wood
Color is the easiest way to add contrast between your coffee table and its decor. However, consider playing around with juxtaposing finishes as well. This shiny farmhouse vase from Target perched on a brass tray beautifully contrasts the matte finish of this card catalog turned coffee table.
Farmhouse Coffee Table Bottom Shelf Decor
Black & White Storage Baskets
Need extra storage or want to conceal clutter? Slip a few baskets onto the bottom shelf on your coffee table. Fabric baskets are great since they come in multiple patterns and colors. But wire or metal baskets can also work if you are going for a rustic or industrial vibe. Want a classic farmhouse look? Go for woven baskets instead.
Puffy Pillow Power
The bottom shelf of a coffee table is also an ideal space to stuff a few extra throw pillows or blankets. It keeps the sofa clear for everyday use but leaves cozy accessories at arm’s length for movie night.
Farmhouse Coffee Table Runner
Adding textiles like a coffee table runner can help make a living room extra cozy. Picking a runner with colors already found around the room is an easy way to make sure it ties into your decor.
Neutral Farmhouse Living Room
Same Coffee Table, Different Season
This coffee table gets a refresh with fall decor. The same table runner and tray are used in the last pic, but they take on a completely different look here with a pumpkin replacing the vase. Sometimes just swapping out one item can make a remarkable difference!
Cozy Fall Farmhouse Table Decor
An elegant fall table display that has an abundance of warmth. Wood accents and a brown color palette are always a go-to for creating a warm and welcoming display. Throwing a candle or two into the mix also never hurts.
Fabulous & Affordable Farmhouse Table Decor
Some of the best table decor is under $10. Dollar store pieces can often be made to look chic and upscale with a bit of paint. Then there are always yardsales and thrift stores that are brimming with unusual finds at great prices. The stylish living room coffee table above uses painted dollar store pumpkins, a thrifted vase, and a yummy scented fall candle.
Whimsical White Pumpkins
This fabulous Halloween coffee table display keeps things simple with a mix of large and small pumpkins. While orange pumpkins are a classic, white pumpkins can feel more elegant and whimsical.
Christmas Coffee Table Decor
This whole farmhouse living room feels fresh, chic, and well-decorated. I especially love the two geometric glass containers on the wood-planked coffee table. They are filled with ornaments and a mini Christmas tree, but the contents can easily be swapped out for different occasions. For example, you can pop in eggs for Easter, wool felted hearts for Valentine’s Day, a faux or real succulent for spring, etc.
Small Tree with Big Style
When Santa visits, he is going to love this farmhouse Christmas decor—I know I do! The trio of faux Christmas trees on the table is minimal, but they add height to the display. And they infuse it with some holiday magic.
Classic Cottage Christmas
4th of July Coffee Table Decor
The right farmhouse vase filler makes all the difference on this prideful coffee table. Those punchy red blooms were clipped right from the owner’s crepe myrtle trees, which means they were free. Using flowers is an easy and environmentally friendly way to perk up any table.
Stylish & Spread Out
Many coffee tables display clump items together—which undoubtedly can produce stunning results. However, for larger or rectangular farmhouse coffee tables, don’t be afraid to spread accessories out.
Rustic Playroom Coffee Table
Cottage Farmhouse Coffee Table Decor
Who needs a vacation when you have a living room that looks this cozy? A weathered wood tray angled at the corner ensures that the white tree pot and candle don’t go unnoticed on the white distressed coffee table. If your accessories are a similar color to your coffee table, consider using a buffer like a tray or a runner between them to help them stand out.
Keeping Things Fresh & Juicy
The best farmhouse coffee table decor—and home decor in general—often comes from thinking outside the box. And the display on this trolly table is the perfect example. Most people wouldn’t think about using fruit for a display outside of the kitchen and dining room, but these orange delights look fabulous here. Plus, with this display, a healthy snack is right in reach of the sofa!
