Bring your love of any type of art you enjoy doing to the top of your ”coffee table”. Place paint brushes in a vase or interesting cup, along with books about your fav artists. Or site your needlepoint wool in a bowl or tray, or include a book about the subject. Don´t forget about the lower shelf of your "coffee table". If using three stacks of decor on the lower shelf change it up and use two stacks of decor above. A tray turns an ottoman into a coffee table. Fill it with fun trinkets of different heights also shapes. Use two trays for a large ottoman.
Produce a theme on the table. A nautical theme is not hard. Include a tall sea glass vase, your assemblage of sea shells collected from vacations, your copy of Moby-Dick, or a book on sea life. Notice how everything varies in height, finish together with shape. Here is another nautical theme using a runner down the table. I love the way the decor items all different in sizes, shape in-conjunction with texture flow down the length of the runner. My eye goes up, down, then up again.
