The Curated Cocktail Table


What do the kitchen table, nightstand, and cocktail table all have in common? They tend to become a catchall for random clutter… and in the room where most of the entertaining occurs, the cocktail table is the last spot you want to be messy! A simple way to combat this common practice is to infuse this blank surface with a healthy dose of style by creating vignettes…

Style it Up || Literally up. Create dimension by adding height to your cocktail table vignette. Coffee table books got their name for a reason -- they make a stylish and purposeful statement that is meant to be seen! Layer a few of your favorite bounded beauties and top it off with a dash of functionality by adding coasters.

Section it Off || Strike a balance between style and purpose by adding a tray to gather the goodies! This is still a highly used surface in your home, so it is important to leave a blank space for resting a drink to avoid it feeling like a museum. A clear acrylic tray is a great choice since it will blend seamlessly while keeping your vignette stylishly contained. Not enough room for a tray? Opt for a decorative wide bowl or dish. Corralling your vignette with either of these accessories will also make it easier to clear the table in one move when entertaining.

 

Bring it to Life || Make your vignette come alive with a pop of color in the form of flowers or a small plant. Warm it up with the soft glow and subtle fragrance of a decorative candle. Finish off the look with personality! Add a small, decorative object that has meaning in your life. It will be your style stamp of approval and a great conversation piece!
