Sharp corners and angles can make a décor feel less inviting. It’s why this living room looks so welcoming and comfortable. The round coffee table is the star but there are numerous details which contribute to this balanced design. Symmetry in an interior décor is usually the design of a traditional, outdated look. However, this contemporary living room has nothing to do with that. Even the coffee table features a sharp and symmetrical design.
Isn’t this living room simply charming? It’s interesting that the only bright colors come from outside. The interior decor is limited to neutrals, more specifically to various tones of gray. At the center there’s this sculptural silver table which stands out thanks to its geometry but also to the fact that it reflects everything around it.
In the case of the Ryanne coffee table it’s actually the studded embellishments that stand out most, partially redirecting the attention from the mirrored finish which would have otherwise been the defining characteristic of this piece. If you like the idea of a mirrored table but you’re not quite yet ready to go all out and to let the coffee table become the living room’s focal point, perhaps a small accent table would be better suited for what you have in mind. The Monarch table might be it.
Float is one of the coolest coffee tables you’ll find. Its design may not be very detailed, complex or complicated but it definitely makes a statement. The table has a flat mirrored base on which an inverted aluminum cone is centered. This combination allows the table to appear lightweight and sculptural.
