Make sure that your accessories aren't static. In other words, don't just line them up along your coffee tables, spaced the same distance apart. Play with positioning, bringing certain items closer or even arranging your three items in the center of the table, much like a still life in a painting. Try to set a scene with your accessories.
Naturally, the first criteria for choosing coffee tables should be the overall décor of the room. Décors can be broadly classified as Classical, Chic, Retro, Modern etc. A classic décor will probably be Victorian era heavy and ornate furniture, lots of wood and lots of pink cloth. An ornate, curved leg dark wood coffee table will be perfect in that setting. Totally opposite to classic, we have modern, which is lighter furniture, white wood or steel and glass pieces.
If you have limited space and could use more storage, then choose a coffee table that opens up to double as a small cabinet. Such tables are not only stylish, but also come in handy when you need to quickly clean up a mess.
Functional coffee tables are manufactured to have additional uses other than regular coffee tables. These specific types of coffee tables are often built more sturdy than your average coffee table to they are ideal for people who prefer to pay a little more for a table that will last a lot longer (and have additional functions).
Durability is another issue you should keep in mind. They tend to get used roughly; hot coffee mugs leave rings and scratches, wine glasses and beer mugs chipping into glass tops of paint, kids bumping into and knocking them off easily due to their lighter weights. Especially, if there are kids in the house or you tend to have many guests coming over and end up using the table frequently. So, select your coffee tables based on their durability requirement as well.
