This can be a very creative way of expressing yourself, it may also impress your guests on what you are currently reading and decide to adorn that top with.

You can always KISS that coffee table. By just keeping it neutral and having that one statement piece that truly speaks volumes. Try a large decorative piece such as a bowl or may I suggest a large vase glowing with an array of flowers?

3. Layer it

A tray can be a great piece to incorporate to your design element. It breaks up the surface and distinguishes said spaces. From there you can build your way up. You can have a pot of tea and glasses to share with your guests, or apply intentional decor pieces. What ever the occasion a tray allows you to break up that space and you can truly adorn that top with guests in mind.
